Beto O’Rourke on gun control: ‘Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15’


You said, ‘Americans who own
AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell the to the government.
All of them. You know the critics call this
confiscation. Are you proposing taking away
their guns, and how would this work? – I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed
to kill people on a battlefield. [applause] If the high-impact, high-velocity
round, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of
your body because it was designed to do that so that
you would bleed to death on a battlefield, and not be able
to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being
used against children. And in Odessa, I met the mother
of a 15-year-old girl who was shot byan AR-15
and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course
of an hour because so many other people were
shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, in Midland, that
there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell yes, we’re going to
take your AR-15, your AK-47. [applause] We’re not going to allow it
to be used like this on fellow Americans anymore. [cheering and applause] – Thank you.
– And I want to say this. I’m listening to people of this country.
The day after I proposed doing that I went to a gun show in
Conway, Arkansas to meet with those who are
selling AR-15s and AK-47s and those who are buying
those weapons. And you might be surprised,
there was some common ground there. Folks who said I would willingly
give that up, cut it to pieces. I don’t need this weapon
to hunt, to defend myself. It is a weapon of war,
so let’s do the right thing, but let’s bring everyone into
the conversation. Republicans, Democrats,
gun owners and non-gun owners alike.

  1. Ladies and Gentleman…….

    Aaaannnnnnnnd……..NEW!…..World's Dumbest Candidate EVER!……..

    Beto……"Come an Get Em'" O'Rourke.

  2. How stupid can you be. I watched people bleed to death and burn to death from drunk driving which kills more than guns. Yet where is the alcohol reform.

  3. Ahahahaaaa 😁😁😁 you're not a Texan if you are you need a reminder of what Texans believe
    Years ago Texans told Mexico to come and take it if you want to what tf do you think they'd tell you???
    Weapon of war lmmfao

  4. It’s not guns it’s HATE that kills what are you gonna do when they use knives and other weapons!!!

  5. "If it is a weapon designed to kill people on a battlefield"

    The United States of America was a battlefield. Which is why the winners of that battle chose to have guns

  6. The only thing that will stop the mass shootings is to blame the
    NRA & Trump and score political points !    lol

    Criminals don’t care about gun laws, so lets pass more gun laws.   lol

  7. Let me sum it up for everyone. If it was meant to go bang…blah blah blah…more fear mongering……….more play on words just describing every gun ever……lying about the round and it’s ability….describing the damage ignoring its not even half as bad as a hunting round. Oh and tyranny. That’s about it.

  8. Hey you said we need to listen to children. I’m a kid does my opinion matter. Ha nope not to you because it doesn’t fit your narrative. Also stop using the deaths of teens as a political gain.

  9. Legal definition of criminal extortion – The taking of property by force or threat of punishment. Beto says he wants to force us to sell the government our guns or be punished with imprisonment. Beto is a criminal, and so are the rest of these lowlife Democrats on the stage with him. Beto, when you think you're man enough to take my AR-15, well come and try. When you feel froggy, jump

  10. Liberal logic: If I can't talk about abortion because I'm a man. Then you can't talk about guns if you are not a gun-owner yourself.

  11. The answer is not take the guns away, the answer is to take care of the american people, better education, better jobs and oportunity for parents to educate their families, as long as there are struggling families, you will never get rid of violence, violence itself is a sign that somdthing is wrong in society.

  12. But what about the Assault rifles that are used by secret service to guard you, Beto? Are you gonna confiscate those too?

  13. Guns are a serious problem. Especially the ar-15. It’s gotten to the point where these people get free advertising from even their enemies. We need to stop before it’s a monopoly. (It’s a joke)

  14. He cant see the forest for the trees.The issue is mental health.There are many things that can be used to kill .Firearms are probably the best self defense weapon.

  15. Now that’s a threat, please don’t threaten my constitutional right! I didn’t threaten or harm anybody? Our forefathers fought and died protecting our rights, it’s my obligation to continue fighting for that right!

  16. Take my guns???? How about we storm the white house and overthrow this demoncrats!

    This is why we have the 2nd amendment!

