O’Rourke Makes Enemies With Mandatory Gun Buyback Plan

Beto O’Rourke is barely hanging into the presidential run. He hasn’t been making much ground in the polls. When he first announced that he was running, people were excited. However, he’s been showing more of his true colors lately. He spoke bad Spanish, he pointed the finger at Trump before offering condolences to those who lost loved ones in the El Paso shooting, and now he wants to take peoples’ guns.

He has been touting a plan for a mandatory buyback of assault weapons. With two shootings happening across America over the span of 28 hours, he has increased his controversial gun control platform.

His proposal goes considerably further than the other 2020 candidates. He wants to ban assault weapons and require that they are forfeited. Further, he wants to implement a voluntary buyback of handguns. As a man from Texas, a state with one of the largest gun owners per capita, he should know that’s a shaky plan at best. Mandatory forfeiture for assault weapons?

What is an assault weapon? That’s where things get even shakier. Since there’s no clear definition on that, it would require him to create a full definition so people know if they have to forfeit or not.

O’Rourke actually took two weeks off from his campaign trail after the El Paso shooting happened in his hometown. When he came back, he had a plan in place and a long speech that blamed Trump for the shootings because it instilled racism. However, the people who conducted the shootings were on-off as opposed to acting as groups, which means that it points more to being mentally unstable than anything else.

O’Rourke wants to enact universal background checks and red-flag laws if he’s elected president. However, there won’t be any need for that because those things are likely going to be taken care of before the end of the year. Our current president will be taking care of those things.

The rest of O’Rourke’s plan becomes obsessive – and shows that he has no clue how guns or gun violence happens. He wants to ban assault weapons, bump stocks, silencers, and high-capacity magazines. There’s an issue, though – bump stocks and silencers are already illegal. The man cannot even stop to look at what current laws are before creating a plan. Clearly, if bump stocks are still being used, people are acquiring them illegally. This is because criminals don’t follow laws.

Further, he wants to require social media platforms to weed out activities that incite violence. Facebook and all of the other major platforms already have filters in place. They also have a way for people to report activity if it is illegal, inappropriate, or is hate speech.

There’s another problem with his plan, too. He wants to mandate that “assault weapons” are turned in with a buyback program. Not all states have a registry to determine who is the owner of a specific gun. This means that people would have to voluntarily identify that they are an owner of such a gun and turn it in. With people clinging to the second amendment, the number of weapons turned in on a buyback program are likely to be minimal. And, if someone does use one to commit a mass shooting, they would be breaking the law anyway. After all, O’Rourke may not be aware that it’s illegal to kill people, so that would be the first law that they break. After that, the shooter is likely not concerned if they’re also getting in trouble for breaking gun laws.

The list of problems can go on and on with O’Rourke’s plan. It’s giving political analysts flashbacks to his ill-conceived immigration plan. He wants to limit gun licenses to people who are 21 and older unless they have a hunting license. There are so many flaws with this part of his plan that it’s hard to decide where to start. Those who enter the military learn how to handle a gun as early as 18. There are going to be plenty of enlisted members who would want to become marksmen, and therefore, practice with a gun before the age of 21. Further, he’s providing a workaround from being 21 simply by being able to get a hunting license.

O’Rourke needs to go back to the drawing board with his plan on guns because there are too many flaws with it. While he’s at it, he needs to learn what is and isn’t illegal now. Maybe if he were to stop hating Trump, he could see that there are already things being done about gun control, so the country won’t have to elect O’Rourke to put an end to mass shootings.

    coming over again to read more news.

  27. o’rourke your a idiot you think us gun owners are going to give up our guns your head is full of shit you moron you and all the other idiots WILL NEVER NEVER BEAT OUR PRESIDENT YOUR A BUNCH OF RETARDS PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN OUT DO EVERY ONE OF YOU PARASITES WITH OUT A SWEAT TRUMP 2020 TRUMP 2020 TRUMP 2020 TRUMP 2020 TRUMP 2020

