Democratic presidential candidate Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke says “it’s not right” for people to have AR-15’s and that if he’s president he expects people to turn them in or “face other consequences” from law enforcement.
“Look, we're going to make sure that the priority is saving the lives of our fellow Americans. I think almost everyone on this stage agrees that it's not right and as president, I would seek to ban the sale of AR-15s and AK-47s, “ Beto said during Tuesday’s debate.
“So, I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law, the same way we enforce have any provision any law that we have right now.”
“If someone does not turn in an AR-15 or AK- 47 - one of these weapons of war - or brings it out in public to 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. 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."
