Flashback: Amy Klobuchar Claims Mandatory ‘Buy Backs’ Isn’t Gun Confiscation
Gun control is a major issue for the 2020 presidential elections.
The modern-day Democrat Party has become so radicalized on the issue that even alleged “moderates” such as Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar have endorsed mandatory gun buybacks.
The Washington Examiner covered the first 2020 Democratic primary debate back in June 26, 2019, when Senator Klobuchar tried to claim that a mandatory buyback would not feature gun confiscation.
“Gun confiscation, right, if the government is buying back, how do you not have that conversation?” moderator Chuck Todd questioned.
“Well, that’s not gun confiscation because you give them the offer to buy back their gun,” Klobuchar explained.
“I look at these proposals and I say, ‘Does this hurt my uncle Dick and his deer stand?’ coming from a proud hunting and fishing state? These ideas don’t do that,” she continued.
Klobuchar has expressed support for implementing a ban on “assault weapons” and universal background checks.
Klobuchar recently came in third place during the New Hampshire primary.
