2020 Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke was asked whether he would confiscate American’s guns during the ABC News Democratic debate Thursday, and he answered, “hell yes.”

“Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have said, ‘Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them.’ You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?” ABC’s David Muir asked.

“I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity round, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers,” O’Rourke continued.

“When we see that being used against children, and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time.”

“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore,” the former Texas congressman said.

O’Rourke has repeatedly signaled his support for gun confiscation, and floated the idea of mandatory buybacks for assault weapons. When asked by a reporter how he would enforce the program, he said that he doesn’t think that law enforcement would need to go “door to door”

“I see Americans complying with the law,” he said.

“How do you — how do we enforce any law? There’s a significant reliance on people complying with the law. You know that a law is not created in a vacuum,” O’Rourke also said.

    This bipolar psycho is selling Tee shirts with “Hell Yes I’m Going to take American’s Guns” printed on them. Still waiting on how this clown plans on taking the guns from gang members and other active criminals. Someone please video tape it in full when and if it happens.

  • Chaz says:

    Beto needs to be on the confiscation team going door-to-door for the first month or so of the collection mission. Sounds entertaining.

    This is what happens when you have a small penis. Jealously of anyone who is packing

    I have no knowledge of the AK47 but the AR15 was never designed for the battlefield. The Military has and will never use the AR15 for the battlefield. It would never pass the rigid specifications needed to be a battlefield weapon. Robert Francis O’Rourke is clearly grandstanding. He has no knowledge of the AR15 and I bet he has none of the AK47 as well. He is clearly extending his grandstanding as he did with his fake moniker ‘Beto’ which he uses to try to win over the latino voters. He is nothing but a FRAUD in my opinion.

    • Wilson says:

      The AR-15 is nothing but the red-headed stepchild of the M-4 carbine. It was stripped of its functions that would have made a military grade weapon so it could be mass produced and sold to the public.

  • Jon Wisdom says:

    Just wait until the American public sees the price tag. The Constitution is clear – people have the right to bear arms. The Constitution is just as clear – if the government takes something,it has to pay a fair price. Has “beto” as he brands himself thought about how to pay? Along with the other costs his anti-American policies will bring?

    Beto has about as much of a chance to be elected president as a fart in a hurricane….Americans aren’t that stupid….they should have learned from the golfer in chief…you know Obumski
