UNREAL: Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Calls for Gun Confiscation at Democrat Debates

Published

on

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.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
