    "National law enforcement organizations harshly criticized Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke's plan to send police officers to collect AR-15s and AK-47s from those who refuse to turn them in under his mandatory buyback scheme.

    In interviews with the Washington Free Beacon, leaders from groups representing hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers described Beto's gun confiscation plan as "ridiculous," "asinine," and likely unconstitutional."

    I have neither the desire nor the legal authority to enforce federal law. Robert Francis is clueless.

    He definitely made his own bed. There's no turning back from what he's said.

    Beto is pretty much a representation of every low information millenial commie. A reflection of the education system in general.

    Screw borders. Screw isis. Screw voter fraud. The liberal education system is destroying America much faster. Cleaning it out should be the priority.

    My priorities have changed a bit since I started a family, but I've said it since I've been old enough to realize the political situation in this country and fundamentally nothing has changed. (Which is roughly the point when I got out of the Army at 22.)

    "If it's time to bury them, it's time to use them."

    God forbid any kind of overt gun grabbing, confiscation were to start. But if it does..I assure you.. this country just isn't ready for that. That starts with any jack boots going in first, and ends with the lemmings sucking down social media 10 hours per day. Too much blood on too many hands.

    I guess if Robert Francis O'Rourke wants to make this happen, he'll also have to form the "Civilian National Security Force" ( :headscratch: ) that Obama once talked about...

    Red Guards, anyone...?

    It's amazing, the difference between law enforcement attitudes in different parts of the country. I have had off-duty NYS troopers in the bar I work at say they look forward to the day they can take assault rifles from people, and God help anyone who refuses.

    Those troopers need to study up on the Constitution and the events and concerns that led to its adoption.

    Does any of this really matter?
    Wouldn't Francis have to be elected to something before anything he says has meaning?

    People need to just stop acknowledging him when he says anything, or he is never going to shut up.

    Do you really think they give a damn about the Constitution? We have a very pro-2nd Amendment county judge who is facing mandatory retirement at age 70. The county DA is running for his position, and is very vocal in his anti-gun ownership stand. Not just the scary looking black rifles, but guns of all kinds. He is facing opposition from a little known town judge, a Democrat, who is pro-2nd Amendment and believes in issuing CCW to all who qualify. You can guess who the NYS Police have endorsed.

    Wow, that's nuts. They do understand math, right? It's not like every citizen will fight this (most wouldn't), but there are almost 5,000 people per state trooper in New York state. In a 50,000 seat baseball stadium, full of people, that would equal TEN state troopers. All it takes is one incident, where someone gets killed trying to resist handing over their weapons, and things could spiral out of control very quickly.

    I hope it never gets to that point.
