California Democrat Threatens “Nukes” If Americans Don’t Hand Over Their Guns

8261

Well that escalated quickly…

Just days after taking back the House, a Democratic Congressmen has proposed outlawing “military-style semi-automatic assault weapons” and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution.

In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”

Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons – and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”

As NBC News reports, this is a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms; as in the past, Democrats and gun safety groups have carefully resisted proposals that could be interpreted as ‘gun confiscation’, a concept gun rights groups have often invoked as part of a slippery slope argument against more modest proposals like universal background checks.

And sure enough Swalwell’s egotistical over-reach – going full “Australia” – prompted anger across social media. But it was one particular thread that caught our eye…

John Cardillo, ‘America Talks Live’ host on Newsmax, tweeted in response:Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state. These people are dangerously obsessed with power.”

 

Which prompted a further response from Joe Biggs, a combat vet,So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.”

 

To which Rep. Swalwell decided to reply – in a not tyrannical-sounding way at all… 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.”

 

“So our government would nuke its own country in order to take guns? Wow,” Biggs responded.

“Don’t be so dramatic. You claiming you need a gun to protect yourself against the government is ludicrous. But you seem like a reasonable person. If an assault weapons ban happens, I’m sure you’ll follow law,Swalwell tweeted back.

And after the furor exploded, Swalwell quickly resorted to the “it was sarcasm” excuse.

Now the question is – who will Twitter ban? The conservative-leaning 2nd Amendment-protector raising his ‘social media’ above the pulpit; or the liberal politician who is threatening to unleash nukes on domestic soil in order to ensure the citizenry follow his demands and hand over their means of defense?

To be continued…

    • Don Cook,love your comment i am a Vietnam Combat Veteran and i would fight for my country once again.And it would be against anyone that tries to take my 2nd amendment away from me and it’s the SS Democrat Nazi Party that i am talking about they are nothing but Traitors and corrupt crooked MORONS.

    • LefTards don’t research anything. And they don’t care what the TRUTH us, as evidenced by all the lying, cheating VOTER FRAUD in nearly every district across America…all those miraculous ballots found…ALL IN FAVOR OF THE ROTTEN-TO-THE-CORE DEMONRATS!!!

      The first step in GENOCIDE is removing the ability of people to protect themselves.

      LEFTISTS, DEMONRATS, MOSLEMS, GLOBALISTS ALL have the same goal…KILL ANYONE WHO DOES NOT SUBMIT TO THEIR PROPAGANDA!!!

      • Michel C. Very aptly said. Especially, the second point: “The first step in Genocide is removing of the ability of people to protect themselves. Hitler and the Nazi Regime all over again. Ignorance of history has proven that history is circular and repeats itself. Our current generation – Millenials are a generation ignorant of history, thanks to the previous administration and deterioration of our educational system into common core and ideologies of Marxism and Socialism being taught beginning with preschool through college and our values as “One Nation Under GOD” gradually disappearing. I am 75 as of October 2018 with not many years left but my children and graduation will certainly be affected by the innumerable changes that has occurred during the past four decades or even longer. I am so tired of hearing Democrats call Republicans “racist” about everything. Donald Trump is “racist”; his supporters are “deplorable, racists”; now the Democrats are calling Mexico “racist” because Mexicans object to illegals in the caravan. What a Crock!!!

    • This particular one sure is. He opens his mouth to hear himself talk…none of it worth listening to. HE is the one who really scares me with his rhetoric. He needs to go back in the hole he crawled out of. Look where he resides…Calif**kia…

      • What about that stupid Judge who issued a temporary restraining order against President
        Trumps restricting amnesty to the illegals. Mexico offered them jobs, housing, various assistance, and they turned all this down. Vetting must be properly done and illegals should be willing to assimilate into our culture and language to become American citizens.

    • DEMS/RINOS/LIBS HAVE EMPTY HEADS & THAT IS PROVEN BY WHAT COMES OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS….CALIF. MUST BE CONNECTED TO ISIS & ANTIFA…………

      HOPE THAT MAN IS NOT ABLE TO ACQUIRE A GUN PERMIT AS HE HAS KILLER INSTINCTS.

