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.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
