As plenty of people have made clear every time Eric Swalwell tweets about his plan for a mandatory gun buy-back, the government can’t buy back something it didn’t sell you, so the term itself is misleading.
But speaking of misleading, check out Amy Klobuchar as she explains how gun confiscation isn’t really gun confiscation:

Klobuchar says mandatory buybacks somehow aren't gun confiscation. She just straight up misleads and says people would have some sort of choice which is not true. Mandatory buyback are mandatory.

Does Klobuchar know that a lot of gun "buyback" proposals are mandatory, i.e. confiscation?
— Mark Hemingway (@Heminator) June 27, 2019
Nope. I seriously doubt it.
— Sue Spofford (@salsanbluechips) June 27, 2019
She thinks that if you get paid for your gun it isn’t confiscation?
— Kyle Smith (@rkylesmith) June 27, 2019
Did you hear what she said? They'd be given "an opportunity" in a buyback. That was it. What's left hanging, huh?

No, no, she just promised that it would be voluntary! Like our income tax system.

You can't buy back what you never owned

Better question is if she cares

She only cares if it affects Uncle Dick in his tree stand.
Klobuchar says her line on gun control is going too far is "does it hurt my Uncle Dick?"

Klobuchar says when she looks at gun proposals, her test is: "Does this hurt my uncle Dick in his deer stand."

“Does it hurt my Uncle Dick?” is my new ethical yardstick too

Personally, I’m always thinking about Uncle Dick and his deer stand.

Does Sen. Klobuchar really have an uncle named Dick? ?
— Shadi Hamid (@shadihamid) June 27, 2019
I ask this question as well, Amy: "Does this hurt my uncle dick?"

Also, $100 says a magazine profiles Uncle Dick in the next month

Klobuchar bases her gun policies on what will impact her uncle Dick….
