“Beto” O’Rourke: I will force Americans to sell their AR-15s


The mass shooting in Odessa, Texas las weekend continued to fuel the narrative from the “gun violence” lobby that “assault weapons” like AR-15’s should be banned from purchase and possession.

Gun control activists like David Hogg want to ban just about all guns and want to start with semi-automatic rifles that have the capability of using “high capacity” magazines.

Florida U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch (D) has introduced legislation to ban “high capacity magazines” and recently stated that he would be heading back to Washington early to expedite the process in order to get his bill through the House of Representatives.

“I want to be clear,” said O’Rourke “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.”

O’Rourke wants gun owners to sell their guns, but to whom? If the AR-15 is banned, who would be able to legally buy them?

No one.
