Could Beto’s Anti-Gun Stance Ruin His Campaign For TX Governor?

Former Democratic Presidential contender Beto O’Rourke recently announced he was running for Governor of Texas, promising to unite the state.

“Together, we can push past the small and divisive politics that we see in Texas today — and get back to the big, bold vision that used to define Texas. A Texas big enough for all of us,” said O’Rourke early this week.

However, O’Rourke’s announcement was soon overshadowed by his stance on guns. He doubled down on a mandatory buyback of certain guns like the AR-15.

“I think most Texans can agree — maybe all Texans can agree — that we should not see our friends, our family members, our neighbors, shot up with weapons that were originally designed for use on a battlefield,” O’Rourke told the Texas Tribune.

The comments quickly drew pushback for the candidate.

“Beto O’Rourke running for Governor of Texas after openly declaring his hatred for guns is one of the silliest thing I’ve heard since… ever,” said Rep. Lauren Boebert.

O’Rourke infamously said in a Democratic debate years ago, “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”

Others speculate it could hurt other Democrats in the state.

Texas has some of the country’s more liberal gun laws which, historically, the electorate has supported.

“I bet the Texas Dems running in swing districts LOVE hearing this,” wrote Republican commentator Matt Whitlock sarcastically on Twitter.

O’Rourke’s opponent meanwhile, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, noted Beto’s stance in a Twitter response to O’Rourke’s announcement.

From Abbott:

“Beto wants to:
– defund the police
– kill good paying oil & gas jobs
– allow chaotic open border policies
– support the failing Biden agenda
– impose socialism
– take your guns.

Bring it.”
