Swallwell starts out by saying "This isn't about confiscation" and then goes on to declare that if you are caught with a banned gun you will be arrested- and insinuates your guns will be confiscated. Then later- He gets into argument with Tucker- and keeps repeatign hte same idiotic meme that 'Our police are outgunned' and 'Our Military is outgunned'

One thing I have against Tucker is he never seems prepared and doesn't know how to respond- Tucker should have asked "What does any of that have to do with citizens having an inalienable right to defend themselves and country with adequate enough firepower to get the job done?" And also stated "You claiming that our military is outgunned is absolutely asinine- Civilians are not walking arou8dn with fully automatic weapons, grenade launchers, shoulder rockets, tanks, hellfire missiles etc"

Anyways- Listen to swallwell and discover just exactly what the left are driving for as we speak- He and his ilk don't think you have a right to defend you and your familie's lives with guns that are up to the task- Note that he includes 'semi automatics' in his ban bill

Hmmm, get the state to buy ARs for $1,600. I can then build an AR for about $600. Yes it would be a crap gun but hey, I’m just building it to sell it to the “program”. I make a grand a gun.

Where can I sign up?

Okay, I’m just 5 miles from California. I lost one, but the others I’ll be happy to sell to the state for a million dollars each. No problem.

Anyone who says, “Silly conservatives. No one wants to take away your guns” is either willfully ignorant of the left’s agenda or a goddamn liar.

The shooter in TX used a shotgun and a revolver so his argument is moot.

On one gun buyback, a guy did just that. He got himself some pvc pipe and added a trigger and made $300/gun for the 4 guns he made.

No, we won’t sell our liberty, but thanks for asking.

Not for sale. If I didn't want them, I would sell them for a similar price...or more in select cases.

You can’t buy’em back from me because you didn’t sell’em to me.

‘Rural King’ sells AR type rifles for about $450 bucks every day.

I doubt they will be buying them back for anything close to $1600.

This still does not address the root of the problem in most instances — mental health of the perp.

Unless and until mental health is addressed, the problem will continue. Those who cannot get guns will use knives or bombs or motor vehicles or other means.

Guns are not the problem. Guns in the hands of persons with mental health issues is the problem.

Every soldier, gendarme, paramilitary and police officer on Earth, if somehow magically transported here and under expert leadership, could not, in a scheme lasting 1,000 years, confiscate 10% of the guns in our households. Meanwhile, their widows, orphans and mourners would pile up like a termite infestation and their blood would run like rivers. See my tagline. Field Marshal/Admiral Yamamoto knew what he was talking about.

Tucker gave Swalwell a lot of air time to prove the Trump/Russia collusion and IMHO came up empty handed.

$1600? But what about the sentimental value I attach to the gun? It’s worth much more than that to me. Who decides what a gun is worth. Take this pittance for your valuable gun else you will be arrested and we’ll steal your gun from you. Isn’t this extortion?

"...I will be happy to sell to the state for a million dollars each..."


My concern if offered such a “deal” would be that they would take your weapons and a dozen heavily-armed government thugs would advise they have also decided not to pay. They can keep the money and I will keep my firearms.

I saw him on Tucker. It was not his face that was showing. Other end of the jack ass (aka Donkey, aka ComDem).
