What Democrat Eric Swalwell’s Gun Policies Really Mean

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- When Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals push gun-control laws, they want you to think they intend to save lives, but when we look at how these laws would violate the rights of people and put them in danger, we begin to understand their real motives. When anyone wants others to be vulnerable, we have to ask ourselves, how it is that the perpetrator might benefit.

It’s not so unbelievable that those in power (or those who desperately seek power) would want to control the people they represent, but that some people would welcome that control over their own lives is a much scarier thought.

Congressman Eric Swalwell recently held a rally that attracted a whopping 20 people, where he unveiled his latest list of gun-control measures. His performance took place outside the NRA Headquarters in Virginia (for effect). His list of attacks on the citizens he hopes to represent as President include civil liberties violations that cause the gun-grabbers to salivate, but when we look at the potential results of his ideas, we get a good idea of what his real intentions might be. Here are some of them.

Ban and “buy back” so-called “semi-automatic assault weapons” and prosecute those who don’t comply

This is confiscation under the guise of “buy-back.” As soon as “prosecution for not complying” enters the equation, the freedom to choose is eliminated, and our “rights” are gone. This is the thinking of a dictator.

Implement background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases

Studies have shown that 90% of criminals surveyed in prison, acquired their firearms illegally and avoided background checks, while 95% of background checks denied are initially “false positives” (good people being unjustly denied). If the gun-grabbers know that criminals pay no attention to background checks but good people are the ones denied, who are these background checks intended for?

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.

This would appear to be another way to limit gun-ownership by giving bureaucrats the ability to create required standards that would be impossible to meet. Who do you think would write the rules to these mandatory programs or the questions on these exams?

Require that all people or businesses selling more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition in a 30-day period be federally licensed in a program similar to the Federal Firearms Licensee system.

This could be an attempt at implementing another government-issued license created and run by those who don’t want firearms dealers in the first place. Firearms dealers would have to meet additional government standards, ultimately making it more difficult for them to conduct business.

Prohibit individuals from hoarding ammunition in quantities exceeding 200 rounds per caliber or gauge.

Two hundred rounds is hardly “hoarding,” but any terminology that makes gun-owners look dangerous is helpful to the anti-gun agenda. This would appear to be rhetoric on the surface but if implemented, would limit the ability of gun-owners to train; turning gun-ranges into ghost towns and creating an ammo drought that would prevent people the ability to defend themselves if attacked. Guns would collect dust in closets because there would be no sense in carrying one if it was ammo-less. A law like this would conveniently criminalize anyone who owns more than 200 rounds. But how would they ever know how much ammo you have? That’s what the ammo background checks are for.

Limit ammunition sales for individual purchasers to 200 rounds per 30-day period.

Again, the lack of ammo would shut down gun ranges, causing a lack of interest in future generations. If no one can shoot for practice or recreation, the desire for these activities will quickly disappear. This, coupled with a continued effort to implement gun-fear in our youth, would make gun-ownership a thing of the past.

Repeal the law that prohibits the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives from consolidating and centralizing records relating to the acquisition of firearms maintained by federal firearms licensees.

“Gun-Owner Database.” Not sure if there is any other way to see this one. Remember the Red Flag Laws that many states are trying to implement and ask yourself how they would work hand-in-hand with a database.

48 Hour “cooling off” period for firearm purchases.

The biggest problem with this is the fact that people would be vulnerable to attacks during waiting periods. Women being stalked or pursued by a violent predator would have to “wait it out.”

The idea that someone would need time to “cool off” or they would otherwise kill is an idea that lives in the minds of Anti-Gunners. By believing others would act dangerously when angered or “triggered,” they may be revealing more about themselves than they realize. This is a common projection that comes from the irrational gun-fear crowd that believes “guns make people do bad things.” This reveals their own dangerously volatile lack of physical restraint. Someone who thinks other people needs 48 hours to “decide not to kill someone,” may have some deeper issues that need to be addressed.

Prohibit states from allowing teachers to be armed on campus.

Preventing teachers from being able to protect themselves and their kids would only seem to perpetuate the dangerous activity we continue to see in Gun Free School Zones. If the idea is to prevent senseless killings in schools, how does it make sense to make teachers and students more vulnerable purposely? It would seem that this type of policy would encourage more school attacks, ultimately justifying the call for more gun laws, but I’m sure that’s not the intent here. Nobody is that sick.

Require that liability insurance be purchased before a person can buy, trade, or otherwise receive a firearm, which is what states already require for automobiles.

This looks like yet another way to eliminate gun-ownership in America by pitting insurance companies against gun-owners. How soon would there only be one insurance company left willing to provide this insurance and how expensive would it be? Would a law like this encourage frivolous lawsuits against gun-owners? How would it help to offer monetary rewards to people for suing gun-owners? What would happen if your insurance policy lapsed? Would the insurance company be required to notify the government, similar to the way insurance companies now notify DMV if your car insurance lapses? Using automobile insurance as a way of justifying this is a way to make it seem like a “common sense policy” so you look irrational if you don’t go along with it.

