One of O’rourke’s 2020 opponent, South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, agreed that O’rourke’s statement is counterproductive, given that the Republicans are currently discussing at least gun safety.
“If even the President and even [Senate majority Leader] Mitch McConnell, are at least pretending to be open to reforms, we know that we have a moment, on our side,” he told CNN. “Let’s make the best of it and get these things done.”
O’rourke hit back, tweeting: “Leave millions of weapons of war on the streets, because Trump and McConnell are at least pretending to be open to reforms? The calculation and fear is what us here in the first place. Let us have the courage to say what we believe in and fight for it.”
