During last Thursday’s presidential debate, former Texas congressman Robert “Beto” O’Rourke said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47, and we’re not going to allow it to be used against your fellow Americans anymore.”
Three days later, O’Rourke appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” where host Chuck Todd pointed out that there was “a lot of hand-wringing” about the presidential contender’s full-throated call on national TV for confiscating such rifles.
But O’Rouke doubled down saying, “We’re going to take your guns and we’re starting with little Tommy’s squirt gun. No longer will Tommy be able to use this against his fellow siblings.”
A few people have cheered the move as heroic but spokespeople from the Water and Squirt Gun Association of America dismissed the plan.
“It’s erroneous to think that a president has the power to take your squirt guns, no matter who you spray with the full force of a fire hose. What’s next getting rid of gardening hoses?”
