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

A quote from long ago but still very applicable and instructive:

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” — Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

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…
