Beto O'Rourke is a complete moron
I hate Beto O'Rourke. He's so laughably lame and I was thrilled when he dropped out of the race. Beto is like the typical "nice guy" who just agrees with women in hopes of getting laid. Seriously it always struck me as ironic that a guy named Beto also happens to be such a beta. Maybe it's in his genes. Joking, but he's definitely the type of guy to wear jeans from K-Mart and order a Sangria.
He'd probably tell you his hobbies include collecting records, smoking weed, and "deep thinking", when in reality his favorite thing to do is drive drunk.
Alright, I've had my fun at this clown's expense, why am I dragging him like this?
Because despite dropping out of the race, Beto continues to share in unwanted opinion, and recently shared quite a hot take on the issue of gun control after a shooting took place in Beto's home state of Texas on Sunday, December 29th. According to the Dallas Morning News,
A gunman killed two people during a Sunday morning service at a church in White Settlement before a member of the congregation fatally shot him, authorities say.
Police in White Settlement, about eight miles west of Fort Worth, were called before 11 a.m. to the West Freeway Church of Christ at 1900 South Las Vegas Trail after one member, who is part of the church’s security team, opened fire on the gunman.
The brave church-goer who took out the shooter is named Jack Wilson and many proponents of the 2nd amendment were quick to promote the story as a strong argument for gun rights. This is true. Texas has some of the most lenient gun control laws, allowing gun owners to carry their weapons at a place of worship. Two people lost their lives, but had it not been for a good guy with a gun, many more would have been murdered.
But Beto O'Rourke didn't think twice before hopping on a gun control tangent.
Beto took to twitter to scream about gun laws failing Texas as well as the entire country.
Regardless of how many laws you put in place, criminals will find a way to get a hold of a weapon, and even more so, owning a firearm is a constitutional right that was established for a reason. I do believe there's an argument to be made over the question of how the shooter with a record was able to attain the weapon. But so far, details have yet to emerge. Regardless of how he attained the weapon, it's naive to rely on the supposed good nature of individuals and leave yourself defenseless. It's actually pathetic that someone like Beto could look at this thwarted massacre and continue to blame guns. This is certainly a nuanced issue, but it's so obvious he's just peddling the common anti-gun gibberish instead of waiting for the details, and taking into account that because of Jack Wilson, the good guy with a gun, the horrors could've been far worse.
