DES MOINES, Iowa — A growing number of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are calling for a federal gun buyback program to reduce the estimated 400 million guns owned by civilians in America — but the idea faces resistance from gun rights groups who accuse Democrats of trying to “demonize firearms.”

In the wake of the deadly El Paso and Dayton mass shootings, some in the crowded Democratic field have released plans — or voiced support — for allowing gun owners to turn over their weapons to the government and get money in return.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a recent television interview, former Vice President Joe Biden called for a “national buyback program” to get firearms “off the street.” Asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper to respond to criticism he would be taking away people’s guns, Biden responded, “Bingo! You’re right, if you have an assault weapon.”

Former Obama administration official Julián Castro, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock are among those who have expressed support for some sort of buyback program.
