Former Texas U.S. Rep Beto O’Rourke stole the headlines during last night’s Democratic presidential debate when he boasted that if he was elected Preisdent, he would take rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47 from law-abiding gun owners through unconstitutional government force.
“I am, if it’s a weapon that’s designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity round shreds everything inside of your body. … When we see that being used against children,” O’Rourke said during the debate, when asked if he really wanted to confiscate AR-15’s and AK-47’s.
“Hell yes we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore,” he added.

However, O’Rourke had the opposite stance just last year when he was posing as a moderate in his attempt to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz. O’Rourke explicitly stated he had no problem with law-abiding gun owners possessing AR-15s during an appearance on “The Chad Hasty Show” on 790 KFYO while he was running for Senate.
“To be clear they should have them, if you purchased that AR-15, if you own it, keep it, continue to use it responsibly,” O’Rourke said of so-called assault rifles in 2018.

O’Rourke, once considered the rising star of the Democratic Party, has failed to gain any traction as a presidential candidate. He has stayed near 1 percent in the polls throughout his fledgling campaign, and left-wing pollster Nate Silver has indicated he has virtually zero chance of winning the nomination.
“Lots of candidates have hoped to come back from polling in the low single digits to win their nominations, and almost none of them have done it,” Silver explained.
“A somewhat larger group have emerged as factors in races that they ultimately didn’t win — Rick Santorum in 2012, for example — but elections aren’t something where close really counts. Nor are any of these candidates polling especially well in Iowa or New Hampshire, which is the path that dark-horse candidates (such as Carter or Santorum) usually take to enter the top tier,” he added.
O’Rourke has gotten more media attention since exploiting the mass shooting in his home town of El Paso, TX to gain headlines, and subsequently strengthening his gun control stance. However, this has not helped his campaign at all, according to Silver’s analysis.
“O’Rourke saw a spike in media attention following the mass shooting in his home town of El Paso, Texas, and his support in polls didn’t move much after that, either,” Silver said.
O’Rourke’s flip-flopping is not likely to help his presidential chances, and his extreme position on gun confiscation may backfire. O’Rourke’s irresponsible rhetoric will serve to galvanize Republicans by proving them correct in their assertion that Democrats are coming to destroy the 2nd Amendment and seize guns from law-abiding Americans.

Parkland Father Demands for Red Flag Laws to be Used on Kaitlin Bennett Following Campus Gang Attack
Kaitlin Bennett’s rights are under attack from the Left.
One day after Infowars journalist Kaitlin Bennett was viciously assaulted by a mob of left-wing terrorists at Ohio University (OU), a Parkland father and radical gun control advocate is calling for her to be stripped of her 2nd Amendment rights with red flag laws.
Fred Guttenberg, allegedly a father of a shooting victim in Parkland, Fla., wants Bennett to be robbed of her core freedoms because he was triggered because of an open carry rally she is planning to show that she is completely undaunted by the left-wing terror mob.
“I will absolutely be returning to @ohiou’s campus again, and next time I’ll bring an army of gun owners for an open carry walk through campus,” Bennett wrote on Twitter. “You can’t keep us away and you can’t keep us silent. Just like Donald Trump, we will always win.”
Guttenberg told Newsweek that Bennett’s comment “pushes for the possibility of gun violence” and should be taken as a threat, despite the lack of any call for conflict in her statement.
“This person @KaitMarieox is desperately seeking attention. However, what she may need is for an ERPO to be issued. Sorry Kait, not getting the attention you wanted is not a reason to threaten gun violence. In fact, your tweet is the reason that open carry should not exist,” Guttenberg wrote in a Tweet.
An “ERPO,” or an extreme risk protection order, is another euphemism for “red flag laws,” which have been used across the country to take away the gun rights from individuals without due process.
Big League Politics has highlighted some of the worst abuses stemming from red flag laws that have occurred throughout the country, including a military veteran who lost his weapons due to a case of mistaken identity in Florida; a doctor snitching on a patient who was suing him so his guns would be confiscated in New Jersey; an Iraq War veteran who lost his guns after protesting the governor while wearing a MAGA hat in Oregon; and a man who lost his life when police came to confiscate his guns in Maryland.
Unfortunately for totalitarians such as Guttenberg, the state of Ohio does not have a red flag law in place, so Bennett’s 2nd Amendment rights are not in jeopardy.
Liberty Hangout posted video of Bennett being attacked by the mob of jackals yesterday as she tried to walk throughout the OU campus:
The @oupolice lied and said that no violence happened and that there were just "allegations that some unknown person splashed water." Students at @ohiou were throwing things at me all day, dumped hot coffee on me, & vandalized @Joelpatrick1776's truck right in front of the cops. pic.twitter.com/XnMUqFWtrH

By putting herself out there and conducting bold activism in the face of severe adversity, Bennett is proving the need for universal gun rights, in order to fend off crazed liberals who would put a Soviet-style regime into power at the flip of a switch if they could get away with it.
Leftists: threaten to kill Kaitlin Bennett, her family, and anyone that supports her
Also leftists: "I don't get it, why do you need to own guns?"
