It seems Colorado Congressman, Ken Buck has caused a lot of reation on Twitter with his response to Biden’s gun control plans.
American Military News on Friday reported that Colorado Congressman Ken Buck issued a response to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s vow to deal with “assault weapons” after he teamed up with prominent gun control advocate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.
Buck shared a video taken inside his office in which he addressed Biden and O’Rourke by name and said, “if you want to take everyone’s AR-15’s, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington DC and start with this one?” Buck added, “Come take it”, after pulling the rifle from his office wall and brandishing it.
Bucks Twitter post went viral with thousands of likes and retweets Friday, as well as more than three million video views. Buck received much criticism for the video, as many Twitter commenters accused him of threatening violence against Biden and O’Rourke.
Gun rights advocate, and National Director of the Knights Party based in Harrison Arkansas, Thomas Robb, said, “Anyone who thinks that Congressman Ken Buck threatened Biden or O’Rourke needs to think back to the works that came out of O’Rourke’s mouth early in the Democratic primaries. O’Rourke threatened every law-abiding American citizen who didn’t comply with his proposed gun buyback plan. He said those who wouldn’t comply would be getting visits by law enforcement officers to have their guns confiscated.
Robb added, “Now that’s what I’d call a threat. To tell American citizens that their Second Amendment right is being ignored, and if you don’t go along with it, your personal property is going to be taken by force. Now that’s a threat.”
Robb ended with this, “Everyone needs to remember who threatened who first. To defend your God given rights isn’t threatening anyone.”
