(Tea Party PAC) – Without a doubt, one of the most embarrassing campaigns being run for the Democratic presidential nomination is that of Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, who is circling the drain when it comes to support for his political aspirations.
Yet that hasn’t stopped the delusional Texas resident from attempting to earn some points by desperately appearing to do something, anything that might win some love from Democratic voters, including a “tough guy” raw and real approach to discussing the issues facing our nation.
Granted, the tougher, edgier he tries to look, the more like an overgrown teenage emo kid he appears to be, but that hasn’t deterred him from employing the strategy.
Now it seems O’Rourke is going after banks, asking them to sever ties with gun customers that sell what he calls, “assault weapons” or do financial transactions at gun shows.
This man apparently has no understanding of what a free market system is and why the government isn’t to be involved in this sort of shenanigans.

On August 24, 2019, Breitbart News reported O’Rourke saying, “America has more guns than human beings.” He followed that with a push to ban “assault weapons.”
On September 9, 2019, Breitbart News reported O’Rourke’s contention Americans will comply with his ban on AR-15s; that they will voluntarily hand over the weapons, thereby alleviating any need for police to go door-to-door.
Now he is pressing financial institutions and credit cards to cut ties with gun customers who do self-impose gun controls and/or refuse sales of certain firearms.
During the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke confirmed his plans to take AR-15 and AK-47 rifles from Americans.
Beto O’Rourke was asked if he is ready to support confiscation, and he said, “I am if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield.”
He then elaborated on how certain bullets are meant to operate in military guns, but he never explained that an AR-15 is not a military weapon. It is a civilian, semiautomatic rifle that shoots one round each time the trigger is pulled. The military weapon, an M4, shoots semiautomatic or fully automatic and is designed to handle the heat and stress of being shot on a battlefield. An AR-15 is not.
After inaccurately describing the AR-15, O’Rourke said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”
This guy is so woefully ignorant of the gun laws in this country it’s frightening and furiating at the same time. If you don’t actually know what in the world you’re talking about, it’s probably a good idea to avoid flapping your gums about it.
O’Rourke is simply trying to posture politically so folks will remember he’s actually still in the race. He hasn’t gotten the message yet. Nobody wants to see his weirdness or his awkwardness sitting in the White House. Give it up already.
And for goodness sake, stop trying to violate everyone’s Second Amendment rights. No gun ban or confiscation is ever going to stop evil people from doing evil things. If that worked, then since murder is already illegal, people wouldn’t do it. Yet it happens every day.
The reality is, it’s going to take something a lot stronger than a ban on guns to stop mass shootings. It’s going to take a fundamental transformation of the human soul, and we all know only God can do that kind of work in a human being.
