Notably, what he proposed isn't gun control, any more than banning political speech online is containing extremism.

He proposed rebooting the failed AWB. Bans.


Beto went above and beyond the AWB. He's openly calling for confiscation, no Dem at the national level has had the gall to do that. They've always said you'll be able to keep anything you currently own but just not buy any new ones.

Beto says you'll have no choice to turn it in, and that would not end well.

That's a long line of people who's rights are being thrown in the gutter under your definitions.

Yes.

Pragmatically speaking you know that isn't how that works out.
Maybe your "Should" ought to be where no one is able to destroy freedoms rather getting a vengeance kick of them.

It's a pretty vague chart all in all, and depending on how that stuff is defined can make huge differences.

Has anyone actually explained how AOC's plan won't work or is everyone just crowing about how bad it is because the GOP told them it was bad because reasons?

So what makes it an apt description then if it's not saying it won't work?

Or are you just arguing in circles rather than having to admit to being wrong?

Your free to not vote for him. He has a right to say what he did and not be thrown in prison. That’s what a dictatorship would do. Going by your past statements any elected official who disagrees with you should be jailed
