Beto Demands Violence Monopoly at School where Government Shot Student Protesters

Beto convinces starry-eyed, logic-impaired students that government shooting unarmed students is why the government should control the guns (Beto O’Rourke/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -( “Yesterday, people brought assault weapons to our rally at Kent State—where 4 students were shot dead in 1970,” Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke tweeted Thursday. “I told them nobody should show up with an AK-47 or an AR-15 to seek to intimidate us in our own democracy. We need to buy back every single one of them.”

Let’s break his complaints down in the order he presents them.

It’s true. No matter how hard KSU administrators try to weasel-word that “it is the policy of the university to prohibit the possession, storage, or use of a deadly weapon in certain circumstances on university property,” the “out” for visitors is “unless otherwise permitted by state law.”

Ohio law allows “officials” to impose total infringements on students and employees and against concealed-carry if so dictated by a college’s board of trustees. But open carry by visitors on “public property” is “legal,” creating an unequal protection situation that should rightly be considered intolerable.

I observed and reported on Liberty Hangout’s Kent State open-carry walk a year ago, and unsurprisingly, armed protestors there to champion the right of the people to keep and bear arms conducted themselves peaceably and invited “reasoned discourse.”  Those who made that impossible by physically blocking the progress of the march, screaming insults to include sexual and homophobic put-downs and overt racism, and by threatening and committing acts of violence requiring multiple arrests, were all on the side of citizen disarmament and a government “monopoly of violence.” That’s curious considering some self-identified as Antifa, which fraudulently represents itself as being “anarchist” instead of totalitarian.

That brings us back to Beto, and his “brilliant” observation about the four students shot dead. Four unarmed students. By government troops.

That’s a hell of a way to make your point that only the government should be armed.

As with the earlier open carry walk, leave it to a professional liar to accuse Bill of Rights advocates of being there to intimidate, although they were there to make a point of defiance. But that’s only after a man who would be president emphasized his intent to ignore the “supreme Law of the Land” and use that government monopoly to bend them to his will and strip them of their birthrights. And as for the ubiquitous reference to “our democracy” collectivist poltroons like Beto invariably fall back on, we’ve seen what can happen when a majority unrestrained by unalienable individual rights decides what to have for dinner.

Beto’s “buying back” threat presupposes the guns were his in the first place, and that the transfer was made with a mutually agreed-upon reclamation clause. In the absence of that, refusal to play along will result in that monopoly of violence being deployed again, and those the shock troops don’t kill, as they did at Kent State, will be imprisoned and have their lives destroyed, as was done to Wayne Fincher.

As an aside, this really doesn’t fit the flow here but it is an opportunity for more gun owners to learn about another piece of Beto-related hypocrisy. These lottery-winning useful idiot stage props, who wantonly violate “gun laws” every episode of “Stupornatural,” really ought to hear from more viewers about what dolts they are without a script.

Does it strike anyone else as cognitively dissonant that, for a supposed “progressive man of the people,” Beto and his ilk utterly reject what the Founders knew to be the ultimate egalitarian power-sharing arrangement? And that brings us to another offensive and absurd claim that tells us all we need to know about how budding tyrant wannabes like him will try to wield real power should they ever swindle their way into it:

This fool fits 20 pounds of stupid in a 5-pound bag every time he opens his mouth.


Too much fluoride? To low of testosterone? Maybe drug use during college? SOMETHING has damaged Beto the fake Mexican’s BRAIN. I mean it seems to me and anyone else with the ability to reason that he may be showing the signs of early Alzheimer’s onset. SERIOUSLY??? This guy needs to be Red Flagged. Make sure that even his body guards are disarmed just in case he tries to get hold of one of their guns. He is surely disturbed.

Libtardation is what’s wrong with him and every other commiecrat out there. It is a contagious degenerative mental disease.


The discussion sure got heated and name calling became the focal point. To me the focal point was when O’rourke the dork used the word “our democracy” to describe this country. He is telling us right out front that he is all for a communist regime and not the Constitutional Republic we live in. Do him a favor and deport him to a country that fits his ideals.

Will Flatt

We need to deport all the commiecrats, not just this one. Hans-Hermann Hoppe is right; the answer is physical removal! That is the only way to save our REPUBLIC!

