Earlier this year, liberal Rep. Eric Swalwell said the only way to solve the “gun violence” problem might be forced confiscation:
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.”
This week, Swalwell obviously had it up to here with critics of his gun grabbing wet dreams by reminding those who are defiant who really has the power:
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.

Yep, there’s no better way for a liberal politician to remind people who want to keep their guns in case the government gets out of control that they’re delusional and paranoid than by threatening to nuke ’em!
As for me, I’m not sure that would make the best angle for winning in 2020.
"Turn over your guns or I'll nuke your hillbilly ass" might not be an effective 2020 presidential slogan when it comes to winning over red state voters. https://t.co/XOsMMkJFPd
