So I have to ask, did Beto O'Rourke shoot himself in the foot?
Or did he lie to the people he wanted to vote for him?
This discussion about guns just boggles the mind that people don't get the Math of the problem. There are more than 9 million gun owners in this country. The FBI and the ATF have better things to do than to take guns away from people who didn't do anything wrong.
I'm pretty sure only an idiot would entertain the idea that they can take away people's guns. The Supreme Court ruled against Chicago's gun ban. They would have to change or remove an Amendment to the Constitution.
I don't even own a gun and I get this.
On May 19, 1995, O'Rourke and his friends jumped over a fence at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) physical plant, and were arrested by the UTEP police for burglary. He was held in jail overnight and posted bail the following day. He was initially charged with burglary, but prosecutors dropped the case against O'Rourke and his friends in February 1996 when UTEP declined to pursue the charges.
O'Rourke was arrested for driving while intoxicated on September 27, 1998, at 3:00 a.m. on Interstate 10 in Anthony, Texas. The charges were dismissed in October 1999 after he completed a court-recommended DWI program. In response to criticism from a political opponent in 2005, O'Rourke said, "I've been open about it since the very beginning. I have owned up to it and I have taken responsibility for it." He apologized and said he was "grateful for the second chance".
There are more than 9 million legitimate gun owners in this country
Can you please quote where Beto said that??

I can’t think of one issue where the gop actually debates the policy proposed and not some silly slippery slope arguments with ZERO popular support.

the constitution was made a long time ago and it's not absurd to edit or change it in some ways
