Editorial Opinion From Our One And Only Baish| I would venture to bet that every gun owner in the country knows about what Beto said about the future of our gun rights.
In case you just got up from a coma, Beto promised to take away American citizen’s AR-15’s, AK-47’s and presumable all semi auto weapons (eventually). Even though Beto did NOT say we wanted to do a mandatory buy back of all semi-automatic weapons, that is what I inferred from him saying:
“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” … “I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield,” … “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, so that you would bleed to death on a battlefield.”
US soldier carry semi auto pistols, so I would assume they are next. In case you are not a gun owner … ALL pistols are semi automatic and AR15’s arent a weapons of war, M-16’s which they were designed after, without the full auto functionally are.
Democratic Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke addressed a crowd in Aurora, Colorado, this week, where an opponent spoke up about Beto’s recent comments about seizing guns from American citizens.
Lauren Boebert addressed O’Rourke saying, “I am here to say: Hell, no, you’re not. I have four children, I am 5-foot-0, 100 pounds, I cannot really defend myself with a fist…I want to know how you’re going to legislate that because a criminal breaks the law, so all you’re going to do is restrict law-abiding citizens, like myself…Self-defense is a right that we have that shall to be infringed in America.”
It was reported by the Denver Post that the 32-year-old woman made the three-hour drive from her town of Rifle to confront O’Rourke in Aurora. Boebert owns her own restaurant, where she explains her staff carry firearms. “As she spoke, a handgun was holstered at her side,” the Post reported.
