    TexasTowelie (68,568 posts) In Aurora, Beto O'Rourke says he's open to broadening gun buyback proposal

    AURORA, Colo. — Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke says he’s open to broadening his proposal to require owners of AK-47s and AR-15s to sell them to the government.

    During an emotional town hall Thursday in Aurora, a man who identified himself as a survivor of the 1999 Columbine massacre noted that the shooters there didn’t use the military-style weapons O’Rourke wants to take. They instead used regular semi-automatic weapons. He challenged O’Rourke to confiscate those arms as well.

    O’Rourke told reporters afterward: “If there’s a way to improve what we proposed, I want to make sure we’re reflecting that.”

    Most pistols and many rifles in the U.S. are semi-automatic. In contrast, there are about 10 million AK-47s and AR-15s out of more than 300 million firearms in private hands in the country.

    O’Rourke may have unknowingly answered the question precisely how the Columbine survivor wanted him too. Multiple conservative operatives confirm the man who asked the question is a gun rights activist who has spoken out against gun control in the past.

    Pretty much tells you they consider banning AK's and AR's as a START.

    1. 10 million AK-47s and AR-15s !!

    Shit, the entire US military can;;t have THAT many...!!

    And the intention of a military is primarily to kill people..


    What is the intention of those NOT in the military??

    2. Go Beto!

    He is making a difference. He cares.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    He cares about improving his 2% rating is what he cares about.

    DUmmies, "Beto" is a pencil neck geek of
    a Libtard loser that will say anything to make
    it to the next debate.

    He is a gun grabber. America will never
    elect this POS. So by all means, support him!

    May the FORCE be with you!

    The jerkazoids at DU are too crazy/stupid to know this is going to bite them on the ass.

    They failed to mention that Beto was challenged by a woman at the same town hall in Aurora.

    He did an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on reddit and despite reddit being very left leaning and moonbat heavy, he got his butt handed to him, and this buyback baloney was a big part of it. He deleted several of his responses to several questions.

    But in typical proggie fashion, if something is failing, double down on it.
