Kamala Harris Supports Mandatory Buyback of Assault Weapons

Buyback of “assault” weapons? Good luck with that Kamala. You and the rest of your brain-dead liberal cronies have about as much of a chance of that happening as rescuing a family of elves from an attack by a pride of lions in Midtown Manhattan.

These people are so full of it. Truthfully, I find it difficult to know which of these presidential candidates on the Left is more full of sh*t! TGO

(Bloomberg) — Kamala Harris said Friday she supports a mandatory buyback of military-style assault weapons, taking a more aggressive position than her main rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“I think it’s a good idea,” she told reporters after a campaign event in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

“We have to work out the details — there are a lot of details — but I do” support a forced buyback, Harris said when asked about the policy. “We have to take those guns off the streets.”

Harris’s higher-polling rivals Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren back banning sales of semi-automatic rifles like those used in recent mass shootings but stop short of calling for a forced buyback of guns already owned. Beto O’Rourke has said he would require owners of such weapons to sell them to the government.

A recent Quinnipiac poll found that 49% of Americans oppose a mandatory buyback of assault weapons while 46% favor the idea. But among Democrats, 71% support the idea while just 23% are against it.
