“Hell Yes, We’re Gonna Take Your AR-15…”

Those words grabbed your attention, didn’t they? Well, you are in good company because you weren’t the only one who had a reaction and response. That phrase was uttered by long-shot presidential hopeful and Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke. It isn’t uncommon to see mudslinging from across the aisle, from either side. It also isn’t uncommon to see pointed banter and trash-talking between opposing sides or parties. This, however, was a different kind of verbiage altogether and even bordered on threatening.

These comments, remarks, retorts and fiery responses all took place via Twitter, which has also become a commonplace forum for political matters, discussions, and politicians. Rarely though has Twitter felt the need to remove comments, especially from those within the political arena, for violations of their policies. In this case, they did.

In their defense, this was quite the heated exchange between the opposing parties, some have even deemed it threatening as one story reported. It wasn’t long after O’Rourke’s comment, “hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15” that a “social media firestorm,” as the aforementioned story called it, broke out. How ugly was it? Let’s put it this way, if words were bullets then we might be making some funeral arrangements. One of the most intense, direct, and angry responses came from Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain, who tweeted, “my AR is ready for you.” Yes, he said that!

Cain’s response was almost violent enough to make us forget what prompted it, almost. Then we remember that his response came, not as retaliation but as a counter strike to what our story said, “many would consider a threat in and of itself… .” The story isn’t wrong either. How is that not a threat on some level?

What happened next is a classic case of blowing the whistle on the guy who swung back but missing the guy who swung first. In this case, the Twitter referees called the, “my AR is ready for you” a personal foul but there was no flag for O’Rourke’s comment. Not even out of bounds, nothing? Nope, just one comment deleted by the Twitter police and play on. That isn’t to say that there wasn’t some noise made and support for Cain in addition to some backlash aimed at Twitter. According to our story, there was noted support from 2nd Amendment supporters who argued that Briscoe Cain’s comments fall well within the realm of protection afforded by the 1st Amendment.

Thankfully, regardless of who is sitting in the oval office, Republican or Democrat or who controls the House, a door-to-door search isn’t going to happen. At least not without some unforeseen and seismic shift in how our government operates. Can’t you picture it, as Gun Collection agents go from house to house kicking in doors in swat enforcement gear, searching high and low for guns? Yeah, we can’t see it either because that won’t happen. Our story and even O’Rourke himself said as much.

So we can chalk this up to another event where politicians and those on both sides of the gun control issue are attacking each other, right? For the most part, that sounds about right. There is something to be realized outside of the passionate and heated bickering between these groups though, like where one particular presidential hopeful stands on the gun control issue. At least for now.

These exchanges could also offer some insight into how far the left is willing to go to take guns and gun ownership rights away. They are serious and this story suggested that a serious and even game-changing transition in gun laws could happen more easily than we might imagine. As the story pointed out this would, “…depend on a Democrat being elected president, Democrats taking over the Senate, and draconian gun ban laws being passed. All of which could happen, easily.”

That is a sobering thought and one that may keep pro-gun rights activists up at night. It is also a reason for all of us to be a little concerned because behind this heated bickering and those veiled threats, are people passionate about their agendas. About gun laws and as they said themselves, “hell yes, we’re gonna take your…” firearms too.

  1. Beto, the birdbrain, along with EVERY one of his SUPER LEFT dingbat cohorts who advocate the confiscation of legally owned weapons–owned by law abiding citizens, and non citizens alike–fail to understand that the vast majority of the American people will not stand for such a politically radical move as this! There will be open civil warfare in the streets long before any confiscation can take place. These stupid knee-jerk politicos can’t seem to get it through their left wing heads that the 2nd Amendment was included in our Constitution for the express purpose of stopping dictatorial edicts such as this from happening. Simply put, to stop a tyrannical government from usurping the Constitutional rights guaranteed to ALL citizens of our Country. The use of weapons for hunting is only ONE of the reasons for owning weapons–self preservation and thwarting governmental sedition is perhaps the MOST logical reason!

