Eric Swalwell Unloads Gun Platform Liberals Really Want

The Daily Caller – by Robert Donachie

Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California wants to ban assault weapons, instate a federal gun buy-back program for those who own them and criminally prosecute those who refuse to hand them over.

The representative wrote an op-ed in USA Today Thursday rolling out what he feels is the gun control policy America should adopt, one that would take “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” away from law-abiding citizens and threaten them with jail time if they refuse.  

“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,” Swalwell wrote. “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.”

Swalwell is more bold in his statements than many of his Democratic colleagues. Many Democrats support stronger background checks, which a great number of Republican lawmakers also support, banning bump stocks and other measures.

Lawmakers are trying to answer the public calls for legislative fixes to gun violence in the wake of Texas, Nevada and Florida shootings. Responding to those calls, House lawmakers proposed $2.3 billion in March toward funding mental health, additional training, and school safety programs at the Departments of Justice, Education and Health and Human Services.

  1. Another name added to the extremely long list of those headed for the gallows. Wow, but you got to admire his willingness to stand and declare his treason and outright criminality against a free people, I just love the ones that do that kind of thing…..

    People like him will scurry to the shadows when this shit jumps off. They must really see themselves as some fkn SS officer going out and standing the background while their goose steppers forcibly take guns from us… and somehow they believe this can actually happen…

    Australia has really given these scum some hope that it is possible to do it… we say again and again…what the fk are you waiting for…pass your laws and then come do it…..

  2. Let’s see you come and take them Swalwell
    Big talking small balled mtherfcker !

    Dream on pedo

    The only reason why these types want our guns is because we’re finding out that his team is kidnapping and raping our children

  3. What goes around (in this case, the crap he’s trying to push), comes around.

    It will come back to haunt him when he least expects it. There will be many to make sure of it.

  4. california is as california does but…..

    where will this really come down?





    any guesses?

  5. What the Party of Evil (Democrat) wants is a total confiscation of ALL firearms from the general public. And the will get help from the RINOs in the Jelly Fish Party (Republican). Both parties have contempt for the citizens of this former Republic.

    They want to f!@k, harass and create felons out of law abiding citizens, and at the same time defend, condone and give benefits to those who are here illegally (which makes them felons).
    Again to be a democrat is to be evil.

  6. Aside from agreeing pretty much with all the comments above, I have a question…since when did the name “Eric/Erik” become so associated with evil? (This guy, and Schmidt, Prince, Crouch and so many others now I can’t even remember them all…)
    Note: the lead character.lead singer of the band in my books is named Erik. So I am curious.
