When Beto O’Rourke was running for president, he said during a debate that “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15!” It got massive applause from the liberal audience.
Now that he is running for governor of Texas, he is trying to back-pedal and claim that he is not coming for anyone’s guns.
He really thinks people are this stupid.
Beto O’Rourke Now Wants Texans to Believe He Won’t Confiscate Their AR-15s
Remember Beto O’Rourke? I know it’s hard but he was that guy who ran against Sen. Ted Cruz (R) and lost who then ran for president and also failed at that. One of the contributing factors to each of those losses was his extreme stance on gun control where he proudly declared, more than once, he wanted to confiscate commonly-owned rifles from law-abiding citizens.
Now O’Rourke is running for governor in Texas where he is now saying he does not want to confiscate AR-15s, AK-47s, and the like from American citizens.
“I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment,” he said during a recent campaign stop, according to KLTV. “I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now. And that we listen to law enforcement, which Greg Abbott refused to do. He turned his back on them when he signed that permitless carry bill that endangers the lives of law enforcement in a state that’s seen more cops and sheriff’s deputies gunned down than in any other.”
Here’s a flashback to what Beto said just a few years ago:

Are we supposed to believe Beto then or Beto now?
