Democrat presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke told CBS News in an interview this week that he will fund his AR-15 buyback via money from gun manufacturers.CBS News’s Tim Perry asked, “How much do you think a mandatory gun buyback would cost taxpayers?”
I think a mandatory buyback can be financed with a surcharge that would be paid by gun manufacturers, those who are making the AR-15s and AK-47s and continue to sell them into our communities despite the terror that they’ve inspired and the lives that have been taken.O’Rourke said his surcharge would fund a buyback “without imposing any new taxes on…Americans.”
He did not mention that the surcharge would raise the price of the firearm, the equivalent of a new tax.
O’Rourke also omitted FBI crime stats for 2018, which show over twice as many people were killed with fists and feet than were killed with rifles of any kind. Those same FBI stats show over five times as many people were killed with knives and cutting instruments than were killed with rifles of any kind.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation calculates there are 16 million-plus privately owned AR-15s in the U.S.
South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa said:
"With overwhelming agreement, unanimous agreement, has resolved that
the expropriation of land (from whites) without compensation should be
amongst the mechanisms available to government to give effect to land reform
and redistribution. That is what is important."
Economic Freedom Fighters (yes Fighters) leader Julius chant
"Kill the Boer, the farmer, Shoot to kill! Pow, pow!"
"We are not calling for the killing of whites, at least for now."
Such behavior and low consciousness does not deserve to be rewarded by your presence.

1. Republicanism and Liberalism Revisited
As noted previously, 18th-century Anglo-American opposition writers employed several political languages. One of these, classical republicanism, asserted reciprocal causal relations between power and property such that a republic secures stability and liberty by way of a “mixed constitution” resting on a broad class of independent proprietors. Critics of England’s post-1688 Whig Oligarchy and its state-financial revolution often deployed this language. This allows many historians to read such “republicans” as vaguely outlined “agrarians” futilely resisting inevitable capitalist development and social change.

Mr. Flynn will ask this Court to dismiss the entire prosecution based on the outrageous and un-American conduct of law enforcement officials and the subsequent failure of the prosecution to disclose this evidence.'Earlier this week, Michael Flynn’s star attorney, Sidney Powell, filed under seal a brief in reply to federal prosecutors’ claims that they have already given Flynn’s defense team all the evidence they are required by law to provide. A minimally redacted copy of the reply brief has just been made public, and with it shocking details of the deep state’s plot to destroy Flynn.

Some advice: Don’t get shot in the face. I don’t care what your friends tell you, it isn’t a good idea. Further, avoid corneal transplants if you can. If you find a coupon for one, in a box of Cracker Jacks maybe, toss it. Transplants are miserable things. Unless you really need one. What am I talking about? Eyes, and losing them, and getting them back. On this, I am an accidental authority.
A large-caliber round, probably from a Russian 12.7mm heavy machine gun, came through the windshield of the truck I was driving. The bullet missed me, barely, because I had turned my head to look at a water buffalo in the paddy beside the road. Unfortunately the glass in front of the round had to go somewhere, in this case into my face. Not good. I didn’t like it, anyway.
