CNN fails to bleep Beto’s f bomb when on a gun rant.

Oh he tweeted he wants to buy back every assault rifle.
I don't own an assault rifle.
Yes me too. Still can’t decide on that first gun.

Robert's history of criminal behavior means that I, personally, will not be selling any firearms to him. If he can pass a background check, then that serves as additional evidence that they are ineffective.

Who cares? Beto polls at 2% and will be out of the rase soon. This campaign, in my view, has probably killed his chance for politics in Texas.

Beto: We Will Absolutely Establish A National Gun Registry
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/bethbauma ... y-n2552752
“This is a country that has produced the leadership that will ensure that we not only have universal background checks and red flag laws and end the sale of those weapons of war, but that we go the necessary steps further as politically difficult as they may be," O'Rourke explained. "A gun registry in this country, licensing for every American who owns a firearm and every single one of those AR15s and AK47s will be bought back so they’re not on our streets, not in our homes, do not take the lives of our fellow Americans."
It doesn’t matter which Dim is elected, this is their universal agenda.

Inclusive urbanism comes to presidential race.

I didn’t even know that was a thing.

Poor people should be able to live in rich neighborhoods.

Ok, but can they afford the property taxes?

Beto doesn’t see police coming door to door as part of his gun buyback plan.

“I see American’s complying with the law”

Yes, I agree, if I owned a gun, I would certainly comply.

I know what you mean. I don't own a gun. I do have a personal protection assistive device but that's not a gun.
It's fine if you disagree. I can't force you to be correct.

I got mine. He can’t afford them. Cops don’t want to go door to door. Bad juju.

Well, they won't be all that high once the poor people moving there drive down the property values...

We already have a national firearms registry. I have two Form 1 applications in progress to add to the registry, hoping to beat Trump's next 3D chess move.

P.S. FIFY
I believe the basic political division in this country is not between liberals and conservatives but between those who believe that they should have a say in the personal lives of strangers and those who do not.
