Gifford’s Courage, the gun control advocacy group led by Gabby Giffords, has a new video out featuring eight Democratic presidential candidates saying that guns are bad, m’kay, and they need to be kept out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them.
Funny … the video kicks off with Beto O’Rourke, who doesn’t mention a word about his mandatory “buyback” of AR-15s, AK-47s, and perhaps other weapons to be added in the future. But at least he also doesn’t assure us that all Americans certain will just turn over their firearms to the government when they come to the door.
Seriously: If they were going to go to the trouble of making a gun-control video, could they at least have agreed to put forward some “common sense” policies?
NEW—Watch the third video in our #GunSafetyPresident series. These candidates agree: it’s time for universal background checks:@AmyKlobuchar@BernieSanders@BetoORourke@CoryBooker@EWarren@JoeBiden@KamalaHarris@PeteButtigieg

So first it’s common sense gun laws but at the same time these candidates are saying they want to take our guns which one is it?

I like to use this as a list of people not to vote for

All gun-grabbing hacks… just what exactly is a "universal background check"?
— Jeff Hane (@HaneJeff) September 23, 2019
Your plan for Universal Background Checks includes national gun registration for those gun checked, yes? Can you explain that in greater detail?

These socialists candidates agree? That should be warning enough to see this will end badly for Americans. Background checks is basically a registry so they’ll know exactly who has a gun. No thanks commies.

Please tell us why California and Illinois’ UBC laws haven’t resulted in a lower gun murder rate compared to states that don’t have that ineffective law?

How about you start confiscating illegal guns in Chicago!! Let’s see you go into the city and demand guns from gang members….?

This collection of clowns couldn't pour water out of a boot, with the directions written on the heel, and an instructor giving directions! ????????

I think since we're infinitely more likely to be shot in places with overwhelmingly democrat voter bases than anywhere else, we should ban democrats. That would solve so many more problems than just this one.

Tell us which past mass shootings would have been stopped by this bill?

The one thing in common among all those candidates: None will be POTUS

Let’s be honest. I have a better chance of winning in 2020 than those jokes.

People in the comments seem to agree overwhelmingly that Beto O’Rourke is the #gunsafetypresident, and he’s currently at 2 percent in the latest CNN/Des Moines Register poll, so that’s not working out for him any better than it did for Eric Swalwell.
Sen. Chuck Schumer says he doesn’t know any Democrats who back Beto O’Rourke’s gun confiscation scheme https://t.co/ssjdoUg2JK
