Country music legend Charlie Daniels has become one of the most entertaining conservative figures on Twitter. He’s as fearless as his music and as outspoken as anyone in Nashville. And when it comes to his guns, it’s wise not to try to relieve him of them.
That’s the message he gave to presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat who has morphed his election campaign so many times he’s becoming the Swiss army knife of social justice warriors. First, it was the environment. Then the border. Then racism with a little more climate change mixed in. Then, back to the border crisis, which he thought was caused by racism and climate change. But lately, the non-contender for the Democratic nomination has become the unhinged champion of gun confiscations, a move that gave him his best polling numbers ever… around 5%.
According to O’Rourke, he has a plan that doesn’t actually address the issue of gun violence. He intends to remove “assault rifles” from millions of law abiding gun owners so only the government and criminals have access to them. It’s not a smart move, but it’s getting him the publicity he craves.
Daniels had a message for him:
Hey Beto when you get down to my part of the country on your gun confiscation trip bring some bandaids with you.

Thankfully, Beto’s chances are about the same as Eric Swalwell’s, who also champions Draconian gun control measures. Swalwell dropped out of the race early, but he still has the same chance of being President as Beto O’Rourke.
