Eric “Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell Wants To Take Your Guns And Jail Anyone Who Resists

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has decided to run for president on an anti-Second Amendment platform (while exhibiting a clear lack of understanding about guns), and has reiterated his desire to imprison Americans who don’t hand over banned weapons. 

Appearing on CNN‘s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper on Sunday, Swalwell – who last year joked about nuking gun owners who refuse to give up their firearms –  discussed his longstanding proposal to ban so-called ‘assault weapons.’

TAPPER: So, gun control is the central plank in your campaign.You wrote last year — quote — “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.” Criminal prosecution for keeping assault weapons. What’s the punishment for people who don’t hand in their guns? Do they go to jail?

SWALWELL: Well, Jake, they would, but I also offer an alternative, which would be to keep them at a hunting club or a shooting range. And the reason I have proposed this is because these weapons are so devastating.

Swalwell then displayed his ignorance over the difference between a ‘rifle’ and an ‘assault rifle,’ the latter of which is a term invented by the left.

“You know, keep your pistols, keep your long rifles, keep your shotguns,” said the California Democrat, who added: “I want the most dangerous weapons, these weapons of war, out of the hands of the most dangerous people.”

Anti-gun activists don’t seem to understand that ‘assault rifles’ are functionally identical to other ‘long rifles’ as pictured above; both fire exactly one bullet each time the trigger is pulled, while neither can engage in burst fire or fully automatic fire unless illegally modified.

We’re guessing he also calls magazines ‘clips.’

        The entire Democrat establishment and a large number of Republicans support his ideas. Trump supports many of the gun restrictions. Why, even the NRA is in favor of red flag laws and compromises on semi-auto firearms. They earn six figure salaries and eat well, and they are surrounded by men with semi-automatic firearms.

        What Swellwell says on CNN is what the rest of the “representatives” say in private!

        What Is The IRS Doing With $11 Million In Firepower?
        By Bushrod Washington
        Published June 20, 2016 at 7:51am

        irs police
        What kind of army is the IRS building?
        In the last decade, the Internal Revenue Service has spent nearly $11 million on guns, ammo and other “military-style equipment.” This mass acquisition of weapons of war is new for the agency, but follows a trend of militarization in all executive branches.

        In a report by Open The Books, they detail the kinds of weapons and military equipment the IRS and other non-law enforcement agencies have purchased since 2006. The analysis concludes a rapid buildup in weapons, The Daily Caller is reporting.

        Advertisement – story continues below

        Weapons spending by the IRS more than doubled between 2006 and 2014. Interestingly, the number of IRS law enforcement agents has dropped from more than 3,000 to 2,000 in that time.

        “The recent spikes in IRS purchasing could be related to the increase in recent ‘Identify Theft’ crimes and the prosecution of those crimes into sophisticated gang activity,” the report says. IRS special agents are armed with Smith and Wesson M&P15s, as well as Remington shotguns and Glock .40 caliber handguns.

        Despite the decline in militarized IRS employees, the total number of executive branch armed federal agents has risen sharply. There are now more than 200,000 non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to carry firearms and make arrests – more than the number of Marines.

        In a Wall Street Journal column, Sen. Tom Coburn and “Open the Books” founder Adam Andrzejewski, wonder what, exactly the Obama Administration is doing with all those heavily-armed officers

        agents at the IRS equipped with AR-15 military-style rifles? Health and Human Services “Special Office of Inspector General Agents” being trained by the Army’s Special Forces contractors? The Department of Veterans Affairs arming 3,700 employees?
        The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000). In its escalating arms and ammo stockpiling, this federal arms race is unlike anything in history. Over the last 20 years, the number of these federal officers with arrest-and-firearm authority has nearly tripled to over 200,000 today, from 74,500 in 1996.

        “…but I also offer an alternative, which would be to keep them at a hunting club or a shooting range”

        Fascinating. That was a large part of the progression of “gun control” in the Wiemar Republic. Eventually, the clubs themselves were barred from their licenses if they were not deemed faithful to the NAZI party. Confiscated guns were eventually redistributed to “local” party members and groups.
        Can you imagine the groups the progressives would redirect those small arms to??

