Struggling presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said he would use the criminal code to back up his proposal of confiscating AR-15s from law-abiding Americans.

The former Texas congressman elaborated on his policy in a CBS News interview:

"If we're able to pass mandatory buybacks and I'm able to sign that into law, then I fully expect our fellow Americans to turn in their AR-15s and their AK-47s."

O'Rourke continued, adding that there would be criminal consequences if people refused to give up their weapons:

"For anyone who does not and is caught in possession or seen in possession of one of these weapons of war — one of these instruments of terror, that weapon will be taken from them, and they will be fined."

"And if they should persist in continuing to use and to buy these weapons, then there will be other consequences in the criminal code," Beto added.

Last month, O'Rourke said that police wouldn't need to go "door to door" to confiscate firearms from citizens because Americans would comply with his mandatory gun buyback plan and surrender their weapons willingly.

O'Rourke said he didn't think law enforcement would have problems confiscating Americans’ guns because people would simply comply with the law.

Beto is calling for a change in the law that would mean law-abiding citizens would be legally forced to surrender their "assault rifles."

“I don’t see the law enforcement going door to door,” Beto told the Washington Examiner.

In September, during his opening statement at Thursday’s Democrat debate, O’Rourke said President Donald Trump was responsible for the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

Beto claimed the attack that killed 22 people shows “just how dangerous Donald Trump is.”

O'Rourke then said the El Paso shooter was “inspired to kill” by Trump:

“On August 3rd, in El Paso, Texas, two things became crystal clear for me, and I think produced a turning point for this country," Beto said.
