Cruz Criticizes PolitiFact for Claiming O’Rourke Doesn’t Plan to ‘Take Our Guns’

Cruz Criticizes PolitiFact for Claiming O’Rourke Doesn’t Plan to ‘Take Our Guns’Texas senator Ted Cruz took aim at fact-checking website PolitiFact on Friday, criticizing the site for having previously claimed that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke does not plan to "take our guns" after O'Rourke explicitly suggested otherwise at Thursday night's Democratic debate."When we see that being used against children . . . hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," O'Rourke said from the debate stage when asked if he was proposing that the government confiscate legally owned assault-style weapons. "We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore."> Hell yeah, we're going to take your AR-15. If it's a weapon that was designed to kill people on the battlefield, we're going to buy it back. pic.twitter.com/cCEWkG6y0X> > — Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) September 13, 2019 "Just a reminder, when I said it, PolitiFact (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC) rated 'Beto wants to take our guns' as FALSE," Cruz wrote in a tweet. "Maybe they should buy one of his new t-shirts," he added, along with a picture of a shirt being sold by the O'Rourke campaign which reads, "Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15."> Just a reminder, when I said it, PolitiFact (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC) rated “Beto wants to take our guns” as FALSE.

Beto O’Rourke Vows to Pursue Gun Confiscation: ‘Hell Yes, We’re Going to Take Your AR-15’

Beto O’Rourke Vows to Pursue Gun Confiscation: ‘Hell Yes, We’re Going to Take Your AR-15’Beto O'Rourke vowed to confiscate legally owned rifles during the third Democratic primary debate on Thursday evening.Citing the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the former Democratic congressman said the federal government must seize certain semi-automatic rifles to prevent further tragedy.“The high-impact, high velocity round, when it hits your body shreds everything insider your body because it was designed to do that, so that you would bleed to death on the battlefield,” O’Rourke said to raucous applause.“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,” he added. “Hell, 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 went on to argue that his gun confiscation plan enjoys the support of the majority of voters, including those who reside in traditionally red states.“Folks who said, I would give that up, cut it to pieces, I don’t need this weapon to hunt, to defend myself. It is a weapon of war, so, let’s do the right thing, but let’s bring everyone in America into the conversation,” he said.Hours before the debate, O'Rourke urged major financial institutions not to finance gun transactions.“However inadvertent or deliberate, credit card companies and banks profit off of those who terrorize our communities,” O’Rourke said in an email to voters on Thursday. “And we know that in this moment, no one can sit on the sidelines. Everyone has a responsibility to do their part.”O'Rourke released an ambitious gun control plan last month that would create a national gun registry, and ban assault-style rifles, bump-stocks, silencers, and magazines that hold more than ten rounds.

Walmart Moves on Guns. Politicians, Take Note.

Walmart Moves on Guns. Politicians, Take Note.(Bloomberg Opinion) — Walmart Inc., the biggest retailer in the U.S. and a leading seller of firearms and ammunition, announced this week that it would stop selling bullets for handguns and military-style rifles, stop selling handguns in Alaska (the last remaining state where it makes such sales), and “respectfully” ask its customers to stop openly carrying guns in its stores.The move is welcome in its own right — but it’s especially encouraging as a sign that public opinion is swinging ever more strongly in support of effective gun-control policies. CVS, Kroger, Walgreens and other retailers have also adjusted their policies. If Walmart and others see the case for changing their minds, politicians ought to pay attention.QuicktakeGuns in AmericaWalmart took the opportunity to address politicians directly, saying: “We encourage our nation’s leaders to move forward and strengthen background checks and to remove weapons from those who have been determined to pose an imminent danger.”The company has acted on guns before. It took assault weapons off its shelves in 2015, for instance. But this latest action is still striking. The recent attack in one of its stores in El Paso, Texas — leaving 22 dead, and followed within hours by another atrocity in Dayton, Ohio — was seen to demand a response. “The status quo is unacceptable,” said Doug McMillon, the company’s CEO. He’s right.The announcement will help to strengthen the cultural change that seems to be happening. But to lessen the proliferation of firearms or the danger of guns getting into dangerous hands, political action is needed as well. The two go hand in hand, which is why Walmart’s initiative matters.“They have their finger on the pulse of what Americans want, and the Senate should take note,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. (Michael Bloomberg, owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News, founded and helps fund Everytown, a nonprofit that advocates for universal background checks and other gun-violence prevention measures.)Momentum seems to be building toward meaningful gun-control regulation. Walmart’s chief executive and the company’s courageous board deserve credit for recognizing this, and for adding their weight to the cause.\–Editors: Clive Crook, Mark Whitehouse.To contact the senior editor responsible for Bloomberg Opinion’s editorials: David Shipley at davidshipley@bloomberg.net, .Editorials are written by the Bloomberg Opinion editorial board.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com/opinion©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
