As we told you last night during the Democrat debate, Beto O’Rourke again promised that if he’s elected president, the turning over of certain kinds of guns will be mandatory. Here’s that moment:

The O’Rourke campaign obviously anticipated the topic arising, because they even had t-shirts at the ready:
Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15.

Does he even realize what that kind of thing is doing?
Gun manufacturers should give Beto a bonus for all the guns they are going to sell because of him… https://t.co/DW4TusAwVN

O’Rourke is clearly going for the Gun Salesman of the Year award while making a tremendous in-kind donation to Trump’s re-election effort.

Zero of the things that come out of Beto's mouth are organic. It's all strategic. https://t.co/i4QqTsN3nw

Did O’Rourke always take this approach?
How come he didn't run on this against Ted Cruz? https://t.co/wRgKhHFdQg

Interesting question! O’Rourke didn’t always promise to support mandatory gun confiscation, especially when he was trying to get elected to the U.S. Senate in Texas:
