Sheriff’s Departments Refuse to Enforce Beto O’Rourke’s Gun Confiscation

Several law enforcement agencies have gone on the record refusing to assist in Beto’s nationwide gun confiscation.

At least three law enforcement agencies throughout the western United States have made it clear they plan to refuse to participate in the national rifle confiscation plan proposed by Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.

Sheriffs of Eddie County in New Mexico, Weld County in Colorado, and Kinney County in Texas have all rejected the draconian plan, which would force owners of semiautomatic AR-15 and AK-47 rifles to sell their guns to the government. O’Rourke finally admitted that law enforcement would be used to forcibly confiscate the rifles if owners refused to sell under his proposed program.

The Kinney County Sheriff’s Department rejected playing any role in a gun confiscation program in a Facebook post on Saturday, calling out the gun grab as an outright attack on the Second Amendment.

Recently “Beto” O’Rourke made comments about a mandatory buy back for all AR-15 and AK-47 rifles and that those who…

New Mexico and Colorado Sheriffs also went on the record opposing any cooperation with the program in a TownHall article, calling out the Texas Democrat for his downright unAmerican proposal.

Sheriff Mark Cage said he’s “not sure whether [Beto’s] statements are naive or just plain ignorant and arrogant. Maybe it’s all three.” He stated that bloodshed would be inevitable if Beto were to win power and try to act upon his gun confiscation proposal.

It seems clear that Beto is fine with putting law enforcement in harm’s way, provided they were actually to follow federal directives to seize the legally owned firearms of American citizens. After avoiding giving a concrete answer on his plans to enforce the proposal, Beto finally admitted that local cops would be tasked with “recovering” guns.

In the extremely unlikely event that the Texas Democrat’s floundering presidential campaign were to pull off a victory, at least American gun owners can rest assured that at least a few local sheriff’s departments will refuse to participate in any draconian gun grab operation.

LA County Sheriff Wanted to Ban Gun Sales After He Released Criminals Early, But Got SHUT DOWN

The Sheriff’s gun store closure was shut down.

Published

on

The Sheriff of Los Angeles County is ordering all gun stores in his jurisdiction to close as part of the state’s crackdown on public activity in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic. He’s also releasing more than 1,000 non-violent offenders from the county’s jail system.

Villanueva doesn’t seem to have let up on anti-gun sentiment as the concerned public seeks to arm themselves in unprecedented numbers. He earlier called the notion of purchasing a gun in the midst of the epidemic a “bad idea,” stating that the general public couldn’t be trusted to posses guns safely while they’re restricted to their homes in quarantine.

It wasn’t enough for him to merely discourage the public from arming themselves. As of Tuesday, the sheriff has ordered all of the gun stores in his county to close as nonessential businesses. Villanueva has been designated as the Director of Emergency Operations by the county, leaving decisions such as gun store openings up to his discretion.

He’s combined his shutdown of gun sales with a release of 1,700 non-violent inmates from county jails.

Villanueva’s combination of a crackdown on legal gun acquisition and the release of real criminals from the justice system seems like a textbook method to inspire concern among the general public, especially considering his sheriff’s department has ceased to make arrests for many petty crimes during the epidemic.

But according to the sheriff, it’s new gun owners who can’t be trusted with responsibility. He slammed other state and county politicians for the handling of the state’s comprehensive shelter-in-place order. He claimed elected officials were undermining his deputies tasked with enforcing the order.

UPDATE:

Villaneuva’s effort to close the county’s gun stores has been shut down upon intervention of the county counsel.

Villaneuva was unapologetic about his move to shut down gun stores in the midst of the pandemic, claiming the surge of new gun owners represented a great danger that necessitated their closure.
