    Default "Beto's" Moment of Clarity and Revelation

    Former Rep. Beto Rourke said Sunday that the mass shooting in his home town of El Paso was a "consequence and cost" of President Donald Trump.

    “It wasn't until that moment that I truly understood how critical this moment is and the real consequence and cost of Donald Trump,” O’Rourke said on NBC's “Meet the Press“ on Sunday.

    “There is a concerted, organized attack against immigrants, against people of color, against those who do not look like or pray like or love like the majority in this country,” O’Rourke added, also referencing the recent Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in Mississippi that ensnared nearly 700 undocumented workers. “And this moment will define us one way or another. And if we do not wake up to it, I am convinced that we'll lose America, this country, in our sleep. And we cannot allow that to happen.“

    “It wasn't until that moment that I truly understood how critical this moment is and the real consequence and cost of Donald Trump,” Beto O’Rourke said on NBC's “Meet the Press“ on Sunday. Although the El Paso gunman said he was not influenced by Trump, his writings reflect the president’s claims of a so-called [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of the United States.

    O’Rourke echoed the call by many Democrats to ban assault-style weapons, including the semiautomatic version of an AK-47 used in the El Paso shooting. O’Rourke called it a “weapon of war … that no American should own, unless they are on a battlefield, engaged with the enemy.”

    Could someone close to him, someone he might trust, tell him and convince him that his "Man of La Mancha quest" is over? Perhaps he could embark on a national tour of America's skateboard parks. Document the journey and offer it for public viewing in say, about a year?

    he he doesn’t understand that we are at the very edge if not actually at war. It’s a war for this country and the beliefs and values that made this the greatest nation on earth. It’s people like him that want to usher in people who want this country to become a third world sh##hole like the one they came from. To fundamentally change this country into a desert with mud huts and the greatest part of the population working their asses off to carry the rest of it.

    He, and other democrats, fully understand that we are at the very edge of, if not actually engaged in, civil war. They started it. This is why the strive so hard to disarm those whom they view as enemies (us).

    I heard a jernalist yesterday on cable news get a bit confused and call the rifle he was reporting on an AK-15. Probably the most successful and least seen hybrid Ass Alt Ryfle in existence. Beto probably knows all about those AK-15's.

    AK-15? Is that a transgender AR-15?

    SIG 550 select fire assault rifle. Basically an AK upper on an AR lower.

    I was watching ABC news tonight, just because it's after my local news. They were reporting on the white supremest they recently arrested. They showed his cache of assault style rifles and ammunition. They were talking about banning guns, not once did they say "assault weapon", they said "semiautomatic". You guys predicted it. It's not about assault style weapons anymore, it's semiautomatic.

    They feel like they have the "assault weapon" ban in the bag. Now they're ratcheting it up. When the negotiations and compromise end, some gun owners will be happy to settle for assault weapons if only they won't take all of the semi-automatics. Now the left feels like they have something to offer at the negotiation table: semi-automatics.
