Beto: Law-Abiding Citizens Who Don’t Turn Over Their Guns Will Face ‘Consequences’

Beto O’Rourke claims that under his presidency, Americans who don’t comply with his gun control policies – including confiscation – will face “consequences” from law enforcement.

O’Rourke made the comments during Tuesday evening’s Democratic debate, then reiterated the essence during an interview with “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked the Texas Democrat how he envisioned his plan to implement mandatory buybacks of firearms he deems dangerous and unnecessary. He responded by suggesting everybody would simply follow the law.

“I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same way we enforce any provision, any law that we have right now, we don’t go door to door to do anything to enforce the law,” O’Rourke said. “I expect Republicans, Democrats, gun owners, non-gun owners alike, to follow the law.”

There’s a lot to unpack there. First, why non-gun owners would follow a gun buyback program is anybody’s guess and probably only make sense in Beto’s little head. Second, you simply expect criminals, who likely obtained their weapons illegally, to just hand them over because some goofy liberal told them to? Good luck with that, Chief.

There Will Be Consequences

Cooper pressed Beto on his naivety, questioning what the Democrat planned to do for those Americans who refuse to abandon their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

O’Rourke suggested there’d be “consequences” from law enforcement, completing the process that would turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.

“If someone does not turn an AR-15 or an AK-47, one of these weapons of war, or brings it out in public and brandishes it, in an attempt to intimidate … then that weapon will be taken from them. If they persist, there will be other consequences from law enforcement,” he insisted.

O’Rourke’s threats hold all the enforcement heft of the high school principal in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. He wants people to believe he’s a tough, no-nonsense man of action, when in reality we’ve all seen his live-streamed dental cleanings.

Robert Francis Will Send Law Enforcement to Your Door

In a follow-up interview with Scarborough, O’Rourke, who just hours ago had said, “we don’t go door to door to do anything to enforce the law,” revealed he would, in fact, go door to door.

“Yeah, I think just as in any law that is not followed or flagrantly abused, there have to be consequences or else there is no respect for the law,” O’Rourke explained. “So you know, in that case, I think there would be a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm and to make sure that it is purchased, bought back so that it cannot be potentially used against somebody else.”

Perhaps Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain said it best when he told Beto, “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.”

O’Rourke’s flailing attempts to make himself relevant by latching onto the gun confiscation plan is netting him very little approval amongst the American people.

Thus far, the only praise he’s received for such a wild anti-American stance against American gun owners has seemingly come from the equally mentally stunted Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“Beto’s gun policy isn’t ‘picking a fight,'” she wrote. “It’s taking a stand.”

It’s time Beto took a seat and bowed out of his fantasyland bid for the White House. No self-respecting, gun-owning Americans would ever allow the government to take away their rights, even with the hollow threat of “consequences” from these clowns.
