During the 2020 presidential campaign, Texas Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke often bellowed on how, if elected president, he wanted to take away your firearms, specifically your “military-style” AR-15 through a mandatory gun buy-back program, something unconstitutional on its face and a direct infringement of the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment, During the Democratic presidential primary debate on October 15, 2019, the Congressman responded to the question of how he intended to enforce that proposed gun buyback program:

Although he hasn’t offered exact specifics on the program, he did share some additional details at the debate. “If someone does not turn in an A.R.-15 or A.K.-47, one of these weapons of war or brings it out in public and brandishes it in an attempt to intimidate, as we saw when we were at Kent State recently, then that weapon will be taken from them,” he said. “If they persist, there will be other consequences from law enforcement. But the expectation is that Americans will follow the law."

The Second Amendment is the law, Mt. O’Rourke, and just which part of “shall not be infringed” did you not understand. There is no asterisk at the end of the Second Amendment.  Yet you and now soon-to-be-former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would enact your gun grab and take the AR-15 and the hand gun Mitch and Patricia McCloskey “brandished” in their constitutional and lawful defense of their private home in St. Louis in late June 2020 as rioters broke through an iron gate and paraded with their own weapons in front of their hous.

Neither O’Rourke or Pelosi was there to protect them, or even call a social worker. If their laws and ideas had ben in effect back then, the disarmed McCloskey’s quite likely would be dead now, histoticl hotnotes under the headline: “St. Louis Couple Found Murdered After Riots”.

But Beto never got any official role as “gin czar” as promised by the Harris-Biden administration as the choice was made to do it through legislative fiat under Nancy Pelosi’s iron legislative hand. Pelosi’s two main bills are:

  • R. 8, which will impose a Universal Background REGISTRATION system by requiring FBI screening for every firearms transfer (with very few exceptions); and,
  • R. 1446, which will open up the background check process to very lengthy delays (as it would remove the 3-day limit that an FFL must wait before transferring a firearm).

It is not beyond possibility that Joe Biden’s still corrupt FBI could delay gun sales and gun transfers indefinitely as mandatory gun buybacks, aka illegal gun confiscation proceed. Beto may not be the one going door-to-door but you can bet Biden’s DOJ will. The goal of Beto O’Rourke and Nancy Pelosi is to disarm the law-abiding, leaving them defenseless before the felons they are releasing from hail and the felons they are letting  pour across open borders.

Beto O’Rourke will never get the chance to take away the AR-15 kept in the home of Jeremy King of Lithia, Florida and hopefully np other Democrat will get the chance. Jeremy King and his family are grateful for that and for the right to keep and bear arms enshrined, without any asterisk, in the Second Amendment of the Constitution Democrats are claiming to be defending.

Yep, that AR-15, the very same “assault” weapon owned by bitter clingers said to endanger such families and the neighborhoods they live in. Instead it saved his family from n intruder who broke into his house, pisyol-whipped Mr. King, grabbed his 11-tear-old daughter, and threatened to leave the King family another statistic buried deep in the morning news. As Spectrum News 9 tells the story:

The bruises and swelling on Jeremy King's face tells the story of a man on the receiving end of a brutal attack. But his actual account is far more harrowing than his injuries suggest….

“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head,” said King, outside his home on Old Welcome Road in Lithia. “I took a severe beating.”

King said he was inside his home Wednesday when two masked men armed with guns barged in around 9:00pm. He said he doesn't know who they are, never met them and has no idea why he was targeted.  Both men pointed guns at King while demanding money.

“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” he said.

King said one of the men started pistol-whipping him while another kicked him repeatedly in the head. His wife, who is eight months pregnant, was in the back bedroom and peeked out to see what was going on.

King said one of the men shot at her. She retreated, grabbed an AR-15 and returned fire.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

Police later found one of the assailants dead in a nearby ditch. This is just one of the many cases that happen every day of armed citizens saving lives with firearms, unheralded by the media, and portrayed as unstable bitter clingers by bloviating politicians surrounded by armed security.

Stephen Willeford certainly can remind both the grieving and the self-righteous that guns in general and the AR-15 in particular, which has been misrepresented by gun control zealots as an "assault rifle," can be used by good guys to save lives as well as by bad guys to take them.  He is the hero of Sutherland Springs, Texas, who, hearing the sound of gunfire at a nearby church, grabbed the AR-15 he had taught others to use as an NRA instructor and chased down the mass murderer who had shot up the First Baptist Church before he could continue his murder spree elsewhere:                                                                                                                    The hero who last November stopped the gunman behind the deadly Texas church massacre said using an AR-15 enabled him to end the bloodshed.  In an emotional interview with CRTV's "Louder With Crowder" on Monday, Stephen Willeford described the gunfight and dramatic car chase that ensued to stop the shooter from slaughtering additional churchgoers. The former National Rifle Association instructor was home Sunday morning when his daughter told Willeford she had heard gunshots from the nearby Baptist church, prompting him to get his AR-15 rifle from his safe and load a magazine.  He ran to the church and confronted the alleged shooter, Devin Patrick Kelley, who fired shots at Willeford.  While taking cover behind a pickup truck, Willeford fired several shots at the gunman, who sped away in his car.Willeford ran to a truck stopped at a stop sign and asked the driver to help him to stop Kelley, who had a history of domestic violence and had been kicked out of the military.  The two men pursued the gunman, whom [sic] officials say wore tactical gear and a bullet-proof vest, down a nearby highway until the vehicle eventually careened off the side of the road.  When police arrived, Kelley was found dead on the scene with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head as well as two other gunshot wounds – one on his leg and one on his torso.  Officials believe the gunman took his own life."If I had run out of the house with a pistol and faced a bulletproof vest and kevlar and helmets, it might have been futile," Willeford said.  "I ran out with an AR-15 and that's what he was shooting the place up with."

