Make no mistake. This is a promise of gun confiscation - pure and simple.

The 2nd Amendment prohibits Congress from passing laws which infringe on the right of the People to keep and bear arms.    So as far as the Bill of Rights is concerned, any gun confiscation is a no-no.

Is Beto delusional?  Or does he know something that we don't?

Kamala Harris has also promised to overstep the Constitution and use executive action to ban AR-15s and ban the import of certain semi-automatic guns.

Joe Biden: “You have no constitutional authority to issue that executive order.”

Kamala Harris: (laughing) “Hey Joe, yes we can!”

*applause and cheering from audience*

Joe seems to understand the meaning of the limitations outlined in the 2nd Amendment. To him, the Bill of Rights still means something.

Beto and Kamala both laugh at constitutional limitations.  The document means nothing to them.   Which means they are both guilty of Treason, since they swore an oath to "uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign AND domestic." when they were sworn into office.

Corey Booker also wants to ban ALL semi-auto carbines with detachable magazines:
"We should have a law that bans these weapons, and we should have a reasonable period in which people can turn in these weapons."

Booker later said that any gun owner who refuses to give up his/her "assault weapons" by choice should be sent to prison.

Yes your M1 is safe from confiscation.

For now, anyways.

Hickok 45 demonstrates how NOT to become afflicted with "Garand Thumb"



Ouch. that looks like it could really hurt.

BTW, under Corey Booker's gun ban, even the lowly Ruger 10/22 will be banned and confiscated, because it has "a detachable magazine".   

The gun-grabbers are so stupid.   Angry

I too, have (a copy of) the government provided paperwork that says I have a right to own all of my weapons:

It's called the Bill of Rights.

I guess we know where Mr. O'Rourke stands on the issue of rights and laws forbidding government from violating them...

But, why have an amendment forbidding interference with the right to bear arms when no power is granted to the government to interfere with that right?

Edit: Yes, I know, yamcha will say disarming Americans is constitutional if Congress simply decides it's necessary to disarm us...

It's a valid question.

To me, the answer is obvious.

To gun-grabbers, the right to keep and bear arms makes no sense.

They think smooth-bore muskets are the only firearms that should be allowed to civilians.

Which, of course is absurd.   This is right where we want them.

Doesn't matter, Beto is at something like 1 or 2% in the polls, he will not be the nominee. 

Granted, Warren's record isn't much different and I think she will be the nominee.  If she's said anything close, she will not be elected.

Biden and Bernie have better records on guns, though both have moved toward gun grabbing of late. 

Side note, its how you know that the Dems aren't serious about guns or are racists.  If they actually cared about gun deaths they'd talk about hand guns and leave rifles alone.  Since they only care about white suburbanites in public, they talk about big scary looking rifles.

All democrats are gun-grabbers to some extent.  They all ALL want to put more limitations on gun ownership - they all support infringements on the right of the People to keep and bear arms.
