Congressman Ken Buck (R-CO) took to Twitter on Friday with a message to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and former candidate Robert Francis Beto O’Rourke, daring them to take away his AR-15 out of his office.

O’Rourke responded to Rep. Buck on Twitter later in the day by claiming “these are weapons of war”.

Joe Biden accepted Beto’s endorsement Monday night in Dallas and told the former Texas congressman that he will be involved in federal gun control efforts if Biden takes office.

“I want to make something clear: I’m going to guarantee you this is not the last you’re seeing of this guy,” Joe Biden told the crowd in Texas. “You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re going to be the one who leads this effort. I’m counting on you. We need you badly, the state needs you, the country needs you, you’re the best.”

O’ Rourke, who dropped out of the Democratic presidential race in November 2019, made gun confiscation a central part of his platform, telling voters, “hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47” during a Democratic debate in September.

Rep. Ken Buck posted a video message on Twitter Friday for the gun grabbers: “I have a message for Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke. If you want to take everyone’s AR-15 in America, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C., and start with this one?” Buck asked before grabbing the gun from its mount on the wall behind him. “Come and take it.” (Continued Below)

Beto O’Rourke responded after Rep. Ken Buck dared him to take his AR-15 away: “This guy makes the case for both an assault weapons ban and a mandatory buyback program better than I ever could”.

“These are weapons of war that have no place in our communities, in our politics or in our public discourse,” O’Rourke claimed. (Video Below)
