The Democrat Party’s investment in faulting law-abiding citizens for the actions of criminals creates nothing of value for anyone. As a nation, we’ve been through this time and time again, yet the facts remain. Criminals do not follow gun control laws, nor do they care about gun-free zones or mandatory buyback programs. This is a reality which the radical left continues to ignore in their quest for power and government control.
Last night, 2020 Democrat candidates gathered in Ohio for the fourth primary debate. The candidates covered a series of subjects, but one of them just so happened to involve gun control and mandatory buybacks.
As we all know, Beto O’Rourke once previously declared to Americans, “hell yes, we’re gonna take your Ar-15, your Ak-47!”
Last night, O’Rourke doubled down on this vow; as a matter of fact, he took things a step further by threatening “consequences” if law-abiding citizens don’t hand over their rightful property to the government, as documented by Breitbart News!
Everything to Know About O’Rourke’s Threats
Since his prior threats to take Americans’ AR-15s and AK-47s, patriotic Americans have confronted O’Rourke at least twice at his rallies and town halls. Unfortunately, the 2020 Democrat has not been truly listening to the people who he wants to vote for him; if O’Rourke actually were listening, he’d realize that mandatory buybacks are counterproductive and Americans want to keep their guns.
Like most Democrats, O’Rourke doesn’t truly care about the American people; he simply wants to expand the power of government in citizens’ lives, hence his zest for mandatory buyback programs.
When asked about how he expects to enforce mandatory buyback programs, O’Rourke declared that his “fellow Americans” should “follow the law the same way we enforce any provision.” He then flagrantly stated that lawful citizens will have their guns “taken” from them and face consequences if they fail to comply with mandatory buybacks.
In O’Rourke’s own words:
“If someone does not turn an AR-15 or an AK-47, one of these weapons of war, or brings it out in public and brandishes it, in an attempt to intimidate…then that weapon will be taken from them. If they persist, there will be other consequences from law enforcement!”
The Consequences O’Rourke Should Worry About
Instead of threatening lawful citizens, O’Rourke should worry about the political consequences that he’ll face as a result of adopting such a radical, anti-American stance on guns. If the 2020 Democrat truly believes that his rhetoric will appeal to anyone other than progressives and other leftists, then he’s kidding himself.
If O’Rourke were smart, he’d take a look at how Americans are responding to him. Lawful citizens don’t want to be, nor should they be, held accountable for the malpractice of vicious criminals. By “buying back” so-called “weapons of war,” O’Rourke will only ensure that criminals have exclusive access to these firearms.
