Sheriff Mark Cage of Eddy County, New Mexico, made it clear that his deputies will not serve in the “personal Gestapo” of gun confiscator and presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, according to Breitbart.
“I’m not sure whether his statements are naive or just plain ignorant and arrogant. Maybe it’s all three,” Cage told Townhall about O’Rourke’s vow to enforce a mandatory government buyback of all AR-15s and AK-47s if elected. “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s,” O’Rourke has declared. He has also promised to send police to the homes of the non-compliant.
“The thought of anyone utilizing my sheriff’s office or any other law enforcement agency in this country as their personal Gestapo to go door to door violating citizen’s rights is disgusting, unrealistic and downright un-American,” Cage continued.
“Some of my constituents are already adopting the mantra of ‘Come take mine, Beto!’… His rhetoric has gotten old and I look forward to the day when he shuts up,” Sheriff Cage added.
