Beto’s Back, Along with His Gun Ban

BETO NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Everyone’s least favorite adrift office-seeker is back in the national spotlight. On November 15, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke announced his candidacy for Texas governor. Should the work-shy politico secure the Democratic nomination, it would likely set up a 2022 showdown with two-term Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R). In 2018, the perennial candidate failed in an attempt to unseat U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas). In 2019, Beto ran for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination and dropped out before securing a single delegate.

Gun owners are most familiar with Beto for his flamboyant support for gun confiscation.

During the September 12, 2019, Democratic debate, Beto was asked about his proposal to confiscate commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms. Beto responded in part by saying, “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15!” The Beto campaign would go on to sell t-shirts with the anti-gun slogan.

Less than a week later, Beto reiterated his call for gun confiscation on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. During an interview, Chris Cuomo asked Beto, “All right, so let’s state the proposition. Are you, in fact, in favor of gun confiscation?” Beto responded with “Yes.”

In addition to confiscating commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, Beto has endorsed all manner of other gun restrictions.

In September 2019, Beto demanded that banks and other financial services providers stop doing business with firms that manufacture commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms. Moreover, Beto demanded that these financial institutions prevent the prospective gun purchasers from using their own credit or money to purchase lawful products. Specifically, Beto commanded,

Banks and credit card companies must:
1Refuse to take part in the sale of assault weapons.
2. Stop processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks.
3. Stop doing business with gun & ammo manufacturers who produce or sell assault weapons

Illustrating how out of step Beto is with the Lone Star State, in June, Texas lawmakers enacted S.B.19. The law is aimed at preventing financial institutions from discriminating against companies that produce products that help Americans exercise their Second Amendment rights. Specifically, the law prohibits governmental entities from contracting with financial institutions that discriminate against “a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufacturer, distributor, wholesaler, supplier, or retailer,” a sport shooting range, or a firearm trade association.

Beto was also the only presidential candidate to endorse the gun control “Peace Plan” put forth by David Hogg and his associates at March for Our Lives. The plan’s tenets included, “reexamine the District of Columbia v. Heller interpretation of the Second Amendment,” annual gun licensing, a federal ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and their magazines, and “a reduction of our domestic firearm stock by at least 30%.”

The two-time failure hasn’t backed off his gun confiscation stance since announcing his gubernatorial bid. Speaking with the Texas Tribune for an item to coincide with his campaign announcement, Beto stated, “I think most of us also understand that we should not have military-style weapons used against our fellow Texans.” The candidate also criticized recent changes to Texas law that respect the rights of law-abiding Texans to carry a firearm for self-defense without having to acquire government permission.

In addition to Beto’s seeming desire to extend his political losing streak, some might also be confused by how Beto has the time to run for office. After all, voters were promised that Beto would have an important role in tackling guns for the Biden administration.

At a March 2, 2020 campaign rally in Dallas, Beto endorsed Biden for president. Sharing the stage with his former rival, Biden stated, “I want to make something clear. I’m going to guarantee you this is not the last you’ll see of this guy.” Biden went on say, “You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re going to be the one who leads this effort. I’m counting on ya.”

Following the campaign event, Biden and Beto went to local burger chain Whataburger, where the septuagenarian continued to heap praise on Beto’s anti-gun advocacy. Speaking about Beto and gun control, Biden stated, “This guy changed the face of what we’re dealing with regarding guns, assault weapons… and I just want to warn [Beto’s wife] that if I win I’m coming for him.”

Of course, Biden never came for him. That could reasonably be chalked up to the befuddled president’s waning memory. It might also be the case that given the strong opposition to Biden’s radical ATF Director nominee, gun control lobbyist David Chipman, posting an even more toxic figure to an administration post would have proved even more untenable.

Going forward, NRA-ILA will continue to follow Beto’s splashy but shallow political career. Moreover, NRA-ILA will work to inform Texans as to the perennial candidate’s history of support for radical gun control, lest they be made to suffer this egotist’s tenure.

bobby frank is already acting like he is the governor elect when he hasn’t even gotten the dem nomination. He spouts a bunch of flowery garbage but has absolutely NO follow up plans. BTW – he served one full term as a US Rep and part of a second, does anyone know why he didn’t complete that second term? His stellar (and only) piece of legislation he managed to get passed was naming a courthouse. Come to think of it, it is probably a good thing he didn’t have more successes.

Personally I am glad he is sticking to his guns (pun intended). I am tired of worn out politicians outright lying saying they support the Second Amendment and then do everything they can to eliminate it when they get elected. If Beto came out and said he had a change of heart and now supported gun rights, a lot of people would unfortunately believe him. Better he sticks to his failed narrative so people know for certain where he stands.

Love the coyotes in our neighborhood. They deserve a break from their primary diet of rats, rabbits, skunks and cats.

Would guess Robert Francis O’Rourke wouldn’t really be a break from eating rats though.

Of course it’s good to be King. Unless your were a family member of the the Czar Nicolas Romanov. Who was really behind his assassination ? What significance happened to the Ottoman Empire after his planned demise ? Why are Wahhabi Arabs aligned with AshkeNAZI Zionist’s ? Why did a Sunni Islamist organization founded in Egypt by Islamic scholar and schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna in 1928 align himself with Hitler in WWll ? & Why did Muslims serve in the Waffen 10th Handshar Division ? Why would Nazi’s & Muslim’s be allies ? Why is Mein Kampf the second most popular… Read more »

Well, those totalitarian regimes all relied on armed government employees to do their bidding.

Constitution-abiding non-government employees should not give armed government employees their unequivocal support.

Who are the ones in Australia that are enforcing lockdowns?

Who has enforced tens of thousands of gun control laws (that are even more onerous than the federal laws in many states) in the United States for decades?

Does it make any difference if the person who is violating the rights of a “civilian” is an employee of a federal law enforcement agency, the DOD, or a local law enforcement agency?

Beto never learns. Just because a weapon LOOKS scary does not make it a machine gun nor is it illegal but it might make a criminal take pause. The AR-15, America’s rifle, is, in itself, a symbol of freedom and lives saved. Just this past week we have seen the trial of an untrained teenager as he used his AR 15 in self defense righteously and successfully and on video to boot. If he had brought only a bolt action rifle it is more than likely he would also be dead and that is a fact. Parts of what makes… Read more »

Perhaps the NRA could recoup some of the many millions Pilfered by Wayne and company, and use the funds as they were intended… sue the United States government to revoke the NFA, restoring citizens’ Constitutionally protected gun rights for a change, rather than negotiating our rights away like it did when Congress first passed the NFA, the GCA, the hughes amendment, etc.

He has failed at everything else. He was not even a skillful burglar. He married into a very wealthy, very libtard family, and lives off of their money. He almost has to keep running for some office to stay in their good graces.
