Democrat Eric Swalwell claimed he was being ‘sarcastic’ when he responded to a Twitter user, saying that anyone who wouldn’t willingly surrender their ‘assault weapons’ could just be “nuked” by the government.
Many people wonder why so many people support the Second Amendment, and Swalwell’s comments bring home the very reason for that Constitutional right. The framers added that very important condition, not for self-defense, although that’s a good reason too, but because they knew that an unarmed population was essentially slaves.
The democrat from California has previously proposed “confiscation of semi-automatic rifles using $15billion of taxpayer dollars to do it and proposes criminally prosecuting those who don’t participate.”
Swalwell admitted it, writing, “She’s not lying. We should ban assault weapons by buying them back or restricting them to ranges/clubs.”
This, of course, was after the insane comments he made on Twitter, responding to Joe Biggs.
Biggs wrote, “So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your f*cking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power. https://t.co/bK1GVyjFej”

Swalwell, reminded the American citizen that if the government as represented by him wants his guns, it can take them anytime, because it could just use nuclear weapons against ‘resisters.’
The democrat responded, “And it would be a short war my friend. 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.”

Swalwell followed up with a bunch of “well, he started it!” posts, claiming that he was just kidding around with sarcasm.
However, to most people, it shows the deluded liberal mindset. Swalwell apparently thinks that the military would be willing to slaughter American citizens with mass murder and nuclear genocide. He also apparently believes that that genocide would be justified against a free culture that is exercising its right under the republic government.
He thinks that the ability to defy the government, as intended by the Second Amendment, is just legislation.
‘Common sense gun laws,’ do not make sense. Statistics have proven that time and again.
And even if disarming the entire population would ensure that no murders ever occur (it wouldn’t, take a look at London), the fact remains that Californians have elected a man who is patently ignorant of the reason behind the Constitution, and who is apparently more than willing to enslave his fellow man.
Of course, that shouldn’t surprise anyone. Democrats are the party of slavery, race politics, and other socialist-communist ideas.
In Maryland, a man was gunned down in his own home last week after police came to ‘confiscate’ his legally owned firearm because of the new ‘red flag’ law.
The fact that an elected official thinks it’s okay to enact mass genocide against anyone who doesn’t subscribe to his ‘law’ and ideas should worry everyone.
