Beto & Democrats Going All-In on Gun Confiscation

Beto O’Rourke Hell Yes We Wil Take Your Guns

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Democrat Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke continues to struggle to gain any sort of traction for his campaign. With some polls putting him in 10th place, and his average sitting around 7th, some might say that it is desperation time for the candidate who was once a darling with the far left and the legacy media while he was running his losing campaign to unseat U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).

recent tweet from O’Rourke is just one clue that the candidate is, indeed, becoming desperate.

The former U.S. Representative from Texas called on banks and credit card companies to help promote gun control by refusing to do business with companies that produce legal products, and refusing to process legal financial transactions.

As has often been the case with Beto’s campaign, he seems to try to be provocative by rehashing old ideas.

Some banking institutions, with the urging of anti-gun extremists, have already adjusted their practices to accommodate those, like O’Rourke, who stand opposed to the Second Amendment. While this subject has been part of the anti-gun crusade for some time, it has been met with strong opposition, and others have questioned how credit card companies could stop processing certain, specific transactions without actually ceasing doing any business with companies that allow the targeted transactions, as well as others not targeted.

Beto’s most puzzling demand is that banks and credit card companies “(s)top processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks.” As a presidential candidate, and former U.S. Representative, O’Rourke should be aware that ALL firearm transfers through licensed gun dealers—whether they be at a brick-and-mortar store, at a gun show, or over the Internet—are required, by law, to be run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Of course, he knows this, but his tweet is intended to create confusion on the issue, as well as create the impression that he is proposing to address specific problems, even though they simply do not exist.

Rehashing an old anti-gun campaign isn’t his only sign of desperation, though.

On September 12th, 2019, during the third debate of Democrat Presidential candidates, he tried to be even more provocative.

When asked if he supported confiscation of certain semi-automatic firearms, Beto stated, “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK47….”

And just to prove he was serious, his campaign started selling t-shirts.

Thankfully, he didn’t go so far as one former candidate who also proposed confiscation, but also made what many considered to be a rather ominous threat.

So far, Beto has tried being folksy, posting videos of him at the dentist, getting his hair cut, flipping burgers, and changing a tire. That hasn’t been successful in getting his polling numbers out of the low single digits.

Now he’s selling profanity and trying to prove he’s the most anti-gun candidate in the field in trying to lure support from Democrats in his Quixotic quest to be President.

A far cry from when he faced only the Texas electorate, and assured lawful gun owners they could keep their firearms. If these tactics don’t work, which they likely won’t, can we expect O’Rourke to dive even deeper into the anti-gun end of the pool, and start promoting the repeal of the Second Amendment?

As we often say, stay tuned!

For God sakes! Can anyone reading these articles fail to recognize that each and every one of our politicians are slightly to maximally mentally incompetent! How about the states that have red flag laws, someone turn in each and every politician to the courts and police (State and local) for being mentally ill and could be dangerous to the American way of life in extending the possibility of a Civil War II (potentially millions of socialist could die). What would they do? Would be a BIG shake up, no matter what happens!!!! Keep your cell phone voice and video recorders… Read more »

As far as i know when one buys a gun at a gun show the background check is done as if one buys from a store. So what is this moron talking about? private sales usually are done with cash. not only is he trying to control what a free American buys he wants to control how we pay, where will it stop. We have to understand not only is Moron O’Rourke spouting this anti 2nd rhetoric but all the Dems are also. As far as that tee shirt that seems to threaten law abiding folks with AR and AK… Read more »

Beeto is the DUMBEST ‘TARD IMAGINABLE!

Sure thing, Beeto. Cut off the cards, and force all guns into CASH SALES. For a guy who wants to register our guns, he sure is going all out to drive sales underground!

Hey, I’m all for it!

Perhaps another enterprising person or company could sell a different Tee-shirt, in response to Betoboy’s ridiculous antics. The “opposition” tee-shirt might say something similar to…

“LIKE HELL, you’ll take MY AR-15!”

Just a thought…

I’m curious just how Beto’s rallying cry of “take their guns” and “refuse to do business with” is any different from the old South’s practice of doing likewise to blacks? Or Nazi Germany’s practice of doing so to Jews?

Obviously Robert is concerned about guns in our society so how about we conduct a little experiment. How about all the protection details for all the “Public” servants go unarmed for a year and let’s see how he and the others feel about it then?

Umm, I have to wonder if O’Rourke understands that cash would work just as well to buy a legal AR-15 from a dealer too? Imagine if a gun shop installed an ATM Machine next to the register so a buyer could use their credit card to get cash anyway.
