Second Amendment defenders took notice when Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) refused to answer a very important question about his plan to federally license all guns from law-abiding gun owners.
CNN's Poppy Harlow asked the presidential candidate if he endorsed imprisoning gun-owners who didn't comply with his plan quickly enough.
Booker simply dodged the question twice.
"Well first of all when I was a mayor of Newark, again, I have a record on dealing with gun violence. We did a lot of gun buy-backs and even other creative things I think we should have when I'm President of the United States," Booker responded. "The critical thing is I think most Americans agree that these weapons of war should not be on our streets."
"But, again, would you prosecute people?" Harlow pressed Booker. "Do you support the government buying them back and if not, potentially people could go to jail if they don't want to sell them back? Yes or no?"
"Again, we should have a law that bans these weapons and we should have a reasonable period in which people can turn in these weapons," Booker dodged.
"Right now we have a nation that allows in streets and communities like mine these weapons that should not exist," he added.
The CNN hosts let Booker off the hook without pushing him further on the controversial question.