Will Flatt

No need for bags, just helicopters. Free helicopter rides good for 1/2 trip for all of the leaders and traitors. The rest can beat their feet outta here, there are lots of socialist countries out there to choose from. They can pick their workers’ paradise and move there.

Will Flatt

I’ve BEEN ready… I’m just waiting on everyone else to catch up!! We gotta be united and we gotta be on the same page!


Pandering to the uninformed youth is his style. He’s hoping that the shootings during the Viet Nam war protest were forgotten. He may not even be aware.


In 2018, when he was trying to win the State of Texas, Beatoff O’Rourkee said, “If you Purchased that A R Fifteen, If You Own It, KEEP IT.” Beatoff O’Rourkee is a Typical Lying Politician. During the last Presidential Debate, HE SAID: “Hell YES, We’re Going To TAKE Your A R Fifteen and A K Forty seven.”

Will Flatt

Hey Beta O’Dork: This is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, NOT A DEMOCRACY, you dumbazz!!!


Beto is an antagonist trying to sell students who would most likely never be able relate to that time in history. This idiot would have students who are already dumbed down vote for communist politicians to take away weapons from its citizens so only the government would have them. What could possibly go wrong?

Absolutely correct as the PEOPLE created the governments and governments exist because the PEOPLE allow it.
Americans have the Constitutional Right & Duty to control government by force if necessary.
READ the Federalist Papers.


Why all the discussion about Francis? He’s never going to win the nomination anyway…
He’s the barking dog behind the fence that can’t get out.


Unfortunate BETO has not read a history book,, the National Guard did not use an AR-15 or M-16 rifle.
The Guard used M1 Garands, M1911 pistols and 12ga shotguns to fire into the unarmed students protesting the Vietnam war, four dead nine wounded with one left paralyzed for life.


You have been lied to. The students at Kent were demanding a communist America.
There were tables extolling the greatness of communism and communist leaflets all over the grounds, there. “protesting the Viet Nam war” was the lie the media told.
It was about brainwashed moron students demanding a communist America.
Unarmed or not, when a person threatens to kill a soldier, that soldier has every right to stop them. I feel YOU were not there.


He’s attempting to move the ” Overton window” on gun control.

Get Out

What would O’Rourke’s course of action be when millions of gun owners don’t comply to “sell” their AR-15’s and AK47’s to him? Would he send in troops to confiscate them by force putting entire neighborhoods in danger when resistance is met? All of these anti-gun politicians that expect people to just roll over and give up their 2A rights haven’t thought it through. O’Rourke got schooled firsthand that people will not readily give up their guns when Lauren Boebert challenged O’Rourke’s gun confiscation plan at a town hall last week. IMOA, all of these anti-gun politicians rhetoric will cause another… Read more »


At Kent State in 1970, the communist students had taken over the Dean’s office and were beating the non-communist students. The Guard soldiers came with loaded M1 Garands. All over the grounds were pro-communism leaflets. Suddenly, two shots ring out, no one knows where they came from but the Guard Soldiers claim they came from the trees to their left, like snipers. The Guard Soldiers opened up on the pro-communist protesters. We saw Americans killed in Watts, again, with communist leaflets all over the place and promises of cash. GO TO ANY COLLEGE Student Union and you will find dozens… Read more »


I wish people would quit beating a dead horse about the poor little protesters at Kent State..they got what they deserved..they were violent and destructive protesters..good damn riddance to them..hell got extra logs on the fire..

J Gibbons

That really isn’t the point of the article. The point is the hypocrisy of using the Kent State event (which Demo-communists abhor) as an example of why only the government should have firearms. Robert Francis’ logic (everyone needs to quit using his adopted name as he isn’t really Hispanic) is so beyond reason that it proves there are no “common sense” solutions when one side of the debate has no logical sense.


My problem is they keep acting like dirtbags are heroes.. the people at Kent State are not Heroes! Im tired of hearing I should be concerned about draft dodging unpatriotic dirtbags getting killed for acting like hoodlums.. I prefer to think about the poor souls that never come back from Vietnam and how they treated them like shit..


They just aren’t YOUR heroes. Were you even alive in 1970? Those kids were murdered.


And…just imagine the same poorly trained Natl. Guardsmen being sent out by O’Rourke to confiscate AR15 and AK47 rifles. Difference: Some of those people just might shoot back. Waco in every city?

