Beto Flip Flops On Gun Plan

Via The Washington Examiner:

Beto O’Rourke, who is leading the charge among Democratic presidential candidate for confiscating military-style firearms, indicated he is open to AR-15 rifles being used for hunting.

 “I know there are alternative rifles, but the AR-15 is much more efficient at, like, a deer,” a student in Des Moines, Iowa, told O’Rourke on Friday, explaining that not killing an animal immediately causes suffering for the animal and spoils its meat.

“So, this is the first time that I’ve heard the case made for using an AR-15 to hunt deer,” O’Rourke said. “I’ve heard feral hogs in Texas, which are a real problem, a lot of ranches and the farms in my home state.”

O’Rourke then offered a compromise.
