“I think it’s a good idea,” she said when asked about mandatory buybacks.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Deputy Chief of Staff Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, and Cedric Richmond, director of the Office of Public Engagement, all said before they were hired that they supported forcing U.S. citizens to surrender some firearms, FOX News reported.
“That’s something I would not rule out. These are weapons of mass destruction,” Richmond said in 2019 when he was asked about mandatory buybacks.
He was a congressman from Louisiana at the time he made the remarks, according to FOX News.
“So if it is a buyback, then I’m all for it,” Richmond explained. “If it’s a mandatory buyback, I think then you may run into some complications, but the thought of it does not offend me, and it sounds like something I could support.”
