Beto O’Rourke dismissed criticisms of his sweeping gun control proposal, telling CBS News in an interview that he expects gun owners will go along with his plan
WesternJournal reports Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke doubled down on his plans for a so-called “mandatory buyback” of certain firearms in an interview Thursday night amid criticisms of his gun proposal.
“If we’re able to pass mandatory buyback and I’m able to sign that into law, then I fully expect our fellow Americans to turn in their AR-15s and their AK-47s,” he told CBS News.
“For anyone who does not and is caught in possession or seen in possession of one of these weapons of war or these instruments of terror, that weapon will be taken from them and they will be fined, and if they should persist in continuing to use and to buy these weapons, then there will be other consequences in the criminal code.”
The former Texas representative has been very outspoken about his plans for a “mandatory gun buyback” and his belief that Americans will fully comply with the law without complaint, even though people have criticized his proposal.
“We need to be governed not by polls, but by people who are willing to do what is necessary regardless of its popularity,” O’Rourke said.
