Proof That Anti-Gunner Politicians Think That We’re Clueless: Beto Says Will Ban ARs And AKs But Not Hunting Rifles

Beto O’Rourke, if you’re not familiar with him, is a rampantly anti-gun politician from Texas running to be the nominee for the Democratic Presidential candidate against Donald Trump in 2020. Unfortunately, like literally every other Democratic Presidential candidate this time around, Beto (as people tend to call him even though his name is Robert Francis O’Rourke) wants to take all of our rifles. But, apparently, he thinks that we’re stupid, too.

What do I mean? Well, while he has gone on record as saying that he wants to take all of our AR-15s and AK-47s, he now says that he doesn’t want to take our hunting rifles (small consolation to my friend who hunts deer with his AR). AWR Hawkins writes,

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Democrat presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke confirmed his support for gun confiscation but made clear he does plan on taking away hunting rifles.

Cuomo began the segment by asking, “Are you, in fact, in favor of gun confiscation.”

O’Rourke responded, “Yes,” then  went on to emphasize certain types of guns he wishes to confiscate. Those include AR-15 and AK-47 rifles and their variants.

O’Rourke said, “When it comes to those weapons, Chris, the answer [to the confiscation question] is ‘yes.’ But when it comes to firearms used for hunting or self-defense the answer is ‘no.’ And I don’t want you or anyone else to get into the fear mongering, that some have fallen prey to, saying that the government is going to come and take all your guns.”

During the September 12, Democrat debate O’Rourke said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” The next morning, during a MSNBC interview, he stressed that it will be “mandatory” to hand over AR-15s under his ban.

While speaking to reporters in Plano, Texas, last weekend O’Rourke made clear his plans to enforce the ban including fining citizens into compliance.

But he asked Cuomo to avoid fear mongering.

So, Beto asked Cuomo to avoid fearmongering, but who exactly is stirring up fear about ARs and AKs except anti-gunner politicians like Beto? If that’s not the pot calling the kettle black, then I don’t know what is.

And the nerve and blatant arrogance for him to say that these rifles aren’t used for hunting or self-defense! How in the world did this guy get into office in Texas?

But, while I think that Beto is a horrible choice for President in 2020, just remember that he is exactly what the Democratic Party is putting forward for that position.

This kind of insanity has to stop, and, whether you choose to vote Republican or Libertarian or another third party, it’s pretty clear that if you believe in the Constitution and if you believe in gun rights, you won’t be able to vote Democrat for President in 2020.

  1. When are these politicians constituents going to realize they can have these politicians removed from office for violation of Oath of Office? When they are sworn into office, they are sworn to UPHOLD and DEFEND the US CONSTITUTION. Gun Control and confiscation violates the second amendment along with a substantial number of other amendments in the Bill of Rights (read CIVIL RIGHTS) A state that upholds the US Constitution can have it’s Attorney General file a felony warrant issued directly. The State AttyGen can also go to the US Atty Gen with charges. Know how to use the system… The first one removed will lead to an avalanche! (attacking the US Constitution while in office is also known as high treason)

    • Unfortunately, my friend, the constituents are just too apathetic to do anything but continue to vote “these politicians” back into office. What we, the people, need to do is to start a grassroots movement to elect anyone except Democrats or Republicans into our Congressional seats! Vote Green Party, Independent Party or Libertarian Party and get rid of the R & D gridlock in DC. Tell “these politicians” WE’VE HAD ENOUGH!!

  2. Unfortunately, he IS the actual human equivalent of Alfred E. Newman, so ignorant he thinks we are.

  3. OK, let’s give up our AR-15s and AKs, after all they are unique, right? Oh, wait what about Mini-30s, Mini-14s,
    M1 carbines, M1 Garands, semi-auto shotguns, semi-auto 30-06 hunting rifles? Functionally, they are all the
    same. But I’m not worried, Beto or any other Demoncrat will never come after any of those right?

  4. The thing with Francis is that a man who’s music ive listened to and enjoyed for many, many years i now longer listen to. I told Willy to quit the gungie weed and leave black alone itll fry your brain. Ya didnt listen and now look at ya. Brain dead . Supporting puto beto. Crap damn it

  5. The ultimate irony is that even the possibility of this dipshit getting nominated leads people to purchase black market guns, and/or increases off the books private sales.

  6. Many of the people who govern us, and the people who want to govern us, are really ignorant about so many important subjects. They want to diminish or eliminate our second amendment rights, but they don’t know anything about guns. They destroyed our health insurance system, but they didn’t understand insurance or the benefits of a free, competitive market. It has been 18 years since 9/11, but most of them have still not read the Koran and they probably can’t even spell jihadist. Most of them have only cursory knowledge about the threats of Iran, China, and Russia. I say most, not all. We have some brilliant people in government also, and President Donald Trump is one of them.

  7. Beto is a first class imbecile. He wants the people to fear the government not the other way around.
