Dem Rep. Eric ‘Nuke ‘Em’ Swalwell says Democrat House eager to trample on Second Amendment rights

Responding to news that the House Judiciary Committee is set to hold a hearing on gun violence on Wednesday, February 6, Rep. Eric “Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell, the California Democrat who once suggested the government could use nuclear weapons if American citizens refuse to give up their guns, went on a Twitter rant essentially saying the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is eager to trample on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

“It’s Friday, so call me crazy, but I can’t wait for next week. On Wednesday, our @HouseJudiciary Committee will have the first hearing on gun violence in 8 years. A new Congress is putting your right to be safe over any other rights,” he said.

He wasn’t finished.

“For too long, an NRA-controlled Congress failed to pass common sense gun laws, instead allowing the most dangerous weapons to be in the hands of the most dangerous people. Predictably, thousands have died. & Congress would respond w/ moments of silence & zero moments of action,” he added.

He further stated:

“Those days are over. Your life matters. Your child’s freedom to learn without fear matters. Your ability to go to church without going through a metal detector matters. And young black men, who we lose every day in our cities to gun violence, matter.”

We’re not sure where the Constitution says we have a right to be safe, but it seems to us that the right to defend oneself and one’s family could be implied by the Second Amendment.

One person accurately noted:

Then there’s this question:


We agree…

Another person wondered:

We’d like to know the answer to that as well…

Another person reminds us just how radical and out-of-touch Democrats like Swalwell have become:


We have to agree wholeheartedly with Twitchy, which responded: “Don’t encourage him.”

Please don’t…
