GA Dem Senate Candidate Slams Beto’s Gun Ban Plan

Via The Washington Free Beacon:

Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Teresa Tomlinson reiterated her support for an “assault weapons” ban in a new interview, but said a confiscation scheme like that proposed by presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was neither possible nor lawful.

On WGAU’s “Mission: TimPossible” podcast, host Tim Bryant noted O’Rourke’s pronouncement that his hypothetical administration would confiscate semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 and AK-47 through a “mandatory” buyback program.

Asked for her thoughts, Tomlinson distanced herself from O’Rourke, despite previously lavishing praise on him on social media.

“I don’t know Beto O’Rourke obviously, but I can only imagine the trauma that they’ve experienced with the murders there,” Tomlinson said. “I do not, however, believe that confiscation is possible or lawful, and that’s my lawyer background talking there.”
