Watch: Beto Attempts To Explain Why He Believes Gun Owners Will Comply With Mandatory Buybacks Of AR-15s

Published

on

Just when we think Beto O’Rourke can’t put his foot any further into his mouth, he proves us wrong… again. After saying he would have mandatory buybacks of all AR-15s, O’Rourke doubled down, saying he know people would follow the new law, should it become a reality.

“My confidence is in the people of this country. Go into a gun show in Conway, Arkansas and listening to the owners of AR-15s and the vendors of AR-15s, many of whom, you can imagine, didn’t agree with my proposal, but each of whom was willing to at least have the conversation, some of whom said, ‘Look, you know what? I have an AR-15. Don’t need it. Would gladly sell it back or destroy it,'” O’Rourke told MSNBC’s Joy Reid. “All of them seem like they’d follow the law. We are a nation of laws. It’s part of what defines us and distinguishes us from the rest of the world.”

“I believe that America will comply with the law and I believe that there will be a due process in devising the law in the first place, where we listen to stakeholders, all concerned and affected,” he explained. “But do not allow the delays that we’ve seen that have lasted decades to stop us from finally acting on this.”

“I don’t want to give into the hype or some of the scare tactics out that have been employed to stop us from even considering this in the first place, much like we don’t go door-to-door to enforce any law in the United States. In fact, I don’t think we do that for any law in the United States,” O’Rourke said with a smirk. “This would not be something that we’d do and I only raise that, Joy, because others have said, you know, this is something we would fear if there were mandatory buybacks program. No, we expect people to follow the law. And that’s certainly what I believe will happen.”

So, let’s get this straight.

Mass shooters break the law by shooting people so what does Beto want to do? He wants to punish law-abiding gun owners… by making them hand over their AR-15s. Or, as you like to call it, by “buying them back” (even though they were never purchased from the government to begin with).

Beto is under the impression that people are just going to show up to the police station, hold out their firearm and say, “Here you go! Please destroy on my behalf!” As if. Never. Going. To. Happen.

The people he’s wanting to punish are not the people carrying out these heinous crimes. Those who commit these murders are already breaking the law. Hello! Murder is illegal. You can’t make it even more illegal. And taking away guns from innocent people doesn’t suddenly address the issues we’ve seen with shooters. Not to mention, adding another law to the books doesn’t make a criminal decide to suddenly follow the laws. They don’t wake up one morning and say, “Gee. There’s now one more gun control law on the book. I better change my ways.”

That’s not just stupid. That’s delusional.

Get a grip, Beto. You’re so hell bent on firearm confiscation that you can’t even see how stupid your argument is. If people are obtaining their guns on the black market or through straw purchases, what does having law-abiding people hand over their guns do? Ab-so-lute-ly nothing. All it does is turn them into sitting ducks.

And you say law enforcement won’t come knocking on doors to confiscate firearms? As if gun owners are that stupid. We’ve said for years that Democrats and anti-gunners want complete firearm confiscation. You confirmed our suspicions and what we knew to be true. This is just the stepping stone.

You can say “hell yes!” to a mandatory buyback but the rest of us are saying “MOLON LABE!” And in case you don’t know what that means… come and pry it from our cold. dead. hands.

A version of this story appears on the Townhall website.

    BETO (FRANCIS) is on something really strong to even THINK law abiding gun owners WOULD “GIVE UP” their WEAPONS!!!! (FRANCIS) REALLY NEED TO GET MENTAL ISSUE HELP……

    • Ken says:

      Piece of shit like you did, when you were told not to burglarize homes or drive drunk? Wait you broke both those laws, but that’s only ok for you criminal Beto! Fk you I would gladly stick a gum up your arrsss and blow your brains out, comrade! Communist piece of shit, we didn’t liberate our selfs to like a weak arrsss pussy like you strip of our rights and freedoms, now where can you run and hide when you lose this races and are then just another lazy mommy’s boy sleeping on her couch hiding from us you piece of crap!

