In an interview with “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on MSNBC on Wednesday presidential candidate Peter Francis O’Rourke admitted that, yes, he was willing to pty your AR-15 from your cold dead hands. As Townhall.com reports:
Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said "there have to be consequences" for gun owners who do not surrender their AR-15s, which would include police going to their homes and confiscating them….
"OK, but let’s just assume there’s a rancher in Texas that doesn’t, that says, 'I’m not going to do this because this is an unjust law and it’s unconstitutional.' What’s the next step? I think that’s what we need to concede because there will be people that don’t turn the guns back in. What’s the next step for the federal government there?" Scarborough asked.
"Yeah, I think just as in any law that is not followed or flagrantly abused, there have to be consequences or else there is no respect for the law," O'Rourke replied. "So you know, in that case I think there would be a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm and to make sure that it is purchased, bought back so that it cannot be potentially used against somebody else."
First of all, Beto, just what law would that be? A “red flag law” that says you are crazy until proven sane and tow dangerous to defend yourself with a commonly used defensive weapon,? President Obama already tried that with seniors and vets. Or a mandatory buy-back law that to be accomplished du door-to-door gun confiscation as pushed in in New Jersey and Illinois? Which part of “the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” in the Second Amendment do yu not understand? Of course, this is the candidate who celebrated Constitution Day by calling for outright gun confisc...
Of course, Beto expects the law-abiding citizen, perhaps a veteran, protecting his family will simply answer the door and respond to the demand that he surrender his legally owned firearm along with his constitutional rights by saying, “Excuse me, officer, I know I fought for my country and have threatened no one, but since some politician who is protected by armed securiry thinks I’m a danger to my community, well, here they are. And what’s the response time for 911 again?
In Maryland, a man was shot-to-death by police as they attempted to issue a red-flag gun confiscation order. As reported by GunsAmericaDigest:
Gary J. Willis, 61, opened the door to his home with a gun in his hand when two police officers came knocking at 5:17 a.m. on Nov. 5. Anne Arundel County police say Willis put the gun on a table next to the door, but “became irate” when the officers explained that they had come to confiscate his firearms.
Willis grabbed his gun and a struggle ensued, during which the firearm discharged. No one was injured, but the officer not engaged in the struggle shot Willis, and he died at the scene.
