"Hell Yes!" It's Time for Beto O'Rourke to Drop Out of the Presidential Race

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “"Hell Yes!" It's Time for Beto O'Rourke to Drop Out of the Presidential Race”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Beto O’Rourke made it clear during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in Houston: He’s not just going for woke. He’s going for broke. And he may have irrevocably damaged his campaign in the process after the answer he gave on gun control.

ABC News debate moderator David Muir asked O’Rourke to confirm he was planning on confiscating guns as president during a segment on mass shootings and gun control. The former El Paso Congressman answered “Hell yes!”:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

O’ROURKE: And, I want to say this — I’m listening to the people of this country, the day after I proposed doing that, I went to a gun show in Conway, Arkansas. To meet with those who were selling AR-15s and those who were buying those weapons and you might be surprised, there was some common ground there. Folks who said, “I would give that up, cut it to pieces, I don’t need this weapon to hunt, to defend myself. It is a weapon of war.” So, let’s do the right thing, but let’s bring everyone in America into the conversation. Republicans, Democrats, gun owners and non-gun owners alike.
