JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): [Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke] said it, right there -- “You know what? If you have a gun that's made for the battlefield, you shouldn't have it in your home," and he explained his position. And I think that's not only you saw the response from the audience, Dana, the other people on stage all said “Beto, you did a great job." 

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): So, you think that people going door to door taking legally purchased weapons is a good idea?

WILLIAMS: No, no, no. I think -- look, that's fear mongering, talking about “Oh, you got to go door to door" --

WATTERS: Because that's actually going to cause more violence. 


WATTERS: This is going to cost more lives than mass shootings would cost. 

WILLIAMS: No, come on --

WATTERS: You're kidding me? You are going to go to people and say, “Hey, hand it over, give it the hell to me?"
