White House hopeful Kamala Harris is open to confiscating as many as 10 million guns.

Sen. Harris (D-CA) made the provocative claim when asked by MSNBC host Craig Melvin how she'd get existing "assault weapons" out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.

The 1994 Assault Weapons Ban did not include a mandatory gun buyback program. 

The Daily Caller's William Davis reports:

“We have to have a buyback program,” Harris said. “I support a mandatory buyback program. It’s gotta be smart. We gotta do it the right way.”

Harris estimated that there are currently 5-10 million “assault weapons” in the U.S., but did not mention any specific type of firearm her administration would target.


Harris is one of several Democratic presidential candidates to have endorsed a gun confiscation program. The freshman California senator told NBC’s Jimmy Fallon last month that she supported a “buy-back” program in order to get “weapons of war” off the streets.

“First of all, let’s be clear about what assault weapons are they have been designed to kill a lot of human beings quickly,” she said at the time. “They are weapons of war with no place on the streets of a civil society.”
