OPINION, A lot of ******* OPINION| Florida Democrat/Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke insists that even diehard Texans have told him that they would give up their guns to the feds, essentially ridding themselves of their Second Amendment rights.
During an interview with MSNBC, O’Rourke claimed that “guns to hunt or for self-defense makes a lot of sense to us here in Texas,” but a “weapon of war” should not be permitted.
The real story is how F****** dumb this carpetbagger apparently thinks America is to gaslight them like this. No one I know who own an AR15 … and everyone I know has at least one for each hand, would even consider turning over their guns, and I don’t even live in Texas mind you.
The Democrats have melted down so far, and ran so far to communism that they have nowhere to go …. except straight to jail.
The Daily Mail reports:
He added that ‘even from those Texans who own AR-15s, they’ve told me this themselves ― “I don’t need this. I don’t need it to hunt, I don’t need it to protect myself. It was fun to use. I like taking it out to the range, but if giving this back, or cutting it to pieces, or selling it to the government helps to keep us safer, then by all means, let’s do it.”‘
He said that these sentiments were shared with him by people including parents who were concerned about the children’s safety in schools, in the wake of multiple mass shootings around the country which have involved AR-15-style rifles and have resulted in high death tolls.
During the Thursday night debate, O’Rourke said: ‘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.’

The Texas Democrat had the gall to suggest that a federal effort to force a gun buyback (pronounced: confiscate) guns from American citizens would not be going against the Constitution.
“This is something that we’re able to do through the Commerce Clause and this is something that is not prevented from — wouldn’t prevent the United States from doing by the Second Amendment. So this is constitutionally sound,” O’Rourke said, according to the Washington Examiner. “This is absolutely necessary if we care about the lives of our fellow Americans. ”
He claimed that gun owners have told him, “I own one of these guns, don’t need it to hunt, don’t need it for self-defense. This is the right thing to do, I would gladly give it up.’”
“So not only is this constitutionally sound, I think there’s support beyond the Democratic Party to include Republicans, independents, gun owners, and non-gun owners alike to do the right thing,” the Democrat claimed … with a straight face.
Beto comes from elite families, he knows that his plan would result in a hot civil war. We all know who would win that war and how lopsided the event would be. So if you think about it, what he is really doing is something that, if he gets his way, would end up with his supporters …. well you get the picture. Let me be clear, I am not threatening anyone, I do not want to hurt anyone, but I WILL NOT allow my ability to protect my family from danger be confiscated. PERIOD.

The Washington Examiner also reports, “During the fourth Democratic debate Thursday, O’Rourke said, ‘If the high-impact, high-velocity round when it hits your body shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that … Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47, we’re not going to allow it to be used on fellow Americans anymore.'”
This is like the 'everyone I know would happily pay more taxes' line the left loves to push. ? https://t.co/I9eevYHt3z
