Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) left Americans stunned on Friday when he argued the U.S. government would win a “short” war against gun owners who resisted gun confiscation with nuclear weapons.
Swalwell was responding to a tweet from conservative activist Joe Biggs criticizing the Democrat’s call for a $15 billion gun confiscation program in the United States.
“So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get,” Biggs tweeted. “You’re outta your f***ing mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.”
“And it would be a short war my friend,” Swalwell responded. “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.”
Biggs was quite literally stunned.
“So our government would nuke its own country in order to take guns? Wow,” he shot back.
The NBC article cited by Biggs is just as concerning as Swalwell's tweet.
"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,'" the report states.
Swalwell wants the government to offer "$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," the report adds.
Democrats are dangerous to the freedom of Americans.
