Conservative and gun rights activists claimed that the then Congressman A. “Gun possession” If elected, and O’Rourke did little to allay their concerns, he famously announced that the Americans had their rifles confiscated. “Exactly what we’re going to do … Americans who have AR-15s, AK-47s, have to sell them to the government.”
