Trump Calls “Dummy Beto” Out For Making It Harder To Make A Deal On Gun Safety

Trump should have actually thanked Beto for exposing what the Democratic gun grabber agenda actually is

(The Hill) President Trump is blaming Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke for making it “much harder” for him to reach a bipartisan deal with Democrats on gun control legislation in the wake of a string of mass shootings.

Trump tweeted early Wednesday that the former Texas congressman, whom he labeled “dummy Beto,” had “convinced many” that Democrats want to take people’s guns away. The tweet came after O’Rourke, whose home state witnessed recent shootings in El Paso and Odessa, proposed a mandatory buyback for assault weapons.

“Dummy Beto made it much harder to make a deal. Convinced many that Dems just want to take your guns away,” Trump tweeted Wednesday, adding, however, “Will continue forward!”

They do want to take guns away from law abiding citizens. Remember, the initial talking point was that they would reinstate the 1994 assault weapons ban, which did not take guns away, just stop new sales. Now, here’s Beto saying he will take them away from citizens who now own them, a position several other contenders have alluded to, and one which the hardcore liberal base wants implemented. Heck, go back to the late 1990’s and you had Trump backing the assault weapons ban. Even if he still believes in it, he’s not going to say it and he knows it’s it bad idea to try and take them.

Trump has been engaging with lawmakers on potential gun legislation in the wake of the shootings, but hopes have dimmed on the prospect of a bipartisan deal that would expand background checks.

In the wake of August shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, Trump signaled support for expanding background checks and expressed optimism that Republicans would get on board.

But since, he has appeared to waffle on his stance, casting gun violence as primarily a health issue and warning of the “slippery slope” – a popular talking point of the National Rifle Association – of enacting gun control measures. He has also said that the United States already has strong background checks, and that he wants to focus on filling the gaps.

Trump told reporters at the White House last Thursday that he thought he would support strengthening background checks, but quickly sought to shift the burden to Democrats on any agreements, saying he wouldn’t agree to anything if it were “a ploy to take your guns away.”

They do. They say it. They write it. They allude to it. When you hear them talking about the British and Australian solutions, well, that was about banning most weapons. When they are cheering on the bannings in New Zealand, you know what they want. When they make a gaffe and, instead of saying they want to ban “assault weapons” they say they want to ban all semi-automatic weapons, they mean it. Nor do they ever offer legislation that hammers those who illegally use/possess firearms, and want to go easier on criminals.

We know what they want.

    The discussions, articles will all be about ultimately de-stigmatizing not only Homosexuality, but all forms of formerly “taboo” sex such as incest, pedophilia, etc.

    Nope, I don’t see any pattern here. None at all. (/sarcasm off)

      Not “everyone”. Police and people with political connections will still have plenty of guns. You can’t have a police state without armed police.
