[Ed. – Now, if he’d acknowledge his own plans on various topics are unconstitutional too.]

Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said during a Sunday exchange with an undecided Iowa voter that a mandatory gun-buyback program is unconstitutional.

“A mandatory buyback is essentially confiscation, which I think is unconstitutional,” Sanders said. “It means that I’m going to walk into your house and take something whether you like it or not. I don’t think that stands up to constitutional scrutiny.” …

Sanders’s campaign website proposes several measures to address gun violence including expanding background checks, prohibiting the purchase of high-capacity magazines, and banning the sale and distribution of “assault weapons” to civilians. The site also blasts the National Rifle Association as “a partisan lobbying public-relations entity for gun manufacturers” and calls for an end to its “corrupting effect on Washington.”
