    Democrat presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke responded to those who want to keep their AR-15s by asking why they do not pursue ownership of a bazooka as well.

    O’Rourke’s comment came after a gun-totting mother in Aurora, Colorado, told him that he was not taking her guns.

    O’Rourke later took to Twitter and wrote, “A woman in CO told me ‘hell no’ she won’t give back her AR-15. I listened, but by her logic: Why shouldn’t you be allowed to have a bazooka or a tank?”

    The exchange with the Colorado mother, and the subsequent emphasis on bazookas and tanks, came just over a week after O’Rourke stood at the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate and said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”

    The bazooka was phased out over 53 years ago, I think I was in one of the last Infantry groups taking training at Fort Ord to actually have training with the bazooka, everyone fired one round at the end of the course. Pretty good weapon if you like to be close enough to get your ass shot all to hell. The little throw away LAW was a godsend and packed a bigger punch. That bazooka round was so slow you could watch it fly to the target, that should tell you how dangerous it really was. The biggest winner when it was discontinued was the shortest guy in the airborne unit that always was chosen to carry the front bazooka pack for some reason, he usually was so short he could barely walk up the steps to board the aircraft and most of the time someone had to help him climb up, never was able to figure that one out.

    Tanks are rarely in season.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    I don't have a problem with a bazooka as long as it is concealed carry.

    Ooh!

    I looked up what they actually looked like and now know what they were used for ...

    But how much did they weigh? And where the hell could you "conceal" such a thing? Ha! Ha!

    It was a good thing Leo's character in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood had a flame-thrower. LOL.