Don’t know about 24and7, but I was alive in 1970…had been back from Vietnam for two years.


Poorly trained National Gaurdsman eh..who do you think is being rotated into Afghanistan and Iraq.. you are just another liberal douche that doesn’t have a clue what the military does..


You keep using that word, maybe you don’t know what it means?

“a : marked by generosity : openhanded a liberal giver

b : given or provided in a generous and openhanded way a liberal meal

c : ample, full

d: broad-minded especially : not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms “


@ Browserb46 They will probably send their new citizens, the illegal immigrants, to confiscate. Afterall, these illegals are dependant on them.


If they’re your heroes they are obviously the good kind of hero..the DEAD KIND..


I was live then. I watched that murder on the TeeVee when it happened. I was outraged that armd government troops opened fire on a bunch of stupid rowdy kids… they posed no real threat to anyone. Nowhere near as much of a threat as did the group of 80 or so souls who were under seige in a “compound” outside of Waco Texas. Those folks DID have guns, plenty of them, and the fodder with which to feed them. But they posed no threat to anyone other than the twisted “values” of Janet Reno and her dutiful underlings.

T – I tried to make the point the majority of students attending the rally on the Commons were curious and not protesting. The protestors were agent provocateurs and some of the SDS organization. Some foolish students got caught up in the frenzy but the majority were standing around to see what would happen next. At one point tear gas was shot at those standing around but by this time the agents had left. The guardsmen were mostly under 25 and had just come off a post in Youngstown, OH after an uprising of a strike of sorts. They had… Read more »


They were demanding a communism America. The terrorist protesters threatened to kill the Guard Soldiers.
All over the ground were communist leaflets.
When 2 shots rang out from the woods to the left of the Guard Soldiers, they shot those communist democrats students advancing on them.
So, Frank, I doubt you were there and I doubt you knew it was the communists that had taken over the Dean’s office and the Student Union. IF those communist students were shot, they deserved it by their attacking the Guard Soldiers.


I prefer to think that EVERYONE should have protested the Vietnam war. Especially knowing today that it was started on false pretenses. It isn’t UNPATRIOTIC to DODGE an ILLEGAL draft for an ILLEGAL war. Did CONGRESS declare a war? NO? Then people like you are the dirt bags. I feel for those who never came back, but they had a choice. They could have said stick it to the government like these BRAVE souls did. I can’t believe I share the same planet with people like you.


You are sharing the suicide is your only it now..walk into the light quickly..


THAT is over the top, Dick.


Your are an a$$hole. You are clueless as to what happened. I was a freshman at Kent that year and knew one of the students killed. I was observing that day as were the majority of students. The violence was carried out by CIA provocateurs planted a few days beforehand. I know because I had an unpublished manuscript written by a Kent State professor who had government documents, FOIA’s and more showing and naming them. He died of a very rare from of cancer as did his wife 1 year exactly to the day of his demise from the same… Read more »


I know this if they would have had their dumb asses in class, THEY WOULD BE ALIVE!!.. it’s probably dirtbags like you and your hippie friends that treated my father like shit! Because he was over there fighting so you and your dirtbag hippie buddies wouldn’t have to!! My father answered the call.. So I reiterate good riddance to bad rubbish!


In the words of Truth, you are an asshole. Enjoy your nasty little life.


Come and say that to my face keyboard commando..liberal poontang commie..


Post your address, nut job.


You are pitiful. “he was over their fighting so you and your dirt bag hipped buddies wouldn’t have to!! “My father answered the call”. State worshiping mentally disturbed boot licking tyranny supporting fool. NO ONE HAD TO GO FIGHT OVER THERE. They should have SHOT those who were trying to force them. Utilized the 2nd amendment for its PURPOSE. GOD save me from people like this.


Jesus, read some history.


So, where you THERE? Did you see what went on in REALITY? Did you ever make any effort to find out that there were supposedly firecrackers that someone set off and that scared the poor defenseless National Guard to open fire on unarmed protesters? Your statement shows lack of empathy and surely is a sign of a psychopathic personality. Now be sure to go turn your guns in because I’m not feeling safe in a society where people like you are allowed to walk around free. There is NEVER a reason to kill unarmed people. PERIOD.




Makes ya wonder what he really said.
So much disinformation here.
