WESTERVILLE, Ohio The simmering bad blood between Democratic presidential nomination rivals South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Rep. Beto ORourke of Texas boiled over on Tuesday night at the fourth round Democratic primary debate.
At one point, Buttigieg, who has said that ORourkes gun buyback proposal could hurt Democrats appeal with moderate voters, firmly told O'Rourke: I dont need lessons from you on courage.
The two candidates have jabbed at each other in recent weeks over their differences on combating gun violence and specifically on the merits of the mandatory assault weapons buyback program championed by ORourke.

Ooooh! The REMF desk pilot knows about “courage”??
Donna Brazile looks with a furrowed brow:
“You boys got to get along, here!
Let’s all play as if we were grown ups, just for today.
Otherwise, Trump will be talking about you during his next rally. Is that what you want?”
Yup, two fairies slapping each other.
I can take it in the azz just as well as any other homo.
You’ve gotta be pretty lame to think that these fairies have an ounce of courage. Although they have chutzpah by pushing their crazy policies.
Did they take off their high heels to fight?
Thomas Jefferson, of Virginia:No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Proposed Virginia Constitution, 1776 Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Jefferson`s Commonplace Book, 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764
George Mason, of Virginia: [W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually.. . . I ask, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers. Virginia`s U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788
And to the “they didn’t mean military grade weapons” oh yes they did, muskets where military grade at that time. Also, they where not afraid the deer where coming, and to fight a tyrannical government for your freedom you wont do it with that 3 rnd bolt.

Why would anyone want such children for a president?!!
Yeah butts courage is when his a## is in the air, got it?
Mayor Pete wants to come across like he was Rambo in the military. I think he was more like Rambutt.
Mayor Pete will military shame anyone, even his own comrades.
Buttguy is mean and quite a nasty liar.
Actually, if Pete is scared of girls, which appears to be the case, he is short of courage.
