Democrat Eric Swalwell — Use Nukes Against 2A Supporters?

Rep Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has a proposal for a gun buyback program (highly expensive for the entire nation), and suggested that if 2nd Amendment supporters wouldn’t turn in their guns, “it would be a short war” because “the government has nukes.” He says it was just “sarcasm.” And we thought Clinton, Waters, Booker, Holder, Pelosi, and their ilk had violent rhetoric?

He tweeted later:

America’s gun debate in one thread.

1) I propose a buy-back of assault weapons

2) Gun owner says he’ll go to war with USA if that happens

3) I sarcastically point out USA isn’t losing to his assault weapon (it’s not the 18th Century)

4) I’m called a tyrant

5) 0 progress

The zero progress part is that Mr. Swalwell in one moment threatens to investigate the President because Democrats hate him and think he’s dangerous, and in the next he tells someone that it’s “ludicrous” to think we need guns against the government. He doesn’t just sip the Kool-Aid, he’s been guzzling it.

There was immediate backlash against Rep Swalwell’s remark from several Twitter users:

“The USA” is us. You’re not included…your government office job not withstanding. Americans preserve and defend the Constitution FROM people like you. You’ve violated your oath. For Americans there is no “gun debate”. Shall not be infringed has no compromise position.”

“Secondary proposed gun debate:
1) you propose buying back our guns forcefully using 15m of OUR money. 2) we say “no thanks” and we will gladly defend the constitution against your tyranny. 3) you suddenly become the victim of bullying. 4) we laugh, and you hold hands w/ Hogg.”

“And what progress are we getting out of you?? There should be no debate, it is our 2nd Amendment right as US CITIZENS. Open your eyes and see what the real problem is MENTAL HEALTH. It’s like beating a dead horse with you anti-gun lunatics 🤦‍♀️ LISTEN & OPEN YOUR EYES!”

“Some people are just pure evil and want to cause harm to others. If you take guns away from law abiding citizens, how do you suppose we defend ourselves against those who have no regard for the law and also know that no one is armed except for police and military?”

“You weren’t being sarcastic you dolt, you were using that old and tired attempt to claim an armed citizenry wouldn’t stand a chance if the faceless army marched on them so they may as well give up their arms.”

“That’s because what you consider to be progress is the willful surrender by Americans of their liberties to YOU. Your idea of “societal utopia” is never going to work, we recognize this, so we’ll take a pass on your buy-back program.”

“You weren’t being sarcastic at all lol you absolutely mean for the government to forcibly remove weapons from citizens and if they were to fight back you’re idea is to nuke them or at least them with the attack. You’re a scumbag. You are a traitor.”

“You showed both ignorance AND a tyrannical side by even sarcastically suggesting that the military would involve itself in this matter. We in the military took an oath to the Constitution, not to Congress, and we’re not violating that oath to take guns from citizens.”

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
