Congressman Launches Ad Challenging Biden To Come Take His AR-15

Colorado U.S. Rep. Ken Buck released an ad of him with an AR-15 challenging Joe Biden and Beto O'Rourke to take it away.

Washington, DC – A congressman from Colorado released a campaign ad on Friday morning that trolled former Vice President Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke for their promises to take away everyone’s AR-15s.

The campaign ad for incumbent U.S. Representative Ken Buck (R-Colorado) was posted just days after Biden promised that if he was elected, he would have the notoriously anti-gun O’Rourke help him solve the nation’s gun woes, CNBC reported.

“I want to make something clear — I’m gonna guarantee you, this is not the last you’re seeing of this guy — you’re gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you’re gonna be the one who leads this effort,” Biden said after the failed Presidential candidate endorsed his candidacy on Super Tuesday.

The re-election ad was filmed in Buck’s office on Capitol Hill and featured him standing in front of a wall with a map of the world and an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle wrapped in an American flag mounted on it.

“I have a message for Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke,” Buck said. “If you want to take everyone’s AR-15s in America, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one.”

Then he turned and took the AR-15 off the wall and held it confidently.

“Come and take it,” the congressman challenged before the commercial ended.

“This guy makes the case for both an assault weapons ban and a mandatory buyback program better than I ever could,” O’Rourke tweeted in response. “These are weapons of war that have no place in our communities, in our politics or in our public discourse.”

Buck, who is running for his fourth term in office, is also chairman of the Colorado Republican Party.

“I have always been a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and will continue to stand up to any attacks on the law-abiding gun owners of Colorado’s Fourth District,” he said in a press release about the campaign ad that was posted to his website.

The press release explained that the congressman got permission from the U.S. Capitol Police to display his gun on the wall in the Rayburn House Office Building.

Buck’s gun has a trigger lock and is kept unloaded, according to CNBC.

The congressman previously told The Washington Post that he had the weapon's bolt carrier assembly removed before he brought it to Capitol Hill as an added precaution.

The one sure bet is that neither Puto or Gropin' Joe have the testicular fortitude to try to take anyone's firearms away. They'll be hiding in their basements, pissing their diapers, and hoping that everything goes the way they want it to.

The Irish are so damned ashamed to have O'Rourke have a shred of Irish blood in him.

I hope he’s got that permission in writing. I’d love to meet him Joe Arapio and Grady Judd in person

They're not concern about taking AR15s from legit gun owners... All they want is a soapbox to stand on and beat their chest and get votes to get elected into the White House.
These guy's will sell their mothers soul to get in there.

Stand tall and smile.

Because you know that no politician can take your rights, nor your guns.

And if they try? Then you fight.
