Obviously, go read the whole thing. It ain’t that long.
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.”
For years, advocates of the right to keep and bear arms have suspected that confiscation was the endgame but have been rebuffed as paranoiacs in the press. Such a rebuffing is no longer possible.
The problem with the Primaries is that they are targeted to the hardcore Democrat voter. And the bigger problem is that the average hardcore voter is shifting from a Nutrasweet Lefty voter to a full fledged Socialist activist waving the Hammer and the Sickle demanding death or imprisonment to those who will not surrender to their demands.
So in order to have a chance to win the primary, a candidate needs to convince the hardcore voter he represents their ideals and one of them is to confiscate firearm from the hands of those evil fuck rednecks on the Right (of them) and if possible (pretty please) send them to a re-education camp which is not possible if they have guns.
Does that mean they really do not have confiscation in their hearts? Short answer: They all do. With this kind, once they taste a bit of power, they are hopeless addicted and want more and more with absolute obedience. But they also know that there is a surefire remedy for that and the pun is intended.
Funny to see that Fake Irish Taco Beto has done more for Gun Rights in one sentence than all of the Chest Thumping® groups in the last 20 years.

I think the important thing to note out of that whole exchange is how the crowd roared their cheers after he said it.
And yes, I should have thought about posting that video. Thanks!
