Eric Swalwell: More Gaslighting of Americans on Gun Control ~ VIDEO

Dan Wos, Author of – Good Gun Bad Guy
Host of The Loaded Mic

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- You’ve heard the gun grabbers say, “Don’t worry, we’re not going to take away your guns.”

There are a few implications with this statement and they’re not by accident. The first is, “don’t worry.” What is the first thing you do when someone says “don’t worry?” That’s right. The goal here, is to get you to worry. When someone says, “don’t worry,” the implication is that there is something to worry about. If there was no potential for worry, the term “don’t worry” wouldn’t be used. An example would be, “I just got a call from your Doctor, but don’t worry…”

The next implication with the statement, “Don’t worry, we’re not going to take away your guns.” is the idea that they “can” take away your guns. If someone tells you they’re “not going to” do something, the simple assumption is that they have the ability to do so, otherwise, why would they say they “won’t?” The idea here is that you should be very concerned that someday, they might.

This type of anti-gun rhetoric is not only power positioning, but also a form of “gaslighting.”

The underlying idea behind a statement like, “don’t worry, we’re not going to take away your guns,” is to make the gun owner feel and look crazy for even suggesting such a thing. In the case of gun-grabs, gun-owners see the countless attempts, by Democrats, to take guns. “Gaslighting” is the process of making the victim doubt their own eyes. This is a strategy mental abusers will use on their victims. It’s a strategy designed to weaken the will of the abused by making them feel confused and crazy, as if their own thoughts are irrational and their own experience didn’t occur. The perpetrators are most often emotionally weak themselves, preying upon others in the attempt to make themselves feel stronger by gaining control over their victims. “Gaslighting” can be part of a narcissistic personality and affords the abuser a false sense of empowerment.

According to Psychology Today, “Those who employ this tactic often have a personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, and psychopathy chief among them.” With the help of left-wing media, Democrats often use this strategy.

According to NSSF, Congressman Eric Swalwell (also, infamously known for his relationship with a Chinese Spy and accidentally passing gas on national television) recently used the “we’re not going to take away your guns” tactic when trying to defend Joe Biden’s latest gun-grab attempts.

Swalwell said, “For decades, one of the most tried and true scare tactics by the gun lobby is that the government (specifically Democrats) are coming for your guns,” The Congressman also wrote, “These misinformation campaigns have been used for years to scare law-abiding Americans into thinking they are going to be put under government surveillance to confiscate their guns.”

In typical left-wing hypocritical fashion Swalwell announces on his own website, “We should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the new law, and anyone found to be in possession of such a weapon after the buyback period has elapsed would be in violation and subject to prosecution.”

But don’t worry, he doesn’t want to take away your guns.

As we know, the gun-grabbers in Congress will stoop to any level in support of their mission to disarm Americans as they seek power over them, but it seems Eric Swalwell may have found a new low by using his own family members to push his political agenda.

In a Tweet on May 16, 2022, Swalwell wrote, “My 4-year-old just Facetimed to ask what I’m doing to ‘help the people in Buffalo’ and ‘why did the bad man do this?’ Absolutely gutting. This cannot be his normal. It’s time to BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS.”

Many on Twitter, pushed back, suggesting that a four-year-old wouldn’t be preoccupied with such issues and especially wouldn’t have the maturity to ask what is being done to ‘help’ with respect to such a politically driven human-violence situation. Regardless of whether or not Swalwell fabricated the interaction with his son, it would seem he is willing to resort to using his own child for political purposes. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have pushed his four-year-old into public view.

So, when people like Eric Swalwell use strategies like “gaslighting and leveraging their own family members, they not only reveal much more about themselves than they may realize, but they show us how important it is for real Americans to recognize the behavior of the elected employees who have decided to go against the rights their Constituents in pursuit of political power. Some may argue, in Swalwell’s case, it may be for personal relevancy or public redemption.