  1. Hey Swalwell,
    I don’t have nukes, I do have a model 782 Barrett 50claiber, that I just bought.
    I was shoting with Saturday at 1200 yards.
    I put 13 rounds into a 10 inch bullseye .
    When the war strats you c sucker it won’t be against the government e ill come for you liberal dem bloodsucking parasites first

    • Yes, the Demorats (sic) want a war so that they can declare Martial Law and then search houses and seize weapons (All weapons). Ergo: Total and absolute control of the population. That is how Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Lenin, Castro, Chavez, et cetera (all left wing progressive Fascists) started their illustrious careers as dictators. And, yes, the Left progressives are the Fascists. Learn history, quit trying to re-write it.

  2. We could suggest that Representative Stalwell sit in Washington, D.C. and call in the first nuke strike there while he is sitting at ground zero. Of course this would only be to ensure that the targeting was done properly.

  3. Yes the government does have nukes, but little people such as yourself do not control them, for obvious reasons, be very careful what you wish for.

  4. The Dems won’t stop now deflecting attention away from their cheating and lies. Gun control is just such an issue to keep attention away from scandals involving BHO, Hillary, Mueller, et al.

  5. I’d rather go out in a NUKE than give up ANY of my firearms to a DEMONCRAT the party of fraud, lies, cheating and such. The sooner we wake up and fight these people the better. The Dems ARE the true enemy of the USA. Personally THEY will be the cause of our next Civil WAR.

  6. Come try and take them bitches!! You’ll find your asses six feet under if you screw with me and mine!!! Hitler took the guns from the people before he began mass executions. If you think I trust any of you or this government you’re sadly mistaken. I have 2nd Amendment rights and if it’s a war you want, it’s a war you’ll get. We silent majority are become less silent and you are provoking a very tired sleeping giant.

    • You hit the nail on the head. They think we are inconsequential because we have been silent and not disrupting everyone’s lives…but they have been prodding this particular Giant a little too long and a little too often. We are waking up! The left won’t know what they’ve done when the Giant seeks righteous vengeance.

  7. Salwell really wants a civil war, doesn’t he? Salwels responce is ludicrious. What, does he think he can unleash nukes and run for cover? It is polititions like this that are not fit to run the government. Democrats always spout off, their word means nothing, and if they think gun owners are just going to surrender their weapons, then yes, he is asking for war, and no I can assure them when Salwell says “I’m sure you’ll give them up (guns) he is sorely mistaken.

  8. Eric sounds like a man of conviction because as soon as he tries rounding up the guns the Second Amendment would go into effect and he would be standing on his last hill. He will be the first target they go for, nice knowing you Eric, too bad so young. Some of your political pals don’t care because they are old and almost gone but, your so young, it’s a pity. Get ready cause their coming.

  9. Says my comment awaiting moderation. I said taking guns & making them illegal is what Hitler did. Why doesn’t it want me to print truth?

  10. Why are liberal communist demoncrats ever voted into office!! If you vote for a demoncrat you are NOT an American!! True freedom loving Americans would NEVER vote for those who want to destroy our freedoms, our Constitution!

    • Because 1) there are actually a lot of communists in this country, and 2) there are also a whole lot of useful idiots. How many people do you know who have a working knowledge of U.S. History. How many people do you know who know what our Constitution is about and have an idea what’s in it. How many know anything about the Bill of Rights. How many know we are a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy. How many people pay attention to what’s going on in the country, or care until election time. My point is, most people in this country do not take their citizenship seriously. Many people don’t use the freedom provided by the system our Founders provided us.

      • And you don’t think they knew this when they decided to take Civics and American and World History out of basic requirements for HS graduation?

        How many of these millennials have any idea who was president during WW ! or II? Not many…They wouldn’t even know who the present President is if it weren’t for MSM and dems spreading hate and lies about him. You never hear of the good he has accompllished…

        • Exactly, ‘Citizenship’ was once upon a time a course in our school curriculum. It was removed due to the influence of communists like, John Dewey, who is today considered the Father of modern education.

          With all the hyperventilating about purported man-made Global Warming over the last 20 years how many millennials have even heard of the 10 year drought of the 1930s, where temperatures ran 100 degrees plus almost every day for half the year, and which included places like the Dakotas, Montana, etc. The whole area of the country from North Dakota to Texas was turned to dust. These environMENTAL whackos would have gone stark-raving mad. Talk about the sky is falling.