  • Dana says:

    And if stupid was gasoline, you’d be a frickin JET!

  • Carol Bowers says:

    This guy has lost it, or never had it.

  • joe says:

    This coming for a CRIMINAL! 1995 Burglary – 1998 DUI – 2006 Eminent domain ethics violation – 2013 Illegal twitter stock purchase – 2018 illegal campaign contributions. But yet he wants to disarm the GOOD Citizens?? Go to HELL BETO and take the rest of the gun grabbers with you!!!

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    I just keep picturing the cartoon of this idiot sitting on a toilet with his pants down around his ankles as a further effort to look like the common folk!
    People should read his poetry/story he wrote in high school. It speaks volumes about his personality and his obsession with guns.

  • c.l. cake says:

    Why do people keep looking at gun control totally wrong? They go on and on about how it won’t stop criminals or mass murderers, and how few military style weapons are actually used in crimes, thinking that it’s the reason politicians like Beano O’Dork want to ban, or buy them back. It’s logical, but far from the truth! When was the last time you’ve heard of a politician being mugged, or killed? (Unless it was Arkancide) They’re not afraid of criminals, and don’t give a tinker’s damn if you are or not! They fear US! We The People! Their plans for a socialist dictatorship in America will NEVER succeed with an armed citizenry, so they keep orchestrating these mass shootings to win sympathy for their cause. Who has access to medical records to find out who is taking psychotropic drugs, and has violent, hate filled posts on social media? Who would realize that all it takes is a dare, or a push in the right direction to set them off? Think about it. After trying to back a coup to oust our president, would you really trust those “three letter” agencies with your freedom?

    • Patriot says:

      BINGO! I’ve been saying the same thing for years. It is all about greed and control!

    • Jamie says:

      Don’t forget Steve Scallise , but that was a Bernie supporter. The Godfather of socialism.

    • Yank says:

      Whether this all goes back to the NWO or what, a country does not take their citizen’s weapons unless there is an element of fear from their armed citizens. Whatever the government’s agenda is, one thing is for certain, they have an agenda that we can only speculate on, at this time. If weapons are taken, we will find out soon afterwards what it is but it will be too late by then. God bless America!

  • Edward Letkiewicz says:

    Beto is Fredo

  • Cynthia says:

    Robert thinks we are a nation of laws. If that’s true, why does he encourage ILLEGALS to BREAK OUR LAWS and help them do it.

  • Donna says:

    There is NO WAY, we as AMERICANS, will ever give up our right to protect ourselves and our loved ones or our 2 nd amendment right to have a gun….AMERICANS WILL USE THEM BEFORE WE LOSE THEM !!!!! THE DEMS UNDER ESTIMATE THE GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA. ……we are not Venezuela !!!!!

  • seeing corruption says:

    Hey Beto the Constitution is a major part of the law! The right to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed! Your oath of office says I shall uphold and defend the Constitution!

  • William Conley says:

    Beto has went head first way into the deep end if he honestly believes his bullshit. Dude breaks federal laws and commits felonies and the fact he’s even allowed to run for mayor let alone president is the biggest joke the world’s ever heard.

  • brian says:

    go sleep on your skateboard you frickin idiot

  • Notalib says:

    My God this man /child is ignorant. Look at the many who gave up everything defending the American way of life,the Constitution and he thinks Americans will roll over for him and give up a huge component of the Constitution? Beto, you aren’t fit for an American office or to be elected for anything.

  • Gerald Cline says:

    Yeah…right…. Beto and his fellow “Marxist/Socialists” are soul brothers to the “Communist/Socialists” who tried to impose their Utopian ideals on a quarter of the world’s population over the past hundred years. The one thing all these “Marxist/Idealists” have had in common is that when they gain power they try to suppress their opposition by rounding them up and killing them. In the past hundred years these “Marxist/Fellow Travelers” murdered more than 150,000,000 of their own citizens. And Comrade Beto thinks we are going to be stupid enough to give up our weapons and let him and his buddies take control? Think the Killing Fields on a scale of 65,000 dead Americans. Think about it…!?!?!

