Buttigieg Rebukes O’Rourke On Guns: ‘I Don’t Need Lessons From You On Courage’

South Bend, Indiana Mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg had a verbal tussle with fellow candidate Beto O’Rourke of Texas during the latest Democratic primary debate held on Tuesday.

At one point during the event, Buttigieg, who has slammed O’Rourke’s gun buyback proposal saying it could hurt the Democratic Party’s appeal with moderates — he’s right on that one — told the former Texas representative, “I don’t need lessons from you on courage.”

Ouch.

The two candidates have jabbed at each other in recent weeks over their differences on combating gun violence – and specifically on the merits of the mandatory assault weapons buyback program championed by O’Rourke.

Asked by the moderators at the debate at Otterbein University in Ohio how he would enforce his plan, O’Rourke answered that he expected “my fellow Americans to follow the law.”

Buttigieg, who’s criticized O’Rourke’s proposal a “shiny object” that distracts from implementing gun control steps that enjoy widespread support, argued that O’Rourke’s answer showed a lack of clarity on whether a mandatory gun buyback program could work.

Buttigieg went on to say, “we cannot wait for purity tests…we have to just get something done.”

“This is not a purity test,” O’Rourke said in response to Buttigieg’s criticism. He emphasized that if the federal government were to take steps to ban assault weapons, the next logical thing to do would be to remove those weapons from the streets.

A lot of individuals who watched the exchange noted that it seemed to be much more personal than political, noting the bad blood between the two men.

Buttigieg has crafted a plan he believes will curb gun violence by calling for universal background checks, the implementation of “red flag” gun laws, and banning the sales of assault weapons along with high capacity magazines.

O’Rourke, who seems to be perpetually at the bottom of the polls, has tried adopting gun control as his pet issue to help drum up support for his campaign, but it doesn’t really seem to be paying off.

Imagine the kind of field day the press would have if a late-night talk show host treated Eric, Ivanka, or Don Jr. with kid gloves. They would go absolutely berserk. Then again, when you’re a liberal, there is literally nothing you can’t get away with. Lest we forget when it comes to the son of the current president, Hunter Biden is not only a drug addict but he fathered a child with a stipper and dated his deceased brother’s wife for a year. The guy is the whole package! From New York Post: Hunter Biden continued his lovefest with an adoring, understanding, thoroughly enchanted media last night with a lengthy spot on Jimmy Kimmel. Never have two people found crack addiction so funny, or international influence-peddling so banal, or obvious lies so easy to explain away. CONTINUED: “The laptop,” Kimmel said. Now this is the laptop that contains thousands of emails and texts from Hunter Biden to his father, wife, sister-in-law-turned-mistress, his sister-in-law’s married sister, who also becomes his mistress (try to keep up), drug dealers and prostitutes and colleagues at Burisma, the Ukrainian company that paid him $50,000 a month for God knows what.

Dem-Controlled House Schedules Vote on Reparations for Black Americans — Details

An issue none of us had ANYTHING to do with!

What kind of person with even a shred of pride would accept money for something that in no way affected their life? Conversely, what kind of person would support such nonsense? It is absolutely insane how far the left has taken things. From Fox News: The House took a step forward on a slavery reparations bill Friday by scheduling it for debate and a vote in the Judiciary Committee. The bill would set up a commission to study reparations. If voted out of committee, the matter would come up on the House floor for the first time since 1989. The late Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced slavery reparations legislation in the House each session for nearly 30 years to no avail. CONTINUED: Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the measure, which is widely opposed by Republicans, is “not intended to divide” but to “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.” “Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Nadler said in a statement.
