Biden’s Purported Gun Czar is Back

Beto O’Rourke (D), the guy President Joe Biden (D) once said would help him “take care of the gun problem,” is reportedly seriously eyeing a run for the governorship in his home state of Texas.

You remember Beto, right? Surely, you must.

He’s that former congressman from Texas who, in his rather bold attempt to run for the office Biden currently occupies, said, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15” during a primary debate.

Who could forget those words? Or that his campaign took a steep nosedive following that very debate, which ultimately led to him dropping out of the race. If you don’t remember that egregious statement, perhaps that time he claimed gun owners have a “death cult mentality” will jog your memory.

Though he said this falsehood during his decline into obscurity—having been long out of the presidential race at that point—his brash, anti-gun rhetoric persisted, in an attempt to stay relevant and in the public eye. You must remember him, but if you don’t, it is possible you’ll be hearing more about him in the future.

O’Rourke may be set to run for office again, despite having little success in his most-recent campaigns, which include his failed run for the U.S. Senate against Sen. Ted Cruz (R) in 2018, prior to his attempt at the presidency. Cruz, it should be noted, is a staunch supporter of your Second Amendment rights, and this reason is part of why Texans rejected O’Rourke.

Incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott (R), who just this year signed constitutional carry into law, has announced he will be seeking reelection. Abbott also signed a host of other pro-Second Amendment bills into law.

Whatever his ambitions, O’Rourke is clinging to this idea that his anti-gun radicalism is the golden ticket to being elected; results notwithstanding, of course.

“Rehashing an old anti-gun campaign isn’t his only sign of desperation, though,” wrote the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, following O’Rourke’s “Hell, yes” proclamation. “If these tactics don’t work, which they likely won’t, can we expect O’Rourke to dive even deeper into the anti-gun end of the pool, and start promoting the repeal of the Second Amendment? As we often say, stay tuned!”

We’ll keep you informed here at A1F.com on any moves O’Rourke makes that could put him in a position to, as he put it, “take your” guns.