  11. Here is a news bulletin for this egotistical donkey. There is no such category as “assault weapon’. this grandstanding mental midget is just that. As for confiscating anything and everything Swalwell, there will be a fight and consider the dims don’t own firearms and this idiot has no access to our nuke arsenal it will definitely be short.

  12. “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”

    – Noah Webster

    • And Noah Webster wrote this in 1787 as he was reporting on what was taking place at the Constitutional Convention. Anti-Federalists, George Mason and Patrick Henry had announced they would not support the ratification of the Constitution unless a bill of individual rights were incorporated.

  13. Just this week a man was murdered by Law Enforcement trying to take his guns. They were enforcing a new Law they passed allowing those whose ‘intensions or politics’ were reported by “someone” as a possible ‘Danger” to Society. Well if anyone can report you and your guns will be confiscated simply on “Suspicion” of a possible threat then all of us are at risk. Forget what State that was but does that matter ? It was right here in the USA>

  14. This is why we have a second amendment. It is precisely to protect citizens from tyranny by the government. The levels of tyranny gain every time Democrat or other leftists is “elected” to office. I put that in quotes because as everyone knows the only way Democrats can manage to win an election is through fraud, deception, corruption or other evil tricks of the political trade. Men (and women) like Swalwell need to be watched very carefully. They must abide by the Constitution and Bill of Rights or be removed from office immediately and with prejudice.

  15. Just how many LEO’s do the liberals think they can convince to attempt confiscation? American’s are not weak and will fight to maintain the 2nd amendment. Liberals will be on the wrong side of history should they pursue this misguided notion. IMO they will not survive.

  16. So basically this idiot suggests that in order to get his way of wanting full power and control over our rights and yes folks I did say rights that he is willing to go as far as mass eradication through the country? One there is no way that can be done he does not have control of that decision. Also is that not the reason he wants ( or says he wants) for the control to supposedly not have unnecessary deaths
    Sorry you can not use violence to quell violence all that it seems he wants amusingly is power and I am sure that it was once said that absolute power breeds absolute corruption..so I am very amused that he proposes to accomplish this task by any means necessary. I also think that was tried before and failed by Adolf Hitler. And to think they are the ones that say the same things that they say about Presedent Trump. So who is really the messed up ones. Thank you

  17. This creep doesn’t need to be in any position of any kind of power. How low can this nut go? Now we have to worry about tyrants in our own government threatening to nuke us here on our own soil.Tyrants , This is why we have our 2nd amendment . Mr. tyrant , please don’t make the mistake of thinking we the people will just give up and roll over. we will fight to preserve all of our rights.

  18. If I lived in that state they would have to pay me 5K per firearm and that would be turned around and more firearms bought with it. They try that crap in CO I have a 2 mile field of vision and have the rifle to hit almost every bit of it. If it comes to a police state here I do have ammo for game like water buffalo with that heavy breast plate armor so feel free to get stupid and show up here, need the target practice.

  19. I have watched this CA. Dem in many T.V. interviews. Nearly everything that comes out of his mouth makes no sense. It is so obvious he has a few screws loose in his skull.

    • Isn’t that the truth? I cringe everytime I see his face…he likes to hear hiimself talk and none of it is anything good for America. He is a dandified little a** who thinks he should be king…

  20. So if you must kill tens of millions of your fellow citizens to get your own version of utopia, so be it? I just LOVE irony!!!

      • Can you read, the cretin this piece is about, indicated that if gunowners resisted, the government would use Nukes. Yes, we know he’s crazy, and the above comment by Bill is basically playing off of that.

  21. All this clown swalwell needs is a funny little mustache under his nose and it would fit him to a tee with his mentor A. Hitler. Good show you liberal NAZI democrap.

  22. “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.” Does that include the criminals who won’t be keeping to your filthy law? Take our guns you make us helpless in order for you communists to take over. Grow up You don’t want to fight with us.

    • Felons don’t fall under any laws, as by definition they are lawless. Laws are for those who are prone to obey them. Seriously, the Supreme Court has already held that felons do not have to register their firearms, because it is a violation of their 5th Amendment rights. Haynes vs United States 1968.

