2020 Dem Swalwell Would Send Gun Owners to Prison If They Didn’t Turn Over ‘Assault Weapon’ After Proposed Ban

2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate and California Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he would send gun owners to prison if they did not comply with a proposed ban and turn over “assault weapons” to the government.

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, Swalwell — the California congressman who threw his name into the ring for the Democratic presidential nomination last week — was asked if people who chose to defy his proposed ban and buyback of “assault weapons” would go to jail for not complying.

Swalwell answered that “they would” before bringing up the “alternative” of leaving the weapons at a “hunting club” or a “shooting range.”

"Tapper: Criminal prosecution for anyone keeping assault weapons. What’s the punishment for people who don’t hand in their guns? Do they go to jail?

Swalwell: Well, Jake, they would, but I also offer an alternative which would be to keep the weapons at a hunting club or a shooting range. And the reason I’ve proposed this is because these weapons are so devastating — I’ve seen this as a prosecutor in the cases that I’ve prosecuted."
