Presidential candidate embraces far left anti-gun extremist
Former Vice President and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden embraced anti-gun extremist Robert Francis O’Rourke revealing the failed presidential candidate would lead his anti-Second Amendment efforts.
“I wanna make something clear, I’m going to guarantee you this is not the last you’ve seen of [O’Rourke],” Biden said.
“You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me,” he stated.
“You’re going to be the one who leads this effort.”
“I’m counting on you. I’m counting on you,” Biden continued.
“We need you badly; the state needs you, the country needs you. You’re the best.”
In September, before O’Rourke bowed out of the presidential race, he promised to ban every semi-automatic rifle in America.
O’Rourke rejected the idea that the gun confiscation would involve Americans voluntarily handing over their legally purchased firearms.
“It’s not voluntary. It’s mandatory,” O’Rourke said at the time.
In November, Biden praised O’Rourke, saying his “passion” for gun confiscation was “inspiring.”
At the time, Biden was responding to news that former Texas Democrat dropped out of the presidential race.
In the wake of tragedy in his hometown, @BetoORourke responded with compassion and leadership, looking into the eyes of people who just lost loved ones and pledging his total resolve. His passion for solving our gun crisis has been inspiring to anyone who has seen him.

Beto O’Rourke championed eliminating your #2A rights, confiscating your guns, & punishing law-abiding Americans
Joe Biden just promised to put Beto in charge of “the gun problem” to “lead this effort”
Joe wants to take away Americans’ guns just as badly as Beto!

The former VP pointed to O’Rourke’s anti-Second Amendment pledge to push for gun control by confiscating automatic rifles from law-abiding American citizens.
Beto’s gun control efforts were characterized by his vows to force people to hand over their AR-15 and AK-47 rifles to his government.
During a Democrat Debate on September 12, 2019, Beto stated, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”
But O’Rourke’s confiscation plans did not translate into support in the polls, and he dropped out of the race on Friday, November 1.
Biden tweeted at the time:
Beto’s “passion for solving our gun crisis has been inspiring to anyone who has seen him.”
