(Tea Party PAC) – Two of the hottest topics being discussed in America right now are illegal immigration and gun control, both of which have led to lots of bitter feuding between citizens and downright hateful dialogues being held at all levels of society.
On the Democratic Party side of things, you have folks who use the argument that it’s impossible to deport all 11 million illegals living here in the United States because, well, that number is just too many. Yet, somehow, these same individuals think they’ll be able to confiscate 16 million AR-15s.
Me thinks something isn’t adding up here. If they’re equipped with the staggering amount of resources needed to somehow, by a miracle, get these weapons and rip them from the hands of diehard American supporters of the Second Amendment, why can’t those same resources be used to deport 11 million illegals?
On May 19, 2016, the New York Times ran a story asking, “What would it take to deport 11 million and build a wall?”
On September 29, 2016, the Nation asked, “What if the US really did deport 11 million people?”
Politico followed the June 27, 2019, Democrat presidential debate by suggesting candidates made a mistake by calling attention to “11 million” illegal immigrants without even asking, “Should there be any limit on who gets to come to the United States?”
Suffice it to say, “11 million” is a go-to figure for Democrats and their surrogates in the establishment media. And the “11 million” illegals are people the Democrats refuse to deport.
But Democrat presidential candidates such as Kamala Harris and Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke have no problem open talking about confiscating the 16 million-plus AR-15s owned by law-abiding citizens in this country. (The National Shooting Sports Foundation confirmed the figure of 16 million-plus to Breitbart.)
Harris, for her part, says she is not sure about the details on taking the guns, she only knows it would be a government-mandated buyback.
O’Rourke paints of a picture of taking the guns that makes it look simple as can be. During a weekend campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, he made clear his belief that people will comply with an AR-15 ban, alleviating the need to send police door-to-door for the firearms.
Beto O’Rourke proposes one of the most RADICAL and dangerous policies on guns.
This latest video clip proves exactly how out of touch he really is!! Take a look…. https://t.co/menYIutQ78

Harris’ campaign website pledges she is dedicated to a “pathway to citizenship for the 11 million people living in our communities and contributing to our economy.” And on June 26, 2019, the New York Times reported O’Rourke wants “Congress to enact legislation that would create a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented people and rewrite immigration rules to prioritize family unity.”
But the 16 million-plus AR-15s have to go.
The biggest misconception the left has about the right’s view on immigration is that we somehow hate folks from other countries, including Mexico, coming here at all. That’s not true. Not even a little bit.
We love and want people from all over the world to come and be part of the American experiment. However, we have to have laws to protect citizens from criminals and to safeguard resources that are scarce. We don’t have an infinite amount of money to throw at welfare programs to support a massive influx of individuals crossing the border illegally.
If a person doesn’t respect our immigration laws, what makes anyone think they’ll respect our other laws and our culture?
