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.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
