Beto O’Rourke Talks Gun Violence At Aurora Campaign Stop


WHILE POLICE SEARCHED THAT STUDENT AND FOUND A HAND GUN, WE DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS LOADED. THE TEEN WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. AND GUN VIOLENCE WAS THE FOCUS OF A TOWN HALL IN AURORA HOSTED BY BETO O’ROURKE THIS EVENING AT O’ROURKE CITY HALL. OUR POLITICAL SPECIALIST SHAUN BOYD WAS THERE, AND IT’S OBVIOUS GUN CONTROL HAS BECOME A BIG ISSUE IN THIS RACE. REPORTER: JIM, FOR YEARS DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN CAREFUL ABOUT HOW THEY ADDRESS GUN CONTROL, FEARING THEY WOULD ALIENATE BLUE COLLAR GUN OWNERS IN THEIR OWN PARTY AND INVITE THE WRATH OF THE NRA, BUT NOT ANYMORE. AND AFTER A MASS SHOOTING IN HIS HOMETOWN OF EL PASO, TEXAS, BETO O’ROURKE HAS PUT AGGRESSIVE GUN CONTROL AT THE CENTER OF HIS CAMPAIGN. BETO O’ROURKE USED A TOWN HALL IN AURORA WHERE 12 PEOPLE WERE MURDERED IN A MOVIE THEATER TO DOUBLE DOWN ON HIS PROMISE TO BUY BACK ALL AR15 AND AK47 SEMIAUTOMATICS, SOMETHING HE OPPOSED JUST ONE YEAR AGO. A SIGN THE POLITICAL CALCULUS ON GUN CONTROL HAS SHIFTED WITH PUBLIC OPINION. BUT IN COLORADO THE ISSUE REMAINS DIVISIVE. STATE REPRESENTATIVE TOM SULLIVAN WHOSE SON DIED IN THE THEATER INTRODUCED O’ROURKE, WHILE ANOTHER ATTENDANT CAME CARRYING HER GUN TO CONFRONT. O’ROURKE. I’M HERE TO SAY NO, YOU’RE NOT TAKING OUR GUNS. IF HE’S GOING TO SEND PEOPLE INTO HOMES TO TAKE PEOPLE’S PERSONAL PROPERTY, THEN HE’S GOT A BIG ISSUE ON HIS HANDS. REPORTER: SHE SAYS THE MANDATORY BUY BACK GOES TOO FAR WHILE COLUMBINE SURVIVOR EVAN TODD SAYS IT’S NOT FAR ENOUGH. DON’T YOU THINK IT’S TIME WE GET RID OF ALL SEMIAUTOMATIC FIREARMS? REPORTER: O’ROURKE SAYS HE’S OPEN FOR THAT. DO I CARE MORE ABOUT HOW UPSET SOMEBODY IS WHO OWNS A WEAPON OF WAR THAT THEY DON’T NEED FOR HUNTING OR SELF-DEFENSE OR DO I CARE MORE ABOUT THE FAMILIES WHO HAVE LOST A CHILD? REPORTER: BUT WHEN PRESSED ON HOW THE MANDATORY BUY BACK WOULD WORK, HE HESITATED. WOULD YOU SEND LAW ENFORCEMENT INTO SOMEBODY’S HOUSE TO TAKE THEIR GUN? NO, I WOULDN’T. I WOULD EXPECT OUR FELLOW AMERICANS TO FOLLOW THE LAW. IF THEY DON’T AND THEY FLAGRANTLY ABUSE THAT LAW, YES, UM, THAT WEAPON WOULD BE TAKEN FROM THEM. REPORTER: NOW O’ROURKE’S PROMISE TO TAKE ALL AR15S AND AK47S HAS NOT ONLY DRAWN CRITICISM FROM REPUBLICANS, BUT EVEN SOME DEMOCRATS WHO SAY HE’S PLAYING INTO THE HANDS OF NRA. BUT THE NRA’S INFLUENCE HAS WANED AFTER A SERIES OF RECENT CONTROVERSIES, WHILE THAT OF GUN CONTROL GROUPS IS STRENGTHENING MAKING THIS AN ISSUE THAT WILL REMAIN FRONT

  1. This is not a truthful video, the Columbine survivor said what he said to trick beto into saying that stupid shit that he said. The Columbine survivor believes whole heartedly in the second amendment. Good job failing at being a journalist.

  2. He would spark a civil war the likes of which the world has never seen. Might aswell tear up the Constitution. State governments will call for a convention and you would have open warfare on the streets of America.