  • jay says:

    Beto is a fool, this would start a war, and he would end up a prime target for everyone. This is the USA the 2nd Amendment protects the right to bare any and all firearms, none should be limited, any type even assault weapons should be legal. The assault weapon ban is a violation of the second amendment, the safe act is also a violation, there are many violations of our rights , the time has come to challenge any and all laws that violate the 2nd Amendment. Take all this to scotus and win.

    • Thomas says:

      Jay, you are so right…the only reason AR’s are called assault rifles is to make them sound bad..the young, liberal indoctronated snowflakes who have never held a job or certainly not served in the military have no idea what they are backing and how close we are to loosing all freedoms we have enjoybe for 100’s of years…the democrats will surely push the gun control to the limit and they actually believe a civil war would be good and they would prevail and then have complete control over the lives of every American…that is what they are wanting and they cannot get that if we still have guns to defend oursleves…

  • rex says:

    you go to Chicago and los angles and get theirs first and promise me that they are gone then and only then will I back you stupid buy back program

  • Guy Clericy says:

    Buying back something they never owned? Only a leftard can come up with stupidity like this, and of course, is Beta O’Barf.

  • Red Devil 5th inf. says:

    The liberals are going to keep this up until there is a revolution in this country and they will lose!

  • Ronald says:

    “We are a nation of laws. It’s part of what defines us and distinguishes us from the rest of the world.”
    Wish someone would ask him why he supports sanctuary states and cities.

  • Derrell says:

    Whew, I was really worried about the left coming to get my guns for a while there. But if bito is delusional enough to think;because I’m a law abiding citizen now and all he needs to do is create laws (that suddenly make me a criminal by osmosis – Post-de-facto law which is unconstitutional – that I’ll just naturally march down the street and turn in my guns just cause he says so? ROFLMAO!!!

    Oh bito bito bito – you ARE $hit-for-brains! LOL!

    What happens when gov’ment starts making noise about gun ownership? Gun sales go UP!!. Is that evidence we plan to obey your laws?

    Here are the numbers; at best if every law enforcement officer and all military personnel all Administrative personnel AND EVEN with all of the U.N. Troops combine together to enforce your law you may have 2.5 million people to go to door and demand gun surrender. Conservatively there are 100 million gun owners, 400 million guns and billions of rounds of ammo in this nation… Yeah, that’s gonna happen.

    The County Sheriff is the Highest Law enforcement authority in a given County. There are over 3100 Counties and County equivalents. Lets say half of them tell the Federal and State governments we ain’t enforcing your laws and you ain’t coming into my county to do it. How’s that gonna work out for you bito?

    The reason you talk nonsense like this is because talk is all you’ve got. Think about this carefully bito; if you create 100 million criminals art the stroke of a pen? WE are armed!

    Folks if they pass their laws and we as the people just say NO!they can’t enforce their laws! Even if they destroy the Constitution. It is our Natural right to protect ourselves – especially from tyrannical government!

  • Mark Traxler says:

    Hahahahahahaha…. Beto, you are so ridiculously funny, that I pissed all over myself. I can’t believe how you just ended your career in politics and wrote your ticket right out of the race. How stupid do you look and sound.???? What a joke you have turned out to be.

  • forager9 says:

    How, do you buy back something? you never owned? the americans are holding on to their guns because, you would be an idiot, to give up something that will protect you in the near future!! i predict that americans wont give up nothing!!

  • Wolfman055 says:

    He not only looks retarded, he actually IS retarded. and a lying sack of shit, to boot. No AR-15 owner said that to him. He’s just a chickenshit fascist fuckwad who knows the only way he can gain and keep power is to completely disarm the American public. Then he and his commie cronies in the democrat party and turn us into Venezuela.

