Democratic Debate: Beto Says To Hand In Guns Or They’ll Be Consequences

This should work out well for Beto, right? And you can bet this kind of stuff will come up in commercials for whomever gets the nomination, positioned as “this guy is in your party”

(Breitbart) O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles.

O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same way we enforce any provision, any law that we have right now, we don’t go door to door to do anything to enforce the law. I expect Republicans, Democrats, gun owners, non-gun owners alike, to follow the law.”

Why would non-gun owners comply? They don’t have guns. What’s that? He expects non-gun owners to snitch on those they know have the guns? Huh.

Cooper then followed up by asking what O’Rourke plans to do if Americans do not comply.

O’Rourke said, “If someone does not turn an AR-15 or an AK-47, one of these weapons of war, or brings it out in public and brandishes it, in an attempt to intimidate…then that weapon will be taken from them. If they persist, there will be other consequences from law enforcement.”

Unfortunately, Anderson did not follow up with what those consequences would be. Anyhow, how does this play with the American electorate? Might it turn off many gun owning Democrats from voting D for president? They might not vote Trump, but they won’t vote D. And many may just say “hang it all” and not bother voting at all. But, hey, what comes next? Might a President Beto go the New Zealand route?

New Zealand PM Ardern steps up fight against extremist online content

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced more funding and support on Monday to target violent extremist content online, just months after an alleged white supremacist live-streamed a massacre at two mosques in Christchurch. (snip)

Ardern said the government was investing NZ$17 million ($15.8 million) over four years to boost New Zealand’s ability to find, stop and stamp out terrorist and violent extremist content online quickly. (snip)

The new department’s powers include investigating and prosecuting those committing offences through both proactive detection and working with international and domestic partners, it added.

“Our online world must be a force for good where we can exchange ideas, share technology, and maintain civil liberties while protecting New Zealanders from objectionable content,” Ardern said in the statement.

Who establishes what’s Wrongthink? Who controls that? I know I’ve been accused of being a Nazi, a Fascist, of posting objectionable content. This site has been banned in China, and banned in India. I read websites of the other side all the time. THey are constantly calling to shut down the sites of anyone who doesn’t agree with them, to get them banned from social media. How does it maintain civili liberties when the government is going to force bannings? Will that be Beto’s next step?

    New Zealanders need protection from objectionable content? Their entire population is being put under Parental Controls by their politicians? Don’t they have any adults?
