Facebook Users Want Pro-Gun State Representative Thrown in Jail for Comments Against Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke

Published

on

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.

Posted by Washington Post on Friday, September 13, 2019

 

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.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?

Published

on

Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.

At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.

Ever.”

The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.

That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:

“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”

One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.

The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.

President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”

According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
  • The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
  • The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”

Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.

So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.

All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
