Beto is certainly not gun-friendly. He adopts the usual anti-gun line that the AR15 is an "assault rifle" which we know it is not. He nuances his position by saying we can keep our AR15s if we already have one BUT he does not believe we should be able to buy any FUTURE AR15s. So, if I want to buy one in a couple of years he would be opposed to that. Ted Cruz is by no means perfect but he certainly not gonna object should I decide to buy another AR down the road.

To "get a load of Beto" just check out this radio interview:

So he claims that there were so many machine gun killings in the 1930's that our rights had to be reduced to lower the violence, then says the ones still owned are family heirlooms and are not on the streets gunning people down. Hmmm, are machine guns good or bad cause if they are bad, they should be out on the streets turning them red. Those killings were highly sensationalized by the media in the day much the same way a mass killing with an AR type rifle is today.

He's flat out says our rights were reduced and is ok with that. I wonder what other rights he is ok with reducing or doing away with?

Is this part of the same group of polls that told us Trump would lose 2 years ago?

Slightly off topic but Ted Cruz will be in Wichita Falls on Oct. 3, 2018 and apparently Donald Trump Jr will be with him and I plan on going. It will be in a city owned property and I am wondering if concealed carry will be allowed. Secret service might prohibit?
I would suspect that even with it being government property, that Secret Service will prohibit carry. Remember, they prohibited carry in the arena section of the convention center when POTUS addressed the membership.
While at the NRA convention, I rounded a corner looking at one of the bicycles that had really big tires and electric motors. Not watching where I was going just looking at the bike. I nearly plowed into a Secret Service officer or body guard, while they were protecting Donald Trump Jr. I just decided to go a different way but they didn't stop me, or show any inclination that they even saw me, or said a word to me or my buddy, and I know they had to see both of us. Why is that important? Because we both were open carrying. I also had an AR pistol in my backpack just because.

Leaving the convention, there was a crowd in front of us. I asked my buddy wonder what was going on. It was Lou Ferrigno (aka The Incredible Hulk) and Ted Cruz taking a picture together. I was 5 ft from both of them. Again, nothing happened. I wish I would have gotten a picture with any of them but I'm not one to but into their lives.

I'm not sure if this will be any different but that was my experience with Trump Jr. and the secret service.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Not that it matters to the people that will vote for him cause they will no matter what but ole "Beto" is an Irish American using a nickname to sound Hispanic for votes. He didn't win the border districts in the primary so maybe his target voters are already on to him.

I looked at the numbers during the primary and am not worried one bit about him beating Cruz. Ted Cruz had more votes x3 than all of the democrats, I mean socialist, put together. I know that voter turn out for primaries is weak but the communist party, I mean democrats, will have to really step it up. I do not see them legitimately turning out that many people to beat Cruz.

As a block, I'm done with the rino party. I will vote for Cruz only because I know most in his party do not like him and that's probably a good thing. I'm not happy about his speech during the convention last year but he seems to not be opposing Trump like the others in his party.
