Robert O’Rourke, Democratic candidate for president, has been pushing far-left plans to stay in the race. The Texas Democrat’s biggest goal, it seems, is to erode your Second Amendment rights. He has been saying for months that if he became president, he’ll confiscate your firearms. Now, a sheriff from New Mexico has some news for “Beto.” His deputies will not do it.
Why is Rober O’Rourke still running for president? Clearly, his chances at success are slim. He’s polling so badly, he can’t even make it to the debates. The Democrat has resorted to pushing far-left ideas just so that people will keep talking about him.
He burned plenty of bridges when he said he would punish churches and religious groups if they didn’t bow to his LBGT agenda. That made even Muslim Americans mad—since he admitted he’ll punish them too!
O’Rourke continues to promise to confiscate your guns, specifically your AR-15’s if he was elected president. Crazy, for a man from Texas. You’d think a former Texas representative would stay quiet about gun rights. He can’t even get support from his home state with that kind of talk.
He claims his confiscation scheme would be a “buyback.” Yeah right. Sorry, Beto, but we didn’t buy our firearms from the government. What you are proposing is a violation of our Second Amendment rights.
O’Rourke claimed that America’s police sheriffs would aid him in stealing our weapons. But one sheriff from New Mexico let O’Rourke know what he thought.
Sheriff Mark Cage of Eddy County, New Mexico, indicates his deputies will not serve in the anti-gun, “personal Gestapo,” Robert “Beto” O’Rourke talks about sending around to confiscate guns.
O’Rourke has been clear in his support for a “mandatory,” government-enforced buyback of all AR-15 and AK-47 rifles. And he has been equally clear on his plans to send law enforcement personal to the homes of those who refuse to hand over their rifles…
Sheriff Mark Gage is not in line with O’Rourke’s plan. In fact, Townhall quoted Cage saying, “I’m not sure whether his statements are naive or just plain ignorant and arrogant. Maybe it’s all three.”
Cage continued, “The thought of anyone utilizing my sheriff’s office or any other law enforcement agency in this country as their personal Gestapo to go door to door violating citizen’s rights is disgusting, unrealistic and downright un-American.” [Source: Breitbart]
What O’Rourke wants to do to gun-owning Americans is right out of the playbook of Stalin and other dictators. Every tyrant who has ruled has first used the police to forcibly take citizens’ weapons. That way, when they went on to grab more power and control, the people were defenseless.
O’Rourke wants to do this so that there would be no opposition when he tries to close down churches, raise taxes, and impose more government-controlled restrictions. We’d be defenseless when O’Rourke opens the borders, letting all kinds of criminals into our country.
And if you think it’s only Beto who wants to do this, think again. Every last 2020 Democrat is watching O’Rourke, taking notes. If by some miracle one of them is elected, they’ll roll out much the same gun-grabbing plan. It’s necessary, if they are to succeed in their other goals.
But at least one American sheriff is saying no. He won’t let his deputies be used by the government to strip away our freedoms. The Second Amendment exists to back up all our other rights. That’s why it’s the first one targetted by power-hungry Democrats. If it goes, so do all the others.
O’Rourke will never become president, that’s for sure. But the rest of the left is eager to do the same thing to Americans. Sheriff Cage is willing to stand up to their toxic, dangerous agenda to make sure Americans’ rights are not violated.
And something tells me he’s not the only sheriff in the country who will do it.