  28. gun control will be as effective as drug control. both only effect law abiding citizens. while there are a few cases (you can count on one hand) where the criminal legally purchased the weapon he used, the majority of cases involve stolen guns, guns taken from parents where they live which is another issue, or guns bought on the street from other criminals. knives and hammers are much more accessible and responsible for far more murders. if you want to fix mass murders, make the penalty an unacceptable result. stop early prison release. stop letting people off on technicalities. a felon is a felon is a felon. and yes, one major F–k up sticks with you for life. you don’t get to kill a person and then get forgiven with no consequences. second, prisoners loose their rights period. they should get food and water, time to exercise in a confined area outside and access to a lawyer but that’s it. no voting, no tv, no internet, commissary, no benefits. prison should not be better than where they were living in the first place. prison reform is a term that liberals invented and make a lot of money on. this does not happen. third. prison guards, staff, managers, and warden must be held to the highest standards. there are no hi or lo profile prisoners. they are all identical. they receive the same service and are held to the same standards.


  30. Get off his case! He only wants good for our country, and safety for our people. As far as I’m concerned, there can’t be ENOUGH laws in place for gun owners. Mental health evaluations cannot be given to every person, who wants to buy a gun. And, it’s already a ‘given’ that people who kill with guns are NOT mentally healthy to begin with. We need to concentrate more on the sale of the guns, which guns should NOT be sold to unstable people. I guess that DOES lead back to psychiatric evaluation, doesn’t it? The people don’t have the money to pay for those, but our GOVERNMENT does!

    Ha! How many gun owners or future gun owners do you know who would go to a shrink before they can purchase a gun?

    And, they want us to post our name and email address to our comments? Surely, they don’t know how paranoid our people have become due to these horrible massacres!

  31. The idea of buying back weapons which are used by mass shooters is just as stupid as buying back models of vehicles which are used by Islamic terrorists to mow down pedestrians! The only difference is, thus far no one has been deranged enough to propose we do that. Nor is it part of the Democrats evil plans to rescind all driver’s licenses of US citizens, or to confiscate all vehicles, making Americans more equal by forcing us to ride on overcrowded buses. But the Democrats do intend to eliminate our Second Amendment Rights because Americans must first be disarmed before they can replace our Representative Democracy/Constitutional Republic with Socialist tyranny and mob rule. That is their true motive, not “protecting the children.” If protecting Americans was their true motive, officials would have taken common sense steps to prevent mass shootings, but absolutely nothing has been done thus far, neither by school officials, mental health professionals, by law enforcement, or by Leftist employees at our High Tech companies. Multiple red flags, including credible threats of bodily harm issued by deranged internet users, are repeatedly ignored, which indicates that the more mass shootings there are, the better chance of convincing Americans to give up their guns! And that, my fellow Americans, we must not EVER do because being armed is the only way to preserve freedom!

  32. A gun by back program is one of the most stupid ideas to address gun control to stop felons, non US citizens and illegal sales of firearms. The 50 US state should agree on mutual Gun Control laws that Only law abiding US citizens can own firearms. Assault type weapons and extended magazines must be registered with the ATF as the same as fully automatic weapons. The penalties should be harsh and the same in all STATES for all unlaw gun violations . ALL Persons killing a cop should receive the death penalty or life in prison. Online gun sales, buying and selling and gun shows must be halted, unless the person has a state license to sell or buy. All violators of unlaw use and in possession of firearms must receive both minimum fine and jail time.


  34. Since our Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights so American citizens could defend this country against tyranny. Beto O’Rourke is an outright TRAITOR for supporting gun confiscation policies, and any American citizen who continues to support his presidential aspirations are either MORONS or IGNORANT FOOLS!

  35. Who are you to moderate my comment??

    Are you a rino

  36. he is an ass and those who follow him are morons Yolanda Martinez

  37. Beto is out of his mind if he thinks the majority of gunowners will voluntarily give up any weapon. They paid money for them. They paid taxes on them, they bought ammunition and care products for them.

