Nebraska House Candidate Advocates Assault Weapons Ban, Buyback Program

Progressive Nebraska House Candidate Advocates Assault Weapons Ban, Buyback Program (The Washington Free Beacon)

Democratic House candidate Kara Eastman said Monday that a gun buyback program would be "great" as part of larger gun control overhaul.

MSNBC host Katy Tur asked inquired about the assault weapons ban Eastman supports, leading Eastman to tout "common-sense gun safety regulation." Tur pressed her to answer what should be done about assault weapons specifically, and Eastman said she would support a buyback program.

"What do you think of the assault weapons already out there. Would you want them to be turned in?" Tur asked.

"I think if we could create some sort of buyback program, that would be great," Eastman answered.
