The Daily Caller is reporting — correctly — that 2020 hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand told CNN’s Poppy Harlow Wednesday that she would support prosecuting citizens who chose not to participate in her mandatory buy-back of assault weapons.

@gillibrandny what color is the sky in your world? Surely you are not thinking we’re going to hand over to the government the last thing we could protect ourselves from the government?

Is she going to prosecute 50 million people all at the same time?

A perfect example of why the founders put the 2nd Amendment into our Constitution.

@SenGillibrand needs to surrender. She doesnt have a chance as getting elected dog catcher.

Like we said earlier, Gillibrand did say she’d be in favor of prosecuting those who don’t participate in her mandatory buy-back but watch how much trouble Harlow has trying to pry a straight answer out of Gillibrand — it’s infuriating.
“I believe we need to absolutely pass universal background checks as well as a federal anti-gun trafficking law,” 2020 presidential candidate @SenGillibrand tells @PoppyHarlowCNN. https://t.co/9EaZJc2lzV pic.twitter.com/lLyWbv6oHs

Universal background checks a) exist in CA and do nothing and b) undermine our civil rights in the #2A. Gillibrand is an idiot that's pandering to her equally uninformed, anti-gun base.

At least she didn’t promise to ban bump stocks.
‘This is pathetic’! Kirsten Gillibrand has shifted into pander overdrive in a desperate attempt to gain traction among 2020 Dems https://t.co/SZfy3v90NJ
