I'd tell him to kiss my ass but he'd probably take me up on it.

Take a look at what actually gets bought back....90% are single shot shotguns, old 22s, broken antiques, etc. NOTHING that a 'gang' or 'mass shooter' would ever use anyway.

Sometimes, I must admit, I am left shaking my head when I consider the wide ranging abilities of people on this site to speculate, pretend, imagine, and extrapolate far down the line of events the slippery slope consequences that could occur under the right circumstances from the enacting of a law, to restrict high capacity magazines, for instance, and can tell you how that will inexorably lead to gun confiscations and to an inability to one day fight a tyrannical government.

...Yet Y'all lack the simple imagination to picture a kid rummaging through a closet and stumbling upon a forgotten gun.



Also theft is possible too... That's one reason why gun safes are a thing, and if anyone is just shoving their firearm (especially if its loaded) in some forgotten corner of the house, they are not responsible fire arm owners. (Especially if they don't inform others, or if they have kids)

Sounds like cash for clunkers. That worked well

There have been some tragic incidences about kids and unsecured guns. There has also been some tragic incidences of kids and unsecured medications, Tide pods, knives, dressers that crush them, swimming pools, hot cars and thousands of other potentially harmful items.

You unfortunately lack the understanding of what all that means and instead focus on the item. Even if you do mention in passing irresponsible people.

I am curious how many unwanted guns have you bought and destroyed to save the children.

Im fine with voluntary gun buy backs at the state level.

I love that people have found ways to mfg cheap guns that can then be profitably sold to buy backs

The fact is, at some point, we are going to be facing a 'tyrannical form of government'. The question is, will there be enough with the will to fight it, let alone, the means!!! We only missed it by a hair with the Klinton defeat.

Though I have most of my firearms in a safe, no kids have any business in my house. If any break in and get hurt with something, it is their parents' responsibility!!

You make some valid points!!

O'Rourke's campaign promoted interactions he had with gun show vendors and attendees who agreed with aspects of the plan, including a self-identified Trump voter who does not oppose a mandatory buyback program for assault rifles

I know a guy who was there.


They were tipped off he was coming, he walked in, they kicked him out.
He postured in the parking lot a few minutes and left.

They lie. (No surprise.)

I remember reading about some old woman bringing in her late husbands gun collection.

Included was a rare Artillery Luger, a Mauser 98k, and a STG44. All World War II "Bring Backs". One of the cops happened to be honest, and while I don't recall exactly what happened, she got money out of it...

I've seen pictures of "guns" they bought that were not much more than a piece of iron water pipe attached to a 2X4.

Beto seems pretty obsessed with depriving the American people of their gun rights.

Beto states: "if we don't wake up to this threat, it will kill us in our sleep".

Let's see how many other threats might "kill us in our sleep" if we don't wake to them?

How about?

* North Korean development of multi-stage intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of precisely targeting mainland US cities?

* Iran enrichment of uranium leading to an Iranian nuclear yield, and announcement of Iran as a nuclear nation?

* China invading Hong Kong and taking over, mass executions, military control of the territory, and a warning that the US 7th Fleet will henceforth remain outside the Pacific Rim and the South China Sea?

* Russian forces invading Ukraine?

* A Militant Islamist Populist movement conducting a coup in Pakistan, with the result that Pakistani nuclear weapons fall into the hands of a state-sponsored militant Islamist organization?

* The re-emergence of the FARC in Venezuela threatening stability in Columbia, with the result that a Columbian military column invades Venezuela, taking advantage of it's current economic ruin and social chaos?

* Turkey releasing millions and millions of the refugees currently bottled up in Turkey to allow their direct migration into Western Europe, causing economic chaos and political instability throughout the Euro-Zone?


One wonders whether Beto has taken any time at all to consider all the myriad OTHER challenges he might face as President, what his current plans are, and how he'd go about dealing with these crises - rather than his single focus on the destruction of the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution.

Nothing Beto has said indicated he's even marginally aware of these possibilities.

Which issues do you think might "kill us in our sleep" first, Gun Control, or International Crises?

Beto has his priorities confused....which is okay, because Beto doesn't stand a chance in hell of getting elected based on his diatribes against US gun owners to date.

Yet, you are the very one who claims: "Unable to read or comprehend rules"

The rest of us can. We are law abiding citizens who ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.

Only in "bizarro, upside-down world" would a government directed NOT to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, infringe, due to the bad behavior of criminals.
