During the May 21 airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) defended his plan for a government-sponsored “assault weapons” buyback with criminal prosecution of Americans who do not comply, Breitbart reports.
The Democrat from California, Rep. Eric Swalwell openly admitted that the plan is a FORCED BUYBACK PROGRAM ON ASSAULT WEAPONS. When Carlson bluntly said that, that plan is a forced government confiscation, Swalwell sidestepped and avoided the “confiscation” truth.
“I’m not calling for confiscation. What I’m saying is we should invest in the buyback, that we should restrict any weapons that aren’t bought back to gun clubs, hunting clubs, shooting ranges. Keep them there, where it is safe, not on our streets. And if you are caught, just like, if you were caught with drugs or anything else, they have probable cause to go into your home and you have one of these weapons, yes, you’d be prosecuted.” ~ Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA)

Swalwell describes an AR (Armalite Rifle) in an article he wrote in USA Today:
“Military style semi-automatic assault weapon, An assault weapon, then, is a hand-held weapon of war, capable of spraying a crowd with more lethal fire in seconds, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.”
After a bit of back and forth, Swalwell said, “Why do you need an AR-15 to protect your house?”
Carlson responded, “I don’t know, why do you need one? You have them in your building where you work.”

The assault weapons ban was a flagship measure of Clinton’s husband’s administration, signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1994 at the peak of the crime wave that was devastating US cities. It was allowed to lapse in 2004, and since then has been a major fault-line in the dispute between second amendment conservatives and gun control liberals over what to do with the ongoing carnage of mass shootings in the country.
Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the 2nd amendment and “We The People’s” rights to own firearms and she calls her movement “The Resistance” and that all firearm owners are a “National Shame”.

The AR-15 is the most common example of what are sometimes called assault weapons. But what does this term actually mean?
AR stands for ARMALITE RIFLE WHICH IS THE COMPANY THAT MAKES THEM.
Prior to 1989, the term “assault weapon” did not exist in the lexicon of firearms. It is a political term, developed by anti-gun publicists to expand the category of “assault rifles.”
The Democrats have been saying for years that they do not want to come take your firearms away. Yet their actions show that is exactly what they want and are pushing towards. What people need to realize is that they are bypassing federal laws and at a state level, they are accomplishing it.
