During the Democrat debate in Houston, failing 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke made waves when he vowed to confiscate every single lawfully owned AR-15.
Beto, whose campaign never took off the ground nor resonated with Democrat voters, has finally found his niche – gun Nazi.
Beto O’Rourke’s vow during the third round of Democratic presidential debates “to take your AR-15, your AK-47” if elected president appears to be a direct reversal of his stance last year.
The former Texas congressman shared an emotional anecdote about children who were killed by a mass shooter in Odessa, Texas, on Sept. 1.
When asked by ABC’s “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir about whether he was proposing “taking guns” away from legal gun owners, O’Rourke said he was – particularly guns “designed to kill people on the battlefield.”
“When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15. And that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa and Midland,” he said.
“There weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time,” he said, then vowed, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore!” [New York Post]
In order to generate interest, PR, and TV appearances, Beto has been politicizing gun violence for his own benefit.
Don’t believe me? Let Beto tell you for himself.
Just one year ago, in 2018, Beto O’Rourke gave an interview where he meekly told Americans, you can keep your AR-15’s, bro.
To be clear, what Beto actually said was, “if you purchased that AR-15 and you own it, keep it.”
Of course that normal/common sense approach didn’t benefit his campaign, and Beto fell further and further down the polls.
Now, however, Beto is spewing the sort of radical rhetoric that leftist kooks want to hear, so their ears are perking up, and now people are listening to Beto.
Let’s face it, Beto doesn’t care that he’s campaigning off the bodies of dead American. As you can clearly see, he’s not a man of built of conviction, he’s a man made of “opportunity.”
Last night proved Beto would do anything to get ahead. He promised confiscation of commonly-owned rifles – leaving law-abiding Americans defenseless.
Beto is so desperate he‘s fundraising by selling t-shirts with his confiscation promise on it – DISGUSTING.
