Beto O’Rourke refuses to go away.
The far-left Democrat is running again for major office.
And O’Rourke’s run for governor went up in flames with this ridiculous gun control proposal.
Beto O’Rourke failed in his bid to unseat Senator Ted Cruz in Texas.
He then failed to get any traction in the Democratic presidential primary.
Now, O’Rourke is running for governor of Texas, and his campaign against incumbent Greg Abbott is already in trouble.
During a recent interview at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, O’Rourke was pressed about his stance on rifle ownership.
O’Rourke finally admitted, “I don’t think anyone should have one…And if I can find the consensus within the Legislature to have a law in the state of Texas that allows us to buy those AK-47s and AR-15s back, we will.”
The notorious gun grabber is going to have a difficult time unseating Governor Abbott with that stance on guns.
During the gubernatorial primary, O’Rourke tried to pivot away from his radical gun control stance.
O’Rourke said in late February:
“I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment…I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now. And that we listen to law enforcement, which Greg Abbott refused to do. He turned his back on them when he signed that permitless carry bill that endangers the lives of law enforcement in a state that’s seen more cops and sheriff’s deputies gunned down than in any other.”
That was a departure from O’Rourke’s radical position during his presidential run when he said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”
At heart, O’Rourke is an anti-Second Amendment crusader.
He’s made it clear on multiple occasions that he wants to take guns away from law-abiding citizens.
The people of Texas are not going to put up with that.
O’Rourke has also proven to be a leftist on other issues.
In his Senate race against Cruz, he commended former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling for the national anthem and the American flag.
O’Rourke also said he wanted to tear down existing border barriers in El Paso, which would only invite more illegal immigration into the country.
Abbott currently holds a 9-point lead on his Democratic challenger, so Texans are likely going to end O’Rourke’s political career once and for all.
