On Wednesday Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) addressed Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s confiscatory push on AR-15s and made clear, “[He’s] not taking my guns away from me.”

Manchin then asked for someone to deliver that message to O’Rourke.

The Wall Street Journal’s Lindsey Wise tweeted:

Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke used the September 12, Democrat debate to tell AR-15 owners, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke’s declaration was a game-changer which showed the Democrats’ intention to seize guns.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation reports there are 16 million-plus privately owned AR-15s in the U.S.