        Stephen Halbrook wrote a fascinating (and very well documented) book on the subject. I very highly recommend it.

        My old Pappy used to say:
        Rule 1:
        Never allow a woman to yank your chain. Remember, there are always other women. So never allow a female to incite you to stupid actions. She isn’t worth it. Just go find another woman. There are plenty.
        Rule 2:
        Never allow a loud mouth moron to incite you to violence. Morons have nothing to loose. They don’t mind being ;locked up in the company, of nothing but men, for DECADES. But you do have something to loose, and you enjoy women. So just walk away. Let someone else put the moron in the ground. But you Son, “Will walk away. You will just leave in peace.” No ego. No bravado. No mouthing off. Just walk.
        Rule 3:
        Politicians are liars, thieves, cowards, CRIMINALS. ALL OF THEM. It does not matter what they say, do, “vote”. Politicians don’t matter. So we refer back to rule 1, rule 2,
        -Never let a politician yank your chain.
        -Never let a moron politician incite you to violence.
        Non compliance is your vote..
        – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
        Avoid stupid Places.
        Avoid stupid People.
        Avoid stupid Times. (Nothing good happens past 10pm. So be home by then.)

        My friends did not listen to old Pappy. A few of my brothers did not listen. Now they can’t listen. They are locked up, or DEAD.

        Chill out. Be cool.
        Be frosty. Be Squared away.
        Reload ammo. Reload more ammo.
        Get yourself in top physical condition.
        Garden. Small livestock.
        Buy Gold/Silver/Ammo/Food stores
        Pray. Read the KJV Christian bible.

        May God of Jesus, Bless you and Keep you.

      The true victims will be the Law Enforcement Officers who have to either enforce their tyrannical laws or walk off the job. Those that do try to enforce, will cause the majority of Americans to view a simple traffic stop as a potential felony arrest or worse, an attack. People will simply begin to view the police as the enemy, and will act to protect themselves. Unless you live in a libtard state like Oregon, California or Washington, where the Police enjoy enforcing tyrannical laws.

      Mr. Swalwell, please sir, come to my door and tell me you’re here to take my firearms. Please. For it will be enlightening to you to the max. A regular ‘flash’ of daylight into your mind. I promise. It’ll open mental vistas that you’ve never suspected could exist. My only sorrow for you is that it’ll be an incredibly short-lived experience. Ah… but like so many things that come and go too quickly… alas, this will be the last such wonder you’ll ever see.

      Easy….easy…these comments are how they justify their agenda. As enraging and ignorant his comments are, we only encourage these fascists when we scream for violence. Isn’t that what we want to avoid? They tweak us and some of us react exactly as they hope we will. Please stop with the angry comments and engage your brain. They want us to react with violence while they are the violent ones. Truth wins in the end so stop being such stooges.

      As an addendum to my last comment… I have no doubt that the radical progressives have infiltrated this site to make us all look like crazies. That’s a given.

      Eric “Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell you are one dumb Son-Of-A-Biotch. Over 90% of gun deaths and violence are done by Gang Bangers, and Druggies. With hand guns. You are a Moron.

      Please Moron (I was going to call you sir, but you don’t deserve the tile). tell me. Who in their right mind is going to come after the guns. You won’t, because you will be hiding behind your armed guards with their AR’s. I can tell you right now I know over 100 Cops and Military personnel that will tell you to go and pound sand up your ass, but you might like it.

      You scum bag don’t you understand that when you do this the Revolution will start, and you will be the first that the Patriots of this Nation will take to that tall tree.

      For me I’ve built 4 more AR’s since The Donald came into office, because the price is way down and you don’t have to wait forever to get parts. All these guns were bought legally and with hard earned money that I worked for. The Feds don’t have enough money to buy back all the guns, and before I hand over mine I’m going to empty 100’s of Mags!!!!

