O’Rourke stirs up civil war saying he will force the police to violate the Second Amendment
The US presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, Beto O'Rourke during his anti-gun campaign, said on Tuesday morning at MSNBC that he would send law enforcement to seize firearms from the law-abiding population.
This statement not only convicted the presidential candidate of the intention to go against the US Constitution, but made 90% of the police across the country turn against Beto O'Rourke. It is worth recalling that at the September debate, O'Rourke was reckless to drop the phrase “hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” and without making any conclusions, he continued to “get his way” further.
"Let's just assume there's a rancher in Texas that says ‘I'm not going to do this because this is an unjust law and it's unconstitutional.' What's the next step?" asked host Joe Scarborough. "I think that's what we need to concede because there will be people who don't turn their guns back in. What's the next step for the federal government there?"
"I think just as in any law that is not followed or flagrantly abused, there have to be consequences or else there is no respect for the law," O'Rourke said. "In that case, I think there would be a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm, to make sure it is purchased, bought back so that it cannot be potentially used against somebody else."
Many sheriffs immediately reacted to the controversial statement of the political appointee, stating that they “have sworn to protect the Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.””
As San Juan County, New Mexico Sheriff Shane Ferrari told townhall.com.
“The biggest fear of any free society is the government at your door wanting to take away your rights by force. I do not see the men and women of law enforcement sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution doing this,” Ferrari continued. “In an act of desperation, Mr. O’Rourke is shamefully using tragedies our country has experienced and fear for his political gain. The very foundation of law enforcement is public trust. Frankly, no one should trust a man who talks out of both sides of his mouth.”
Eddy County Sheriff Mark Cage from Louisiana stated that “bloodshed would be inevitable,” according to TheTruthAboutGuns.
“I’m not sure whether his statements are naive or just plain ignorant and arrogant. Maybe it’s all three,” said Sheriff Cage. “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.”
