The Left used to tell supporters of 2nd Amendment civil rights, “You’re being paranoid. Nobody wants to take your guns.” Oh, really?
Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke (D), in his own words, is in favor of banning firearms.
“But as the plan we released yesterday says, if I’m president, you wouldn’t be able to buy weapons of war for $395. You wouldn’t be able to buy them at all.”
In response, Alpha Dog Firearms in Arizona sold a butt-load of AR-15s they called Beto Specials… at $349.99. Thanks, Beto!
Representative Adriano Espaillat (D), in his own words, is in favor of banning firearms.
“I agree with Beto. I think that we should not be playing this very conservative approach with regards to a weapons ban, with background checks, with…the whole array of bills that are on way to be passed and are supported by the American people. First, it’s background checks. I think 80-plus percent of the American people support it. But I think next is an assault weapons ban.”
