The Democrats have finally done it.
A top party leader revealed the party’s true intentions on gun control.
And it will horrify every gun owner in America.
California Representative Eric Swalwell is a rising star in Democrat politics.
He is a frequent cable news guest where he peddles misinformation and conspiracy theories about Donald Trump and Russia.
But none of that endeared him to the left-wing base as what just announced in an op-ed in USA Today.
Swalwell came out for mandatory gun confiscation of every so-called “assault rifle” in America.
And if gun owners wouldn’t turn in their firearms then government agents would invade their homes and drag them off to jail.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California wants to ban assault weapons, instate a federal gun buy-back program for those who own them and criminally prosecute those who refuse to hand them over.
The representative wrote an op-ed in USA Today Thursday rolling out what he feels is the gun control policy America should adopt, one that would take “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” away from law-abiding citizens and threaten them with jail time if they refuse.
“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,” Swalwell wrote. “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.”
Democrats used to pretend to respect gun rights.
Now the mask is off.
And they will stop at nothing until the government confiscates every single firearm in America.
