Bob Frank O’Rourke is pushing hard on his “hell yes we’re going to take your guns” promise to stay relevant to democrat voters, in his futile quest to be President. As you would expect after that performance he put on in Houston, Beta is back on the network circuit piling on with his outlandish, threatening and illegal statement. To make matters worse Beta is gaslighting the country on what the Second Amendment actually means because apparently he knows the Founders true intentions better they did.
You cannot buyback something that was never yours to begin with using peoples own money to buy it back. Americans will follow the law, but not when it comes to dealing with TYRANTS, who are threatening to take illegally (gun confiscation/ “mandatory buyback” is direct 2A violation) take private citizens property (4A violation). There is nothing “Constitutionally sound” with what he is proposing, it is govt theft of the highest order. Shall not be infringed applies to all of the above including trying to use the Commerce Clause against it.
Also there are NO republican gun owners willing to hand over their guns as he suggests. They’re probably progressives who migrated to Texas from NY, CA, NJ or some other democrat stronghold the Left made unlivable even for their own.
This man is a fool demonstrating his lack of intelligence, so we’re not going to go on and on bashing him here, because why? Instead we’re going to get brutally honest and TRUTHFUL over what the Founders said and meant. So let’s cut to the chase, when Leftists say 2A was never intended for people to have access to nuclear weapons (yea we’re going there right now!) they’re categorically, demonstrably WRONG!
You have to put your mindset into the Founders and what was going on in their time. They got into a war with the biggest most powerful military in the entire world, partly over gun control! They had “assault weapons”/ “weapons of war” back then (aka pistols, muskets, semi-auto weapons (YEAH THEY DID!) cannons etc), that the British were trying to confiscate. After winning the war the Founders drew up the Constitution with the full intentions per THEIR WORDS for the people to be as well armed as the govt, so the people would not be in the same position they were in going into the Revolution. They wanted small govt, the people to live free, and politicians to have a limited PART-TIME role running the country, because the last thing they wanted was some bloated bureaucracy, a govt too big for itself where things could get out of control again (Yea we know look at the US today). Remember they just got done fighting a war the last thing they wanted was to have to go through that again thus the Second Amendment.
If the Founders were here today they would listen to the debate on guns and ask the Left:
“Does the govt have access to ‘assault weapons’, bazookas, cannons, tanks, fighter aircraft…. nuclear weapons?”
Left would have to answer “Yes”
Founders logical answer based on what they went through and intended when they created this country (per their words):
“If govt has these weapons then the people should have access to them as well!”
Again they wanted small limited govt, considered the people militia and wanted them as well armed as the govt they created because the People are the last Check [Checks and Balances] on govt outside of the 3 Branches they established in the Constitution.
Beta and the Left can bitch and moan, whine “No they didn’t”, but the Founders words are there for anyone to read to clearly see their full intentions…
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
– Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787
“A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves…and include, according to the past and general usuage of the states, all men capable of bearing arms… “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
– Richard Henry Lee, Federal Farmer No. 18, January 25, 1788
“I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.”
– George Mason, Address to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 4, 1788
“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”
– James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789
“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…”
– George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790
“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
– Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

There are MANY civilians in possession of military weapons/ weapons of war. If you have the resources, money and clean background you too can have a machine gun up to and including a M134 minigun, various sized cannons & mortars, and other weapons. If you’re filthy rich you can have a decommissioned fighter jet, tank, armored personnel carrier etc! Beto is just plain wrong and without a shred of a clue.
No one is taking anyones guns because that will spark off a Second Civil War in this country faster than any other hot issue in this country. Democrats you want to go down this road, fine go for it but just remember you the people who hate guns, can’t stand the sight of them and don’t know which bathroom to use, are picking a fight with the people who have been buying guns at record levels since obama took office, stockpiling ammo and training with the very weapons you want to take!