If only the Anti-Gunners could see how voting for this type of government overreach would likely affect them on issues they care about down the road. If we find ourselves telling them, “See, we told you so,” it’ll already be too late.

    1. Swalwell’s agenda is a wish list for starting a civil war… one that the Left would lose, badly. Hey Eric, do you want a purge? Because this is how you get a purge!!

      1. @William Flatt, The Left, themselves … personally, would not participate in actual fighting. They can not start a lawn mower, much less a revolution. Can you see the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Bde standing tall in formation?
        The Left would use governments, federal, state, and local, to do their dirty work. The best way to stop them is not let their agenda get made into statute (unconstitutional statute).

    2. I read (50 years ago) that the 2nd Amendment was written to protect us from our own government. The founding Fathers knew all to well about the European governments of the time, disarming their populations. Their intent was to insure that our citizens always have an armed response to government tyranny. Please understand that I am, in no way, advocating violence against our government !! Only attempting to offer additional ideas about the reasoning behind the 2nd.

    3. Sallowwell doesn’t understand the Constitution or the American culture or public. If it wasn’t for the fact that he is a congressman no one would pay him any attention. If by some diabolical turn he was ever elected for an office, out side of Kalfornia, much less POTUS, there would be a bloody civil war. Thankfully, we are not that far gone. If we can reelect President Trump, hold the Senate, and recapture the House we may be able to avert a civil war and return this country to its core values. Hopefully, the public at large will wake up and in 2024 and elect Vice President Pence as POTUS. People must realize the Dims are to the left of Lenin. If any leftist policy such as firearms confiscation, tax and spend, the Green (raw) Deal, medicare for all, etc. are adopted we will never recover. It may be too late. Starting in the 1960’s with prayer being abolished in school, then the 70″s with abortion on demand, and finally gay marriage, that’s three strikes. God may no longer be smiling on America. We are close to Sodom and Gomorrah. It is written the the Book of Revelations that Israel will stand alone against the world’s armies. I can’t see America abandoning Israel. (Maybe under Obama) However, if America ceases to exist, then Israel would be alone. God Bless America.

      1. Swalwell and his coconsperitors are taxing Americans in the socialist people’s republik of Kalifornia into bankruptcy to force them out or into homelessness and then replace them with foreign invaders called illegal aliens. I dare him and them to lead the charge personally and not be hiding behind a police shield!

    4. Socialists know nothing of common sense. They are emotionally driven with a knee-jerk mentality to fix problems that they have created. How does a government entity buy back something that they do not, or never have, owned. What a joke! Our constitution was written by men with more intelligence that socialists will every know. They knew that free men needed a means and way in which to protect them should the need every arise. Governments are ordained to protect the people from foreign invaders, not seek ways to destroy the freedoms and liberties of its citizens. The old adage: “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. Is America becoming the next Nazi regime?

    5. So he wants aa 48 hour cooling off period? Hah!! HOW will that help? I have a cooling of period of a few months whenever I decide to buy a gin. First, a considerable tome of reasearch to make certain what I want to get why, and who makes the best versions of that. Two months, at best. Next, the long, slow, arduous quest to round up those Sawbucks I will need to trade for it when it is time. five to ten hundred dollars don’t just fall from the sky, not on the planet I occupy, at any rate. This can take up to another four to six months. Now I’m at six to eight months of cooling off. Once Ive got CIF (cash in fist) now comes the actual hunt… which may take another two to four months, depending on what I find at the gun shows I can manage to attend, depending on scheduling. (theirs and mine are often found to be at odds with each other).
      So, after all that waiting, considering, sweat, effort, Swill Well want me to have to wait ANOTHER piddly48 hours? That also means gun shows are dead.. no doubt part of this intent. None of them last more than 36 hours first open to last close. And what about buying form online places like GunBroker? HOW does that work in his universe? It doesn’t, again, part of his plan.

      1. I can assure you all that the dirtbag ex-lover jiltee already HAS his gun. It is putative victim who does not.. he’s already seen to that earlier in the “relationship”. SHE will be the one needing the gun NOW. HE is the one needing the “cooling off period”, best effected behind bars, but how to put him there pre-crime?
        Methinks SwillWell is the one with the mental and character disorders, which he projects onto we who uphold the law and would harm no one. His thought patterns are tnose of a deranged person seeking unlimited power and attaching his own evil heart to all around him. He senses something making a powerful stink in his vicinity, so it MUST be from everyone else. HIS S… dont stink. So it mUST be ours that does.

    7. This POG lives in my state. His being elected is indicative of the “fool and his money” sequitur. I did not honorably retire from the military so a bunch of snot nosed politicians can take our God give rights away. That’s just plain wrong. These thug politicians (i.e. Hitlery, Cortez, Sanders, Schumer) are going to get their come uppance and hopefully very soon. Tired of their lies and malarkey!

    8. Eric swalwell is a joke and a loser. He suffers from mental illness, paranoia, using too much meth, and masterbates at photos of micheal Bloomberg!
      Who in their right mind voted for a turd like swalwell? They must suffer from. mental illness too. Hold a recall on this turd and yank himout of pffice and into a prison cell.
      Background checks = gun registration = gun confiscation = democrat storm troopers kicking in your front door and hauling you off to a democrat run New World Order concentration death camp!

