Beto O’Rourke repeated his pledge to initiate a mandatory buyback of assault weapons if he is elected president.
O’Rourke was asked Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, how he would address the fears of some Americans that the government would take away their assault weapons.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said. “Americans who own AR-15s, AK-47s, will have to sell them to the government. We’re not going to allow them to stay on our streets, to show up in our communities, to be used against us in our synagogues, our churches, our mosques, our Walmarts, our public places.”
His comments over the weekend echo an op-ed he wrote earlier this month after a gunman killed 22 people at a Walmart in his hometown of El Paso, Texas.
BuzzFeed reporter molly Hensley-Clancy stated in a Twitter post, “A reporter asked Beto in Charlottesville how he’d reassure people afraid the gov’t would take their assault weapons away. “I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do,” he said. If you own an AK-47 or AR-15, “you’ll have to sell them to the government.”
Beto’s campaign confirmed the statement, responding, “We’re going to buy back all of the assault weapons.”

#Beto says ban on sales
& forced buyback of
“Weapons of War”
That’s a nonsense term the Left uses to generate hysteria
He means ban and confiscate all semi-automatic weapons. The Constitution says no