  3. Thank you to the 5 foot woman who shut beto down. A person can kill people with a bomb made from home depot items, a knife, ice pic, a car, anything they can get their hands on. The gun doesnt kill. The psycho behind the gun does. Waiting for cops to show up to stop the threat only leads to more deceased victims. Every law abiding citizen should be armed!! Criminals dont follow the laws. Why pass more to restrict law abiding citizens?!?!?

  4. I can only imagine the amount of deaths to patriot gun owners and gun grabbing police officers if this flip flopping tyrant gets his way…

  5. Those weapons are not for just hunting and sport….

    Those weapons are to protect me my family society in general and my country from tyrant power-hungry politicians just like you Beta-male Odork

  6. What happens when CRIMINALS start using knives you going to take,that away too ??? well,what about cars are you going,to take those away from people too ???

  7. Attempting a gun confiscation would ironically cause the largest mass shootings in American history; a long continuous shooting that'll happen simultaneously in every major city, suburban or rural form town to town and across the country sides, it'll last for years maybe decades… There would be a name for it too, lib-tards: The Second American Civil War! But fear not, from the Eagle's ashes, a Phoenix will rise!

  8. Haha. Fuck you Beto, you beta male cuck piece of fucking shit. Fucking pussy. You hat got put in your place by a 5 for woman. You sorry excuse for a fucking human, let alone a man. I feel sorry for the woman that has gotten suck with having to wake up next to you every morning. She'll wake up and realize it soon and find a real man. No human has higher authority over another human to tell them what object they can't own.

  9. And the stupid fucking retards is JUST PROVING why the second amendment was made in the first place. He is a tyrant. We have AR15s to smoke check fucking tyrants. Bring it on mother fucker. One less evil, parasitic, communist mother fucker we have to listen to in the debates.

  10. The 2nd ammendment is not for government to regulate American citizens. It's to regulate the government from infringing on the rights of American citizens. BETO is the very reason for the 2nd ammendment and why American citizens have the AR15.

  11. No country gives their soldiers semiautomatic rifles, so quit calling them weapons of war.
    Next, the issue should be why were these people prevented from defending themselves at Aurora with a firearm against the killer instead of being forced to wait until the killer murdered them.
    We need more guns, including ARs and semiautomatic firearms. Just this week 3 masked men in Georgia with guns attacked men in their yard, but the homeowner fortunately had an AR semiautomatic rifle to defend them. Do not forget the Church shooter in Texas was stopped by an AR from a civilian, not police.

  12. You prove that you care more about the criminals when you use this type of rhetoric, but no worries, he sealed his fate when he came out and said he was coming for our rights

  13. That woman should be highlighted by every major news outlet …. sadly we know this won't happen because she actually makes sense.

  14. I HAVE A SINCERE QUESTION. when i went to highschool dozens of us ((literally)) used to carry big giant guns to school all the time.
    some of the guns were 3 feet long! one of them is right here beside me still. NOW here is my question. why is it that dozens of young men coulod carry big giant guns down the road and into school and absolutely no one was ever harmed. explain this

  15. Expect people to follow the law? Mass shooters dont follow the law, they are not gonna give you their guns. Look we cant keep millions of pounds of drugs from coming into this country illegally, getting rid of guns is a waste of time and taxpayer dollars. And taking guns from law abiding citizens wont do shit except get more people shot. All I want to know is what you're gonna say when you ban ar/ak's, and a CRIMINAL still shows up and shoots a bunch of people with one?

  16. I like Beto's enthusiasm an he's right these guns were meant for killing people pure an simple. Beto we need help in the Senate

    go back to Texas and come back a Senator to stay in this race any longer points only to an individuals narcissism and I don't

    think that's what it is for you. And by the way you had sworn off corporate pack money? the people love you man! you can run

    for Senate on small dollar donations as you've said at numerous rallies you work for the people not the corporations

  17. He cares more about dead people then saving countless future lives, demon in a suit and he's making his way to be our president, "ight imma head out"

  18. I love watching people like this. They jump on a train of controversy so their name can be in the media. They don't really mean it they just trying to get 30sec of fame from it

  19. Beta O'Rourke. I dont have to argue your point (the 2nd amendment does it for me) so I'm just gonna say; get fucked. Trump 2020

  20. No it's NOT gonna happen. How can the Government have a gun "buy back" when the Government didn't sell them to you in the first place???

  21. I never EVER considered buying an AR til this steaming pile said that. I'm not a fudd, I just didn't. But NOW? Maybe I'll buy TWO!

  22. That woman owns a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado called Shooters Grill. Please visit her Facebook page and show her some love. All the waitresses who chose to, open carry. I think that even the kitchen staff is packing heat.

  23. Wooow! What an outspoken and courageous woman. I admire that kind of initiative. I wish we had more people like her. And she's right, Beto is exploiting these poor victim's for his own political gain. I stand behind the 2nd Amendment. Evil people don't abide by the law and every chosen victim in mass shootings are usually unarmed and defenseless. They should ban psychotic people from this country, not our guns.

