In the wake of multiple mass shootings, members of the Democrat Party have amped up their calls for gun control. This surge of gun control advocacy extends to left-wing 2020 presidential candidates; many of these candidates are supportive of stricter background checks, voluntary buybacks, and in some cases, mandatory buybacks.
2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke has not minced words when it comes to his agenda to confiscate the guns of lawful citizens. In his own words, “hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15.”
O’Rourke is now profiting from this one-liner by selling t-shirts with the controversial phrase. Last week, O’Rourke furthermore alleged that Texans are OK with turning over their AR-15s to the government.

Conservatives and other right-wingers have expressed consistent opposition towards gun control measures. Those on the right maintain that criminals don’t follow gun control laws and that such regulations will only complicate matters for lawful citizens. Nevertheless, the Democrat Party continues to profess that gun control is the answer.
