(Breitbart) – A handful of Texas supporters of President Donald Trump and the Second Amendment welcomed Beto O’Rourke at a rally in Texas with ‘Come and Take it’ flags.
Video footage of the event from Fox 4 showed one Trump supporter with a rifle slung over his back holding a, “Hell no you will not take my AR-15” sign. Other supporters held a Trump sign, a Texas flag with an AR-15 on it and a classic Texas white “Come and Take it” flag.
“We are going to buy back every single one of those weapons,” O’Rourke said at the rally as supporters cheered, “Get them off the streets.”
After the rally, O’Rourke defended his new stance on guns saying that if Democrats were defensive, they would end up with nothing on gun control.
“I think that we have to make sure we are bold, have the courage of our convictions and reflect the urgency of this issue,” he said and added, “There’s really no legitimate need for an AK-47 or an AR-15.”
After the Plano, Texas rally Beto did this quick press conference. The stakes are sky high and you can feel it exponentially more every time he speaks in the wake of El Paso. Half measures ain’t gonna cut it! #Beto2020Envoys For BetoBeto O'Rourke

Flashback: Boom: Arizona Gun Store Sells Out Of AR-15’s After Offering ‘Beto Special’
An Arizona gun store has sold out of AR-15 style rifles after offering a special sale to the public in response to Beto O’Rourke’s Orwellian gun confiscation “buyback” proposal.
From the looks of it, many patriotic Americans felt inclined to purchase new semiautomatic rifles during Alpha Dog Firearms’ sale. The store sold out of its inventory within 24 hours of announcing the sale, which listed AR-15’s at prices far below normal market price. Some AR platforms were sold for $350.00. The special began Friday.
Alpha Dog is continuing to list special sales on their website under the ‘Beto Specials’ tab, and will restock with a new batch of rifles shortly. AK-47 rifles are also being sold at discount prices.
The gun-grabbing Texas Democrat will now have to confiscate every rifle sold in his name in order to enact his authoritarian program of mandatory rifle ‘buybacks.’ O’Rourke has no one to himself to blame, and stands poised to make himself the best de facto gun salesman for the firearm industry since Barack Obama himself.
Although he’s stirred up a strong reaction from gun owners and patriots in response to his nakedly Orwellian ‘buyback’ proposal, O’Rourke’s planned gun confiscation is little more than a last-ditch attempt to attract attention to a floundering campaign.
The handsomely-funded neoliberal corporate Democrat has struggled in the polls for months, set back by accusations of lacking concrete policy proposals in a race where some Democrats have made extensive plans to combat the economic effects of automation and set forth detailed healthcare policy proposals.
Beto will probably drop out within the next few weeks or months(unless he’s inclined to wage a John Kasich-style delusional, endless campaign). However, many American gun owners will have an affordable AR-15 rifle to remember his campaign with.
