Gun Confiscation? “Hell yes,”

“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” O’Rourke said, on the Democratic Party debate stage, for all to hear and see. “We’re not going to allow them to be used against fellow Americans anymore.”

Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, popular Democratic candidate (but far from front runner, Biden “Ban Multiple Bullet Magazines” is currently), stopped pretending at the latest debate in the attempt to secure the presidential nomination. Gun confiscation is the name of the game.

Whether they call it a “buy back” or continue the blunt honesty streak is yet to be determined. They are going to “take” your rifle.

“We’re not going to allow them to be used against fellow Americans anymore.”

Okay, Beto… just where are we allowing these to be used against fellow Americans? Point out this ‘Purge’ arena where anyone can bring their AR or AK and fire indiscriminately upon their fellow citizens? No? It doesn’t exist? You were just obfuscating the topic so much as to imply that murder was somehow allowed because of the ownership of firearms, but just the firearms that account for the smallest percentage of national homicides.

Right? That’s what we we’re doing. Taking out the source of epidemic violence responsible for 0.7% of the deaths the flu causes each year. (Sources CDC and FBI)

Yet no one is claiming we allow the flu to ravage our fellow Americans. It kills 138:1 compared to rifles and yet we praise the efforts each year to vaccinate and prevent the rapidly mutating strain from causing as much harm as we are able to (except anti-vaxxers, but they’re kind of self selecting into the 138 part). Simultaneously politicos and news heads are decrying the existence of rifles.

So now it is in the open, gun confiscation. They will take them. “Hell yes,” they will take them… at gunpoint with their own ARs is the only method that remotely pushes a percentage of compliance.

Gun owners here are tired of it. We’re sick of the double speak. Thank you, Beto, for at least being an honest idiot.

Good luck at your 1-5% depending on polls.
