Another Democrat has joined Robert Francis O'Rourke in calling for gun confiscation.

On CNN Newsroom on Monday, Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) said he agrees with O'Rourke on a mandatory buyback of certain guns. 

Espaillat said, "I agree with Beto. I think that we should not be playing this very conservative approach with regards to a weapons ban, with background checks, with…the whole array of bills that are on way to be passed and are supported by the American people. First, it’s background checks. I think 80-plus percent of the American people support it. But I think next is an assault weapons ban."
