California Democrat Congressman Rep. Eric Swalwell wants your guns. He wants to “buy them back” and actively go after anyone who resists having them taken. It’s the dream of the Democrats to be able to confiscate your guns, and Mr. Swalwell laid it out for all to see in a USA opinion piece on May 3.
“Ban assault weapons and buy them back. It might cost $15 billion, but we can afford it. Consider it an investment in our most important right, the right to live…
Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004 would prohibit manufacture and sales, but it would not affect weapons already possessed. This would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.
Instead, we should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.”
He stated he is “haunted” by an autopsy report he read while serving as a prosecutor. That’s nothing compared to what it will be like if his plans are put into effect.
The “Assault weapons ban of 1994” that he is so quick to tout, had mixed reviews. The statistics used to claim it was “effective” were extremely flawed. People will get around any ban because bans don’t save lives. It’s the heart of the person behind the gun, not the gun.
“The ban’s backers will have once again succeeded in frustrating gun owners with pointless, feel-good regulations, while saving no lives.” Jon Stokes, Ars Technica
Democrat Congressman, @RepSwalwell, proposes gun confiscation bill.
Would imprison anyone who does not surrender their “assault rifle.”https://t.co/cHckQyleMb

Here’s someone who has it straight:
So Dems think Trump is a Tyrant…
So they want to take guns (and the ability to resist tyranny) away from We The People…
And ensure only the gov (under Trump??) will be the only ones with guns…
Did I miss anything?https://t.co/kMorJM15J0