  17. So your taking the right to bear arms what if he does get all guns taken what will that stop there’s nothing you can do there are criminals that will get guns any way I think it will make it worse the shootings will get worse and once North Korea finds out and invades the United States and no one can fight back who are we going to look back on and who will be the most hated president of the United States of America that’s right him he not aloud to do something like this

  18. I've got to find some of those AR shredder bullets.
    Maybe nobody has told him that an 06 and 308 have virtually the same velocity as a 223, pushing a bullet 3 times the weight, and will make a hole big as Texas.
    And this Conway gun show lie he keeps pushing is BS. He might have talked to a few hundred to find a couple of 80 year olds that haven't shot anything newer than a British 303 that would say anything like what he claims.

  19. “If it was a weapon designed to be used on the battlefield” so that literally means all weapons. One can argue a bolt action Mauser at one point was an “assault rifle” and designed to “be used on the battlefield”.

  20. I'm so happy this guy said this he just blew himself out of the presidency and the rest of the Democrats. They are going to be back peddling he's f**** with our Second Amendment rights to protect ourselves

  21. That 15 year old was shot by a crazy person not an ar-15. Guns don't kill people. People kill people because some people are crazy.

  22. We have let far too many infringements on our bill of rights to pass.
    We the people need to take a stand before it's to late without our 2nd amendment we might as well be sheep led by wolves.

  23. Bring it buddy. These aren’t military weapons and you don’t know what you’re talking about. Only a fudd would give up such a gun and say it’s for military use. That is completely false.

    When the people are afraid of the government, there is tyranny. When the government is afraid of the people, there is liberty. Give me liberty or give me death.

    This is not a political game anymore.

  24. You literally have a snowball chance in hell to even go up against Trump let alone beat him,you get no more armed security,we all know our local police are not gonna take any order where they go disarm their friends and family,when Beto goes into Chicago and takes guns away from gang members ,maybe some people may give up their guns that are legally bought

  25. There were over 40 thousand traffic fatalities in the US for each year in the 3-year period 2016-2018–according to the National Safety Council. That's just over 120 thousand people killed in motor vehicle accidents for that 3-year period. Is any politician saying "Hell yes, we're going to take your motor vehicle!"?

  26. On the night of April 18, 1775, hundreds of British troops marched from Boston to nearby Concord, Massachusetts in order to seize an arms cache. Paul Revere and other riders sounded the alarm, and colonial militiamen began mobilizing to intercept the Redcoats. On April 19, local militiamen clashed with British soldiers in the Battles of Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts, marking the “shot heard round the world” that signified the start of the Revolutionary War.

  27. Was Beto’s first arrest for burglary? Then pretty sure his second was for DUI, right before the Twitter scandal. Sounds like the perfect Dem candidate as they LOVE criminals. They could run Stormy Daniels as their Vice President bahahaha

  28. But cops can keep theirs right? Forget this pathetic blabbering fool , who told cnn that THIS is what Texans like, get him the hell out of Texas .

  29. to be honest, what's happening in U.S. is totally terrifying, people owning guns like they're owning pets, they're f-ing "GUNS", guns should not be possessed by normal people, only government institutions have the right to do so, gun possession is not OKAY, it's a threat to society

  30. To bad he threatens to take our rifles but yet hides and wont come to the small town homes of lawfull gun owners and see who he is really hurting…not to mention the affect on the economy this will have…oh those that know little of what they are talking about

  31. Well, the 5.56 was designed to maim rather than kill & the tactic for the m-16 was to put more rounds down range, accuracy by volume. So already he has zero sense of facts or history.

  32. LOL do any of these people realize that IF civilian firearms are taken away, the gap will be filled with FOREIGN invaders with MORE firearms from outside of the U.S. real smart people… not.

  33. How is he going to get the 10 million ar15s off the streets that have been stolen since the 1950s if we give up our guns then the criminals in America will be the worlds largest standing army

  34. How can a Presidential canident completely say what he said, how can this not be treason against the Constitution & The Bill of Rights. Also Beto, any firearm can be used to kill, no matter the type. Furthermore, the AR 15 rifle isn't as powerful as you say, also it's 62 yr old technology. If you don't think our forefather knew about firearm technology increasing over the years, look up the Puckle gun. Was designed & made in the early 1700's. Really well not voting for this asshat. I bet if you did a study on how many people have died from the English long bow, how the wound of a bow or cross bow is just at deadly as a firearm, but is also silent. I am sure not a single person at a gunshow said that at all.

  35. Have three punks with masks on bust into your home. Easily qualifies as a battlefield. We all don’t have the wherewithal for fences and security systems. You probably would not allow us fences either, would you. Quit pandering for votes.
