As we get closer and closer to the 2020 Election, the bloated Democratic field is finally shrinking. Candidates that are polling below double digits are getting desperate, eager to stay alive. One candidate is trying to use any and all tragedies to keep his name afloat. In the wake of recent shootings, he made a major promise to all law-abiding gun owners. Shocking, for a man from Texas.
Robert Francis O’Rourke, who often calls himself “Beto,” is rapidly losing ground in the Democratic primaries. For a time, long ago, it seemed like he had a shot. But over recent months he’s done nothing to impress both the media and liberal voters. He’s polling around 2%. That’s far below the threshold needed to appear in the next round of “Let’s Torture Americans Show”—I mean, Democratic debates.
O’Rourke doesn’t have much to inspire Democrats to support him. After his flash in the pan appearance, he doesn’t seem to have any ideas or plans to keep the left-wing media interested.
So, he’s jumping on recent, horrible events to stir up some attention. And it seems to be working, but not in the way he’s hoped.
There have been a few shootings over the summer. Democrats from all corners of the country have decided the only solution is to pass stricter gun control laws—on top of the mountain of gun laws we already have. Funny how they always ignore the real solution to gun violence: arming responsible, law-abiding citizens.
No, their plan is to take more guns from safe citizens, making them vulnerable to criminals and monsters.
O’Rourke has jumped on this bandwagon to grab more attention for his failing campaign. But he’s going beyond many of his rivals by making a major problem. If elected, he’s going to confiscate every last semi-automatic firearm from American citizens.
Far-left Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke announced over the weekend that if he is elected president, he intends to confiscate tens of millions of semi-automatic firearms from law-abiding Americans.
O’Rourke made the remarks while campaigning in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday when he was asked by a reporter how he plans to address peoples’ fears that the government is going to come and take their semi-automatic firearms.
O’Rourke responded: “I want to be really clear, that’s exactly what we are going to do. Americans who own [semi-automatic firearms] will have to sell them to the government.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Oh, he’s going to force you to sell your semi-automatic firearms to the government. That sounds perfectly legal and not at all a violation of our Second Amendment rights!
This Democrat’s solution to gun violence is to force Americans to give up their guns to the federal government. Not once has he considered that law-abiding citizens who are properly trained in how to use a gun can be a powerful deterrent to gun violence.
He—like the rest of the gun-grabbing socialists on the left—conveniently ignore the many accounts where a person intent on causing harm was thwarted, because a good guy with a gun stopped them. O’Rourke never considers that disarming American citizens would make them far less safe from countless dangers.
That’s because O’Rourke—and the rest of the Democratic Party—isn’t interested in your safety. They are only interested in imposing socialism/communism onto America. Look at all the past communist dictatorships throughout history. The first thing they did when they seized power is confiscate the weapons of the people.
Then, there was no opposition when they erased freedom of speech or religion. Or when they took over private industry. Or when they persecuted or oppressed the people.
Sounds grim, but that’s the kind of America the left wants today. They are no longer patriot, capitalist-loving citizens. They are would-be Marxists who want us to go the way of the Soviet Union.
O’Rourke pretends it’s for our good. He’ll take our guns—and even pay for them.
Sorry, Francis, but no matter how much money you want to pay us—where not selling our freedom.
