Failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke doubled-down on his mandatory gun confiscation proposal this week; saying he would be prepared to send “law enforcement” to recover specific firearms from US citizens.
“There will be people that don’t turn the guns back in. What’s the next step?” asked MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’
“In any law that isn’t followed, there have to be consequences… In that case there would be a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm,” said Beto.

Sen. Cory Booker made similar comments earlier this month; saying the country needs a “mandatory buyback” program.
“Mandatory buyback or voluntary buyback?” asked the MSNBC moderator.
“This is another thing, to me, that’s just absurd… We’re talking about assault rifles. The overwhelming majority of Americans, over 75%, does not believe we should have weapons of war on our streets,” said Booker.
“You have a mandatory buyback program,” he added.
