You’re doing it wrong: Dem Rep who’s running for president reminds defiant pro-2A crowd who’s got the nukes

What a way to tell everybody their government tyranny concerns are unfounded!

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:

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.
