Colorado Congressman Ken Buck trolled former Vice President Joe “Hands On” Biden and Beto O’Rourke regarding their claims that they were coming for people’s Ar-15s as he chided them in a video to swing by his office in DC and come get the one hanging on his wall.
Guns In The News reported on Biden’s comments regarding getting failed presidential candidate O’Rourke to help him in dealing with the “gun problem.”
Presidential contender Joe Biden’s fortunes have recently shifted, with game-changing wins in several important Democrat primary contests. He has succeeded in part by positioning himself as the Democrats’ “safe” choice to square off against President Trump, at least in comparison to self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders.
But make no mistake, Biden offers no safety to gun owners of any party, as shown by his recent promise that avowed firearm confiscation advocate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke would lead the Biden administration’s effort against the “gun problem.”
On the Monday before Super Tuesday’s multiple state primaries, O’Rourke endorsed Biden for president at a rally in Dallas. Biden reciprocated by offering his former rival in the Democrat primary a job.
“I want to make something clear,” Biden said to the cheering crowd of Democrat voters. “I’m going to guarantee you this is not the last you’ll see of this guy.” He continued by addressing O’Rourke: “YOU’RE going to take care of the gun problem with me. YOU’RE going to be the one who leads this effort. I’m counting on ya.”
Just days after Biden’s comments, Buck tweeted out a video and stated, “I have a message for Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke,” Buck said. “If you want to take everyone’s AR-15s in America, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one.”
I have just one message for Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke, if you want to take everyone’s AR-15s, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one?

“Come and take it,” he said as he pulled it off the wall.
“This guy makes the case for both an assault weapons ban and a mandatory buyback program better than I ever could,” O’Rourke tweeted in response. “These are weapons of war that have no place in our communities, in our politics or in our public discourse.”
Buck is the chairman of the Colorado Republican Party and is seeking his fourth term in office.
GITN went on to remind everyone about just how unconstitutional O’Rourke actually is when it comes to the Second Amendment.
The little-known candidate from Texas had tried to distinguish himself from his primary competition and gain some free media exposure by adopting the most extreme anti-gun platform in the field. He had planned not just to ban America’s most popular defensive rifle but to ensure they were stripped from owners who had obtained them lawfully. O’Rourke’s infamous boast, “Hell, yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15”, even adorned t-shirts his campaign was selling, no doubt to offset his lack of actual contributors.
O’Rourke was also the only candidate to endorse the unhinged gun control “Peace Plan” put forth by David Hogg and his cohorts at March for Our Lives. A scheme that even the anti-gun mass media called “sweeping,” “ambitious,” and “far-reaching”, the Peace Plan is actually a roadmap to ending gun ownership as America currently knows it.
The “plan’s” centerpiece, of course, is a massive ban on semi-automatic firearms, backed by a forced surrender program. But it additionally calls for annual licensing of gun owners (including in-person interviews and mandatory training), government-funded propaganda to scare people out of owing [sic] guns, a ban on online sales of ammunition and gun parts, a national firearms registry, and ruinous civil liability for the gun industry.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure no one really wants Ukraine Joe anywhere near public office ever again… or their daughters… or wives… or any female in their family.
