O'Rourke Believes Americans Will Willingly Comply with Gun Confiscation, Won't Need Police
“No. I don’t see the law enforcement going door to door,” O’Rourke said in response to a question at the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention on Saturday.

“I see Americans complying with the law. I see us working with gun owners, non-gun owners, local, county, state, federal law enforcement to come up with the best possible solution. I have yet to meet an owner of an AR-15 who thinks it’s OK that we have these kind of mass killings in this country.”


AIUI, there hasn't been a single magazine turned into police, in response to New Jersey's latest ban.

I don't think these mass shootings are ok, but what does that have to do with confiscating firearms from the law abiding?

In the end Francis is an Idiot who would say anything to be the President.

Good thing Trump will say anything to keep him from being President. ;)

There isn't anyone that owns a tooth brush that is ok with people having tooth decay.

No one that owns a car is ok with people being killed by drunk drivers.

I have yet to meet an owner of an AR-15 who thinks it’s OK that we have these kind of mass killings in this country.

And I have yet to meet one who thinks they should be held responsible.
I will never apologize for being an American.

They can still claim victory by "assuming" that those not turned in were destroyed or shipped out of state. Of course, that's not entirely true. On a national level, that claim would be problematic. There would actually be a metric for success based on how many have been manufactured vs how many surrendered.
