No more, “I support the Second Amendment, BUT...”
While making an obligatory stop in Charlottesville to prove his anti-white bonafides to the Democratic voting base, who believes anything white and especially male is a pejorative, that he as self-loathing white person can still be their man... sorry, cis-male he/him pronouns, Beto the Furry also weighed in on gun control.
A reporter asked, “How do you address the fears of the government is going to take away assault rifles, if you are talking about buy backs and banning?”
Beto the Furry responded, “So I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Americans who own AR15s, AK47s, will have to sell them to the government. We’re not going to allow them to stay on our streets, to show up in our communities, to be used against us in our synagogues, our churches, our mosques, our Walmarts, our public places.”
Of course he feels comfortable saying this because he won’t be first in the stack - that’s the thin blue line’s job, to enforce gun control. But I offer Beto the Furry the same offer I gave to Eric the Twat Swalwell: if he will personally show up at my door to buy my AR15 against my will and consent, under threat of government kidnapping or murder for not voluntarily complying, I’ll gladly give it to him.
I, for one, am happy about this straight forward approach. No more beating around the bush, “I support the Second Amendment, BUT...” crap - tell the people what you want to do. It’s refreshing, really.
I also hope he succeeds. I want to get this over with. The only political solution to this is to ban and buyback (confiscate) our firearms. Then it can be challenged. Are semi automatic rifles, and other semi automatic firearms, in common use? Does the protections on the right to keep and bear arms extend to these? Are restrictions on the right subject to strict scrutiny? It may even open up a chance to reinterpret prior decisions as it pertains to “public use” of the takings clause of the Fifth Amendment.
If it turns out in our favor, great. If not, then there is no political solution, and we get to decide whether or not we will suffer a long train of abuses and usurpations.
So, thank you, Beto the Furry. I simultaneously appreciate your honesty and douchebaggery.
