Can’t see this one backfiring.
Remember when Beto O’Rourke, flailing at the end, decided to go so woke that he tainted the electoral chances of Democrats everywhere?
“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”
Remember when Democrats were decrying that as extreme? Not anymore. The Overton window is open wide enough to make that the position.
At Beto’s role in the Unite Behind Biden event, we got this soundbite. “I want to make something clear — I’m gonna guarantee you, this is not the last you’re seeing of this guy — you’re gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you’re gonna be the one who leads this effort. I’m counting on you, I’m counting on you, we need you badly.”
So Beto can be the confiscator-in-chief.
There’s no way this will hurt Biden with gun owners. And it’s not like there are more than oh, 30% of the population.
What possible effect could they have on a presidential electiion?
