Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California is saying what most of the democrats really want to say. Ban all guns. He wrote an op-ed in USA Today, talking about a gun control policy that America should have.
- Reinstate the federal assault weapons ban, that was in effect from 1994 till 2004, which would prohibit manufacture and sales
- Ban all military-style semiautomatic weapons and buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law
- Criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons
I can no longer hold the false moral equivalence between protecting the Second Amendment and protecting lives – the right to live must take precedence. I am proposing action to protect American lives and America’s future.
The Second Amendment reads as follows:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Usually the left avoid talking about repealing the 2nd, until recently there has been little public support for tampering with the Constitution. The left is getting way more vocal on the complete ban on guns. Conservatives are not crazy or paranoid the left are coming for the Second Amendment and our civil rights. It is their agenda.
If you allow them to take your guns now, the government will not stop until they’ve eventually banned every firearm in existence. Look at the UK for example: they started with the confiscation of handguns and now they have even banned knives! We do not want this to happen in America.
