Vow to Ban Assault Weapons Gives O’Rourke Debate Breakout

WASHINGTON (AP) — For a few moments anyway, there was a sense of what people once called “Beto-mania.”

Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke delivered a debate performance on Thursday in Houston that at times reminded a national audience why he became a Democratic star last year — even as he lost a Senate race.

Asked about a mandatory federal buyback of assault weapons that he has endorsed since a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in his native El Paso, killing 22 people, O’Rourke delivered one of the night’s few memorable lines. “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47, and we’re not going to allow it to be used against your fellow Americans anymore,” he said.

That allowed O’Rourke — who suspended his campaign for nearly two weeks to head home and attend vigils and visit victims who remained hospitalized after the mass shooting — to assert ownership of the issue of gun control in a way none of the other nine candidates onstage could.

On a night that was supposed to feature sniping between White House hopefuls with better polling numbers, those rivals instead took time to praise O’Rourke.

I wonder who is going to try to top him, and how?

He's done. This was another great LOL from last night

After Biden said a president couldn’t ban assault weapons with an executive order, the same way Trump can't do it either, Kamala Harris said “Well, I mean, I would just say, hey, Joe, instead of saying, ‘No, we can't,’ let's say, ‘Yes, we can.’

That's her answer??? Where is the face palm emoji when you need it? :lol:

I'll give him credit for having the balls to actually come out and say it.

Beto never had a chance. Now he's just trying to line up that MSNBC hosting job.

Well he has a point, the lobbyists did their job well and there are 10 million or so in circulation. Banning them at this point without trying to address that is kinda pissing in the wind. Buy back the ones that are actually designed and intended for mass killings, tighten up sales, bring in red flag laws, register all weapons and all sales and hold all sellers criminally liable if their gun is used in a crime and they can't prove they sold it with a background check.

You'll still be getting regular mass shootings and school shootings this century, but there would at least be fewer of them.

I think is was a shout out to UJ-R!

Jesus Christ he is old! How about an age limit to ANYONE in government. POTUS, SCJ, Congress, all the way down the line. Pick a number, say 70. Make them all retire and take that shitty SS check and get a job as a greeter at Walmart if needed. Some of them barely have a pulse, never mind the pulse of America! (that's pretty good right there) Are you telling me a 100 y/o congressman knows what is best for the country?

White Democrats basically can't be racist so don't even go there at this point.

Beto never pretended to be Mexican, he just speaks Spanish fluently. Trump cant speak English fluently. Once again, you fall for Trumps characterization of anyone he hates. How DOES it feel to be such a dupe? Are you ashamed? I"m sure I know the answer.
