Beto O’Rourke just went way off the DEEP END on guns

It’s almost like Beto O’Rourke really doesn’t want to get elected president, because he’s now pushing new gun control policies that will get him dismissed faster than an Alex Jones conspiracy theory:

POLITICO – Beto O’Rourke called Friday for gun licensing and a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons, expanding on a controversial gun control platform he advanced in his return to the presidential campaign the previous day.

Part of a proposal to address gun violence and white nationalism, O’Rourke said that, if enacted, anyone who failed to forfeit a banned assault weapon would be fined.

Got it? Mandatory buyback program. You MUST turn in your AR-15s and whatever else they deem as ‘assault weapons’ or you will be fined.

But that’s not all. Beto also wants to levy heavy taxes on gun manufacturers so that he can buy back your handguns too:

In addition to banning assault weapons and requiring their forfeiture, O’Rourke said he would work to implement a voluntary buyback program for handguns. He proposed increasing the excise tax on gun manufacturers and fines on gun traffickers to fund buybacks.

And he wants to force background checks on private gun sales and implement red flag laws:

O’Rourke on Friday called for a ban on assault weapons, trigger cranks, silencers, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines, and he pledged, if elected president, to work with Congress to enact universal background checks, red-flag laws and other restrictions.

But wait, there’s still more…

In the gun-licensing and registry system he proposes, gun owners would have to complete gun safety training and register their guns. O’Rourke would limit licenses to people 21 and older, with an exception for younger gun owners who have hunting licenses.

O’Rourke said he would also seek to limit people to buying one gun per month in an effort to prevent stockpiling. He said he would declare gun violence a public health emergency, make gun trafficking a federal crime and treat right-wing violence as an issue of organized crime.

That’s right, Beto will make you register your guns. I think of all his insane gun control proposals, this one might be everyone’s favorite.

In light of all this I have an announcement. I am officially endorsing Beto’s campaign to win the Democratic nomination.

Because with these anti-gun policies, Trump would destroy him in the general. It would be a cakewalk to election day.

  1. Any political figure who pushes any type of gun control, has went way off the deep end, and doesn’t deserve to be in any elected office. From gun registerin to red flag laws, they should be kicked out of town.

  2. Seriously…..”white nationalism”…… be honest white supremacists weren’t a thing until the media made them a thing by giving them the attention they so craved. I never even met a white supremacist in my lifetime and now they seem to be crawling out of the woodwork according to the corrupt deceptive media.

    1. I have met one Klansman in my 53 years of life, I was 12 and he was in his 80s. I only knew this man was a Klansman because of the pictures on the wall; at that age I knew they were ridiculous. This old guy was my neighbor , and my friend and I did odd jobs for him; my friend was black and I am white. We really got a laugh from a picture of a horse wearing Klan robes, how moronic. That was the first , last and only Klansman I have met. The media will always zoom in on the idiots in the crowd; if there are 10,000 normal people and three Idiots, they will ensure the idiots are in every photo.

    2. Hate to be the bearer of bad news… but if you’re white and do not support abortion up until birth, or 100% Gov’t run healthcare or gun confiscation or the world will die in 12 years if the Gov’t isnt given more power…
      Then you’re a white nationalists..
      Sarc Off

      1. so true in the eyes of commie left………..mentally ill all of them
        I suggest they call before they show up at my house
        ok beto????????

  3. I believe the senator should consider buying back our spent-ammunition. However, I would caution him: six magicians have died performing the bullet catch.

    In all seriousness, I wonder why the president has not pushed a ban on gun-free zones, the only solution that will thwart these mass shooters.

  4. Y’know, in general I’m a pretty law-abiding person (assuming that the law is proper – meaning I ignore pretty much all traffic and environmental laws). But if such legislation were ever passed, I’m straight up just going to start buying black market unregistered firearms.

    This is the grand farce of gun control. There are more guns in America than Americans (not including military hardware). And they really think they can control all of them? No. I’d conservatively warrant that, at best, they know where maybe two thirds of them are – and that’s only because they control armed law enforcement. That’s still over 150,000,000 guns.

    If the State ever comes for my guns – well, not much I can do about that. But they’ll only get the ones they know I have. And if they start trampling my 4A on top of my 2A to find out if I’ve got any I “shouldn’t have” – well, that’s the day that I’ll use them against the badges that come to my door to enforce this garbage.

    I don’t think a lot of hills are worth dying on, but this one would be.

  5. Imagine what it must be like for Mrs. Beto. I mean, the woman has to go out in public – to grocery stores and such – imagine what it must be like for her to be pointed and snickered at – or worse – everywhere she goes. Beto is a stinkin’ fly-covered dog turd – and although Mrs. Beto must have known this when she married him, I doubt that she expected her idiot husband to become such a pariah – and make her entire family outcasts. After Beto’s dopey campaign is finished – where will the Beto family live? Certainly not in Texas.

  6. Beto will lose Texas, in the primaries.
    Beto’s national and state political days are over.
    Beto needs to go on a long vacation to some sandy location (outside of El Paso) and chill out.

  7. a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons,

    you are gonna tax me, then buy back MY guns with MY money…..good luck with that, bub

    1. Bbbbut it sounds good. Besides leftist always want to do “good”…with other people’s money.

  8. Beto is so far out there I fail to see how he ever got elected to Congress, especially in a state like Texas where you would think a radical whack job like him wouldn’t have a prayer.

  9. Hey pendejo, what part of “Shall not be infringed” don’t you understand? If you try you’ll create another civil war and AND ahole libtards will lose because we all know you are UNARMED!!!
