REPORT: Dem Who Called for Nuking Americans Opposed to Gun Ban Set For 2020 Run

H/T Flag And Cross.

One more clown for the 2020 DemocRat Clown Car.

SOUNDS LIKE A NICE GUY!

Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell of California is a typical progressive. He’s as liberal as they come.

In fact, Eric wants guns confiscated by any means. He even suggested nukingAmericans who fight back.

No joke.

From Daily Wire: 

Swalwell made the comment in response to a May news article on his radical plan that was widely recirculated on Twitter on Friday in which he called for a $15 billion government program to confiscate millions of guns from Americans.

So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.

@johncardillo

Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state.

These people are dangerously obsessed with power. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/dem-congressman-force-gun-owners-sell-assault-weapons-n871066

And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

Now, Swalwell may just announce a presidential run in the very near future – via Daily Wire:

According to The Atlantic, Swalwell wants to center his campaign around gun control, and will announce his run for the presidency next week on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

Looking to buttress any support he can get from younger voters, whom he has stated catalyzed his harsh stance on assault weapons, Swalwell has apparently enlisted Cameron Kasky, one of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in February 2018, to aid his efforts. According to The Atlantic, “Together, they’re organizing a town hall that Swalwell will host in Coral Springs, Florida, on Tuesday.”

The Atlantic’s Edward-Issac Dovere writes, “When I reached out to Swalwell on Wednesday evening, he wouldn’t confirm the news, but he didn’t leave much doubt that he intends to run for president. ‘We are doing a town hall in Parkland,’ he told me. ‘And I do believe that gun safety has to be a top 2020 issue.’”

A 2020 platform built on gun control, huh?

That’s not going to go over well, given that whole Second Amendment thing.

Swalwell must figure he’ll get a large book deal out of this whole thing, because he has to be smart enough to realize he doesn’t stand a chance against Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders – let alone President Trump.

What a complete joke.

More from Swalwell, who admitted to conservative Dana Loesch he wants to ban guns:

Rep. Eric Swalwell

@RepSwalwell

She’s not lying. We should ban assault weapons by buying them back or restricting them to ranges/clubs.

High ranking Democrat Eric Swalwell calls for confiscation of semi-automatic rifles using $15billion of taxpayer dollars to do it and proposes criminally prosecuting those who don’t participate: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/dem-congressman-force-gun-owners-sell-assault-weapons-n871066 #2A

Would you limit the ban and confiscation to semi-auto rifles or would you extend the ban to semi-auto handguns also, seeing as they’re illegally used many times over more in crimes such as homicide?

Rep. Eric Swalwell

@RepSwalwell

Fair question. Rifles. They’re more powerful and cause more carnage when used with a pistol-grip. See @ScottPelley @60Minutes piece. To reduce semi-auto pistol deaths I’d have universal background checks and mandatory reporting on mental health.

“If you don’t turn over your guns, we’ll nuke you” is definitely a reasonable argument to make.

@CR

It must not be against @Twitter TOS to casually insinuate that it’s better to give up our guns than die in a thermo-nuclear blast at the hands of the U.S. gov’t.

“You don’t need AR-15s because the government isn’t tyrannical, and, anyway, if you try to stop us taking them we will nuke you” is my favorite of all the gun control talking points.

I’m stunned there were enough sheep to vote so this guy ended up with a “Rep” in front of his name. The U.S. government is now going to nuke…….get this……..its own people.

Personally, I have a bigger problem with an elected official blithely talking about nuking his fellow Americans than my neighbor owning an AR-15. But YMMV.

You assume that members of our combined forces would follow unconstitutional orders, and take up arms against citizens of the United States. Short war indeed. .cc @DLoesch @KyleKashuv

AR-15s are so dangerous that we must nuke gun owners to confiscate them
