Eric Swalwell Pushes Jail Time for Americans Who Won’t Hand over ‘Assault Weapons’

| April 16, 2019


Remember our pal Eric, a Democrat Congress-Critter from California? His claim to fame, other then being Eric Swalwell, was to suggest on a tweet last Autumn, responding to a gun rights enthusiast who said the Democrats’ proposal to confiscate or buy semi-automatic rifles would result in “war” due to resistance from the gun owners. Eric replied by stating “it would be a short war” because “the government has nukes.”

When called out on this ridiculous statement, he tried to walk it back, claiming the nuclear weapons remark was intended as no more than a joke, and emphasized that he was not warning gun owners about such a response to their resistance to gun confiscation.

Guy’s a laff riot. Especially so, now that he’s formally launched a presidential bid, and firearm confiscation is a central position. Surprised?


Swalwell appeared on the April 14, 2019, airing of CNN’s State of the Union, and Jake Tapper began the segment by reading a May 2018 quote from Swalwell, which said:

“We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic 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.”

Tapper then asked Swalwell if criminal prosecution means Americans who held on to their guns would go to jail. Swalwell responded, “They would.” He then added, “But I also offer them the alternative, which would be to keep them at a hunting club or a shooting range.”

Swalwell AND Tapper? One wonders how they fit that much ego on one stage. I digress- he further stated:

In his remarks, he laid out specific agenda items, including a ban and buyback program for assault weapons and universal background checks for all gun purchases.

One would imagine he’s a big fan of New Zealand’s newly launched buy-back-or-jail program. I don’t think that will fly over here.

  1. The Leftists/Socialists never learn.

    They will eventually force a violent reaction/backlash. Lets hope the reaction is bad enough to teach them how ignorant they are, or wipe them out.

    Quote :
    “Those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” –Unknown.

      The original version is “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
      By George Santayana.

      There is another version Churchill, I think, but he was an evil colonialist pig, so his opinion is not valid anymore. Check your priviliege.

    • Slowest Joe says:

      “The Leftists/Socialists never learn.”

      Not all leftists are socialists, and not all socialists are leftists. Some are national socialists, instead of Soviet style international socialists, like most leftists are.

      Or maybe national socialists are leftists too, but the Soviet propaganda machine tried their best to make them look rightists after the Molotov cocktail failed. Or was it the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact the one that failed?

      I need another cocktail.

    Everything in my house is an assault weapon, including my two feral four-leggers. Isn’t he bald or something? One of them could launch herself right onto his skull and hang on tight while counting coup on his whoreson nematode brain.

    Didn’t he pick up the moniker ‘Swallowswell’ or something like that?

    Should I start piling up cat food can lids? Dis goan be sum fun.

    These Progs want a government that controls every aspect of everyone’s lives. They want to control our healthcare, what kinds of food we eat, what types of materials we use (straws, cups, grocery bags, etc.); what types of cars we drive, what transportation we use, what money we are allowed to keep that we earn; what information we are allowed to read and hear; and finally what types of firearms and ammunition we are allowed to own. And that is not a complete list of what they want to control. They will use any means necessary to accomplish the utopia of their fever dreams. They even want to control the sexual orientation of our children. If the American people don’t wake up to what their true motives are this representative republic is doomed.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Testify rgr769! The steady erosion of our other rights have given them the courage to go after the 2A.

      They are Borg….Resistance is futile….you WILL be assimilated.

      “Shall not be infringed!” ’til I run out of blood or weapons to bring to bear.

    • Cameron Kingsley says:

      I think it’s already happening and that’s why they are becoming more and more mouthy. Of course they don’t realize it’s only driving people away. To me, they are becoming desperate. I personally think they are too arrogant to realize (or accept the fact) that America is wired very differently from other countries (a fact in which many foreigners, Europeans in particular, can’t seem to stand either not that I could ever give a rat’s ass what they think anyway. I have about the same amount of consideration or care for a foreigner’s opinion as a ship is concerned after hitting a jellyfish.). The election of Trump demonstrated that perfectly. Of course if they want a fight, they can have one, and it will not end well for them at all.

    When a politician, guarded by men with guns, wants to take away the common man’s guns and leave him and his family defenseless…

    There is just one way to reason with this politician.

    • Fjardeson says:

      Shoot, shovel, silence.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      At least he’s open about it. WE know WHO he is and WHAT he thinks and says.

      IF that is not the stupidest thing a political animal ever said to get votes, then give me an update.

      Swallowswell should be sitting on a park bench with a paper bag, surrounded by really, really hungry dogs…. Just sayin’.

  5. johca says:

    I don’t live in California, but I wonder if those being jailed after their weapons are confiscated will benefit from California Proposal to Seal Criminal Records. Will those who are now convicted felons serving detention in a prison be allowed to vote?

  6. Just Lurkin says:

    We need some imam to make a video on the appropriate way to beat your congressman.

  7. Fear the Govt. that fears guns.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      AMEN! Just look at how the Government treats us now while a number of us are armed and think of how they’d treat us if we were disarmed, picture Venezuela, China, Cambodia,…

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Hey Eric Swalwell, SHIT IN your Momma and Daddy’s faces for breeding you!!!

    • rgr769 says:

      He and his boyfriend from the Tenderloin can team up with Presidential candidate Buttplug and his husband for a session of double dutch ruddering. Note: API, you misspelled him name; it is Swallowell, anyway, I have frequently seen it spelled that way.

  9. OldSoldier54 says:

    This bozo is a classic example of the old Animal Farm : “Some animals are more equal than other animals.”

  10. The Other Whitey says:

    Hey Swallowell, to quote Kurt Russell, skin that smoke wagon and see what happens next!

    You want anything from me, you come and get it YOURSELF. Don’t send some poor sheriff’s deputy or serviceman (assuming any wouldn’t tell you to go fuck yourself) to be your unwilling henchman. YOU come IN PERSON for this little seizure attempt. Show the world the courage of your convictions.

    MOLON LABE, motherfucker.

  11. HMC Ret says:

    Well, this LooneyTune and those like him would need the military if not LEOs to implement their total gun grab. Yeah, I can just see CPL Smith taking up arms against his own to satisfy the leftist loons.

    Fuck. Them.

    Something about cold dead hands comes to mind. assemblerhead pretty much nailed it above.

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    Does anyone think this bozo is really bright enough to absorb the mere idea that not only does nobody really like him, but also, no one with a working brain is afraid of him?

    • rgr769 says:

      This buttwipe is as clueless about firearms as that other waste of skin from the SanFransicko, DiFi. I especially enjoyed that video of her from over twenty-five years ago where she tries to insert a magazine upside down into the mag well of an AK-47 (likely a semi-auto variant). After about four on camera attempts, some one turns it around and helps her accomplish the task.

  13. Country says:

    That Tick Turd is gonna wind up starting a public uprising, nee, even a revolution with proposed actions like that

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Let’s hope so. If everyone who went to his PR appearances threw overripe tomatoes at him, he might get a clue and back off. But being the arrogant ass that he is, he’s on a roll right now. One can only hope that it rolls downhill right into a cesspit.

  14. usmcmgb says:

    Better start building jails there Eric. Ain’t a veteran worth his salt that’s going to give up his gun rights.

  15. Reddawg_03 says:

    Just keep pushing.

    Dumb asses

  16. QMC says:

    Another brilliant proposal by Congressman Nuke ‘Em Swalwell! You go California!

  17. AW1Ed says:

    Swallowell and Duke Nukem have never been seen in the same room together. Coincidence?
