By all accounts, Republican Senator Ted Cruz mopped the floor with democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke in a debate on Friday. The hipster doofus drunk-driving democrat however may have actually done himself in. He had the nerve to state that he fully supports the 2nd Amendment. That was a lie, but when you are a democrat, you never say you support gun rights as it turns off the base. O’Rourke might as well have said that he believes babies have a right to live or people should get to keep most of the money they earn.
Friday’s debate was actually pretty one-sided. Cruz scored point after point while O’Rourke was kind of standing there looking stupid. At one point Cruz accused O’Rourke of wanting to write the 2nd Amendment out of the Bill of Rights, which is 100% accurate. O’Rourke responded like this:

“Of course I support the 2nd Amendment,” said O’Rourke.
You can actually hear O’Rourke supporters in the crowd booing that their guy said he supports the right to keep and bear arms. Ted Cruz called O’Rourke out on this obvious lie and then the democrat doubled down on it.
“I fully support the 2nd Amendment,” O’Rourke said.
Fully support? The 2nd Amendment says: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. In order for O’Rourke to fully support that, he has to be against any kind of restriction or infringement on private gun ownership.
The thing is, he wants an assault weapons ban:
At SXSW, Beto O’Rourke says there’s no reason an AR-15 should be sold to civilians. “I have no idea how that polls and I should give a shit what the NRA” thinks about it.

And here’s some more of O’Rourke’s “full” support for gun control from The Houston Chronicle:
During a pair campaign stops in Houston on Thursday, Democrat Beto O’Rourke jumped right into the middle of the gun regulation debate, saying he fully backs a call for universal background checks and a proposal to ban the sale of assault-style weapons.
“There is no reason that weapons of war should be sold to people in this country,” O’Rourke said. Plus he is very proud of how shitty the NRA rates him on gun ownership rights:

There actually aren’t degrees of support for the 2nd Amendment. You either support it or you don’t. Beto O’Rourke wants to arbitrarily ban entire classes of weapons and despises the nation’s oldest civil rights organization that fights for gun rights. He doesn’t support the 2nd Amendment at all, let alone “fully.” He is however fully full of shit.