      I would like to ask Swalwell if he knew how many murders are committed with rifles of any type. Second question how many AR15s (just AR15s) are there in civilian hands. Third how many rifles functionally equivalent to an AR15 are in civilian hands

      Question 1 about 400 of wish some number unknown are semi auto rifles

      Question 2 about 5.5 million

      Question 3 about 25-30 million

    19. Bill

      Swalwell is not stupid (that’s not to say you have to be smart to be a Congressman), he is a lawyer. However, he is a statist, he believes in a highly centralized state where the power of the state is not, and cannot, be challenged by the citizenry. We know this because he does not rationally and correctly interpret the Bill of Rights, especially the 2nd and 10th Amendments. He wants to render the population powerless by gutting the 2nd Amendment. He also sees the states as little more than sub-divisions of the federal gov’t, that must comply and conform with all dictates of the national gov’t. (Regardless of popular notion and “scholarship” today, the 10th Amendment was one of two basically main issues why the South seceded and was willing to fight a war; to get out from under heavy-handed federal rules that the national gov’t imposed on the South only, such as the diminishment of States Rights, and crippling tariffs imposed on all Southern trade/commerce, thereby draining Southern finance with the money going to economic and industrial development of northern states).
      Swalwell has also stated that gov’t is more important than the economy, or anything else for that matter. You can therefore assume in practice he is also a socialist.
      In Matthew 7:16 Christ said “you shall know them by their fruits”, or in other words, if you want to know what a person really is, observe what he says and does. In Luke 6:45 Christ says “out of the abundance of the heart a man speaks”, that is, a person in speaking will unconsciously reveal the motives and desires that is in their heart and mind. These scriptures are in a religious text, but in the secular sense they also reveal the character, mind, heart, and motives of an individual. Swalwell stated if someone did not surrender their guns to the gov’t they would be nuked. He knows of course not actually, but by making this statement he is showing his contempt for citizens who disagree with him. What he really meant was he wants to impose overwhelming state power on those who will not obey and submit.
      This man is dangerous, he is pompous, arrogant, self-assured, and self-righteous; but misguided. He sees himself as a savior, and willing to trample on our rights for the sake of the state. He is rarely right but never in doubt.

        If we get one of those turds on the Blue side Demoscum the Revolution will start with in a short period of time.

        Practice with the AK and learn the rifle because these are good little rifles that just might save your life. The 7.62X39 isn’t the most accurate rifle but if you can get a 3″ group you will be doing good. Have Fun.

          Sarge and Genius, the only things I got at the gun show was some more 9mm and 12-ga. ammo. Didn’t get any guns this time, not even an AK. Just asking for advice about a certain weapon. I’m always open to looking at something else.

      The Tree of Liberty is getting mighty thirsty for a refreshing.

    22. Genius

      My advice is get an ak. Even a cheap one. Ammo. parts, magazines, etc. are all available and cheap. Deadly, reliable, easy to strip, uncomplicated. What more could you ask for in a short range compact rifle?

    23. Jim in Va.

      DR…get tried and true. Ruger is a little late to the game with that one. Go AR or AK. AR is more accurate at longer distances, AKs are good for 150 yards in,simple to operate and take down and ammo is cheaper. I have a Norinco SKS that takes 30 round mags(as close to an AK as you can get).Swalwell can suck both barrels!

      • Genius

        Ya the sks is a good rifle too. Still cheaper than an ak and almost as reliable. They have a 20 inch barrel which gives them better accuracy and accept 30rd. mags. The only issue I have with using the 30rd. mags is you have to hold the bolt back to change them. This is hard to do and I recommend getting an extended mag release to make it easier. Other than that it too is a great low cost rifle!

        • Genius

          I had forgotten about the SKS. If I find a deal on one I think I will pick it up.

      • reper sleepr

        Jim, I too have the SKS sporter that take the AK Mag. They are getting very hard to find.

