At a gun control discussion today, Dem candidate Cory Booker did his best Beto O’Rourke impression with this statement:

Booker says warnings about what would happen next are NRA propaganda:
Booker arguing hard for a mandatory assault weapons buyback. Says the idea that federal agents will show up at your door and grab your guns is "NRA fearmongering."

Well, then what would happen if people didn’t let the government “buy back” their weapons?
Taking people's guns away by force is what a civil war would look like https://t.co/TPd12oZITM

Did he happen to define "assault rifles", or nah?

“Assault rifles” are whatever Dems say they are.
