Beto Cites Waco Operation as Model for Gun Seizures - [semi-satire]

Posted: Oct 19th, 2019 - 4:02 am

Democratic presidential candidate former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke pushed back against criticism that his gun confiscation plan is unrealistic by citing "the successful 1993 action against gun scofflaws in Waco taken by the Clinton Administration. Here we had a cult armed to the teeth. Attorney General Janet Reno didn't hesitate to use force to achieve the disarmament of these dangerous misfits. All I'm proposing is that we use the same courageous proactive approach toward today's anti-government traitors and terrorists."

"I am pleased to see that Democrats in the House are advancing a bill that would authorize the disarming of any person deemed a danger to society," the Candidate added. The bill—The Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019—introduced by Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Calif) would authorized law enforcement to seize firearms from persons identified as dangerous by another person or persons who feel threatened.

Strangely, Democrats rejected a proposed amendment from Republicans that would've added criminal gang members as prospective persons to be disarmed. Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo) pointed out that "the majority of violent crime, including gun violence, in the United States is linked to gangs." Carbajal defended rejection of the GOP amendment, explaining that "gang members live outside the law. They can't rely on police to protect them. They need access to guns for their own safety. The people we are most concerned with are those normally considered law-abiding, but perceived as dangerous by other law-abiding persons such as family members, spouses, neighbors, and co-workers. These people don't need to own guns. They can call on the police for protection if they are threatened or attacked by criminals."