  23. I always thought Rep. Stalwell was a moron, this confirms my thoughts…Jerks on the left seem to forget that there are over 300 million guns in America. I also remind this village idiot that not ONE of these mass shootings including the latest here in Thousand Oaks, California was perpetrated by a member of the NRA who he blames for everything! These criminals will never follow Stalwell’s laws as they steal their guns or obtain them on the black market where Stalwell has ZERO control! On what fucking planet was this California idiot born? He can now kiss his stupid ass goodbye in any presidential aspiration. Like V.P. Joe Biden, Stalwell has a case of Hoof & Mouth disease.

  24. When I was growing up only cops and hunters had weapons. 911 changed everything, the government could not protect you sitting at a desk in a trade tower against people hell bent on killing you. The purchase of weapons under Obama were the highest in our history. WE allowed MS13 and other miscreants into the country and until the congress takes care of the problems they created and get rid of THEIR security Americans will not give up their weapons. Chicago banned weapons and look how safe their streets have become…vote out this chump

    • While it’s true that many people who have guns also hunt, Americans have always had guns. Besides hunting, there are target shooters, trap shooters, collectors, reloaders, builders, wildcatters, etc. I doubt that you grew up earlier than me, but American gunowners predate both of us by a few centuries.

  25. If it comes down to confiscating guns, little bitches like this democommunist must be the one’s who go to the homes to do it. Rank and file law enforcement, who are predominantly republican/pro-American patriots, should not be the ones getting shot up in implementing the left’s anti-American policy.

    Further, the military, of which I am a veteran, is also predominantly republican/pro-American patriots, who take an oath of allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, and unlike the democommunists who take the same oath, take it seriously.

  26. This is clearly inciting civil war and this politician should be immediately arrested for sedition and treason. The American People will never give up their guns.

  27. Recently I saw a video where 4-5 Isis thugs with AK-47’s herded 200-300 unarmed citizens into a ditch grave and shot them all in the head…. The moral of the story is that those unfortunate citizens could not defend themselves. The second amendment is designed so that cannot happen here. Swalwell is nothing more than a power crazed idiot.

  28. He thinks he can walk up to us and we will hand over our guns. One thing he doesn’t realize is that if he started something like that the US Gov. would end up involved deeply into it as he is screwing with our rights. I may be 75 YO, can’t hardly breathe, can’t hardly walk but by the Lord Harry I will give them hell before I give up my damn near junk guns. One of the guns I have had for 67 years and it was an gift. That old gun has been with me almost constantly, the Air Force wouldn’t let me take it along when I was in.

  29. ANY CORRUPT DEMOCOMMUNIST that even “suggests” going against their oath of office that INCLUDES ABIDING BY THE CONSTITUTION, should be immediately arrested, tried for treason, and SHOT or HANGED.

  30. I say ban the liberal democrat/socialist/communist, time to recall this idiot. The Government may have nukes, but “We The People” are the government not you! Time we put these politicians in their place.

  31. I heard a speech in 1959 that went like this “We will introduce socialism slowly into America and when they wake up they will be communists, we will take over America without firing a shot” Nikita Khrushchev then dictator of the Soviet Union.

  32. Well, well…Eric Swalwell just did a great favor to all the gun dealers, gun manufacturers,
    gun owners and prospective new to be gun owners. ( Which will greatly increase).
    Please tell me how a jerk like Swalwell can say and wish to do something so stupid as to Nuke
    us if we don’t turn in our guns.. Whatever he is smoking should be totally eradicated from human
    consumption. Please, won’t someone take him to dinner on the the south side of Chicago on a weekend. What kind of childhood did this person have? Did daddy drive him to school every morning and then pick him up at night ? I wonder if he left his Teddy Bear in the car.

  33. These people are liars and traitors against the American people. Am yourselves! Get prepared! They are coming and they, just like all Socialist/Communist, will murder thousands, even millions to force you to embrace their beliefs. We must meet them with sufficient force and violence.

    • In the 1930s Stalin systematically starved to death millions of people in the Ukraine, because they did not want to give up their farms to collectivism, many that had been in families for hundreds of years. When these reports reached the U.S., American communists/democommunists called it propaganda. When finally they could not deny this travesty any longer, they became apologists for Soviet communism, holding that it was a necessary thing in order to implement communism.

