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.
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.
