Beto Warns “Consequences from Law Enforcement” for Americans Who Won’t Turn in Their AR-15s

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

Per DailyCaller, Beto explained:

“I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law, the same way that we enforce any provision, any law, that we have right now. We don’t go door to door to do anything in this country to enforce the law. I expect Republicans, Democrats, gun owners and non-gun owners alike to respect and follow the law.”

Cooper shot back, “Congressman, just to follow up, your expectations aside, your website says you will fine people who don’t give up their weapons. That doesn’t take those weapons off the street. So to be clear, exactly how are you going to take away weapons from people who do not want to give them up and you don’t know where they are?”

“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.”
