Democrat "Beto" O'Rourke has vowed that, if elected Texas governor, he will continue with his 2020 presidential campaign pledge to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.

Speaking during a CNN interview on Sunday, Beto revealed that he wants to confiscate Texans' legally-owned firearms if they elect him to be the state’s next governor.

He also refused to say that he wanted Democrat Joe Biden to campaign for him in the state.

"Gun control, in particular, was your number one issue in your presidential campaign,” host Dana Bash said in reference to O’Rourke’s failed 2020 run.

Bash then played a clip from one of the presidential debates where Beto famously declared:

"Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

"Is that what you would still do as governor of Texas?” Bash asked O’Rourke.

"Look, we are a state that has a long, proud tradition of responsible gun ownership,” O’Rourke said.

"And most of us here in Texas do want — do not want to see our friends, our family members, our neighbors shot up with these weapons of war.

"So, yes, I still hold this view.”


Bash later asked O’Rourke about whether he would want Biden to campaign for him in the state of Texas given the Democrat regime leader’s low approval rating.

"A recent poll shows, though, that just 35 percent of Texans approve of his performance,” Bash said.

"Would you like the president to come and campaign with you?”

"This campaign in Texas is not going to be about Joe Biden,” O’Rourke said.

"It’s not going to be about Donald Trump.

"It’s not going to be about anyone from outside of our state.

"This is going to be about the people of Texas and what the people of Texas want.

"And I have told you, they want the big things, like jobs, great schools, and making sure everyone can see a doctor.

"But they also want to see some competence in their government…”

"Does that mean that you would prefer that he not come, based on what you just said?” Bash pressed.

"It means that I’m focused on Texas and on my fellow Texans," he replied.

"Those are the people most important to me,” O’Rourke claimed.

"There’s no politician, there’s no other person from outside of this state who can help to change the course of this election for better or for worse.”