  • Lynne says:

    Never going to happen

  • SusieQue says:

    Thank God this fucking “Idiot” has no chance in hell of winning….he just needs to change his diaper, grab his blankie, stfu and go to bed!!

  • Madame Zorinski says:

    “We don’t do that (go door to door) with any law in the USA” said this clown. Well, let me assure him “WE DO”. Want proof? Take a look at the readily available videos filmed after Hurricane Katrina hit our Gulf Coast Shore. As recently as August and September, 2005, LEO’s in Southeast Louisiana went door to door confiscating guns from law abiding: legal citizens trying to protect themselves from thugs, savages and looters. Not only did LEO’s confiscate firearms, they physically brutalized little old ladies and other helpless victims. You can smirk and mock all you want you piece of crap. Is that what you would do at a public viewing of Ms. Patty getting the crap knocked out of her by LEO’s in her own home because she had a legal firearm? Personally, I would smirk like you if I watched LEO’s do to you what they did to Ms. Patty.

  • Jamie says:

    Next he’s going to raise taxes to pay for buying back your gun with your money.

  • Yank says:

    Beto and the rest of the Socialists are, in my humble opinion, the most unAmerican nitwits ever to roam this country freely! What the Democratic party has become is exactly what our forefathers were talking about when they said, “both foreign and domestic” and “shall not be infringed upon”! There is NO expiration date on the Bill of Rights. Our Constitution is what we, Americans, go by and God bless “We the People’s” America!

  • Tony says:

    What an idiot! It’s against the law to drive while intoxicated. Yet he decided not to obey that law. Burglary is also a crime but that didn’t deter the fool. Go back to El Paso and smoke another joint.

  • Gerald O’Dell says:

    Beto was to be the rising star of the Dems only they got someone with hoof and mouth disease who doesn’t know his ass from his mouth. The more he talks the more stupid he sounds!!!

  • MAGA says:

    A nation of laws? Is that right? Then why is it that the immigration laws are not enforced, fool. Laws stop nothing, you idiot. And you also plan on using OUR money to buy them back? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, you moron. Take money out of a firearm owners pocket and then give it right back to them and then say, “Now give me your firearm”? You’re a special kind of stupid. The government did not sell them to us and CANNOT buy them back. Even if they had their own money, which they don’t.

  • MAGA says:

    Why would any police officer try to take someones gun away from someone in their own neighborhood, knowing that the neighbor knows where they live? I would not do it. Not to a fellow American.

  • MAGA says:

    The Second Amendment was made to protect us from just such people as him. Does he know that?

  • Mr. T says:

    Once a Democrat, always an iDIOT!!

  • Larry says:

    Let’s look at his felony record for hit and run!

  • 2WarAbnVet says:

    George III had the same idea. One April morning his troops came to do just that. They found that Americans don’t willingly surrender their guns to government.

  • Jim C says:

    Beto has to be a real DUMB ASS to think we are going to turn over our guns, just because he says so.

  • Greg Mikulka says:

    Let me explain why Beto is a moron…
    Patriots will NEVER surrender their guns regardless of any political coercion or stunts these enemies of the people try…
    You won’t get my gun, but you might get what’s in it…

  • Steve326m says:

    They won’t come knocking on your door and demand it? Yes they will. See what happened in MD when a 61 yr old wouldn’t give up his gun and they shot him dead right he stood. Eff you Beto. You want our guns? You better have an army for that’s exactly what it will take to disarm us all.

  • Roger Goodledy says:

    Connecticut required registration of every so-called “assault weapon” after Sandy Hook. You had to disclose all guns and disclose how may magazines you owned. Every gun owner in Connecticut apparently owns a thousand P-mags.

    They did a study and determined the group of people least likely to comply with the gun registration act were police officers. Beto’s lying, and he’s dreaming. You enact a national buyback and every AR in America will be “lost in a boating accident” before he can even sign the paperwork into law.

    Not that he’ll ever be President, mind you.
