Cat Fight! Beto O’Rourke unloads on Pete Buttigieg after he criticizes mandatory gun buybacks

Cat Fight! Beto O’Rourke unloads on Pete Buttigieg after he criticizes mandatory gun buybacks

Beto vs. Mayor Pete could turn out to be the Kamala vs. Tulsi of the next debate. Except in this case, it would be entertaining if they both destroyed each other’s campaigns.

There was a gun control forum in Las Vegas on Wednesday, one day after the 2 year anniversary of the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting that left 58 dead and hundreds more injured.

Instead of it being a run of the mill forum full of Democrats all agreeing with each other on Orange Man Bad and the supposed need to curb 2nd Amendment rights, there were some fireworks between Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg.

It all started when Buttigieg sat down for his question and answer session with moderator Craig Melvin from MSNBC. Melvin asked Buttigieg about the calls from some of the other candidates for an implementation of a gun buyback program, and noted there was disagreement among them as to whether or not it should be mandatory.

Asking him to ignore the “political feasibility” of a buyback program, Melvin wanted to know what Mayor Pete’s thoughts were on buyback programs “from a policy standpoint.”

Here’s what Buttigieg said:

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., supports a voluntary buyback program for assault weapons, and has been critical of O’Rourke’s plan.

“As a policy, it’s had mixed results,” Buttigieg said, saying that usually, the guns turned over in buyback programs are antiques and family heirlooms.

“We’ve got to do something now,” he said, adding that often “a shiny object makes it hard for us to focus.”

Watch Mayor Pete talk about this issue below:

O’Rourke, who along with Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris believes America needs a mandatory gun confiscation program, lashed out when it was his turn at the forum later, suggesting Buttigieg, an Afghanistan war veteran, was “afraid of doing the right thing right now”:

“I heard some of the comments made today on this stage, those who are worried about the polls, and want to triangulate or talk to the consultants or listen to focus groups, and I’m thinking about Mayor Pete on this on this one, who I think probably wants to get to the right place, but is afraid of doing the right thing right now,” O’Rourke said at a gun violence prevention forum.

Watch Beto’s remarks about Mayor Pete during the forum below:

In what looks like a post-forum interview, O’Rourke went even further, saying he was “really offended” by what Buttigieg said:

“What Pete has been saying is that a mandatory buyback is the ‘shiny object’ that is distracting us,” O’Rourke said, grimacing. “How in the world can you say that to March for Our Lives? How can you say that to survivors of mass shootings in this country? How can you say that to a majority of Hispanics in America, certainly in Texas, who fear that they will be the victims of a mass shooting inspired by racism and hatred that has been welcomed into the open by this president and has been armed with weapons of war? I was really offended by those comments.”


“He represents a kind of politics that is focused on poll-testing and focus group-driving and triangulating listening to consultants before you arrive at a position,” O’Rourke said, slamming Buttigieg. “I think our politics has to be about doing the right thing, saying the right thing.”


Per CNN, there has been bad blood between the two campaigns since April, when Buttigieg joked that “I hear the way you ingratiate yourself to voters is to stand on things,” which O’Rourke did in some of his early campaign stops. Also, this is not their first clash on the issue of a mandatory gun buyback program:

The two had already clashed in September, when Buttigieg said O’Rourke’s push for mandatory buy-backs — which he has called for in the wake of a mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso, Texas — played into the hands of Republicans looking for reasons to back away from gun control measures at a time when Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell were “at least pretending to be open to reforms.”

The podium order for the October 15th Democratic debate was announced earlier this week. As you can see below, only Andrew Yang separates the two:

Beto vs. Mayor Pete could turn out to be the Kamala vs. Tulsi of the 4th debate, although in this case it’d be entertaining if they both destroyed each other because they’re both sanctimonious hypocrites whose campaigns aren’t going anywhere.

Gun control? No, it is people control. Controlling the good people.

    We don’t need any more gun control in this country.

    But we sure need some Communist-in-Democrats Disguise Politician Control.

Cat Fight!

LOL I see what you did there!


Well I guess as long as they don’t call each other butterscotch pudding and eat each other up….

Or go all “Unhinged: Rashida Tlaib –

Agrees US Marshals Should Hunt Down White House Officials”

“Beto vs. Mayor Pete could turn out to be the Kamala vs. Tulsi of the next debate.”

Except in this case, neither candidate has a chance in hell of winning the nomination, unlike Kamala who got her crap ruined by Tulsi.

I really wish people would stop using their terminology.

It is LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE to have a ‘buyback’ of something they never owned in the first placed.

It’s confiscation.

Maybe the Democratic gun controllers are even dumber than I think they are, but I doubt it.

The FBI’s newly released crime data for 2018 show that 2.9% of firearms murders are committed with rifles, of which AR-15s are only a subset. If you believe in the gun control mantra (which I definitely do not), you’d have to be really stupid to stop at confiscation of AR-15s.

I realize that logic and “progressives” have only a tangential relationship, but the logic is nonetheless clear: AR-15s are only the beginning for them.

