Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein elaborated on her aim for the U.S. "to explore what it means to disarm our police force," saying that it was something to look into in the future.

"We are in a violent society," Stein said on ABC's "This Week." "We're all being caught in the crossfire."

Stein was responding to ABC's George Stephanopoulos' asking about her statement in a Facebook live stream in July that we "need to explore what it means to disarm our police force because as a society we have become armed combatants, all of us."

Stephanopoulos said Stein was "saying things that no other candidates are willing to say," and asked how her plan would work "in a society where there are millions of guns."

"Exactly, which is why I used the term something to explore for the future," Stein said. "The context there really was talking about violence and police violence in particular ... It's important to see that it's not just police violence."

Stein is currently polling at about 4% nationwide.
