Dems worried “Beto” O’Rourke is playing into Republican hands with his relentless gun confiscation talk


The Hill reports that Democrat Sens. Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin have both distanced themselves from O’Rourke’s comments. Breitbart News reported Manchin as saying this week, “[O’Rourke’s] not taking my guns away from me.”

Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) also expressed his belief that O’Rourke’s confiscatory talk “was a bit of a gift to the NRA.”

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.) said he would support a “voluntary” buyback of AR-15 rifles rather than the mandatory one O’Rourke is proposing.

Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke used the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate to tell AR-15 owners, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” Breitbart News noted that O’Rourke’s admission was a game-changer, as it showed the Democrats’ intention to seize guns. MORE

16 Comments on Dems worried “Beto” O’Rourke is playing into Republican hands with his relentless gun confiscation talk

  1. The Democrats don’t disagree with him, they just want it ti be a surprise when they do it.

    Remember – Forewarned is forearmed.

  2. This idiot is at least smart enough to know that the idiots listening to him don’t know that the military has never used an AR-15.

    That being said, go ahead and order law enforcement, even at the federal level, to come take them and see how it works out. There can’t be 16 million Ruby Ridges or Wacos.

    It isn’t going to happen Robert, and if you or your ilk try, you will have blood on your hands.

  3. All these gun grabbers say you can’t stop a tank or an F16 with an AR 15 don’t realize the only things that have to be stopped are the politicians who give the orders to confiscate guns. It’s a 20+ year old book titled Unintended Consequences by John Ross, dated, but it is worth the read. Probably banned.

  4. The Kiwis were just ordered to turn in their guns or face 5 years in prison. How many of you would comply? And be honest.

  5. “How many of you would comply?”

    I would not comply, but I’m pretty old guy in his seventies with limited time and no obligations to take care of someone else left.

    When I was much younger and had a future to look forward to and a family to care for too, with other people facing the consequences in addition to myself, I really don’t know if I would have then or not.

  6. …a statement on compliance, from one who knows…

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
    -Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , “The Gulag Archipelago”

  7. AOC and Beto.

    Both are beta testing the Democrat’s REAL platform.

    This gives the demon leadership deniability, and also a list of who protests the loudest.

    For later use.

    They don’t forgive.
    They won’t forget.

    It’s coming, maybe sooner than you think…

  8. The Irishman and pandering fake Mexican, Robert Francis, is a gift for Second Amendment rights. Every damn Democrat needs to be asked if they will adopt his confiscation platform.

    Oh regarding penalties for non-compliance…after the first felony, the rest are free. In other words, if the damn Democrats want to make me a felon and ruin my life over firearms ownership, I will feel no obligation to obey any of their laws, whether Constitutional or not, up to eliminating such traitors. Welcome ACW2.

  9. Maybe they figure that honestly saying what he is going to do works so well for Trump that some Dems thought they would give it a try.

    They just don’t realize that Trump is doing what people actually want him to do.

  10. Beeto understands he has no hope this go-round, but he’s counting on a few more spree killings to bring the sheeple around to getting behind a police state in the name of saving society from “gun violence”. His plan is to ride to fame on having been ahead of the curve.
