Dem Senator chides Beto for gun confiscation debate comment



During a Friday interview on CNN, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) warned 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke about the dangerous road he’s going down when he calls for a ban on all semi-
automatic AR-15s. Specifically, Coons is afraid O’Rourke’s words will be used against the Democratic Party for years to come.

“I frankly think that that clip will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying that Democrats are coming for your guns,” he told hot Poppy Harlow. “I don’t think having our presidential candidates, like Congressman O’Rourke did, say that we’re going to try to take people’s guns against their will is a wise policy or political move.”

“I don’t think a majority of the Senate or the country is going to embrace mandatory buybacks. We need to focus on what we can get done,” Coons said.

Coons has partnered with colleague Pat Toomey (R-PA) to reintroduce the NICS Denial Notification Act. If passed, the bill would require federal authorities to alert local law enforcement agencies about a prohibited possessor attempting to purchase a firearm.

Toomey took to Twitter to say he agrees with Coons’ assessment of the situation:

Beto, however, hit back at Coons for his criticism:

Coons gets it. Gun owners are protective of our Second Amendment rights. We want to make sure our right is sacred. When there are people, like Beto, running for office who explicitly say, “We’re coming for your guns,” Democrats no longer have anything to grasp. They can no longer use the talking point, “No one is trying to take your guns away.”
