Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s comments calling for the confiscation of AR-15s has ignited political debate on social media in the aftermath of the recent Democratic Party debate.
Tensions on both sides have been so high that O’Rourke supporters on social media are now calling for Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain’s arrest.
BLP covered how Cain made waves by stating that “My AR is ready for you Robert Francis” after O’Rourke declared on Twitter, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s.”
On a Facebook post shared by The Washington Post, O’Rourke’s most rabid supporters pounced on Cain immediately.
O’Rourke received what he described as a “death threat” from a fellow Texas politician.
One poster said, “I stand by Beto! He makes sense and has displayed courage! Weapons of war have no business in the hands of private citizens.”
Another poster even called for Cain’s arrest stating, “Your own statesman threatening your life.? Really? Have him arrested, vote him out of office! Come on Texans? Is this your best?”
Similarly, another user left a comment calling for the FBI to arrest Cain. She said, “Well, I hope the FBI comes knocking on the door of that Texas politician. Beto just proved why they shouldn’t be in the hands of the public. Those guns are meant to kill people. They should not be on the streets or in the homes of Americans. End of.”
Political debate has stayed heated since the El Paso shootings in August. Politicians from across the political spectrum have called for gun control legislation ranging from universal background checks to red flag laws.
However, O’Rourke has pushed the envelope by advocating for the direct confiscation of AR-15s.
O’Rourke is at the bottom of the polls right now, but his latest anti-gun declarations represents the most radical element of the Democratic Party’s anti-gun agenda.
It could be a matter of years before the rest of the Democratic Party follows suit and starts advocating for gun confiscation.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
