Democrats line up to bash Beto over AR-15 statement

The democratic party’s civil war continues…

Thursday night’s democratic debate was a doozy, and no one is feeling the effects more than Beto O’Rourke.

The Texan presidential candidate has had a rough go of it over the course of the 2020 primary contest, being forced to rebrand his campaign several times in order to maintain his meager 2.8% national polling numbers.

On Thursday night, he attempted to make a splash by announcing to the nation that he was, in fact, in favor of having the government come take your guns.  His colleagues in the democratic party were none too pleased with the statement.

Democrat senators pushing gun control are not happy with O’Rourke’s push. Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) explicitly stated that he does not support the confiscatory push. CNN quoted Coons saying, “I don’t think a majority of the Senate or the country is going to embrace mandatory buybacks. We need to focus on what we can get done.”

Senator Pat Toomey expressed his frustration via Twitter:

This is merely the latest skirmish in the democratic civil war, and with Beto doubling down on his gun confiscation statement over the course of the last two days, it appears as though the fighting is far from over.
