Beto O’Rourke made it clear during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in Houston: He’s not just going for woke. He’s going for broke. And he may have irrevocably damaged his campaign in the process after the answer he gave on gun control.
ABC News debate moderator David Muir asked O’Rourke to confirm he was planning on confiscating guns as president during a segment on mass shootings and gun control. The former El Paso Congressman answered “**** yes!”:

You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation.

When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. ****, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

O’ROURKE: And, I want to say this — I’m listening to the people of this country, the day after...
