‘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.
