When O'Rourke sought Ted Cruz' Senate seat, he told Texans that they could keep their AR15 (etc.) rifles. He was adamant about this, repeating it again and again. He stated, adamantly, that he "only" sought to discontinue future sales of such.

Months later, on the national stage, he stated "hell yes we'll take it".

The man has no integrity.

(Not that his adamant statements earlier were acceptable; they were not. But now we also know that his promised word is worthless).

The moment was yet another headache for Biden as he struggles to appeal to gun owners.
Well, he's going to keep struggling. He and all the other Democrap twits have made it quite clear that they're our enemies. At least O'Rourke was honest about his ambitions.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

On national stage, running for President, yes. And I know that that's what's the central point is here. You're entirely correct.

But, as a footnote, to Texans earlier, he was not honest (my post above). The man's word, at least to Texas gun owners, has proven to be worthless.

It's hard to be worse than "hell yes we'll take it", but if it's possible to be worse, O'Rourke qualities via his dishonesty. He lied repeatedly in a bid to deceive a few naive gun owners to vote for him (over Ted Cruz).

He has no integrity because he is not a man.

Tomorrow Texans can vote for what they really want. Should be interesting.

Unfortunately, today, too many "Texans" were California leftists, New York leftists, or similar just a short time ago.

I see "vote for xxx Progressive Democrat" signs all over Austin. U-Haul lots are overflowing with "newcomers" evacuating places where they've created a leftist leaning society. You'd think that they would be able to connect the dots, learn a lesson, but they cannot... leftism seems a chronic disease.

Thankfully that's not the case everywhere in Texas, not the case in my N.Texas home, but it's an ominous harbinger and a sign that things aren't the same as years ago.

Has pretty much gone the way of the Dodo. Increasingly it seems that in order for a real solution to a problem to actually present itself, and even more to actually be brought to fruition. That it will require personal involvement, as in up front and in their faces. Apathy is the ally of evil. And to sound even more wise than I can legitimately take credit for. I will parrot a phrase most of us are well acquainted with.

"In order for evil to triumph. All that needs to happen is for good men to do nothing."

These dirt-bags are going to fail big in Nov. The fact that they are so bold and open about their evil ideology (guns, but also well beyond guns) is a great thing for us.

Fixed it for you; happy to help!

The violence problem in this country is NOT about guns.

We do not need a "gun control" council, or any other government interference in our gun rights.

If Joe Biden were an honest man, he'd be railing about the out of control drug problem, not guns.

Clearly you missed the 4D memo.

Biden should review the tape on O'Rourke's gun control rant that caused a huge pushback that IMOA knocked him out of the presidential race! “Hell yes,” he said, “we’re going to take your AR-15.”

Review tape? Why? Two peas in a pod. 4Ds.

Precisely. Funny how they tough-talk how they will beat Trump and destroy the NRA. None of the Democraps have a plan for the betterment of the nation but they run on who can beat Trump and who is tougher on gun control.

Very understandable however. They know they can not take the country where they want it to go with an armed and self-reliant populace. And they are also very adept at dividing the country. In this case, they separate the wheat from the chaff by invoking "GUNS Scary"!

Nah, it will be Pete Buttigieg. He gets the same demographic and more with that pick.

He's a democrat, does this surprise you? Integrity is not seen as an attribute, it is seen as a character fault amongst the left in this country

Not surprising...

Bernie says he wants to legalize pot throughout the country. A primary benefit would be that black kids in the ghetto could start businesses selling drugs, legally.

What an inspirational message for black/brown/white families.....Forget college or the trades. Your kid should aspire to be a drug dealer. Go Bernie....

The Democrat workers paradise will really be something.

Guns? We don't need no stinking guns.....the drugs will be legal.
Got it?...