Willeford is just one of the “bitter vlingers” in Texas and elsewhere who shoot back, saving, not endangering lives, by being the good guys with guns stopping the bad guys with guns. Assault is a behavior,  not a weapon, and stopping a bad guy with a gun is not assault.

As one wag put it, a gun in the hand is betters than a cop on a phone and the response time for a bullet from an AR15 fired in self-defense is a lot quicker than calling 911. Other non-scary weapons are just as lethal and the AR15 has been chosen by popular demanded as the defensive weapon of choice. As I wrote in an editorial for Investor’s Business Daily in August 2014, the AR-15 iis arguably the musket of our times:

Now the Second Amendment, written in the era of muskets, does not mention what arms we have the right to keep and bear. But we have an idea, based on how they were used: to protect their owners' homes, businesses, farms and families, and to fight the tyranny of the British crown. It's been said that the Second Amendment was put in the Bill of Rights to protect the other nine.

Gun control advocates say, with some snarkiness, that the Second Amendment doesn't allow one to own nuclear weapons or tanks, so it's merely a question of where we draw the line. They would draw the line at the AR-15 and its counterparts — which, despite the judge's claim, are commonly used for legal, defensive purposes.

The AR-15 is among the guns that must be registered. They've made up 50%-60% of U.S. rifle sales in recent years, federal figures show. The New York Times recently called the AR-15 "The Most Wanted Gun In America." Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has been pushing a bill to reintroduce the ineffective assault weapons 1994 ban that expired in 2004 with no impact on the crime rate.

Feinstein's legislation would outlaw more than 150 types of weapons, from rifles to pistols to shotguns. They include the Streetsweeper and Striker-12, which, again, have frightening appearances yet chamber the same 12-gauge shells that are used to hunt birds.

While used in several high-profile mass shootings, the AR-15 is favored among homeowners, hunters and sport shooters. It's popular for both sport and self-defense among women, who find it easy to carry and handle.

Crime rates and homicides have dropped as concealed-carry laws spread nationwide. As more citizens are armed, predators find it harder to find unarmed victims except in gun-free zones such as the school in Newtown, Conn., or the theater in Aurora, Colo.

Critics of the Second Amendment say that they are not going after guns used for legitimate activities such as hunting. But when the Founders wrote the Second Amendment it was because the British were coming, not because it was the start of deer season. As Fox News contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano once noted:

The historical reality of the Second Amendment's protection of the right to keep and bear arms is not that it protects the right to shoot deer," wrote Judge Andrew Napolitano recently in the Washington Times. "It protects the right to shoot tyrants, and it protects the right to shoot at them effectively, with the same instruments they would use upon us. If the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto had had the firepower and ammunition that the Nazis had, some of Poland might have stayed free and more persons would have survived the Holocaust."

The AR15 is not an assault weapon but a defensive weapon, such as when it was used by a 15-year-old who grabbed his father’s AR-15 and used it to ward off home invaders:

Not only did this brave 15-year-old defend his home against 2 burglars, but also his 12-year-old sister who was in the house with him. He grabbed his father’s AR-15 and shot one of the burglars multiple times. They got away but had to go right to the hospital where the minor was arrested and the adult who was shot was flown to a different hospital.

If the AR15 had been available in 1776, George Washington would have fielded an army armed with it, to be sure, but just as surely every farmer, blacksmith, carpenter, and shopkeeper would have grabbed an AR-15 on their way to the village green to protect our freedoms from the same government tyranny the writers of the Constitution  sought.  to protect us from what Nancy Pelosi and Peter Francis O’Rourke would impose on us.

Critics of the Second Amendment say that they are not going after guns used for legitimate activities such as hunting. But when the Founders wrote the Second Amendment it was because the British were coming, not because it was the start of deer season.

The AR15, like other high-capacity weapons in the hands of the law-abuiding, is a defensive weapon, such as when it was used by a 15-year-old who grabbed his father’s AR!% and used it to ward off home invaders:

Not only did this brave 15-year-old defend his home against 2 burglars, but also his 12-year-old sister who was in the house with him. He grabbed his father’s AR-15 and shot one of the burglars multiple times. They got away but had to go right to the hospital where the minor was arrested and the adult who was shot was flown to a different hospital.

 In the hands of British redcoats, the musket was an assault weapon. In the hands of a law-abiding American, an AR15 is what the Second Amendment is all about.
