Beto jumps to politicise shooting to boost his campaign along with other Democrats

White House hopeful Beto O’Rourke was quick to pounce on the shooting in Texas that killed five and wounded several others, cursing on live TV Sunday morning to get his point across about gun violence.

The 46-year-old former congressman appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and was played a clip shooting in west Texas, where he said the violence across the country was “f---ed up.”

After the clip played the word was bleeped out.

But O’Rourke used the same language on CNN where it wasn’t censored.

“The rhetoric that we’ve used … it has done nothing to stop the epidemic of gun violence,” O’Rourke said.

“To protect our kids, our families, our fellow Americans in public places. At a Walmart in El Paso where 22 were killed. In Sutherland Springs, in a church," he said.

"One or two a day all over this country. A hundred killed daily in the United States of America. We’re averaging about 300 mass shootings a year. No other country comes close.”

“And if we don’t call it out for what it is, if we’re not able to speak clearly, if we’re not able to act decisively, then we will continue to have this kind of bloodshed in America,” he added.

“And I cannot accept that.”

The 2020 hopeful then discussed how he wants to see red flag laws, universal background checks, and a ban on assault weapons.

Last month, fellow presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) also called for strict new gun laws to be introduced that will allow for authorities to confiscate firearms from "racist" Americans who may be likely to spread "hate."

Sen. Harris wants a concept similar to "red flag" gun confiscation laws - that permit the removal of firearms from people considered a "danger to others or themselves."

The California senator is hoping to expand on the red flag idea with a proposal to take guns away from people suspected of being a white nationalist, who may commit a "hate crime."
