Democrat 2020 hopeful, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, appeared on CNN with host Poppy Harlow. During the interview Gillibrand claimed she would arrest anyone who didn’t participate her bun buy back program. Gillibrand proposes to have a gun buy back program if she is elected president.

Harlow asked, “On the assault weapons issue, you have talked openly about being in favor of an assault weapons ban. I’m interested if you are supportive of a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons.”

Harlow continued, “Some have gone as far as to say not only should it be a mandatory buyback of assault rifles, but there should be criminal prosecution for those who don’t sell them back. Is that something you support?”

Gillibrand answered, “I think we should ban assault weapons as well as large magazines, and as part of passing that ban, do a buyback program across the country so that those who own them can be compensated for their money that they spent. But I think both of those ideas are strong.”

Gillibrand continued, “You don’t want people to retain them because if you make them illegal, you don’t want to grandfather in all the assault weapons that are all across America. You would like people to sell them back to the government so that you can make sure that people who shouldn’t have access to these weapons couldn’t have them.”

Gillibrand said, “The point is, you don’t want people using assault weapons, and so the point is if you are arrested for using an assault weapon, you’re going to have an aggravated felony. I mean, the whole point is when you make it a crime to own an assault weapon, then if you are found using it, that would be the issue.”
