Sen. Manchin: O’Rourke’s ‘Not Taking My Guns Away From Me’

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., on Wednesday said ex-Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, will not confiscate his guns.

O’Rourke, during the recent Democratic debate said, “hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15” during a discussion on stricter gun laws.

“I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield,” he said when he was asked if he would implement mandatory buybacks for assault-style weapon.

“So many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell yes, we’re going to take away your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.”

Manchin, of West Virginia, of the pledge, told The Wall Street Journal:

“Beto’s one human being. He gave his own opinion, OK? I think it was very harmful to make it look like all the Democrats. I can tell you one thing: Beto O’Rourke’s not taking my guns away from me. You tell Beto that OK?”

Manchin said it was “very harmful” to the Democratic Party for O’Rourke to make it look as though Democrats wanted to seize firearms purchased lawfully.

  1. O’Rouke is an idiot! If he had actually read the second amendment, he might have noticed that it said: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” An AR-15s, AK-47s, M1 carbines and so forth are “ARMS” suitable for a “MILITIA”. The “people” of the United States, male and female, have a “RIGHT” to posses AR-15s, AK-47s, M1s and so forth, because they are “ARMS”, and the people of the USA have a God given RIGHT to protect themselves from ANY threat, regardless of were it comes from. A .30-30 Winchester rifle is not a “ARM”. It is a “tool” used in hunting. YOU DO NOT HAVE A “RIGHT” to own a tool!
