TX Dem Party Chair Throws Cold Water on Beto Gun Grab


JORGE RAMOS, SENIOR ANCHOR, UNIVISION: I believe that the most impressive part was listening to Congressman Beto O’Rourke, who is from El Paso, Texas, saying, “yes, we are taking away your weapons of war, we don’t want them.” Is that something that can be accepted here, Gilberto? For someone to come and say, “I’m taking your machine gun away from you”?


GILBERTO HINOJOSA, CHAIR, TEXAS DEMOCRATIC PARTY: Um. it would be very difficult to do that in the State of Texas because in this state, it is common for people to have many weapons... to have....weapons of war...um...to have many guns, to collect guns...and Texans have a history of protecting their right to bear arms, and that would be very difficult.

RAMOS: So, mandatory confiscation.
