Democratic 2020 hopeful Beto O'Rourke has suggested that there would be no need for his government to forcibly confiscate guns from violent criminals, such as mass shooters, because they will simply surrender their weapons willingly.

O'Rourke made the suggestion during a Wednesday CNN interview while discussing his proposed mandatory "buy-back" plan.

The former Texas congressman suggested that mass shooters will hand over their AR-15s under his plan.

O’Rourke went through his normal claims that he believes Americans will comply with the buy-backs by handing over their AR-15s and similar commonly owned semiautomatic rifles.

Host Carol Costello asked Beto: “You expect mass shooters to follow the law?”

“Our fellow Americans will follow the law, yes,” O'Rourke responded.

Costello countered: “Mass shooters … don’t follow the law — by definition.”

She added, “It doesn’t make sense that people are going to hand over their ‘assault weapons’ if they’re mass shooters.

"If they want to do harm to people, they’re not going to follow the law.”

The National Rifle Accosiation (NRA) shared the clip from the interview, describing Beto's confiscation scheme as "shocking."

"They kept reminding Beto that criminals don't follow laws and won't turn in their guns," the NRA said on Twitter.

"Beto refused to answer how he plans on carrying out his scheme.

"This came hours after Beto promised to go door-to-door."

O’Rourke responded to Costello’s line of questioning by suggesting that anticipated compliance with a legislative proposal ought not to be the litmus test for whether the proposal is adopted.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation calculates there are more than 16 million privately owned AR-15s in the United States.