  24. The problem is not the NRA the problem is the American people, they will never go for that. Beto just shot himself in the foot with an AK-47

  25. NICE SLANTED LEFTY REPORTING YOU FCUKN BLONDE TUB OF GOO… CALLING HIM BETO
    TELLING HIS SOB LITTLE BITCH STORY B4 YOU SLANTED YOUR RECORDING MORE YOU AMERICA, & GUN HATING BITCH!

  26. Beto You Fucken TRAITOR !!! You won't get guns bitch just bullets you pussy!! What part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!!" don't you get??? Youy have more LAW abiding CITIZENS that criminals with ILLEGAL guns!!!

  27. this makes me want to buy my first AR-15 and i don't even like that rifle. also i will buy my first AK-47 and then some handguns and definitely a shotty. i love texas! beto ain't texan.

  28. Who is he to say what people need to protect themselves? He's a millionaire who has private security. What a joke this dude is.

  29. Coming from a man who cannot own a firearm due to his felony records he has more than one !!! Robert assault and multiple Dwi counts this party must be wiped out in the polls this year or America will flounder they are nothing but criminals who have all broken the oath of office! The time is now to dissolve this criminal party! The 2A is not about hunting it's about ancitizen protecting them self from a tyrannical government and that IS the democrat party to the letter! Wake up America your rights are under full blown attack!

  30. I saw this & that woman said said so much more. I hate the news but I can’t stand ROBERT! You can try to take our guns but we won’t give em up buddy boy

  31. It’s sport shooting, passions and shooting with my family there’s quite a few more things than hunting but there non “weapons of war!?!?” My AR (ArmaLite rifle) shoots the same rate as my ruger .9mm

  32. This is the guy that wrote poems about killing children and “black kids is better” he said. It’s on google check this dicks stuff out. He’s disgusting!!

  33. I wish Beto would answer this if a drunk driver runs someone over why should i lose my license the same thing applies to guns why should i lose mine for someone eles's irresponsibility

  34. He expects everyone to follow the law and hand over their guns. If everyone followed the law people would not need the guns for protection.

  35. No I wouldn’t send police into people’s homes to take their guns. I would expect my fellow Americans to fallow the law, but if they don’t then yes I would.

  36. How do you "BUY BACK" something you never sold, those words are just Liberal speak for gun confiscation. Please talk about how to get weapons from CRIMINALS not law abiding citizens. If they 300 + Million law abiding guns owners were the problem, you'd know it, trying to take guns from all these people leads you down a treacherous slope.

  37. Fill your hands and COME AND TAKE IT you S.O.B.. I will defend myself, my family and my liberties no matter how many idiots and ivory tower dilataunts say otherwise. I will FIGHT.

  38. Lol my rifle doesn’t say ar15 on it anywhere. It is a stamped m4 with only single fire So iguess I won’t have to worry about the buyback. Lol

  39. I hat that it may come to this, but wait til the first timenan American civilian gets shot in his own home by police or military trying to sieze weapons.

    That will put this whole country on notice and everyone will finally wake up to the leftists garbage…until then heads in the sand is all we see.

  40. BTW I carry everywhere even places where I am not welcome to carry .
    Other then airplanes, court houses or public schools.

    Have several to choose from and most of the time it's a pocket .380 you would never know about.

    All guns can be a weapon of war , however a true military type firearm ie full auto can not be bought by the avg person , unless you pay a special tax and jump through several hoops they are also hideously expensive as in $20k Plus in most cases.

  41. And that isn’t Evan’s stance. He was on Fox today talking about how Liberal media ran from him when they discovered he doesn’t support this nonsense.

  42. It's about power, it's a culture war. Guns are just tools, and if the government is the only one with guns we are no longer free. The second amendment is to resist the government if need be. These shooting are a mental health issue. Taking guns away from law abiding people is what Hitler did in the 1930's. A defenseless people are slaves. This is a country of the people by the people for the people! Governance is different than rule. Our government is not meant to rule over us. Liberals are evil and lie in order to have total rule. We are in world war 3 here but it's a culture war. If we loose we'll be slaves. Guns are not the issue, it's power and control. Everything the evil lefties do if for power. Illegal immigration get's them votes, in california they give them drivers licenses just for this reason. California is a good example of what happens when evil lefties take over. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWt8dFCJINk

  43. I see a civil war starting. It will only take one. One person to get a gun confiscated and it will be on. Remember that old slogan “the shot heard around the world”?

  44. There is so many auto guns that a shooter will still be able to get their hands on one and then we will be completely defenseless..
