Democrat Beto O'Rourke is admitting that his earlier promise to take assault-style rifles from law-abiding citizens is a turnoff to many Texas voters. O'Rourke said he still believes nobody younger than 21 should be allowed to own an AR-15, an AK-47, or a similar gun. But he said an outright ban is unlikely in Texas. O'Rourke is challenging incumbent Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in the November 8th election. The latest polls have O'Rourke trailing Abbott by as much as nine-points.
