Beto O’Rourke has a sick new plan that will affect millions of gun owners
Democrats have made restricting Americans’ Second Amendment rights a top priority.
Using lies and scare tactics, they want to rip guns out of the hands of everyone in America.
And Beto O’Rourke, who is gunning for the presidency, just announced a sick new plan that will affect millions of gun owners.
Being the latest Democrat to announce his run for President, Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is making his positions on the issues known, quickly eroding any perception of him being a moderate Democrat.
Already, he has announced his support for late-term, third-trimester abortion.
But in his latest move, he is throwing his support behind an outright ban on the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15.
In February 2018 interview with CBS News O’Rourke supported banning bump stocks and made clear his belief that AR-15s ought not be sold in America. He said, “I think banning bump stocks makes a lot of sense. … I don’t know that we should raise the age for buying an AR-15 I just don’t think we should be selling AR-15s in this country.” And on October 18, 2018, O’Rourke noted Texas’ proud gun heritage then explained his desire for Texas to lead they way on gun control by adopting the gun laws being pushed for everyone else.
He is now making gun control a central component of his push for the Democrat presidential nomination.
In an interview published by the Hill, O’Rourke said current AR-15 owners ought to be able to keep their firearms, but further sales of the rifles in America ought to be prohibited. In the building up to his call for a ban O’Rourke described the AR-15 as super powerful weapon designed “for the express purpose of killing people as effectively as possible, in as great a number as possible.”
On the campaign trail of his Senate bid against Sen. Ted Cruz, guns were something rarely discussed.
And that was for a reason, considering how pro-gun the state of Texas is.
But now that he’s running for President, he is jumping head-first into the anti-gun hysteria of the Democrat Party base.
The AR-15 is not a major problem, with more people being murdered with blunt objects a year than semi-automatic rifles.
But reason and logic don’t matter to the Democrat politicians who are taking their anti-gun policy ideas from high school students.
