Hell, yes! Beto O’Rourke!

I haven’t decided who I will ultimately support in the Democratic primary, but this week two of the candidates who were in the middle of my list switched positions. When Beto O’Rourke said during the debates, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47, and we’re not going to allow it to be used against your fellow Americans anymore,” I gained a whole new respect for the man.

Conversely, Sen. Amy Klobuchar responded later that any government program buying back assault rifles should be “voluntary.” What a wimp! Does anyone believe that any potential mass shooter is going to voluntarily turn over his micro-phallic compensation tool?

If there is one lesson Democrats should have learned from Trump winning the Electoral College it’s that the Pussy Grabber did not shy away from controversial ideas.

So now I’m taking a fresh look at O’Rourke. While he probably won’t rise all the way to the top of my list, any Democrat who gets wishy-washy on this issue goes straight to the basement.

Ammosexuals with assault rifles aren’t voting for the Democratic candidate anyway—so fuck em! And, if the Republicans are successful at convincing Americans to vote against Democrats because Democrats oppose assault rifles, then the United States deserves all the mass shootings, active shooter drills in schools, terrorized children, and domestic terrorist acts it gets.

This whole “assault rifles are more important than human life” thing just perplexes me. In fact, if it were up to me, any gun or clip that allowed for more than 8 shots without reloading would be banned.
