During the Democratic Party debates on September 12, 2019, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke called for the confiscation of AR-15s.
O’Rourke made sure to stress that no right is absolute during the debates. Above all, he used gun rights as his example.
He declared, “I think the precedent and common sense is pretty clear on this, that none of our rights are absolute; that there are some common sense limitations to them.”
The former congressman then suggested, ““you can’t own a grenade launcher or a bazooka,” therefore, you ought not be able to own an AR-15.”
The major highlight of the debate was when O’Rourke declared his support for confiscating AR-15s and AK-47s. He even resoundingly exclaimed, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15 and AK-47.”
This comment was met with considerable pushback on social media.
Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain was not having it.
He responded to O’Rourke’s comment by saying “My AR is ready for you, Robert Francis”.

O’Rourke then replied by saying that “This is a death threat, Representative. Clearly, you shouldn’t own an AR-15—and neither should anyone else.”
Cain had the final word by calling O’Rourke a “child.”
Nevertheless, the Twittersphere is up in flames with these latest comments.
It’s no secret that the gun debate in America is boiling over after recent shootings.
With Republicans ceding ground left and right, Democrats are now more emboldened than ever to pass gun control.
Formed elected officials like O’Rourke feel more comfortable now than ever in expressing radical gun control proposals knowing that the GOP will continue compromising on the issue.
The federal gun control regime in D.C. is already quite expansive, with very little done to scale it back.
O’Rourke is in the doldrums as far as his polling goes, but his message will likely make the Democratic more radical in the long-run.
Gun rights activists may be in for a long decade of gun rights fights.
University Student Who Dared Question the LGBT Agenda is Now Facing the Threat of Losing his Scholarship
Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.
A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.
Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”
Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”
She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.
Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.
Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.
Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.
Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.
Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
