Speaking in Tyler, Texas on Tuesday, former failed presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke tried to distance himself from his prior pledge to take away Americans’ AR-15s, claiming instead that he is “not interested in taking anything from anyone.”
During a September 12, 2019 Democrat debate, then-candidate O’Rourke notoriously declared, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” He had also described constitutional carry as “extremism.”
Now the radical O’Rourke is trying to downplay the totalitarianism he had previously let slip by saying, when discussing defending the Second Amendment, “I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone.”
But he still criticized constitutional carry: “I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now. And that we listen to law enforcement, which Greg Abbott refused to do. He turned his back on them when he signed that permitless carry bill that endangers the lives of law enforcement in a state that’s seen more cops and sheriff’s deputies gunned down than in any other.”
Like his fellow Democrats who hilariously try to paint themselves as law-and-order candidates, O’Rourke doesn’t care about the safety of police officers. He wants to disarm American citizens.
