Democrat presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke is making a production of his promise to confiscate “weapons of war” like AR-15 rifles and similar semi-automatic firearms.

O’Rourke reiterated his promise that “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15” if elected during the Democratic presidential debate last week, after repeatedly making the same claim in the media in the weeks prior.

The gun-grabbing hysteria prompted an Arizona firearms dealer to offer a new “Beto Special” on AR-15s with “such a low price that EVERY AMERICAN can afford one,” and the response has been overwhelming.

“Our $349.99 AR deal sold out in less than 4 hours,” Alpha Dog Firearms posted to Facebook last week. “We’re trying to process the orders and work on getting more special deals for our good friend gun grabber Beto.”

The retailer has since expanded the sale with the promo code “BETO” on seven different firearms, which is good for as much as $200 off some models of alleged assault weapons. The $349 deal, however, was a limited time offer.
