On today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co. you’ll get to hear from Evan Todd, the Columbine survivor who asked Beto O’Rourke about banning all semi-automatic firearms, not just the guns Beto calls “assault weapons”. We talk not only about what prompted Todd to ask the candidate the question and what he thinks of Beto’s response, but the assumption by many in the media that because Todd survived Columbine, he must be a gun control supporter.
In fact, it’s quite the opposite, as Todd made clear in our interview and on social media.
I wanted a clear answer from Beto of where he draws the line, but never got one. To answer my own question on if we should ban guns, the answer is: HELL NO! As far as my stance on guns? The Second Amendment supports me. https://t.co/2W0fPzn0aD

It’s fascinating, by the way, to see some of Beto’s supporters accuse Evan Todd of misrepresenting himself by not telling Beto he is a 2nd Amendment supporter, or claim that his question of O’Rourke was some sort of “gotcha” question. As Todd makes clear on today’s program, it was a genuine question and he wanted O’Rourke’s genuine answer.
Also on today’s program, we feature an armed citizen from South Carolina who put a stop to a rampage involving an angry man and a pickup truck, a Boston man arrested for murder just months after he was given probation for a felony weapons charge, and an Arkansas police officer in the right place at the right time who was willing and able to do the right thing.
