U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday that if elected President she plans to take executive action on gun control.

“If by my 100th day in office when elected President of the United States if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk to sign with all of the good ideas or any of the good ideas then I’m prepared to take executive action because that is what is needed,” she said.

Tapper asked what she specifically would take executive action on.

“Specifically, anyone who sells more than five guns a year will be required to perform background checks on the people they sell them to,” Harris answered. “And this will be the most comprehensive background check policy that has ever been had in our country thus far.”

Tapper followed up asking, “can that be done by executive order?”

Harris answered, “Yeah, yes it can. I’m also prepared to say and to direct the ATF to remove and take away the gun licenses of gun owners who fail to follow the law. And Jake 90 percent of the guns that are associated with crime have been sold by five percent of the gun dealers we need to take their licenses away.”

Watch:

The National Firearms Act already requires that licensed dealers conduct background checks. Harris appears to propose to consider anyone who sells five or more guns a “dealer.” It is unclear how the ATF will take away the licenses of people who are not licensed gun dealers.
