California Democrat Threatens “Nukes” If Americans Don’t Hand Over Their Guns
California Democrat Threatens “Nukes” If Americans Don’t Hand Over Their Guns from ZeroHedge
TDC Note – We told you back in May of this year how dangerous this man is to the American people. We had no idea he would actually threaten to kill American citizens if they didn’t turn in their lawful weapons. This is almost unbelievable.
In this two part segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight Eric Swalwell, Democrat, Congressman 15th District of California demonstrates for the world just how out of touch, lacking in facts and, most importantly, his depth of disdain and contempt for the Constitution and American people he carries into office everyday. It is breathtaking during the first segment and then Swalwell doubles-down during the second part. Even my wife was shocked at the words coming out of this mans mouth on live TV. ~Eric Swalwell – Everything That’s Wrong With CONgress

Well that escalated quickly…
Just days after taking back the House, a Democratic Congressmen has proposed outlawing “military-style semi-automatic assault weapons” and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution.
In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”
Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons – and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”
As NBC News reports, this is a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms; as in the past, Democrats and gun safety groups have carefully resisted proposals that could be interpreted as ‘gun confiscation’, a concept gun rights groups have often invoked as part of a slippery slope argument against more modest proposals like universal background checks.
And sure enough Swalwell’s egotistical over-reach – going full “Australia” – prompted anger across social media. But it was one particular thread that caught our eye…
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.
