Robert Francis O’Rourke has little hope of winning the Democrat nomination next year but he has emerged as the unhinged left’s top voice for gun confiscation.
The loopy Texan who goes by the phony Latino nickname Beto has been on a roll ever since the miraculous good fortune of having a mass casualty shooting event take place at a Walmart in his congressional district.
Ever since the tragic slaughter of 22 shoppers at the hands of a deranged lunatic, Beto has become a favorite of the Sunday morning and cable news shows as he pushes the dream of a gun “buyback” with those who don’t comply facing imprisonment.
Even as Senate Democrats have become skittish and critical over O’Rourke’s mission which is undermining any chance for new restrictions on the Second Amendment, Beto has taken his freak show on the road.
But what he got during a stop in Colorado was more than the goofy man-child bargained for when at a town hall, a local woman unloaded on the varmint.
During the event in the Denver suburb of Aurora, a mother of four had two words of defiance for his big idea to take guns away from law-abiding Americans.
Caught off guard and faced with an angry mob that would pounce on her with little provocation, Beto let her speak.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Gun owner tells Beto O’Rourke ‘hell no, you’re not’ taking my guns”:
A gun owner at a Beto O’Rourke rally was heckled by the crowd after she told the presidential candidate that he was not going to take her guns.
“I’m here to say, hell no you’re not,” Lauren Boebert told O’Rourke about his proposal to seize AR-15 guns from Americans during a town hall in Aurora, Colorado.Loading...
“I have four children, I am 5-foot-0, 100 pounds, I cannot really defend myself with a fist,” she said. “I want to know how you’re going to legislate that because a criminal breaks the law, so all you’re going to do is restrict law-abiding citizens, like myself.”
It was an awkward moment for Beto who like other Democrats are used to speaking in front of stacked audiences reading prepared questions and he was clearly stunned.
As for Boebert – who owns a restaurant named Shooters Grill – she has a message for President Trump.
Via The Daily Caller, “Woman Who Confronted Beto O’Rourke Speaks Out, And She’s Got A Message For President Trump”:
In addition to discussing what led her to confront the presidential candidate, Boebert also had a few more words for O’Rourke along with a message for President Donald Trump.
Our current administration absolutely needs to take a stand now, today, and say we will honor the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. We support our president. I love my president, and I implore him, please protect our Second Amendment. We elected you to do just that. We don’t want anything inched away because every little thing that’s on chopping block eventually will lead to no ownership of firearms in America.
It’s about time that a patriotic American took a stand against a gun-grabbing loon like Beto and called out the left’s cynical and ghoulish exploitation of the victims of mass shootings to disarm citizens in order to implement socialism.
May there be many more like Lauren Boebert who will start to speak out.
