"The View" co-host Meghan McCain, during a gun-control argument Tuesday with her co-hosts, declared that she was not living without firearms.

McCain ripped a plan for a mandatory assault-weapons buyback by Democratic presidential candidate and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

"If you're going to be a gun-grabber, you don't get my vote," she promised, according to a clip from the show posted on Twitter.

However, co-host Joy Behar noted that former Democratic presidents passed stronger gun restrictions, including President Bill Clinton and his assault-weapons ban in 1994.

"Democrats, when they're in office, they do do something about guns," Behar said. "So, if you keep rooting for Republicans, you're going to get nothing done."

McCain then contended that stripping Americans of assault weapons would lead to violence.

"The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America," she said. "If you're talking about . . . going and taking people's guns away from them, there's going to be a lot of violence."

Behar said, "They lived without them for many years during the ban."

"I'm not living without guns," McCain vowed. "It's just that simple."

"What about living without the assault weapons that are killing our children?" asked another co-host, Sunny Hostin.

Over the weekend, seven people were killed in a mass shooting outside a movie theater in Odessa, Texas — and 31 people died in gun attacks in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
