Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, must be hopping mad that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is calling for the forced, mandatory confiscation of all AR-15 and AR-15-style rifles.
Just think of the years of care and effort that gun control activists such as Coons have put into trying to convince voters that no one is coming for their guns. All that careful wording and rhetorical finesse, just poof! Up in smoke, because a former Texas congressman has aspirations for the presidency.
It's not easy watching all your hard work get destroyed by someone else's publicity stunt.