        • Genius

          repr, I remember those. They also sold kits to convert a standard to accept them. I just have a standard with the aftermarket 30 rounders and they are a pain to change. The great thing about ak’s and sks with ak mags is you can interchange. Only 1 kind of mag and ammo to buy. I certainly don’t want to get shot with any gun but if I had to I would rather be shot with an AR than an AK. It is like going elk hunting with a .243 vs. a 30.06. Your kill ratio goes way up with a .30 cal and heavier boolit. Damn I wish this weather would clear up! I wanna go blow some shit up lol. 😀

          • Anonymous

            The sks sporter actually takes a standard AK Mag. The regular sks did have mags that they came out which took a retrofit mag that had a long piece added to the front of the mag that covered the entire magwell and was a biatch to get them to lock in.The front piece looked like a donkey appendage.

      The sks sporter does take the standard AK mag. The after market mags with that donkey appendage were made to fit the standard sks to get away from the 10 round zipper strips, and yes those after market sks mags were a biatch to change mags.

          Had a Chi-Com SKS decades ago when they were being sold still in cosmoline for $88. The trigger pull was long, lots of creep and the parts meshed like they were milled with a rat tail file (and might have been). No doubt reliable but not for me unless in a pinch.

      Let’s not forget that the opposition has the media, unlimited funds and rogue (and I’m being polite) elements of intelligence agencies to stage false flags until public opinion changes in their favor. Thats the button their pushing and I think they’re surprised that they haven’t achieved more at this point. Unfortunately the majority of the citizenry believes the news as presented. The legal win or loose lay with their opinion; the least knowledgeable and most gullible. Very comforting.

      This guy is serious, the people that support him are serious, they mean to make this happen,, and there number is growing. 15 states now have laws which allow LEOS to come and seize your weapons based on just about any bodies sayso without due process of law. It’s happening here right now and we are allowing it. Where does this end. The time is fast approaching when every gun owner will have to decide, what are you willing to do to keep your God given right to defend yourself. I hope enough will chose to stand but I am not holding my breath.

        You are right. Some will stand like those on Concord Bridge. Most will bend like the weeds that they are.

      The latest news manipulation in the created news regards an 18 year old Florida woman “obsessed” with Columbine who traveled to Colorado and bought a pump shotgun with the intent of becoming a mass shooter.

      1. It puts Columbine back in the headlines
      2. It shows that an 18 year old can buy a long arm and out of their home state to boot.
      3. It dramatists the need to bar “crazy people” who have as of yet have not been adjudicated mentally incompetent from purchasing a firearm and by default confiscating those already possessed.
      4. It legitimizes the necessity to monitor the individual to keep us all safe.

        If you live there best catch a cab outta there while you can afford one. I wouldn’t be caught dead in that state.

      Just keep stocking up on ammo, have a few very close like minded friends around, and go practice with your weapon of choice. The day when it will lock and load day is getting closer, and it is inevitable as we all know. For you SKS owners, remove the magazine release spring and replace with the spring from a house breaker. The springs are the same size, but the spring from the house breaker is a weaker spring. Just remove the trigger mech and look at it. Study it. Then simply change out the springs. Also do a trigger job on the sear. Look it up on youtube and do it to your SKS. Also, learn how to file down the bolt some so that the donkey dick mags will engage and lock into place without a round having to be chambered. It makes the weapon safer. Also, ride that bolt forward when chambering that 1st round. Keep that firing pin greased so that it doesn’t lock into place because of carbon buildup. Peace through superior firepower by knowing and employing site picture, sight alignment, breathing and trigger squeeze. Praise the Lord and pass the ammo. Kill ’em all and let God sort it out, to include their family. No prisoners and no mercy because we will be shown none. There will be no rules of engagement, so send as many as you can to Jesus!

      I own some of the offending rifles and don’t shoot them much, However, the thought of turning them in or having someone to come get them very much bothers me. These people are very dangerous and if they ever manage to pass their laws it could cause some serious problems. If we can not manage to come to some position that makes both sides comfortable, then it is only a matter of time that we will have serious problems. I think all our adversaries outside of the country would love to see this conflict erupt. I guess the best thing to do at this point is prepare for the worst.
