Default Eric Swalwell Unloads Gun Platform Liberals Really Want

Gun grabbing politicians and activists claim they are against wholesale seizure of firearms they claim they just want to ban so-called weapons of war.

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.”
The "buy back" seizure scheme mechanism is identical to to the Australian seizure scheme touted frequently by gun grabbers as a model of modern gun control. Oh but , we are supposed to accept the proposed new law will only apply to a small list of so-called assault weapons.

Never mind the vast majority of illegal gun violence is perpetrated using handguns, gun grabbers will never ask for this seizure scheme to be applied to evil handguns. But wait, if it's good enough to control assault weapons and hand guns, why not go all the way with a full Australian seizure model. Remember what gun grabbers are really saying when they laud limited "common sense" gun control measures identical to Australia's seizure scheme, it will only be expanded into full gun seizure.

What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.

As wrong as he is, you got to applaud him for his honesty. Most anti-2nd amendment trash will tell you that they don't want to ban guns or confiscate guns while saying they want to ban semi-automatic firearms under the guise of an assault weapons ban and praise the gun control laws in the UK and Australia,
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt
