It’s a throwback to the debate last Wednesday night in Houston. Longshot Democrat and now perpetual loser, Beto O’Rourke screamed out, “Hell yes, we’re coming for your AK-47’s and your AR-15’s, and we’re not going to allow it to be used against Americans any more!”
That has gotten a lot of push back from other Democrat candidates, like Pete Buttigieg who feels, as do others, that O’Rourke’s screaming tirade did nothing but provide the NRA with audio and video that will be played at every single NRA event for the next 40 years. He may be right.
And what was O’Rourke’s response to Buttigieg’s retort? He unleashed an expletive filled rant that went on for quite a while, and ended up not saying really anything. Let’s just say that Beto did very little to help his chances of increasing his standing in the presidential polls.
It’s been no secret that the Democrats would love to take the Second Amendment to the woodshed and chop it up into little pieces. They haven’t been able to gain even a foothold in their incrementalist ways in dealing with guns. Oh, they got cursory background checks, but there are so many loopholes in that, and the NRA has such a huge number of members it’s like trying to go after the AARP for being for senior citizens!
In the end, what’s going to happen is very little. The talk in Washington in the halls of Congress will get softer and softer on gun violence. There will be other things, like next year’s budget, or impeachment, or God forbid, they actually talk about immigration reform, getting rid of that abortion known as Obamacare, or doing something actually constructive that will make a difference in this country. Instead, Democrats have become the ultimate obstructionists. They figure that as long as they talk about Donald Trump in a negative way, it will show up in the polls as being bad for Trump. It’s not working.
In fact, with the current crop of candidates running for president, I’d be surprised as we get closer and closer to next November’s election that Trump doesn’t pull away in a landslide. Yes, for the moment, most of the Democrats running (at least the top three) beat Trump in a head to head matchup…just like the eventual losers all were doing in previous elections at this point in time. Don’t forget…Hillary Clinton was leading Donald Trump by 40 points at this point in the 2016 campaign. How’d that work out for her?
Guns have always had a place in our society. They were there at the Boston Tea Party, the American Revolution, yes, even the Civil War, and the settling of the West. And while it’s a tragedy that a deranged individual can purchase a gun, and go on a rampage as we’ve seen all too often in the past, no one has been able to come up with a way to make sure that the laws they pass are enforced and followed by everybody. If someone is determined enough to take others’ lives and knows that at the end of the ordeal he or she will most likely end up dead, I really doubt they are giving a lot of thought to what federal law they are breaking. Those people need to be taken off the streets and locked away…another thing we can thank the liberal snowflakes for…letting the insane out of the asylums. But that’s fodder for another day!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
