Democrat presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is making clear his proposed “assault weapons” ban would explicitly prohibit current possession of commonly owned semiautomatic rifles.

Swalwell tweeted this on Monday:

Swalwell has been pushing his “assault weapons” ban since May 2018. The plan basically includes banning future sales of semiautomatic rifles and mandating a government buyback of all such rifles already possessed by the American people. In November 2018, Swalwell suggested “nuking” gun owners who refused to comply with the ban, he then pivoted to a message of jail time for those who refuse to hand over their semiautomatic rifles.
