Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a 2020 contender, said people who refuse to turn in their military-style assault weapons after his proposed ban would go to jail.
He also said owners would be able to store their rifles in a gun club or a firing range.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked Swalwell: “You wrote last year ‘We should ban possession of military style assault weapons. We should buy back such weapons by all who choose to abide by the law, and should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.’ Criminal prosecution for keeping assault weapons, what’s the punishment for people who don’t hand in their guns, do they go to jail?”

“Well, Jake, they would, but I also offer an alternative, which would be to keep them at a hunting club or a shooting range and the reason I’ve propose this, is because these weapons are so devastating,” Swalwell replied. [Emphasis added]
