New Video Shows Beto O’Rourke Moving Toward Openness Of Snatching ALL Semi-Automatic Firearms

Yeah, that’s a no from me, Beto.

Not too long ago, failing Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke stated, in no uncertain terms, that he was all about openly confiscating citizens’ AR-15 rifles, despite the fact that owning such a weapon is protected under the Second Amendment.

Because why allow a pesky little thing like constitutional rights get in the way of desperately trying to pull ahead in the political polls right?

Well, a new video is out on the Internet that seems to suggest that Beto himself is open to grabbing up all semi-automatic firearms.

Evan Todd, a survivor of the Columbine shooting, confronted O’Rourke in Aurora, after arriving an hour late to the event.

Todd is actually a supporter of the Second Amendment, despite having been shot and wounded at the tragedy in Columbine, and wanted to know just how far O’Rourke was willing to go on gun policies.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

“I understand that you want to implement a mandatory buyback for AR-15s and AK-47s. None of my classmates were murdered with those weapons, 50% of mass murders don’t happen with those weapons.”

“Don’t you think it’s time to get rid of all semi-auto firearms?” Todd asked.

O’Rourke, who at one point said that if he was elected that he would be removing firearms from people’s “homes,” responded by saying that he wanted input from Todd about what types of weapons he thinks should be banned.

Several minutes later, after the event ended and O’Rourke moved inside to answer questions from reporters, a reporter asked O’Rourke if he would be open to adding “additional classes” of firearms to his ban and confiscation plan.

“Yeah, I want to listen to him,” O’Rourke responded. “If there’s a way to improve what we have proposed, I want to make sure that we are reflecting that.”

Beto has another thing coming if he thinks for one minute that the American people are just going to let him waltz into their homes and confiscate their guns.

First off, this dude is bona fide nutjob. Secondly, he has zero chance of becoming the president. Zero. His own party doesn’t like him, his support is almost non-existent, and Trump is a super force to be reckoned with. He’s not going to the White House any time soon.

Secondly, the Second Amendment is designed so we can have the means of defending our rights against oppressive government and to ensure we can protect our lives and property. This seems to be the part Beto doesn’t get.

Folks aren’t going to let go of that right. We all know the collapse that is inevitable if we do. The government then has free reign to do what they want, and that’s far more dangerous than the threat posed to us by mass shooters.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
