At Thursday night 2020 Democrat Presidential debate, the field of candidates sounded more like the anti-Constitutional Party, rather than members of a Constitutional Republic! In fact, between their repeated promises of confiscating American citizens financial income, stealing their guns, discriminating against white’s, especially white males, slamming and discriminating against senior citizens, and snuffing out the American dream through the government takeover of healthcare, businesses, and entire industries, like the coal industry, oil industry, auto industry, farming and manufacturing industry, power grid, and much more, it has revealed a frightening trend, in their effort to transform America into more of a oppressive Soviet-style nation, rather than freedom-loving one!
In fact, after repeated reassurances that the Democrats would not be after gun confiscation, Beto O’Rourke answered a question about gun confiscation, and he answered not simply that he would absolutely be in favor of confiscating guns, but he added: “Hell Yes”! He then tried to paint AR-15’s as a military weapon. However, apparently, Beto doesn’t know much about guns, because the AR-15 rifles are far from military-type weapon!
In fact, rifles that meet most of these criteria, but not all, are not assault rifles, despite the radical left frequently calling them as such. For example, semi-automatic-only rifles like the Colt AR–15’s are not assault rifles, as they do not have select-fire capabilities, and will only fire off one round per pull of the trigger. On the other hand, the military M-16 will shoot multiple rounds on one trigger pull, making it designed to kill as many people as possible on the battlefield. AR-15’s are designed more for home self-defense, so the more inexperienced shooters could defend their castle!
For example, the Gun Digest wrote how the AR-15 is…
Light, compact, manageable and accurate, the AR-15 for home defense has all comers beat hands down.
Why an AR-15 for home defense is the smart choice:
- At around 7 pounds it’s maneuverable.
- The controls — safety, mag release, trigger — are intuitively positioned.
- Low recoil makes mastering form and control easier.
- Rails allow easy mounting of lights, lasers and optics.
- 55-grain FMJ is ideal and cheap home defense ammo.
- The round will yaw or tumble when it impacts at close range.
- 20- to 30-round capacity ensure superior firepower.
- The manual of arms is simple.
- They are as or more affordable as other options.
Handguns are handy. Shotguns are powerful. But when it comes to the defense of one’s castle, the most versatile tool, besides a Secret Service detail assigned to you, is the AR-15.
Why? Simple: It’s light and compact, has low recoil and great accuracy, and can be configured any way you wish.
Regardless, Beto went on his gun-confiscating, freedom-loathing tirade! Breitbart News reported how the…
Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign debuted new merchandise Thursday night designed around his biggest line of the Democratic primary debate.
The campaign’s web store is now selling a shirt with red, white, and blue letters promising widespread gun confiscation.
“Hell yes we’re going to take your AR-15” the shirt reads, followed by the “Beto for America” slogan.
The t-shirt style comes in “Unisex” and “Ladies cut.”
O’Rourke made headlines in Thursday’s debate, promising to make AR-15 and AK-47 rifles illegal and to confiscate them.
“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” he said, as the crowd cheered. “We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.”
To support that position, O’Rourke told the story of a woman whose daughter died in the El Paso mass shooting, claiming that the teen girl bled to death “over the course of an hour because… there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time.” However, his version of the story exaggerated or falsified many details, according to local news affiliate KOSA.
Weeks earlier, O’Rourke began selling a gun control t-shirt that read “This is F*cked up,” referring to an interview he gave after the El Paso mass shooting in Texas.
The Daily Caller added that…
Former NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch blasted Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke for “trying to raise money money off of a threat to the public.”
Appearing on Friday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with guest-host Brian Kilmeade, Loesch called a message on a T-shirt being sold by O’Rourke’s campaign that says “hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15” a threat to “forcibly steal” someone’s “lawfully owned and responsibly used property.
“I am absolutely amazed that a lawmaker, that someone running for the highest office in the land would actually try to raise money off of a threat to the public. And I want to be really clear about this. When you tell law-abiding Americans that you are going to forcibly steal their lawfully owned and responsibly used property, that’s a threat. And saying that ‘no you are not, I want to be able to defend myself in return.’ That is not a threat.”
Loesch called O’Rourke’s promise to take away the property of law-abiding Americans a “threat of promised action,” then referred to another attempt “at mass confiscation of firearms in the United States … Wounded Knee.”
“So I don’t know if that’s what Democrats and Beto O’Rourke are trying to move us towards,” she said. “I sincerely hope not. I hope they respect the law of the land. I hope they respect the Constitution. But, I just find this talk reprehensible and I think that the party needs to show where they are with Americans and condemn it.”
Loesch pointed out the Democrats ignorance of “firearm specifics”, and said that they should…
“show the respect of understanding the issue” before “talking about restricting our rights. Beto O’Rourke just tried red-flagging Americans, so I hope all of those Republicans [learn] this is where red flag laws get you,” Loesch concluded.
Sadly though, Beto isn’t the only 2020 Democrat Presidential candidate who seeks to go against Americans constitutional rights! In fact, Kamala Harris (D-CA) went onto CNN’s State of the Union, and vowed that if she was elected President of the United States, she would strip gun dealers licenses, who she claims “fail to follow the law”! However, she failed to note exactly what criteria for “failing to follow the law” would deem a confiscation of a gun dealers license, but it opens up the possibility that a dealer gets a parking ticket, and his or her license would be confiscated! Therefore, the policy could eliminate private gun licenses altogether! Then, Harris responded to the question from Jake Tapper, of whether or not she would support implementing ‘federal gun licenses’, she responded…
“I like the idea. Jake, I’ll tell you, on this issue of the need for gun safety losses, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue. What we’re at a loss is people in Congress have the courage to do something.”
