When Obama was president, people called him America’s greatest gun salesman because every time he talked about gun control, sales would go through the roof.
Now Beto O’Rourke is getting in on that action. After Beto declared his intentions to confiscate guns at the last Democrat debate, one Arizona gun store decided to do a sale in his name.
It worked out pretty well for them.
CNS News reports:
‘SOLD OUT’: Arizona Gun Store Offers ‘Beto Specials’ on AR15s and AK47s
In response to Beto O’Rourke’s “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47” threat, a Tempe, Arizona gun store owner ran a “Beto Specials” promotion the next morning – selling out of both types of rifles by that afternoon.
When O’Rourke made the claim during Thursday night’s Democrat presidential candidate debate, Alpha Dog Firearms Owner Matt Boggs was outraged, he says in an interview with The HolloNet:
“I saw the comments that he made, and I was kinda like, ‘You know what: the Hell with this guy.’”
Boggs said O’Rourke’s made determined to sell more guns – even if it meant losing money on them. So, the next morning he announced his “Beto Specials” on AR15 and AK47 rifles on his store’s Facebook page…
Later that day, they were sold out:
UPDATE: SOLD OUT. More deals will be on the website soon. Y’all broke our internet today!!!
Beto O’Rourke finally ripped the mask off his own party and told us what they’ve wanted to do all along.
From National Review:
Yes, They Are Coming for Your Guns
At the Democratic-primary debate in Houston last night, Beto O’Rourke formally killed off one of the gun-control movement’s favorite taunts: The famous “Nobody is coming for your guns, wingnut.” Asked bluntly whether he was proposing confiscation, O’Rourke abandoned the disingenuous euphemisms that have hitherto marked his descent into extremism, and confirmed as plainly as can be that he was. “Hell yes,” he said, “we’re going to take your AR-15.”
O’Rourke’s plan has been endorsed in full by Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, and is now insinuating its way into the manifestos of gun-control groups nationwide. Presumably, this was O’Rourke’s intention. But he — and his party — would do well to remember that there is a vast gap between the one-upmanship and playacting that is de rigueur during primary season, and the harsh reality on the ground.
Democrats really shot themselves in the foot on this one.