The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.

the answer when a dumb as…. like this says we are not coming for your guns , is you are right you are not because I will fight for my rights and those like me will too and you will be dumped in the trash where you belong

Chuck

Too bad Fang Fang didn’t execute the Traitor on her way back to Beijing

2A Gun Guy

All the while Our Elected Representatives have 24 hour Armed Guards for their security but, we Shouldn’t have guns to protect Ourselves and Loved Ones!

uncle dudley

We see how bad the democrats have screwed up California, we don’t need them doing the same to the country.
This clown keeps getting elected to congress, shame on the voters in his district.

swmft

not just comifornia new york ,Massachusets new jersey anywhere they are it is like majority of people are brain dead. I had a thought once that stuck with me, as the number of people increase numbers of animals decrease, maybe their is a limited amount of energy than can form an intelligent nexus, or thinking brain; and the rest are buffalo or sheep, or rats rabbits in human form with the mentality of the animal they replaced

Wild Bill

The Island of Dr. Morrow !!

swmft

sure does seem that way

PMinFl

Very good article, Dan, keep it up until more people become aware of the shortcomings of our “leaders(?)”.

Country Boy

Our politicians are not the leaders of our country. We The People are the leaders of our country. The politicians we elect are (supposed to be) our Representatives doing the will of We The People. But when’s the last time a politician did that?

swmft

in congress july fourth 1776

Rock

Ahhh Eric SwallowsWell…. The lefts socialist mouthpiece, and proven A-HOLE.
Just SHUTUP, you are past history now..

KDad

Swalwell should move to China where he will have the opportunity to screw all the Chinese spies he wants !

Wild Bill

She was the only woman on the planet that would do him, and that was because her communist handlers ordered her to.

According to NSSF, Congressman Eric Swalwell (also, infamously known for his relationship with a Chinese Spy and accidentally passing gas on national television) recently used the “we’re not going to take away your guns” tactic when trying to defend Joe Biden’s latest gun-grab attempts.

In addition to saying that he would nuke gun supporters that refused to turn in their guns. Let’s not forget that. Seems, he and uncle joe seem to think that nuking your own people is ok. I wonder if the remainder of the demonratt party are in lockstep with this.

Oregoneistan

Country Boy

Evidently they are. Remeber Hillary referring to us a “the basket of deplorables”?

put down it is what we do with rabid dogs

swmft

like pit bulls caged and muzzled

Ram

Well Swallow did once suggest a nuclear response to armed citizens.
So a little worry is in order. While I wouldn’t want to be responsible
for the destruction of my city, I also won’t surrender my American
inheritance.

musicman44mag

Yep.

john

Here is a defining moment and a true story, 2 aggressive pit bulls got away from the owners yard while my wife was working in the yard. The dogs became aggressive my wife feared an attack as the began to stalk her she is not afraid of dogs. She made it safely into the house. We called the police and animal control the police arrived 45 minutes after our call & the aggressive behavior by these to dogs The police talked to us both and left our home, one week later the pit bulls were on the run again. They… Read more »

Ope

Of course protect yourself and those you care about. I was wondering what the morale to the story was.

Wild Bill

The moral of the story is that the owners are careless and at fault. Dogs look to the pack leader for guidance. The owner has to be the Alpha Dog.

john

Correct protect ourselves and those that can not.
Bill thank you
We now must be the Alpha dogs to survive.

musicman44mag

I hope you got his name and badge number. Check the laws and know if discharge of a firearm is against the law where you live. I lived in a place like that and was told the same thing. When I questioned the discharge of the firearm the sheriff was insistent that if I was protecting my livestock that the judge would not do anything. He also told me to throw the dogs in the trash, another no no because it is against the law. The animal control is supposed to be called to dispose of the animal but he… Read more »

Shooting someone’s dog does not sit well with me as it not the dogs fault. That said if need be Bang dead dog. The law is a funny thing there is no law against firing a firearm outside the city limits where I live. The catch in court is the distance from one house to another which would make it hard to be a legal shooting. If I or my wife was under attack our life’s in danger in GA dead dog. You just can’t shoot the dog because it on your property , you will see a judge and… Read more »

musicman44mag

You are right, it is not the dog’s fault, it’s the owners, but if dogs do run free and join up with other dogs, the natural instinct takes over to become a pack and they think and act like one like the animals that they are. All that domestication goes away.

