‘Keep that .... on the battlefield’
A visibly shaken Beto O’Rourke condemned the availability of weapons of war after a deadly mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso.
‘‘Keep that shit on the battlefield,’’ he said at a candidates’ forum here, his voice deepening. ‘‘Do not bring it into our communities.’’ O’Rourke broke the news of the attack to a crowd of about 400 and his remarks appeared to straddle deep sadness and simmering anger over the mass shooting.
The former El Paso mayor and congressman was on a two-day visit to Nevada when the shooting occurred.
