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.
