During Thursday evening’s Democratic debate, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) called for a buy-back program to take assault rifles off the streets of America.
“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore,” O’Rourke said.
His campaign tweeted out the same line.
But Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain, a Republican, replied to the proposal with an ominous warning.
“My AR is ready for you,” he said.
