Gillibrand suggests support for mandatory buyback of assault weapons
All of the roughly two dozen Democrats vying to challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s election have called for some version of an assault weapons ban, with many favoring a voluntary federal buyback program for gun owners who choose to relinquish their firearms.
The mandatory buyback proposal — which critics denounce as tantamount to gun confiscation — was most forcefully championed in the Democratic primary by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who established gun violence as one of the defining issues of his campaign before exiting the race in July.
Apart from Gillibrand, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told POLITICO earlier this month he supports a mandatory buyback program. Sen. Cory Booker also appeared to advocate for the measure when asked about it in May, telling CNN: “We should have a law that bans these weapons, and we should have a reasonable period in which people can turn in these weapons.”

But then there's this aspect.... How can a "Buyback Program" be a buyback when they weren't sold by the government? Illegal forced forfeiture is what they should be stating. Buyback my a$$..
Buyback Defined: the buying back of goods by the original seller.
I don't know who wrote this below, but I do know every elected official should read it:

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.
Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.
The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.
Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”
Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.
Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.
And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.

This my friends is just another lesson of history trying to repeat itself. Our government today is no less tyrannical or out of control than was that of good ole King George...

It’s going to take the III%’ers once again to right things and give this great nation a second birth of the representative republic it was intended to be...
