During a speaking even in Virginia, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke mentioned his plans for gun control.
His plans are relatively straight forward…take your guns…period.
“I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do. Americans who own AR-15s, AK-47s, will have to sell them to the government. We’re not going to allow them to stay on our streets, to show up in our communities, to be used against us in our synagogues, our churches, our mosques, our Walmarts, our public places.”
“All countries have video games. All countries struggle with mental health. All countries deal with hatred. But only America has more guns than human beings — 390 million firearms in a country of 329 million people — which kill nearly 40,000 people every year. That’s why, as president, I would institute a mandatory buyback of every assault weapon in America.”
Watch O’Rourke talk about his gun control plans:
Powerhouse Conservative Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky demolished O’Rourke’s moronic idea on Twitter, saying,
“Mandatory #GunBuyBack is a euphemism for #GunConfiscation
And how can they call it a buyback? Our guns never belonged to the government.”
“Gun grabbers are clever with language. Calling it a ‘buy back’ subconsciously instills the false concept that ownership was granted by the government.
That’s not how the 2nd Amendment works. In fact, that’s not how any of the Constitution works.”
Then his next tweets were REALLY the most powerful and what every American needs to know:
“Do they want to take ALL your guns? red flag laws = Take ALL of some people’s guns. semi-auto & mag bans = Take some of ALL people’s guns. Yes, they do, but this is ALL they think they can get right now.”
“Is ANYONE naive enough to think that if EVERY gun control bill being discussed in the news became law THIS year, there wouldn’t be a DOZEN more gun control bills introduced NEXT year?”
“FACT: 50% of mass public shootings are committed with handguns alone, and 80% involve at least 1 handgun. If the government bans ‘assault weapons,’ mass public shootings will still occur, & the same politicians will then try to ban shotguns and handguns.”
