Video: Democrat Presidential Candidate Declares He Will Forcefully Confiscate Firearms If Elected
2020 hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke announced he will enact “red flag laws” and forcefully confiscate AK-47’s and AR-15’s if he is elected President.
“And more importantly and politically difficult to say, buy those weapons of war back — mandate that — not voluntarily. Let’s be clear with our fellow Americans. No place for an AK-47 or an AR-15 on the streets of our communities,” Beto said during an appearance on MSNBC on Sunday.

On Saturday in North Carolina, a reporter asked Beto how he’d reassure people afraid the government would take their assault weapons away. Beto replied, “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 confirmed this and posted, “We need to buy back every single assault weapon.”
I was asked how I’d address people’s fears that we will take away their assault rifles.
I want to be clear: That’s exactly what we’re going to do. Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell their assault weapons. All of them. pic.twitter.com/YbnSsz3bVy

So not only do Democrat Presidental candidates want to open up our southern border, they want to take our guns as well. So much for the constitution and law and order.
