  1. Well, that’s that. I would like a pony, but I have to settle for the train. Better laws, better enforcement, manditory training, etc… taking away Dre’s AK?

    Beto, I’m afraid this isn’t your day.

  2. He lost my support once he transitioned from common sense gun laws to extremist anti 2nd amendment laws

    • you actually supported him before that? he’s a half-cooked microwave dinner.

      @xiaoka No he never had my support .. but he is right on the gun issue .. country’s that have less guns have less death by guns so what is the common sense thing to do ? America leads the world in gun deaths

    • @Christopher Melick thats a pretty bold statement there, as a gun instructor(i wouldnt consider myself a gun lover though) id like to hear why you believe i have no common sense

    • @Jeff Newtown as someone who understands and knows quiet a bit about guns i should let you know that assault weapons is a made up term that is just trying to describe things involved in a semi automatic rifle. which might i ad is nearly every single rifle on the market, which is also nearly every single pistol as well. be careful when you want to be against something you dont truly know enough about

  3. Really “great” idea.
    What a waste.

  4. Why do we have the right to keep arms bear arms? To protect from a tyrannical government.

    • grace white

      Yeah? You think people are going to be able to win against a tyrannical government with a modern military?

      I think that’s an excuse.

      Another way to protect from a tyrannical government is public education and voting for non corrupt politicians.

    • Wendy Pastore I think you are talking about brainwashing.. Doesn’t surprise me at all though.. you are a brainwashed liberal joke!

      Wendy Pastore the first and second amendments are inextricably linked. If you lose either you lose both.

  5. Beto confiscate this 🖕

  6. If anyone believes that the citizens of states like Georgia will EVER allow their weapons to be confiscated, then you are living in a false reality created by the media. This clown knows this……you might not.

    BETO Are you that thick? Just say, “The people who refuse to give up their *weapon of war* are the dangerous people the law is made for.” Duh. Shhhh, you talk too much #BetoOrourke

    Lol he is laughable.
    He thinks he is living in a fairytale

  10. Orourke is a nut like yang…they can say anything, they’re not going to win

  11. Put me on the list Beto. I will not turn mine in . What you going to do???

  12. I have been a Democrat since I registered to vote at 18, I also have ten years in service in the Armed Forces where I was trained on the proper use of these weapons, I want gun reform. But I want useful and lasting reform. This extreme policy of confiscation only plays to strengthen the far right argument, and if confiscations go through: it would be the first target of repeal by the next Republican administration, eroding any bi-partisan or non-partisan gun reform that could have a lasting positive effect. The assault ban should never have been lifted, but it was; and those who legally purchased firearms under it are entitled to their property. Phasing out these weapons starts with banning all future sales and resales. I want effective and well thought policy that respects both sides, not this inflammatory position that treats the right’s argument in the same respect as Donald Trump now treats the left. Use some goddam common sense

      Dusk194 the first and second amendments are inextricably linked. If you lose either you lose both.

    • As an independent voted and long time military service under the career of actually teaching fire arms handling and combat maneuvers, i feel like i should tell you that when you claim you want reform you should be more specific on what you think will help. I personally am against any restrictions to the 2nd amendment and trust me after 10 years of training some of the militaries worst students i still stand by this belief because of its true value in this country.

  13. Assault weapons have been illegal since 1986….

  14. I don’t own a gun.This sounds really good on a campaign but completely and totally unrealistic.

  15. So basically Beto wants to get law enforcement killed.

  16. Scientific Methodology | October 16, 2019 at 12:05 PM | Reply

    Beto better hope he doesn’t find out why we have a need for a 2A. He’s not very bright

  17. How about we teach some F`n gun safety…. nobody seems to want to do that.

  18. With Beta’s record, he probably can’t even pass a background check for a firearm.

  19. id love to debate anyone who agrees with a mandatory buy back.. feel free to message me here and lets see if your arguments can hold up

  20. he doesn”t know what he’s talking about…
