El Paso, Texas — Former Texas Congressman and failed Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate, Beto O’Rourke has made an announcement this morning before tonight’s Democrat debate that he’s now calling on banks and credit card companies to refuse service to sales of so-called “assault weapons,” “gun/ammo manufacturers who produce assault weapons,” and “sales w/o background checks.”
While Beto doesn’t seem to have a chance of becoming the Democrat nominee for President, his announcement today should be a very clear sign to gun owners, sellers, and manufacturers of where exactly the left wants to take the gun control debate.
“Red Flags” and gun confiscation are simply precursors to ultimately virtually eliminating your ability to purchase a firearm.
NEW: Beto O’Rourke has returned to Texas for tonight’s debate doubling down on gun control. Now calling for banks and credit card companies to refuse service to:
➖ assault weapon sales
➖ sales w/o background checks
➖ gun/ammo manufacurturers who producing assault weapons

Beto isn't just a bad politician, but he is also a garbage human being.
This is a complete smear. Private lenders allowing customers to make legal transactions have no complicity in mass shootings. Only a complete ghoul would suggest otherwise. https://t.co/ZItx0qTxpw
