Excitable Eric Swalwell Releases A Gun Grabbing Plan

Eric Swalwell might be the main Democrat running for president who’s primary focus is on firearms, but, what he believes is pretty much what the rest believe

How Rep. Eric Swalwell would tackle gun violence in America

Democratic presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell on Monday stood outside the National Rifle Association headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, to unveil a gun-control plan that includes banning assault weapons, instituting a gun buyback program and requiring licenses for all gun owners.

The California congressman promised to “restore hope in America’s cities, so people don’t resort to the lowest form of communication: violence.”

The California Democrat, who named gun violence a “top-tier” issue and a “health care crisis,” called for banning “every single” assault weapon and buying back such weapons from those who already have them. Swalwell, a former prosecutor, last year proposed a ban on “possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons.”

Swalwell said he would hold weapon manufacturers responsible by “lifting the shield of liability that protects” them, and he said gun licensing procedures should include buying insurance. He said everyone who buys a firearm should go through a background check, but he did not detail what that process should entail.

He also said he would work on legislation to keep people with mental health issues from getting guns and vowed to create a national firearms database.

Virtually nothing in his plan touches on criminality, except for making law abiding gun owners criminals. Look at his “gun buyback”

  • Ban civilian possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons with an exception shooting ranges and hunting clubs.
  • Buy back military-style semiautomatic assault weapons from anyone who chooses to follow the law.
  • Criminally prosecute any person caught defying the law.

Eric also wants to legalize everyone who is in the U.S. illegally. He also wants to invest in our neighborhoods, noting that “We have neglected communities of color, and we have failed to invest in young Black men across the country.” Which is interesting, since most of these areas are in cities run for a long time by Democrats.

He’s also looking to “Create a federal licensing program for gun owners, requiring them to satisfactorily complete a training program with both written and practical exams, the same way most states do with cars and hunters.” Obviously, cars are not in the Constitution. Further, we know that the exams, training, and licensing would be so burdensome that few would be able to qualify, much like the programs D.C. was running that were killed off by Heller v D.C.

He would also “Limit ammunition sales for individual purchasers to 200 rounds per 30-day period.” I don’t know about you, but I blow off more than that every time I go to the range.

And lots more insanity, but, very little about going after those who use firearms criminally. Wouldn’t want to offend those who vote Democrat.

Oh, BTW, for all the hoopla about gun grabbing by Dems
