He has come out now saying that he will not confiscate 'hunting rifles', but he will confiscate AR 15's.
What will he say when someone breaks the news to him that there are plenty of states where AR 15's are legal to use for hunting?

Grateful people have finally realized how ignorant Beto is on every single topic. AK47's have been banned for a long long time. Will someone please tell him on his staff. Only way to legally own one is if it's in a museum and non functional to my understanding and that requires a permit. AR-15 is not high powered. Smaller round and is not a battlefield weapon since it has no burst or full auto.
Whenever Obama commented on guns, the sales went sky high and so did membership in the NRA. So more guns and more money for gun advocating lobbyists so Beto is having the reverse impact on what he is trying to do on a grand scale. Probably worse than Obama so thanks. Bet he is singled handedly responsible for the sale of 100K's AR-15's this week. Maybe more.

There was post in there discussing the compliance rate with bans and buybacks in places like California(4%) and New Jersey(effectively 0%).
Those rates of compliance are dismally low. If Francis thinks he's gonna get Americans to give up their guns, and law enforcement to take them, he's in for a rude awakening.
"How will you confiscate the millions of AR 15s?"
Americans will comply with the law. It will be a mandatory buyback of AR-15 and AK-47s, weapons designed for war. Because we understand that theres no reason for a any of us to own a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. Especially when that kind of weapon is so often used to kill and terrorize people throughout this country — in their schools, in their grocery stores, in their churches, in their synagogues, at concerts... everywhere. I have met countless AR and AK owners who say they don’t need it to hunt, they don’t need it for self defense, it’s fun to shoot but would give it up. Because they also have kids and grandkids and want them to be safe.
He really cooked himself with this one.
I'm about as left-leaning as you like ( I'm Canadian for goodness sakes) and when he said that I was like, 'Welp! There goes your campaign!'.
Did he somehow forget that he was in America? And a Texan to boot?
That's like running for office in Russia and announcing that you're gonna take away vodka.
He ‘beto’-n the wrong horse and now he’s gonna...
