Democratic 2020 candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke believes that the government will not need to coercively confiscate firearms from violent criminals, because they will hand over their weapons.
O’Rourke made this assertion on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, during a CNN interview while he was outlining his mandatory “buy-back” proposal. The former congressman from El Paso claims that mass shooters will simply turn in their AR-15s under his legislative proposals.
CNN host Carol Costello asked Beto: “You expect mass shooters to follow the law?”
“Our fellow Americans will follow the law, yes,” O’Rourke replied.
However, Costello expressed skepticism stating that “Mass shooters … don’t follow the law — by definition.”
She continued, “It doesn’t make sense that people are going to hand over their ‘assault weapons’ if they’re mass shooters. If they want to do harm to people, they’re not going to follow the law.”
The National Rifle Association (NRA) commented on the clip from the interview, labeling O’Rourke’s gun-grabbing proposal as “shocking.”
“They kept reminding Beto that criminals don’t follow laws and won’t turn in their guns,” the NRA tweeted. “Beto refused to answer how he plans on carrying out his scheme. This came hours after Beto promised to go door-to-door.”
O’Rourke is under the impression that deranged shooters will somehow give up their firearms voluntarily under his anti-gun proposal, which in many ways is the spiritual successor to the Assault Weapons Ban of 1994.
This past gun control legislation was found to be ineffective in curbing gun violence according to a report from the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice.
Nevertheless, gun controllers don’t care about facts and they continue pushing for their anti-gun schemes.
They will have a tough road ahead of them when considering that there are 16 million AR-15s in private hands in the United States based on data from the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax
A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.
Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.
According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.
But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.
Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.
Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.
“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.
Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.
Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.
In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.
“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.
America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.
A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
