Beto tells us what guns we’ll have to sell to the government if he gets elected to the White House

In mid-August Democrat Robert Frances “Beto” O’Rourke called for a gun licensing and a mandatory buyback program for so-called “assault weapons,” an euphemism that refers to guns liberals find scary.  He also advocated a “voluntary” buyback for handguns.  Over the weekend, however, he told us exactly which guns he would require us al to sell to the federal government.

“A reporter asked Beto in Charlottesville how he’d reassure people afraid the gov’t would take their assault weapons away,” Buzzfeed’s Molly Hensley-Clancy said on Twitter.

“’I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do,’ he said. If you own an AK-47 or AR-15, ‘you’ll have to sell them to the government.’”

You heard that right.  If Beto were to be elected, and there’s very little chance of that happening, he would act like a dictator and force Americans to sell certain firearms to the government.

He confirmed his position on Twitter:

Dana Loesch had a very good question for Beto:

No doubt, he intends to use armed federal agents.  But what if people don’t want to give up their weapons?


Pretty much.  That’s generally how dictators and tyrants work.

He could always borrow a page from Eric Swalwell’s book and threaten the use of nuclear weapons.

It would seem that Beto dreams of an America where the president can force citizens to do what he wants at gunpoint.  Maybe he imagines himself to be a modern-day Stalin or Hitler.

In short, as this Twitter user said, he wants to be president by revoking constitutional rights.  After all, he’s already said he doesn’t “give a s**t” about the Second Amendment.

Imagine what he would do to the First Amendment?  Or any other freedom enumerated by the Constitution?  After all, this is the party that wants to do away with the Electoral College.
