The dirty small secret of that the Left is coming for our guns is not so secret any longer.
Thank you Beto O’Rourke – the presidential contender whose polling numbers hover about the 1% mark, but we genuinely do not care about that.
What we do care about is that he peeled back the ugly gun confiscation mask that the Left has been wearing for years. Their platitudes of wanting “common sense gun laws” rather than outright confiscation have been soundly replaced with a “HELL YES, WE’RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR AR-15, YOUR AK-47.”
This has currently triggered a bit of infighting with the Democrats – but we do not care about that either. We’ve identified all along there is a “reasonable” gun manage public persona they have to have to preserve, however underneath, in their sanctimonious, elitist hearts, we all know they want to disarm us. Fellow presidential candidates and U.S. Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) have stood by Beto and his remarks on confiscation.
“HELL YES, WE’RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR AR-15, YOUR AK-47.”
Democrat Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke – 9/12/19
Immediately after Beto created this thundering statement at the final Presidential Debate – for which he received some thunderous applause – he was questioned by a reporter who was curious as to how he would “reassure” owners of assault rifles that the government wasn’t coming to take their guns.
“I want to be genuinely clear,” O’Rourke answered. “That’s precisely what we’re going to do.”
Beto and his group then doubled down, with his campaign manager tweeting “GET Every single One particular OF These GODDAMN GUNS OFF OUR STREETS.” I guess he didn’t believe his boss was clear adequate with his “Hell yes” comment. While numerous in the political realm think his intense comments not only sank his present dismal likelihood at becoming president, but he also shot himself in the foot with any future political rise in his personal “gun-friendly” state of Texas (comparatively speaking, of course). We can only hope this is the case, but that stated, he’s digging in and producing some campaign bucks in the course of action – he has began promoting T-shirts on his campaign web page that study: “HELL YES WE’RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR AR-15.”
The T-shirts expense $30 a pop. But that is not all, anti-gun sports fans! In addition to the “HELL YES” shirts, the campaign began a push for shirts that say, “THIS IS F*CKED UP,” no much less than six instances on the front. Effectively then. This need to be their higher-brow try to curb gun violence.
California has much more than our fair share of Constitutionally challenged politicians but yikes – other states like Texas are catching up. Beto tends to make no bones about wanting to take our guns, and a fellow Texan’s bizarre description of an AR-15 is completely cringe-worthy – and scary considering the fact that she truly has a seat in Congress:
“I held an AR-15 in my hand, I want I hadn’t. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you may be moving. And the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these types of bullets have to have to be licensed and do not have to have to be on the street.”

Some individuals have offered Beto props for at least becoming truthful with his contact for confiscation. Other individuals are angry he spilled their dirty small secret. For us at GOC? Effectively, we usually appreciate the truth.
