Robert O’Rourke, 2020 Democratic candidate for president, is the most extreme anti-gun progressive.
This Texans wants to forcibly buy back all the AR-15’s and AK-47’s in America. He even claims that people in Texas want to give up their guns. Sure. A few Texans weighed in on the matter. What they said didn’t exactly match O’Rourke’s claims.
Robert Francis O’Rourke was a failed senate candidate from Texas. He got schooled by Ted Cruz. I wonder why?
Oh, I know. Despite being from the Lone Star State, this liberal has little in common with the rest of the Texas.
The man is now running for president, though polling very poorly. His solution to his failing campaign? Becoming the most radical Democratic in the crusade to destroy the Second Amendment! This is the man who said, “Hell yes” to taking away your firearms. He is pushing a gun confiscation program by the federal government that will force Americans to give up their semi-automatic rifles. And probably much more.
But to justify this radical and unprecedented attack on our rights, O’Rourke claims many Texans agree with him. Let me say that again: O’Rourke is claiming that many Texas residents want to give up their guns to the federal government.
M-hm. Just how stupid does this guy think we are?
On Saturday, for example, the Democrat told MSNBC’s Joy Reid, “Texans who own AR-15s, they’ve told me, ‘I don’t need this. I don’t need it to hunt, I don’t need it to protect myself … if giving this back, or cutting it to pieces, or selling it to the gov helps to keep us safer, then by all means do it,'” reported…
On the same day, Texas Tribune’s Patrick Svitek reported that O’Rourke claimed a “longtime Republican” spoke to him in the bathroom while they were urinating, telling the Democrat he’s all in for the gun confiscation…

Sure, I’m buying that. Texans are coming up to a left-wing kook like O’Rourke and saying they support a government buy back. If they were really on board with destroying our Second Amendment rights, they wouldn’t wait for the government to do it, right? They’d just get rid of the guns now.
Funny how all of O’Rourke’s story aren’t provable. Not to mention ridiculously unrealistic. Have you ever been to Texas? You won’t find a state more in support of your right to bear arms. The fact that O’Rourke is trying to convince anyone that Texans are onboard with an un-constitutional government-funded gun grab is laughable—if it wasn’t so despicable.
Real Texans decided to educate the man.
The Blaze’s Jason Howerton, for example, took the Democrat to task over the claim. “Hey, [Beto O’Rourke], actual Texan here,” he wrote. “I regret to inform you that your request to buy my legally purchased firearms has been denied after your background check revealed a criminal record.”
“Texan here,” said Red State’s Brandon Morse. “I rate this a Texas sized lie.”
“As an American who lived in Texas for a year, I feel confident in saying this is bull,” wrote Daily Caller associate editor Virginia Kruta.
Managing Director of Breitbart Texas Brandon Darby posted: “I’m as Texan as anyone and this is BS. Born in Pasadena, Texas.” [Source: Daily Wire]
It’s funny how O’Rourke claims to be a proud Texas native, yet has zero clue what real Texans think. Pretty fitting, though. Democrats claim to love America, but none of them are paying attention to what we say or want. The left pushes open borders, gun control, higher taxes, and universal health care—all policies Americans are strongly against.
Like the rest of his party, O’Rourke is completely out of touch with the very people he claims to represent.
Sorry, O’Rourke, as a new resident to Texas I can say, we want nothing to do with you. And neither does the rest of the country.
