Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke Wants to Ban AR-15s

Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke wants to ban AR-15 sales in America.

Continuing his anti-gun rhetoric from his failed 2018 Senate campaign, O’Rourke recently said in an interview published by the Hill, “If you own an AR-15, keep it. Continue to use it responsibly and safely. I just don’t think that we need to sell anymore weapons of war into this public.” O’Rourke asserted that the AR-15 is built “for the express purpose of killing people as effectively as possible, in as great a number as possible.”

O’Rourke is one of many Democratic elected officials who have been infected by the anti-gun mind virus sweeping the nation since the 2018 Parkland massacre. In February 2018, during an interview with CBS News, O’Rourke, “I think banning bump stocks makes a lot of sense. … I don’t know that we should raise the age for buying an AR-15 I just don’t think we should be selling AR-15s in this country.”

On October 2018, O’Rourke called for Texas to lead the way in enacting gun control. O’Rourke has not relented in 2019. He is now making gun control a pillar of his 2020 presidential campaign.

Despite the fear-mongering from the media, AR-15s function similarly to handguns in terms of fire settings. The media obsesses over AR-15s simply because of their menacing cosmetic features, and as a result, they portray AR-15s as weapons of war.

Confusion is key when trying to manipulate the public into accepting anti-gun encroachments on their freedoms.
