Robert Frances “Beto” O’Rourke, a 1 % Democratic presidential candidate, is politicizing and fundraising off of a mass shooting that occurred in his state of Texas.

O’Rourke, on Sunday night, unveiled a new t-shirt after a Saturday shooting in west Texas that killed seven people and injured more than 20 in Midland and Odessa that features the slogan “This Is F—ed Up.”

O’Rourke released a $30 black t-shirt that repeats the language he used during a campaign speech and on-air during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

“The rhetoric that we used, the thoughts and prayers that we just referred to, it has done nothing to stop the epidemic of gun violence 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,” O’Rourke continued. “We’re averaging about 300 mass shootings a year. No other country comes close, so yes, ‘this is f—ed up! 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 and I cannot accept that.”

During the weekend, O’ Rourke told the press on Saturday that he would “implement a sweeping government buy-back policy for two types of assault rifles” if he were elected president in 2020. “If you own an AK-47 or AR-15, you’ll have to sell them to the government,” he said. (Video Below)
