As Twitchy reported earlier Saturday, 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made it clear that as president he would implement a mandatory buy-back of assault weapons. If you own an AK-47 or AR-15, “you’ll have to sell them to the government,” he told a reporter.

This was before news of the twin shootings in Odessa and Midland, Texas, as was Cory Booker’s tweet, in which he promised on Day 1 as president to crack down on gun manufacturers and close all of those dangerous gun sales loopholes.

Executive action, huh? Could you be a little more specific?

Sounds that way, yes.
