One of the biggest takeaways from Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate on ABC, was that the radical left wasn’t shy about telling the public what their plans for guns were. At one point, former Congressman Beto O’Rourke (TX) was raging and promised: “Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” It was a radical declaration that went under-discussed during CNN’s post-debate analysis and didn’t seem to concern anyone on the panel.
“I think Beto had an outstanding night. Passionate, commanding in a way he hasn't been before. It’s as if he’s finally figured out why he's in the race,” touted former Obama official David Axelrod.
As evidence of that newfound meaning for O’Rourke’s campaign, host Anderson Cooper reminded Axelrod: “He did, at one point, you know, if you have an AK-47, AR-15, we’re going to take it away.”
“Which is the nightmare of everybody who owns an AR-15,” Cooper quipped.
