Beto O’Rourke, the longshot Democrat candidate for president, has insisted his “mandatory buyback” of AR-15s is not confiscation.
We are not certain what one would call strong arming people to sell their property to the government is, but still he insists.
But he showed his hand again in a recent interview where he said that he would enforce his buy back by using the “criminal code.
“If we’re able to pass mandatory buybacks 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 said.
“For anyone who does not and is caught in possession or seen in possession of one of these weapons of war — one of 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,” he said.
It is not the first time he said that he would have law enforcement seize weapons and punish those who do not comply.
Beto on Those Who Won’t Turn in Guns: ‘That Weapon Will Be Taken from Them.’
Watch as Beto O’Rourke says what every Democrats is thinking, namely if you won’t surrender the weapons we don’t want you to have, we’ll take them from you:
COOPER: Congressman, just to follow up, your expectations aside, your web site 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.
O’ROURKE: If someone does not turn in an AR-15 or AK-47, one of these weapons or war or brings it out in public to brandish and intimidate, then that weapon will be taken from them.
But the expectation is that Americans will follow the law.
I believe in this country, I believe in my fellow Americans.
I believe they will do the right thing.