      1. I can’t speak for the primaries that got him into position, but after that, voting Democratic without even looking at the names, agendas, or qualifications is a great way to get us into a mess.

    9. Red flag confiscation laws are being trumpeted by democrats right now because their usual gun control arguments are lopsided losers. They’ve been hoodwinked by Bloomberg’s rhetoric and haven’t read his 2018 data. It reveals gun homicides declined seven percent, firearm injuries declined 10 percent, fatal child shootings (under 18) declined 12 percent and unintentional shootings plummeted 21 percent.

      Generally, since 1991, the murder rate has fallen by 45 percent and the overall violent crime rate has fallen by 48 percent. Additionally, shooting incidents involving students have been declining since the ’90s. During that time, citizens were buying a record number of firearms. In 2018, more than 26 million firearms were purchased, a number exceeded only by 27.5 million in 2016 when purchasers were mortified that Hillary might be elected.

      Further, a December 2018 Gallup Poll revealed that gun control is last on a list of what Americans cite as the most important problem facing the U.S. Seems government is the most important problem and immigration is second most important. Obviously, the socialist-democrats are pushing a solution in search of a problem.

      Unarguably, our government cannot be trusted with the 2nd Amendment, just as our founders warned us. The primary problem with this nationwide hysteria to enforce red flag laws is none are crafted with sufficient protections for the accused. Apparently, we’ve been deluding ourselves that the U.S. judiciary would rather let ten guilty parties go free than convict one innocent person.

      Additionally, these laws generally place enormous responsibility and pressure on police officers and judges to dispense pretrial punishment, just in case an owner might be mentally afflicted. This kind of punishment is overly severe to be based on amateur opinions afforded by all the red flag laws enacted thus far. I have no doubt that the Supreme Court will strike these laws down but in the meantime, many firearms owners will suffer needlessly.

      Since we’re dealing with mentally troubled persons, the law should include analysis by licensed psychiatrists. Doubtlessly, we all know of judges and law officers who are far from qualified for such professional undertakings. I also doubt that they’d volunteer to diagnose mental illness if their jobs depended on doing it correctly.

      This movement makes it clear that democrats want control without responsibility. I used to wonder why leftists saturate media outlets with soothing pleas for conversation instead of acting on their clear and ultimate goal of total confiscation. I assumed they stopped short of the extreme because they know firearms owners won’t tolerate confiscation without unimaginable fury.

      Fact is leftists will temporarily settle for controlling little things like angry partners, bayonet lugs, ammunition taxes, bullet shapes and so on. But it’s still part of a common leftist flimflam. Eventually they’ll again get around to universal background checks that are impossible to manage without universal registration.

      They need a universal firearm registry because it fundamentally transforms 120 million owners into dependents. Once they know who the owners are, they’ll choose which of them are allowed to be licensed. It’s the consummate entitlement. The democrat party cannot survive without more than half the nation being dependent on the government. Leftists trade entitlements for votes. It’s the heart of their strategy.

      Justice requires that the accused be afforded at least a modicum of professional analysis and an official opinion by two or more psychiatrists. Leftists screech in the streets if denied a full measure of due process but close their eyes on the subject of self-defense by firearm. These laws open the doors to scorned partners, angry neighbors, children seeking a parent’s wealth and arrogant judges.

      The natural next step for any Nazified government is to codify empowerment of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends, neighbors, judges, police officers, boyfriends, girlfriends, classmates, teachers, faculty, employers, co-workers and everyone except those actually qualified to judge mental competence. California already has a bill that furthers the Nazification of that state. Makes me wonder about the motive for this law.

      Predictably, these newly empowered classes will start lodging complaints against firearms owners they don’t personally know. These empowered classes will look at acquaintances who share residences with or live nearby firearms owners. Complaints soon will be lodged by former partners of acquaintances. Friends of former partners, unhappy in-laws, step children, et al., also will complain.

      In other words, those who know little about owners but are acquainted with those who do, will lodge charges that someone they know may be in danger. It’s complicated and absurd. To iterate, socialists are not interested in public safety. They hope to disarm the governed before dispatching the disobedient.

      1. Thanks for the reply. You make a great point about gun owners becoming dependent. I also agree that the Democratic Party wouldn’t exist with less than half of the country dependent. The less dependent people they have, the more irrelevant they become.

        1. Exactly and is why they are legalizing drugs like Magic Mushrooms so their constituents can get wasted out dependent and not know what the cult leaders are doing thus creating the Cali affect where they are wiped out laying face down on the sidewalk not knowing what planet they are on. Liberal utopia wasteland of zombies.

    10. “Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
      ― George Orwell, 1984

    11. Swellmouths ( Jerry’s kids) parents are on Tuckers site saying they wouldn’t vote for him. My guess is it due to the effects of the vaccines. Im certain they know best. Own parents refuse to support kid found in alley. Hahahahahaha.
