Dem. Eric Swalwell Suggests Feds Should Use Nuclear Bombs on Gun Owners Who Won’t Turn in Guns

Congressman Eric Swalwell went on a Twitter tear on Friday to push his idea of confiscating guns only to end his “debate” by suggesting that the U.S. government should use nuclear weapons against gun owners who resist having their firearms confiscated.

Swalwell, who has been making noise about running for President in 2020, published an op-ed under his name in USA Today, Friday, in which he suggested that guns be banned and the government then “go after resisters.”

In the anti-gun screed, the California Democrat (where else) advises the following:

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.

Swalwell admitted that his absurd “buy back” plan of paying $1,000 per gun would likely cost the country $15 billion — the main reason it would never happen.

But he claimed it could be “paid for” by eliminating President Trump’s tax cuts. Essentially, he suggests that Americans should be taxed to death and the economy stifled in order to use the money to gut the Second Amendment.

Swalwell spent much of Friday on Twitter defending his anti-Constitutional ideas, but at one point he suggested that the government should nuke any gun owner who disagrees with his policy plan.

In a Tweet by entrepreneur Joe Biggs (who runs a business selling pro-gun apparel), Swalwell was warned that there could be a “war” between gun owners and authorities fanning out to confiscate guns if the Congressman’s idea were adopted.

To that tweet, Rep, Swalwell replied that he had the upper hand.

In his reply, the anti-Constitution Democrat, Eric “Duke Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell, suggested that the federal government launch nuclear weapons against Americans who refuse to knuckle under to his authoritarian rule.

Perhaps this will not surprise you considering the fact that it is the Democrats who are the fascists in society today.
