Daniel Eisenstein, a student at Iowa State University and member of the College Republicans, took an opportunity to meet Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke in April. Eisenstein asked O’Rourke to define what an assault weapon is.


“A weapon designed for the purpose of killing people as effectively, as efficiently as possible,” O’Rourke said.

O’Rourke talked about the difference between a hand gun wound and an AR-15 wound.

“High impact, high velocity round — that’ll blow a hole out your back the size of an orange,” he said.

O’Rourke has called for a ban on assault weapons.
