BETO’S PLAN: O’Rourke Ready to Send ‘Law Enforcement’ to Confiscate Some Firearms

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.16.19

Failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke doubled-down on his mandatory gun confiscation proposal this week; saying he would be prepared to send “law enforcement” to recover specific firearms from US citizens.

“There will be people that don’t turn the guns back in. What’s the next step?” asked MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’


“In any law that isn’t followed, there have to be consequences… In that case there would be a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm,” said Beto.

Sen. Cory Booker made similar comments earlier this month; saying the country needs a “mandatory buyback” program.

“Mandatory buyback or voluntary buyback?” asked the MSNBC moderator.

“This is another thing, to me, that’s just absurd… We’re talking about assault rifles. The overwhelming majority of Americans, over 75%, does not believe we should have weapons of war on our streets,” said Booker.

“You have a mandatory buyback program,” he added.

AOC vs. PETE: Ocasio-Cortez Rips Buttigieg, Says Mayor ‘Protecting Era of Big Money’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.15.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called-out South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg Monday night; accusing the Democratic presidential hopeful of “protecting” the “era of big money.”


“Small-dollar grassroots campaigns, aka what Buttegieg insults here as ‘pocket change,’ out-fundraise him by millions. Our nation’s leaders should be working to end the era of big money politics, not protect it. & Beto’s gun policy isn’t ‘picking a fight,’ it’s taking a stand,” posted AOC on social media.

Sen. Cory Booker made similar comments earlier this week; accusing Buttigieg of defending the National Rifle Association.

“Calling buyback programs ‘confiscation’ is doing the NRA’s work for them, @PeteButtigieg—and they don’t need our help,” posted Booker on social media.

Both Booker and O’Rourke support a mandatory gun confiscation policy.

BETO GRILLED: Woman Confronts O’Rourke at Campaign Event, Says ‘Hell No’ He’s Not Taking Her Guns

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.20.19

Beto O’Rourke found himself in the hot-seat during a campaign stop this week when a local woman pressed the politician over his pledge to “confiscate” certain firearms; telling the presidential hopeful “Hell No” he can’t take her guns.

“I am here to say, ‘Hell no, you’re not.’ With that, I’d like to know how you intend to legislate evil. Because it’s not the gun, it’s the heart of man that does that. We all have these stories; we all have experiences,” said the unidentified woman.

“I want to know how you intend to legislate the hearts of men and leave fellow citizens like myself defenseless,” she added.

While Beto frequently calls for the confiscation of certain weapons on the campaign trail, he’s also urged the creation of massive new government programs.

O’Rourke added to the list of rights -like Freedom of Speech and Religion- enjoyed by all Americans earlier this month; saying workers have “the right” to live close to their employment.

“Here’s a tough thing to talk about though we must. Rich people are going to have to allow — or be forced to allow — lower income people to live near them. Which is what we fail to do in this country right now. We force lower income working Americans to drive 1, 2, 3 hours in either direction to get to their jobs. Very often minimum wage jobs that they’re working 2 or 3 of them right now. What if, as we propose to do, we invested in housing that was closer to where you work. Very often mixed income housing meaning the very wealthiest are living next to those who are not the very wealthiest in this country,” said O’Rourke on the campaign trail.