  38. So what about those of us who use our AR style rifles to shoot feral hogs (or other predators) that are destroying crops or fields, or attacking livestock? You have to be able to be accurate and fast. It must be blind stupidity that he thinks these type rifles are used only to hurt/ kill people.
    The AR-15 platform is the “ladies gun”. I have to have a rest to shoot my .270 accurately at a deer, but I can shoot the AR accurately free standing at a hog or what ever predator my be after my livestock. The sight of an AR style rifle is intimidating should the need for self defense arise.
    Also, my pet peeve: Call a firearm a firearm. A weapon may be a baseball bat, knife, broken bottle, rock (ask Able) a Machete, hammer, sling shot with marbles or ball bearings, or any object at hand. A Rifle is a rifle, a hand gun or shotgun speaks for it’s self. Please get it straight. Robert Francis you are a dumbass. You will go down in history as such. there won’t be a ‘buy back’.

  39. That will not go in Missouri. We have a mandatory militia and it’s private citizens. Good luck with that one.

  40. First off queer boy. You nor anyone else bought my firearms. Secondly. Rouge presidents can be brought down by the God fearing constitution living people. You best back off while you still can. And if you P.C. police are on this site. You best believe I will be unsubscribing.

  41. Will say it again the AR15 (Armalite rifle model 15 is NOT an assault weapon as well as a civilian AK47 style) The AR 15 was introduced BEFORE the military got their version which was the M16 (military stock number 16 which at the time was semi or full automatic vs the semi only AR15). You dumba$$es on the left learn some thing before trying to ban it. Websters dictionary before the last couple years of dumbsh!ts trying to control the people I mean ban firearms the definition of an assault weapon was a firearm that had a sector switch to allow automatic firing and was either belt or magazine feed. But since all the lefts whining and the made to fit crap they have pulled they have tried to define it as what an AR15 is. I have a couple AR a5s that are NOT assault weapons but keep it up can always turn them in to what you whine about but then it becomes a waste of ammo for full auto.

  42. It’s show s he doesn’t know how to play the game of politics…. Moron you don’t show your hand up front….you do like Clinton and Obama…. you get in , then go to your original plan….”let’s screw the people “, thank goodness you can’t keep your mouth shut…. go to Minnesota or New York, be there long enough so you can run, because you’re in Texas halfwit, the people you shouldn’t tell you’re coming for our guns….
    Bless Your Heart

  43. No “mandatory gun buybacks”, No “red flag laws”, No “assault rifle bans”, no “gun free zones’, etc., etc., etc. . . . These STUPID LEFT WING policies are making America UNSAFE. These stupid proposals are PROOF POSITIVE that these policies DO NOT WORK. Criminals, by definition do NOT obey the laws, and these STUPID laws make criminals out of honest, law abiding citizens who will THEN be unable to protect themselves from the criminal elements. Those who advocate these senseless laws are TREASONIST TRAITORS to the U.S. Citizen, the U.S. Constitution and should vacate their office IMMEDIATELY and PERMANENTLY, if not LOCKED UP and sent to a prison . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  44. BETO Buy back your own gun and castrate yourself

  45. Another of the anti-American dictatorial Democrats. Enough of these people.

  46. O’ ROURKE HAS LOST HIS MIND OR HE IS TOTALLY ANTI AMERICAN TERRORIST TREASONOUS TRAITOR ON AMERICAN SOIL LIKE THE REST OF THE NAZI SOCIALIST COMMIE DEMOCRATS ON AMERICAN SOIL HAS BEEN FOR GENERATIONS !!!!! JUST LIKE THEY WERE WHEN THE NAZI SOCIALIST COMMIE DEMOCRAT TERRORIST TREASONOUS TRAITORS WHO CREATED THE KKK , THE JIM CROW LAWS ALONG WITH SLAVERY AND GAVE HITLER THE SUB HUMAN PLAY BOOK DURING WWII WHEN HITLER CREATED THE WAYS TO MURDER JEWS AND MANY OTHERS IN THE POISONED OVENS AND OTHER WAYS AS WELL!!! REMEMBER ISLAMIC MUSLIMS WERE ALSO WORKING WITH HITLER TO MURDER JEWS AND OTHERS DURING WWII!!!!! ALSO REMEMBER MUSLIMS WERE KICKED OUT OF AMERICA IN THE 1700’S THE 1800’S AND THE 1900’S FOR BEING BARBARIANS THROUGH AND THROUGH!!!! …. ..Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration…..The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. Beto, once again, proves that he’s an idiot
