“Hell, yes; we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47.” Beto O’Rourke, September 12, 2019

“I want to be clear: That’s exactly what we’re going to do. Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell their assault weapons. All of them. It is not voluntary, I want to be sure we make the distinction here, it is mandatory. It will be the law. You will be required to comply with the law.” — Beto O’Rourke. September 2019

“My AR is ready for you Robert Francis.” — Texas Republican Representative Briscoe Cain

Behind Every Blade of Grass

“You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.” — NRA slogan, famously used by Charlton Heston in 2000.

“I own an AR-15. A lot of our listeners out there own AR-15s. Why should we not have one? To be clear, they should have them. If you purchased that AR-15, if you own it, you should get to keep it.” — Beto O’Rourke, April 2018
