The National Rifle Association labeled presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke the “AR-15 salesman of the month” after he called for the confiscation of AR-15s and AK-47s.

The gun rights group suggested the former Texas congressman could even be the AR-15 salesman of the year.

“We will NEVER turn in our AR-15s. We are law-abiding Americans who fight to protect our Second Amendment so we can effectively defend ourselves, our communities, and our loved ones,” the NRA also tweeted in response to O’Rourke’s plan.

O’Rourke responded to the NRA’s tweet by pointing out firearm manufacturer Colt said they are halting the production of their AR-15s in order to fulfill military and law enforcement orders.

O’Rourke initially called for confiscating AR-15s and AK-47s during the third Democratic presidential debate.

“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47, we’re not going to allow it to be used on fellow Americans anymore,” he said at the time.


When asked about the enforcement of his plan, O’Rourke said he believes American gun owners will follow the law and turn them in. If not, then they will be fined in order to “compel” them to hand the rifles over to the government. He further told MSNBC his proposal is constitutional.

That’s the way to do it NRA! Logic, reason, adult dialogue does not work. It’s not worth the energy it might take to rationally challenge the irrational. Laugh at them, loudly and openly . . . with a copy of the Constitution in yer hand! ?
