No Bueno, Beto: Americans Won’t Comply With Your Gun Ban

First of all, what does he mean when he talks about working with people to come up with “the best possible solution”? He’s already out there with what he says is the best possible solution: banning semi-automatic long guns (and most likely some handguns as well) and demanding that those who currently legally possess those firearms turn them into the government for some cash. That’s the plan. There’s not a lot of wiggle room, unless you want to talk about how much money you’re going to give, whether state or local law enforcement will take part in the compensated confiscations, and other details. I hate to break it to Beto, but none of those details will make much of a difference in compliance among most Americans.

We have a long history in this country of civil disobedience to laws we consider unjust; from the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798, the Fugitive Slave Act in the 1850s, Prohibition in the 1920s, the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s, to more recent examples like states legalizing cannabis in violation of federal law. Specifically when it comes to firearms, in just the past few years we’ve seen massive non-compliance with New Jersey’s magazine ban, New York State’s SAFE Act, and the so-called “assault weapons ban” in Boulder, Colorado. So why would Beto O’Rourke imagine that Americans would comply with a law that turns them into criminals for continuing to possess something they legally possess today?

First off, if Beto actually managed to enact his proposed law, it would face an immediate court challenge, which would likely take several years for the courts to resolve. It’s doubtful that many gun owners would hand over their firearms to the federal government while that court challenge is being resolved, but even if the Supreme Court upheld Beto’s ban, compliance would likely be few and far between. Beto’s ban is simply largely unenforceable, at least proactively, without a massive expansion of law enforcement powers, and while the Left loves itself some gun control, it also has major issues with law enforcement these days. So, Beto is left with platitudes.

That's the irony. The Dems in this scenario would depend on the very LEO's and likely military that they tend to dismiss and trash, if not outright spit on.

Not to mention for example my county of around 35K people and 15K households, we have I think if you count all the city and county cops, maybe 50 bodies to do that task.

Not that anyone is going to embark on that quixotic queeg quest anyway.

Two questions, where will they store all those firearms and who will guard them?
second what will they do with people that own 3D printers or that have machine shop experience and can build firearms?

That kind of machinery will be seized and destroyed with no compensation to the owner.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here is what they are really after folks:

"... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any
government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one MAKES them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
......just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

They will do what all dictatorships do with the weapons they confiscate. They will redistribute them to sanctioned government officials. The new Brownshirts (Antifa), IRS, Homeland Security, Bureau of Land Management, and a new Government run Police Force, which they will establish to replace all local and State Police. That last item has already been discussed under Holder/Obama. So, the government will confiscate weapons and then use those same weapons against the people from whom they were confiscated. Irony at its worst.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Rock N Roll Party In The Streets

I know, you know this ain't gonna last forever
Let's take advantage while we still can
I'm sure that you'll find the days couldn't get any longer
Day after day it's gettin' old fast

Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets
Get all the boys together have them tell everybody that they meet
Friday night at midnight we're all gonna get what we need
Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets

You know, I know we ain't gonna show no mercy
To anyone that tries to get in our way
I'm sure that you'll find we got to put the word out for certain
Once the party gets started we're all here to stay

Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets
Get all the boys together have them tell everybody that they meet
Friday night at midnight we're all gonna get what we need
Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets

This idiot actually thinks we're just gonna smile and happily give our guns over to the Federal government.   :silly:

This idiot also thinks that he's going to be the Prez!
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page
