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.”

‘The National Shooting Sports Foundation’ determined that there are more than 16 million privately owned AR-15s in the United States, Breitbart reports.
