Federal Prosecutors Investigating "Altered" Election Documents Forged by Florida Democrats | Main | Early Weekend Open Thread

Surprise! Prominent Democrat Eric Swalwell Is Already Proposing a Mandatory Semi-Automatic Rifle "Buyback" Program -- Sell the Government Your Gun or Face Prosecution -- and Reminds Gun Owners That the All-Powerful Godstate Has Nukes

They're not even in control of the House yet.

Remember, Democrats posed as moderates for this election.

And here we are.

A Democratic congressman has proposed outlawing "military-style semiautomatic assault weapons" and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution, a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms.

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."

...

"There's something new and different about the surviving Parkland high schoolers' demands," he wrote. 'They dismiss the moral equivalence we've made for far too long regarding the Second Amendment. I've been guilty of it myself, telling constituents and reporters that 'we can protect the Second Amendment and protect lives.'"

Instead, he writes, "the right to live is supreme over any other."

He means the power of the Godstate is supreme over its human serfs, who are inconsequential.

Twitchy curates his response when someone says Swalwell and his leftist Godstate Priests want a war:



Well, I hope the TruCons who either openly agitated for Democrat control of the House or were passive-aggressive and cowardly in merely agitating for that without admitting their aims are happy with all this huge renaissance of True Conservatism they've given rise to.
