Not only does Democrat California Congressman Eric Swalwell want to ban guns, but he wants to go after law-abiding Americans who resist.
Thankfully, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took him to task.
In a time of full-throated fascism from the Democrats, few are more consistently authoritarian than Rep. Eric Swalwell who is a card-carrying member of the California crazy caucus.

From USA Today:
Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004 would prohibit manufacture and sales, but it would not affect weapons already possessed. This would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.
Instead, 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. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.
There’s something new and different about the surviving Parkland high schoolers’ demands. 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.”
Swalwell is out of his mind and wasting his time.
What a dope!