In other words, Harris is calling for yet another state right being stripped away, as to further empower an out-of-control and power-hungry federal government, who seeks to transform America from a free Republic, into a Marxist Collective!
“Let me tell you what I’m proposing. I’m proposing, one, if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk to sign with all of the good ideas or any of the good ideas that I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed. For anyone who sells more than five guns a year, they will be required to perform background checks on the people they sell them to. This will be the most comprehensive background check policy that has ever been had in our country thus far. I’m also prepared to say and to direct the ATF to remove and take away the licenses of gun dealers who fail to follow the law. “
Already, as Harris vows to take Americans guns, she is simultaneously pushing for incarcerated cannabis dealers to be freed from prison and given priority status to sell marijuana. The comments were made during an appearance at the ‘She The People‘ conference in Houston, Texas, where Kamala Harris said…
“[Many] of the people who historically were arrested for marijuana sales were young men, young men of color. Isn’t that the irony of it all? This is one of the fastest-growing money-making industries in our country and the very young men who were trying to make money doing the same thing got criminalized and now have been branded felons for life [and] are excluded from the economic opportunities that are now available because of this new industry.”
She went on to say that…
“They were ahead of the curve,” and they should be “first in line to get the jobs that are available.”
Harris went on to clearly state her position, as she said that she “strongly” believes that prohibition of marijuana is a failed policy and that it should be abolished, thereby making marijuana legal nationwide! Harris added…
“It has … contributed to the problem of mass incarceration in our country, and has led disproportionately to the criminalization of young black and brown men in this country.”
Interestingly, according to Marijuana Moment, Kamala Harris had bragged that during her tenure as California’s Attorney General, she…
“increased convictions of drug dealers from 56% in 2003 to 74% in 2006.”
Ironically, now that she is running on the Democrat ticket for President, and now that her base is pushing for the legalization of marijuana and the release and granting the right to vote for millions of convicted criminals, sexual predators, and drug dealers, so is Harris!
Sen. Harris also has a somewhat troubling habit of referring to the ongoing Drug War in the past tense — as if there weren’t still millions of drug-related felony convictions (including for cannabis) carried out each year in the U.S.
However, Harris was not the only Democrat who is calling for releasing drug dealers, and an end to the 2nd Amendment, as they fight for Marxist ideology! In fact, Breitbart reported…
On April 14, 2019, CNN’s Jake Tapper noted Swalwell’s plan to mandate buybacks of “assault weapons” and criminally prosecute those who do not comply. Tapper asked Swalwell if criminal prosecution means Americans who held on to their guns would go to jail. Swalwell responded, “They would.”
Swalwell added that gun owners would be given an “alternative” choice of placing keeping their guns at “a hunting club or a shooting range,” but either way, the guns would no longer be in their possession.
Also, the 2020 Candidate, Cory Booker is advancing the most extreme package of gun-control proposals! For example, the National Review reported…
In addition to the usual laundry list — “universal” background checks, a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” the prohibition of standard-capacity magazines — Booker hopes to establish not only a federal registry of guns, but a federal registry of gun owners, too. Under the terms of Booker’s plan, Americans wishing to exercise their Second Amendment rights would have to apply to Washington for permission — not just once, but every five years — and to inform the executive branch of each weapon they own in their home. Exit, Spartacus; enter, Big Brother. As Orwell might have said: He who controls the records, controls the people.
As anyone who has watched the Venezuelan government’s recent confiscation drive can attest, registries of guns and of the people who own them are dangerous and illiberal per se, which is one reason that they remain illegal under federal law. It should be spectacularly obvious that a registry of firearms and their owners is, in effect, a giant map that can be used by its keeper to locate who is armed and how, and, thus, to make their disarmament possible. If that sounds alarmist, look no further than to Senator Booker himself, who continues to argue that the government should use the “terror watch list” — that is, the sprawling, error-ridden list of mostly innocent people that the federal government keeps in secret — to disarm “suspicious” Americans who have been accused, charged, or convicted of no crimes whatsoever.
Therefore, while Democrats try to strip away Americans right to bear arms and protect themselves and their own friends and families, the Democrats are actively working to release convicted criminals, drug dealers, many of who are full-of-hate, embrace vile racism, are mentally unstable, and embrace violence and crime, rather than the ‘rule of law’! Combine that with the fact that those criminals, who ended up in jail don’t care about obtaining guns through licensed dealers or using background checks! Instead, they get them through the black market, much like they have obtained drugs illegally for decades!
Ultimately, Democrats like Beto O’Rourke, Kamala Harris, Eric Swalwell, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and even Joe Biden seek to end the Second Amendment for law-abiding citizens, regardless of the safest places in America being locations where concealed carry, is allowed, and the government doesn’t try to make gun or ammunition purchases difficult or impossible. Meanwhile, Harris and her fellow Democrats want to release millions of convicted criminals, including drug dealers onto the streets to have free-reign with our families, our children, and all while giving them “priority” for marijuana dealer licenses! Add on the fact that they want to strip law-abiding American citizens their right to bear arms and defend themselves, using terminology like ‘assault weapons’, ‘military-style weapons’, and ‘weapons of mass-murder’ to try and scare Americans into giving up their guns, despite those terms being blatant scare-tactics, distortions of the truth, and lies! Therefore, in the end, the Democrats don’t really care about the violence or victims! In fact, Democrats don’t even care about justice for criminals! Instead, they are pulling a play from the Communist playbook, as they seek to create chaos, divisions, and fear, in their effort to fundamentally transform America from the Constitutional Republic of our forefathers that promotes freedom and our ability to protect ourselves, our families, and our friends, into a Marxist based Fascist nation, designed to create a submissive class of the collective, that submits out of fear, due to the power that they have amassed, as well as, their leaving Americans with no way to defend themselves or fight back!
