The former vice president invited his former Democratic primaries rival and gun confiscator, Beto O’Rourke, to join him in addressing the “gun problem.” O’Rourke endorsed Joe Biden hours before the Super Tuesday when 14 states decide on the Democratic presidential primaries. Biden received two more endorsements from Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg.
Biden claimed that the United States desperately needed O’Rourke. The former vice president said that O’Rourke’s role in his administration was not yet over. Biden promised his supporters that they would witness O’Rourke’s presence in American politics more frequently after the endorsement.
“I’m going to guarantee this is not the last you’re seeing of this guy,” Biden said.
“You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re going to be the one who leads this effort. I’m counting on you. I’m counting on you. We need you badly, the state needs you, the country needs you. You’re the best. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
The former Texas’ 16th district representative dropped out of the race last year after his persistent campaign on firearm confiscation failed to propel him to popularity with Democratic voters. Democrats reprimanded him for taking a radical approach to gun control, thus alienating the Democratic party from moderate Second Amendment supporters. Consequently, the party distanced itself from his gun confiscation remarks.
President Trump also blamed “Dummy O’Rourke” for sabotaging the bipartisan gun control negotiations that were taking place. The discussion would have led to the passing of unconstitutional laws that infringe on the Second Amendment rights due to Trump’s compromise on the citizens’ rights to defend themselves.
Biden did not clarify what role O’Rourke will play in his presidential campaign if he survives the race. The former vice president has tried to upscale his rhetoric on gun control, hoping to defeat fellow candidates on gun control to keep his hopes up.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