  34. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Mexifornia, must have a death wish. He certainly does not understand or support the 2nd Amendment, so this clown’s on his own tangent against U.S. Constitution and law-abiding U.S. citizens. So, be it, you will be dealt with according to the law of the land, which does not smile upon fruitloops like you that dis the Constitution…

  35. Ask yourself whether the second amendment is more likely to be used against leftist gun grabbers in government or their conservative brethren. The founders recognized that un-American leftist goals are in fact the foundation of tyranny in our time.

    Isn’t there a single patriot (nationalist) left in the democrat party?

  36. Democrats, Do you think the crooks of this world are going to turn over their guns? It would be ONLY law-abiding citizens who would even consider it. Are you crazy????

    • That is actually what they are after, the crime is just the vehicle they are using. You notice they ignore any and all suggestions about the root cause, or remedies. They are not interested in reducing crime, period. The abominable ‘revolving-door’ justice system is their brainchild, and they’ve been coddling criminals forever.

      Fear a politician, political party, or government, the fears and armed citizenry!

  37. If the immigrants from Mexico and Central America had military guns, they would not be in caravans walking up to the U.S. . Perhaps they should be given military guns and training so they can walk back to their countries of birth and take out their terrorist governments.

    Wake up and be careful Democrats, you may wind up in the sights of our military weapons prior to the time you can take them away from us. History has shown the world that gun free zones and countries are very dangerous for the people !!!!

  38. We have a much worse problem than guns, it’s the wannabe communist dumacraps, they have caused this country to have to deal with the sickness of simple minded people that think they are the VIPS of the world only they have to force their self imposed superiority usually earned by more creditable people than the unhinged ignorance of the “I want to be in charge” of people much
    more intelligent, self disciplined and rational than me. It’s a very good thing for the commie dumacraps, that the patriots are not the eye crossed toothless hillbillies the dumacraps have labeled anyone with a gun that did not vote for the obama/Clinton crime regime, count your blessings, because if we were that lie we have been labeled with, there would be a bunch of violent intimidating braindead leftist thugs and desperation of dumacraps inciting the violence, well they would be dead!

  39. Believers in the Constitution should be moving to impeach America-hating people like Swallwell. Either he lied when he took his oath to uphold the Constitution or he is too dumb to understand the
    simple wording of the 2nd Amendment. Or both. These are adequate grounds for impeachment.
    Guns CAN be outlawed by legal processes: Dropping or modifying the 2nd Amendment would require a 2/3 vote of BOTH houses of Congress or acceptance by 3/4 of the states legislatures. Banning arms by any action short of this, at any level of government, is a violation of the Constitution

  40. Obviously the Democrats who are in office continue to prove how anti-American they are and how much they are against the rights of the American people. He is declaring war on American citizens to own guns and does he seriously think that the American people won’t fight back. What he’s doing is motivating more Americans to become gun owners Because we obviously need them to defend ourselves against guys like this and other Democrats will continue to try to take away the rights of the American people. We are actually paying this guy with our hard-earned tax dollars for him committing nothing short of treason against the US and u because we obviously need them to defend ourselves against guys like this and other Democrats who continue to try to take away the rights of the American people. We are actually paying this guy with our hard-earned tax dollars for him committing nothing short of treason against the US and We the people.

  41. This libtard Dummycrat with his veiled threat (really? Use a nuke on Americans? Something right out of SM Stirling’s “Domination” books!) just gave the most profound and straightforward argument as to WHY the Second Amendment.

  42. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., has been and still is one of the dumbest DemonCRAPs in Congress. He thinks people actually listen to him because he is delusional and narcissistic, as are most DemonCRAP politicians. I think I’ll get me plenty of popcorn and sodas so I can sit back and watch the Pelosi led House pass all sorts of dumb ass legislation and see it go nowhere in the GOP controlled Senate. Gridlock does keep Congress/GOVT. out of my pocketbook.

  43. A nutcase from California, what do you expect. He lives in a chithole and wants the rest of the country to be a chithole too. Sorry bud, go —- yourself. 🙂
