As we told you last night during the Democrat debate, Beto Oâ€™Rourke again promised that if heâ€™s elected president, the turning over of certain kinds of guns will be mandatory. Hereâ€™s that moment:

The Oâ€™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 himâ€¦ https://t.co/DW4TusAwVN

Oâ€™Rourke is clearly going for the Gun Salesman of the Year award while making a tremendous in-kind donation to Trumpâ€™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 Oâ€™Rourke always take this approach?
How come he didn't run on this against Ted Cruz? https://t.co/wRgKhHFdQg

Interesting question! Oâ€™Rourke didnâ€™t always promise to support mandatory gun confiscation, especially when he was trying to get elected to the U.S. Senate in Texas:
