Beto Admits He’d Send Officers to Enforce His Assault Weapons Confiscation Plan

DailyCaller reports after weeks of insisting that his plan — a mandatory buyback program for “assault weapons” such as AR-15s and AK-47s — would not lead to door-to-door confiscation, O’Rourke admitted to “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough that failure to comply would have to result in “a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm.”


Asked how he’d enforce his mandatory assault weapon buyback program during Tuesday night’s Democratic party debate, Beto made it clear there would be “consequences from law enforcement” for those who don’t comply to his plan.

“If someone does not turn in an AR-15 or AK-47, one of these weapons or war, or brings it out in public and brandishes it in an attempt to intimidate, as we saw when we were at Kent State recently, then that weapon will be taken from them,” he said.

“If they persist, there will be other consequences from law enforcement. But the expectation is that Americans will follow the law. I believe in this country, I believe in my fellow Americans. I believe that they will do the right thing.”
