Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke believes that mass shooters will hand over their AR-15s under his mandatory buyback program for assault rifles.
During a CNN interview, host Carol Costello asked O’Rourke, “You expect mass shooters to follow the law?” O’Rourke answered, “Our fellow Americans will follow the law, yes.”
“Mass shooters … don’t follow the law — by definition.” Costello responded, “It doesn’t make sense that people are going to hand over their ‘assault weapons’ if they’re mass shooters. If they want to do harm to people, they’re not going to follow the law.”
“Would it stop every single shooting? No,” he said. “But that should be no excuse to taking action, not while we have the opportunity to do the right thing.”
CNN roasted Beto and his confiscation scheme – SHOCKING, we know. They kept reminding Beto that criminals don’t follow laws and won’t turn in their guns. Beto refused to answer how he plans on carrying out his scheme. This came hours after Beto promised to go door-to-door. pic.twitter.com/fCa08Q4df4
