Trump noted that Biden had previously said he would put O’Rourke “in charge of gun policy,” adding, “Crazy Beto… He’s in charge of the Second Amendment and you won’t have a Second Amendment.”
“Frankly, you wouldn’t have a Second Amendment if I didn’t get elected. It would have been obliterated, it would be have torn up, maybe it would have been totally knocked out, but there’s tremendous pressure on your Second Amendment. As long as I’m here you’ll always have a Second Amendment,” Trump added.
During the September 12, 2019, Democrat primary debate, O’Rourke openly admitted, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” Two weeks later, he tweeted about a community college attack in Christiansburg, Virginia, using it to push for AR-15 confiscation, despite the fact that the shooter in Christiansburg used a shotgun: “We have to get these weapons, like the AR-15s and the AK-47s, out of hands that never should have been able to have them.”