The only gun control that I want out of these two clowns is at ten paces like Hamilton v Burr.

i wasn’t aware that either of these two oxygen thieves actually had a valid “campaign”…

I would tell these folks: Disarm your inner cities, your gang-infested neighborhoods first, and then…we’ll talk.

    The pols aren’t going to disarm criminals. You and me they’ll disarm. But not actual criminals

    Gang bangers a vital part of the Democrats’ Get-Out-The-Vote campaign. In Chicago the crooked pols will warn the gang bangers when the police are planning to hit them hard.

    And it’s not just Chicago. The town I was born and raised in, Oakland Kali, is just as filthy and rotten as Chicago.

    These are not exceptions.

    One of my favorite police blogs is:

    How anyone can stand doing that job, knowing that the people running your city hate you and are in league with the obvious criminals, I’ll never know. Or, I do know. The cops I have known in general love the people in their lives. So they put up with the b***s***. I’ve known a few bad cops. The kind of cops who will tell you that they aren’t sticking their necks out for anyone.

    “Only 15 more years until I start collecting retirement pay.” ROAD, we called it when I was in the Navy. Retired On Active Duty. But most cops aren’t like that.

    When you see a cop in a restaurant or coffee shop, pay the bill for them. And make sure nobody tells them who did it for them. You don’t have to advertise. Eventually you’ll get your reward.

Alfred E. Butt is useless, despite having a high IQ. O’Rourke is useless, and has a very low IQ.

In summary: (1) a high IQ means nothing without common sense; and (2) O’rourke is a moron, from any angle.

Who? Oh. Riiight. Those two doofuses.

I practically forgot that some people other than Joey Ukraine, Fauxcahontas Warren, Heels Up Harris, and Feel the Bern Sanders were also running for the DNC POTUS nomination. Wasn’t there some thick necked Chinese dude, a mystical crystal worshiping girl, a chick with a salad fork comb, a crazy Mexican, a black dude with a lazy eye, and a few other wackos running too…? I keep forgetting. ¯|_(ツ)_|¯

“The majority of the American people…” Isn’t it time that someone remind the man-child that the Constitution aka “rule of law” takes precedence over the desires of the mob? The bill of rights protects us from a government that has been corrupted by the authoritarian American left wing. That’s kind of why they wrote it.

o’rourke is so damned stupid he hasn’t even stopped to consider that should the shyte indeed hit the fan and people take to the streets to defend their rights, he and his dumbass supporters will not be long for this world

    One of the reasons I moved to Texas was, well, not to pollute the state. One of the impressions I get from Texans when I tell them I’m originally from Kali is that we’re all moving here to ruin the state.

    Not me. I love Texas just how I found it.

    Texas reminds me of the best parts of California. And there are still good parts, just not as many as there were forty years ago. Even now when you get away from the coastal strip running from Los Angeles to San Francisco California is really no different from any other western state.

    I’m amazed that the liberals have taken over the state. Considering how they massively abort their children it should not be possible for them to be able to outvote me.

    As the saying goes, I wasn’t born in Texas but I got here as quick as I could.

    “The Alamo Davy Crockett: You all can go to hell, I’m going to Texas”

      I’ve considered the same. Cold wet western WA is starting to get to us and TX looks good as a red retirement place for a couple old deplorables like us.

      Not every Kali who moves here is a D though. New neighbor is an R, but took awhile to tell us – after feeling us out for several months.

    Arminius in reply to texansamurai. | October 5, 2019 at 2:06 am

    It’s a funny thing, Tex. I keep reading in the Washington Post and the NY times that when it comes to gun confiscation, people like me are just going to talk tough but then when push comes to shove we are going to fold like a cheap suit.

    Another thing is, who is going to do the gun confiscating? I don’t know a single cop who is willing to go along with that.

      Tom Servo in reply to Arminius. | October 5, 2019 at 12:30 pm

      They love to talk about gun confiscation. I always think “Hey, I can think of some neighborhoods in Chicago full of felons with guns, which is clearly illegal. Why don’t you start there? Go in, knock on their doors, tell them all you’re gonna search their houses for guns. What could possibly go wrong?”

    Arminius in reply to texansamurai. | October 5, 2019 at 2:22 am

    It’s hard for me to believe this furry is originally from Texas, and I’m not.

    BTW, has anyone ever seen a picture of O’Rourke that didn’t make you want to punch him?

    I feel safe in saying this as I am confident Beta O’Rourke will never be president and therefore will never qualify for Secret Service protection.

      Firewatch in reply to Arminius. | October 5, 2019 at 5:51 pm

      Welcome to Texas, we might need a Navy again. One thing you have to understand about Texas is everything is bigger here and that includes our morons.

That fella directly behind Beta’s right hand in the lead picture is a little old to be wearing those tight trousers. He’ll probably never graduate to boxers…

Cat fight? With those two, more like p***y fight,

Somewhat fitting that the debate lineup is shaped like a boomerang

Everything that the Dems have thrown at Trump comes back to whack themselves in the forehead

Interesting it appears the Dems are running wussy men and fire breathing women.
