Beto O’Rourke: We’ll Use Fines to ‘Compel’ Compliance with AR-15 Ban

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Robert “Beto” O’Rourke explained he plans to use fines to “compel” American gun owners to comply with his AR-15 ban, during a weekend exchange with reporters.

O’Rourke made his claim in a video posted by Fox4 DFW’s Teresa Riley. 

He was asked how he plans to make Americans comply with his AR-15 ban and he said, “I begin by saying we expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If they do not there would be a fine imposed to compel them to follow the law.”

O’Rourke went to talk about the example of Australia, citing how that country put in place a similar ban. He claimed Australia witnessed, “a near 50 percent reduction in gun violence deaths” as a result. But O’Rourke did not mention that rifles are not a statistically significant contributor to overall gun deaths in the U.S.

In fact, FBI crime stats for 2017 show there were 403 rifle-related deaths for the year, and those deaths were from all kinds of rifles combined–breech action, pump action, bolt action, lever action, semiautomatic, etc. Crossing the street resulted in over 5,800 deaths in 2017.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation reports there are 16 million-plus privately owned AR-15s in the U.S.

    Exactly why are people having conversations about our unalienable rights?

    There can be no debate.

    There can be no discussion.

    There can be no compromise.

    Our rights are either sacrosanct and above government and its servants or we live under abject tyranny. No two ways about it.

    Oh, and Beto-homo boy….you may wish to consider the possibility that we are not Australians…! and as I have said in the past, you are operating with malice-aforethought and you are operating openly in treason.

    Why has this criminal not been arrested yet for advocating the overthrow of our form of government; government at no level has any authority to make any laws that restrict any of our rights.

    Beta proves yet again his is stupider than a bag of hammers. Just because you pass an illegal law anathema to the Bill of Rights doesn’t mean we are going to follow you simpering fool.

    “I begin by saying we expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If they do not there would be a fine imposed to compel them to follow the law.”

    The usual stupidly worded treason.

    A fine does not ‘compel’ anything Bozo Beto.

    All it does is fatten YOUR pockets.

    And American nationals SPIT on your UNLAWFUL ‘laws’ (POLICIES!), b#tch!
