Robert “Beto” O’Rourke explained he plans to use fines to “compel” American gun owners to comply with his AR-15 ban, during a weekend exchange with reporters.

O’Rourke made his claim in a video posted by Fox4 DFW’s Teresa Riley.

He was asked how he plans to make Americans comply with his AR-15 ban and he said, “I begin by saying we expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If they do not there would be a fine imposed to compel them to follow the law.”

O’Rourke went to talk about the example of Australia, citing how that country put in place a similar ban. He claimed Australia witnessed, “a near 50 percent reduction in gun violence deaths” as a result. But O’Rourke did not mention that rifles are not a statistically significant contributor to overall gun deaths in the U.S.

"I begin by saying we expect our fellow Americans to follow the law."

Except for immigration law, right Beta?

Say a small fine of say, $250,000 per firearm.

The Progressives will now want to start equating Semi-Automatics to things child porn.

Or any other law the left doesn’t like.

It’s JUST a fantasy that I would NEVER act on, but I can actually hear my fist as it crashes onto that joke of a jaw and smashes it into being wired for 6 to 8 weeks.

But that’s just me.

Today it’s a fine for non-compliance. Tomorrow it’s prison.

Beto’s fake modest name, the ordinary clothes, the old drunk driving thing, the bit about being a Punk Rock Drummer:

I have to conceed he does a good job pretending to relate to you, to being Just Like You.

But did you know Beto’s ullllltra-fancy High School cost $50k yearly..? Not college, okay? HIGH SCHOOL. Here is a sky shot:

Woodberry has it’s own GOLF COURSE:

A high-school golf course, wow, playing flinch and Titty Twister on the way to the next hole..? Wow. Sheesh, that’s pretty impressive.

And Beto, the gun who openly declares he’ll take your guns away..? In this diversity shot below you’ll see the SHOOTING RANGE at his high school:

His form is all effed up, btw, sorta weird for the son of a potentate from Africa, where shooting well is usually a requirement.

Remember Lovey and Thurston Howle?

Beto’s upbringing would have made them seem like HOBOS.

Beto won an award at Woodberry for “Imaginative Poetry”. Nice, eh..?

”We’ll just have to make do with a bit of LaCrosse throwing around near the Azelea garden, I’m afraid, ole boy...”

Beto has NOTHING in common with you at all and his stupid name is an INSULT, considering what you see here about his life on a different planet.

Tell your friends about unrelatable, rich liar, “BETO”.

I begin by saying we expect our fellow Americans to follow the law.

And if we don't, Beta? What if we follow the Constitution instead?

If they do not there would be a fine imposed to compel them to follow the law.

Imposed by whom? Enforced by whom? Spit it out, you miserable, two-bit schoolyard Nazi! Gonna kick down any doors personally, Beta? I didn't think so.

I won't even ping the banglist for this Beto idiot.

Waiting patiently for the gun bill being negotiated in the House, to be presented to the President.
