WATCH: Rep. Ken Buck Challenges Biden and Beto to “Come and Take It”

March 6, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Ken Buck challenges frontrunner Joe Biden and failed presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke to start with him if they plan to take guns from law-abiding citizens.

"I have a message for Joe Biden and Beto O'Rourke, 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," Rep. Buck said. "Come and take it."

After failed presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke infamously said, "Hell yes we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47" on the debate stage last September, Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden recently announced that he will put O'Rourke in charge of his gun control efforts. Biden said he's "counting on" O'Rourke to "take care of the gun problem" for him.

Rep. Ken Buck has just one message for the gun-grabbing duo: Come and take it.

"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," Rep. Buck said.

Rep. Buck was given permission from Capitol Hill Police to display this unloaded, locked, American flag-wrapped AR-15 in his office located in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.