  2. This low life socialist demorat animal Beetoe O’Rourke is a disgrace to our country and should be declared an enemy of the state and sent to Gitmo as a traitor to our country and defying our Constitution. His purposely threatened our citizens with his ignorant statement knowing the actions he stated would in fact result in lives lost and another revolutionary war as justified by the Declaration of Independence, the foundation of our country and the Constitution. All those that agree with this animal can join him at Gitmo. Note the authority providing the declaration of a person as enemy of the state and placed in Gitmo without a trial was an executive order signed by Traitor Obama.

  3. They are NOT coming for just the AR15, but ALL guns at least the semi-automatic ones. Once they get the AR15 banned they will use our words and true definition to get the rest as a legal precedence has been established. They will cite that the AR15 isn’t a weapon of war, but a semi-automatic rifle which allows them to ban all other semi-automatic firearms.

  4. We have a very sick society and assault weapons need to be banned, for the protection of all. We did not always permit them in our society. They are great for our domestic terrorists. It took Australia one mass shooting to ban assault weapons and one of their sick ones went to New Zealand because he could buy it there and shot a group of people. They are now banned in New Zealand. The point is, Australia hasn’t had a mass shooting since. Why do we need to train our children how to try to protect themselves from an assault attack? Most of us never went through that.

  5. The first step to tyranny is disarming the populace.
    The 2nd amendment acknowledges the God given right
    to self defense and the ability to throw off any attempt
    at said tyranny.
    to the sleazy traitor ‘Bozo’ O’Rorke I say the same thing they said to the British at Concord;,
    “Come and get it, but I’ll turn over my ammo first….HOT!!”

  6. Beto is a TREASONISTIC TRAITOR to the ideals that our country was founded on, and an affront to the LAW ABIDING gun owner. His campaign is finished. Under NO circumstances will I EVER vote for a TRAITOR like that, Democrat OR Republican. I am a CONSERVATIVE, believing in what our GOD FEARING Founding Fathers had shaped for this God Fearing Nation. And, the 2nd Amendment CLEARLY lets us know that this right “will not be infringed” . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  7. Most Americans are not even aware that AR-15s are no longer automatic. That function is removed before sale to American citizens can take place. Classic democrat deception.

  8. I always knew that it was the lefts agenda to disarm law-abiding citizens that they would be no match for the criminals or liberal mobs that attacked us, ie Antifa. The way to bring down a powerful nation is 2 first disarm its ppl, bankrupt its wealth, neglect funding military and open boarders to make it unsecured. That is the whole of the lefts agenda to destroy America.

  9. With this and if they mean to really take firearms away from the American people they will start a civil war like non other And we all have seen what the Dems. have as followers it will be a very short war, and the Dems. will lose big time. There are just to many who love this country our right that will not surrender their firearms. And yes I’m one of them I would like to settle this peacefully but I will not back down or give up my rights.

  10. Did you notice the word, “TAKE!!!!!!!!!” ????

    DID you notice the possible LIE?
    He probably should have said, “Democrats are going to START by TAKING your AK 47.” History has shown they end up taking all your guns, all your money, all your property, all your religion, all your freedom, and to the best of their ability, all your heart, mind, soul, time, life, and eternity. And when there is nothing left of value they spit you out or, herd you up, lock you up, enslave you, or kill you. Same old routine, Different group, different date in history.

  11. Robert Francis needs to go for a mental exam. He is failing in the polls and he continues to shout out the most radical ideas. I would be embarrassed if I was him. He has a silver spoon in his mouth and doesn’t see the struggles of the everyday common people. Drop out RF. U R going to loose.

  12. It’s appropriate time to make a few plans for
    the future and it’s time to be happy. I have learn this publish and if I may I desire to counsel you few attention-grabbing things or suggestions.
    Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to learn even more things about it!

  13. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a
    blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too
    few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this during my search for something
    relating to this.

  14. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  15. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours lately, but I never discovered any fascinating
    article like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  16. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you
    center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
