One politician who threatened to “nuke” gun owners just made a terrifying demand

Just months after insinuating the government would “nuke” those who refuse to comply with gun control laws, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) announced he’s running for president.

His radical gun control agenda goes above and beyond even some of the most extreme Democrats.

And the terrifying demand he just made will make any gun owner’s blood run cold.

Rep. Eric Swalwell officially announced his campaign for president on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

In his announcement, he put enacting radical gun control front and center.

And in an op-ed published in USA Today, he expands on exactly what he meant.

Titled, “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” he describes a situation that should horrify any gun owner.

When Swalwell refers to “assault weapons,” he’s talking about virtually all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, which are the most popular firearms on the market today.

Instead of banning new sales, he also lays out a massive operation to pick up every single one, at a cost upwards of $15 billion.

In announcing his intention to ban possession of these firearms, his proposal would go even further than the infamous “assault weapons” ban under former President Bill Clinton.

As he writes in USA Today:

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.

This comes after Swalwell told a pro-gun activist that, if there is resistance, the government has “nukes” to use against defiant gun owners.

Rep. Eric Swalwell would be the most radical anti-gun president in history.

He has no regard for the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, and is willing to outright say he’s fine with killing them, if need be, to see his radical anti-gun “utopia” come to fruition.

    This man is a toting ignaramous. He has dropped out of the race for the Presidency. He really should keep his mouth shut.

    One thing that people today ALWAYS seem to forget: One of the reasons our Founders thought it was so important to formalize the Right to Weapons in the 2nd Amendment was that they, themselves, had to defend themselves against THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT. The 2nd Amendment was not penned to protect our hunting rights or even for self defense protecting our homes, this Right was preserved so that, in the event their decendents ever found themselves in the same position, they too, could protect themselves from their own government. I am NOT advocating “revolution” or even minor violence, I am simply pointing out an Historical Fact. Keep America Great!!!

    Mark Hopkins: No, I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am an independent, what some people call a “radical moderate”. I abhor communists, right-wing fascists and extremism of all sorts. I abhor intemperate language, violence and calls to violence. As part of approach to politics, I weigh each issue on its merits – and strongly dislike sweeping generalizations about Democrats calling them the epitome of all evil and the same about Republicans, the epitome of all evil or conversely regarding supporters of either party, as the ultimate in all goodness and righteousness. For America to ever be great, it is necessary to work with all people – although one can never please the extremists on the issues., Calls to Civil War is an absolute abomination in my mind and certainly counterproductive to making America a Great Country.

  9. Mark Hopkins says:

    LMAO! OK Roman, you go ahead and take the high ground. I guess my opposing point of view isn’t covered by the first amendment because I’m not a liberal. Are you a “democrat” Roman, cause you sure don’t sound like a conservative? If you’re a “democrat” you ARE a communist. They’ve proven themselves to be communists time and time again, and not “just” communists, but also fascist totalitarians. They’re the ones starting the trouble, maintaining it and then whining and crying when true Americans fight back. DemocRATs have proven beyond the shadow of doubt they are mentally ill mental midgets with no true compassion or empathy for anyone except themselves, and that’s actually just greed and a lust for power. I’ll take my chances any day with armed conservative American citizens over the stinking demonRATS, “government” or “citizens”.

    You are right, they didn’t invade America bc they knew that every Americans were armed…over my dead body they take my guns

  11. Roman Hruby says:

    Mark Hopkins: For your information, I am no communist and I strongly oppose communism. But, with your intemperate language, devoid of logic, not to mention respect for opposing points of view (protected by the First Amendment). I do not intend to have any further conversations with you – as I don’t want to stoop to your level of name calling.

  12. Mark Hopkins says:

    My intellectual capacity is just fine Roman, I’m just impervious to your type of “logic”. Your right about the “respectful manners” part. I definitely don’t respect communists that are hell bent on destroying our nation. In fact, when the SHTF, I fully intend to show you commies just how disrespectful I can be.

  13. Roman says:

    Mark Hopkins: As I said earlier, you are offensive, you don’t have respectful manners, are impervious to logic, and you do not have the capacity to hold an intelligent discussion. It is my waste of time to discuss anything with you.

  14. Mark Hopkins says:

    Well Roman, you keep harping on my intellectual capacity. I’d venture to say it’s far above yours. At least I’m not a communist moron that wants to disarm all Americans and leave them at the mercy (or lack thereof) of a totalitarian communist government and all the criminals that will still have theirs. I’ve done a lot of things in my life that I’d be willing to bet are far above your pay grade. You just have your panties in a bunch because I call you commies on your stupidity and insubstantial “facts”. So you see, you’re calling me “stupid” by calling into question my “intellectual capacity”. I don’t dance around technicalities, I’ll just call you stupid outright, and as I said before, I don’t have “discussions” with communist morons.

  15. Roman says:

    Mark Hopkins: Your comments and your attitude just prove that you don’t have the intellectual capacity to hold an intelligent discussion. Not only do you get into offensive name calling, but you make totally false allegations, as a diversion tactic, and do not stick to the issues being discussed. You just proved that trying to discuss with you anything is just an absolute waste of time.

  16. Roman says:

    Mark Pearson: Thank you for letting me know. It was an insightful comment by Carl Thomas. I had not been aware that it was he who made it. However, it has influenced my thinking and my behavior when I hear or read abusive offensive comments and name-calling.

  17. Blue says:

    He didn’t Lose the argument he only disagrees with you, You name called him with your judgement talk, seems like he’s got your number.

  18. Mark Hopkins says:

    I don’t have discussions with communists. I’m not “politically correct” and never will be. There is no win or lose in these posts as neither side will convince the other. You can say anything you want to about me, you’ve got that right. I’ve also got that right. When you idiots finally get your communism, you may find that having is not as satisfying as wanting. I personally don’t give a rats ass what you commies think, except as it impacts freedom loving TRUE AMERICANS. Yes, I hate all of you, because you won’t stop until we do have a civil war. The next one is going to be on you “democRATS” just like the first one.
