Joe Biden’s New Campaign Manager Has Advocated For Gun Confiscation

Joe Biden has just named the former Beto O’Rourke campaign manager as his new campaign manager.

Do you remember before Beto dropped out, he started making some wildly radical claims about guns and gun confisctation?

This woman was Beto’s manager at the time and she shares some of those views.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Biden Taps Campaign Manager Who Advocated for AR-15 Confiscation

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is hiring the architect of Beto O’Rourke’s failed primary campaign, tapping a vocal advocate of AR-15 confiscation to lead him to victory in the general election.

Jen O’Malley Dillon will be Biden’s new campaign manager, according to the Washington Post. While Biden has advocated for banning—but not confiscating—so-called assault weapons, Dillon led O’Rourke’s campaign as it adopted some of the most radical anti-gun policies in the Democratic field.

The longtime Democratic strategist also publicly backed the former Texas congressman when he called for the confiscation of AR-15s and other popular firearms in the wake of the El Paso shooting.

“My son is 17 months old, which shouldn’t f—ing matter,” she tweeted in response to a September interview in which O’Rourke reiterated his call for AR-15 and AK-47 confiscation. “But thinking of that baby with shrapnel is [sic] his face almost broke me. GET EVERY ONE OF THOSE G—D—N GUNS OFF OUR STREETS.”

The Biden campaign did not return a request for comment.

And we know Biden shares some of these beliefs as well.

The media is trying to push Biden as a moderate.

Don’t buy it.
