Biden Says Pro-Gun Confiscation Beto O’Rourke Will “Take Care of the Gun Problem” For Him

O’Rourke is as extreme left as it gets on the Second Amendment.

Joe Biden appeared to endorse Beto O’Rourke’s extreme pro-confiscation gun policies during his Texas rally on Monday, stating that the controversial former congressman and US Senate candidate was going to “take care of the gun problem” with him.

Watch here:

O’Rourke represents the most extreme faction of the Democratic Party on gun rights. His understanding of “taking care” of the “gun problem” consists of forcibly confiscating semiautomatic rifles from law-abiding citizens, a vision he staked out during his failed presidential campaign, even going so far as to make it his signature campaign proposal.

Biden’s pitch to put O’Rourke in charge of some kind of gun control effort only raises the question whether or not the Democratic party elder would get on board with an O’Rourke-style proposal to “buy back” legally owned AR-15’s and AK-47’s.

O’Rourke provided a last minute endorsement to Biden in conjunction with failed candidates Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. The timing of his endorsement, coming a mere day before Texas votes as part of Super Tuesday, has left some wondering if the move was arranged by Democratic Party establishment elites hoping to stop frontrunner Bernie Sanders.

In an ironic twist, O’Rourke had previously slighted Biden in personal terms during his presidential campaign, stating that the septuagenarian represented a return to the past and that the country could do “far, far better.”

The Democratic Party appears to be becoming more hostile to the notion of gun rights than ever before, with members of the party’s establishment outpacing a socialist with their opposition to legal and lawful American ownership of semiautomatic rifles.

New Jersey Gun Stores Reopened After State of Emergency Shutdown

New Jersey’s governor is vehemently anti-gun.

Published

Gun stores in the state of New Jersey are free to reopen for business as of Wednesday, with the state’s Governor rescinding an order that they had to be closed as a part of the state’s Chinese coronavirus state of emergency declaration.

Governor Phil Murphy announced gun stores would be free to re-open at a Monday press conference. The change in policy follows a declaration by the Trump administration that firearms retail and manufacturing businesses are to be considered “essential” under Department of Homeland Security guidelines.

Murphy took a shot at the DHS guidelines, stating that considering firearms businesses essential “wouldn’t be my definition, but that’s the definition at the federal level and I didn’t get a vote on that.” He had earlier argued against the notion of lawful firearms ownership at a coronavirus press conference, stating that “a safer society for my taste has fewer guns and not more guns.

New Jersey is the latest pro-gun control state that has overridden orders that gun retailers and manufacture close. Gun stores in Los Angeles County are finally reopening following a prolonged back-and-forth battle between the county government and county sheriff Alex Villanueva, with the sheriff now being removed as the county disaster executive authority.

The New Jersey state police had stopped conducting background checks for firearms transfers when Murphy originally ordered gun stores closed on March 21st, essentially shutting down the lawful commerce of firearms throughout the entire state. New Jersey has quite possibly the most draconian anti-gun rights laws in the country, routinely being ranked among the worst states for Second Amendment protections.

Americans have rushed to lawfully acquire firearms since the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic in the country. Gun and ammo retailers have reported that they’ve sold out of guns and commonly used calibers of ammunition. There’s probably not much more anti-gun states and municipalities could do to erode trust in their authority than to arbitrarily dictate that their citizens cannot acquire guns.