I had groups of dogs, that were a pack, try to take down my horses and I could legally kill them but after a few 410 in the ass they learned not to come on the property anymore.

john

I used to be in the bronx and just before sundown the wild dogs would come out if they could couner you and boy would they try you would be in trouble. These dogs covered in mange and sick mean and hungry.

swmft

there are some in Harlem too I think the drug dealers keep them like junk yard dogs to protect turf

swmft

Im a rock salt kind of guy one time and they do not even short cut across the property

john

It hard to understand the minds of those that would kill innocent children in schools or anywhere for that matter. What is easy to understand is politicians & those in hollywood there motives seem never to address the real issue. To be in the spotlight the democratic politician a chance to saber rattle the actors and actress a comment on social media or a interview then they crawl back under the rocks in there protected environments and private security. Schools are a soft target environment with signs the read gun free zone or drug free zone a magnet for criminal… Read more »

A guy like Swallwell, Nadler, Schumer, and 99% of the other Communists pretending to be Democrats given the power of a US lawmaker by voters signals how deep the rot of America has become. The Voters that put these Communist traitors into office truely believe Communism is the best way for them and their families. This is the biggest danger we face, not China or Russia.

Wild Bill

True, and when war with China comes will they support our nation or communism?

That choice has already been made sir follow the money and the propaganda.

hippybiker

I remember the movie “Re Dawn” and the scene when the Communists are interviewing the Mayor! The comment from the Mayor is very tell of the typical politician. “I just want to get along and see this through.” The sarcastic reply from the Cuban Colonel. “The people of this city are truly blessed to have a leader like you.”
Toot Sweet!

Wild Bill

Yes, I recall it. Good point!

Monkey Mouse

We will be in Civil War by the end of 2022 at this rate, maybe a war with China too.

Wild Bill

Can we defeat the Chinese communists, first, please.

musicman44mag

I think when that happens that it will be a world war because Iran, Russia, Pakistan and other muslim countries will jump in to support china in the overtaking of the U.S. and destruction of our country. China and russia will work on us while the muslims work on Israel.
Just a guess, lets hope it doesn’t come true.

OreGONEISTAN

Wild Bill

Well, that is one scenario. It is up to our commanders to mold the fight tactically and strategically. I think that the Chinese were counting on Russia tying up all of Europe so that the U.S. would have to commit troops. I could be wrong.

musicman44mag

Oh, I absolutely agree with you and we were actually smart by saying we would wait to see what NATO says. Not that I like being in NATO but mostly I am tired of being the police for the world that gives the most in money and pays the most in our son’s and daughters blood for people that don’t really like us or at least appreciate what we have done for them anyway. I wonder if Tiwan is going to be the pushing point that gets the ball rolling. I mean, obiden has already drawn the line in the… Read more »

NOT FUNNY !

I don’t think that he meant funny, ha ha. I think that he meant ironic.

Funny was used in ironic terms.

Thanks for sharing the info. It reminds me of what Marx said.

Wild Bill

Carl or Groucho? I like Groucho’s saying best, but that is just me.

musicman44mag

LOL, thanks.

Terry

Yeah but that Harpo could play a mean harp!

PMinFl

They have all been waiting for a weak leader like biden for generations, keep prepared.

musicman44mag

and they got him, didn’t they.

Wild Bill

Oblabla was a weak leader, too, but the People’s Army did not have four aircraft carriers, then. Another problem that the People’s Army is having is that they can not make our stolen jet engine designed perform like our do.

Finnky

Not a guess. That is a realistic assessment.

Fortunately with experience so far in Ukraine, I doubt Russia will be willing to attempt more. That war has impacted our stores of arms and munitions – hopefully our defense industry can ramp up and catch up.

musicman44mag

That is what I believe china is waiting for. If we are at war with ourselves, it would be difficult to fight another country as big and powerful as China has become. Thank you bill cliton, bushes, obummer and obiden for selling out the USA and making us into Merica. FU
