Skip to comments.Go Ahead, Representative Swalwell: Make my Day (DOH!)

For the American Left, gun control has always been nothing more than a statist impulse in search of a reason to justify it.
And there have always been reasons theyve offered as to why the government should prohibit Americans from owning this type of gun or that one. Today, the talk tends to be about the AR-15, and the reason that is most commonly parroted tends to be along these lines, this one offered in a tweet by Max Boot:
There is no reason why any civilian should own an assault weapon. And gun prohibition and buyback much more effective than a ban on further sale.
Boot tweeted this in support of the courageous and principled stand taken by Democrat House Representative Eric Swalwell of California, who is championing the idea of an Australia-style buyback of assault weapons such as the AR-15.

WARNING! I forgot to mention that there is a disturbing photo in the article that may scare you. Yes, a picture of an AR type weapon with accessories attached.
I have an M-1 Garand. That 30-06 round would sure do a helluva lot more damage than a girlie .223. Would it be considered an assault weapon?
Would it be considered an assault weapon?
The correct question is; Why does Mr Swalwell and his junior high school hookey players want to disarm citizens?
Another FReeper noted they didnt buy the gun from the government hence the government cannot «buy it» back.
Well, maybe they should “re-double” their efforts then. You know, “going forward”. grrrrrrrrr!
Another Evil Democrat seeking attention!
The leftist push for gun control serves a two-fold purpose; prevent the people from defending themselves from an increasingly menacing and overbearing government, and instantly create a new criminal class (public enemy). Unlike other types of criminals, the leftists will pull out all the stops in persecuting and prosecuting newly-outlawed gun owners. You can bet
Too bad, Swallowwell, I don’t have anything for sale.
Another goofball takes the stage. The demonRATs continue to display the fact that they don’t have a complete brain among them all. I’m just worried they will come after MY favorite “assault weapon” next...my beautifully balanced Louisville slugger! ...or my kitchen knives...
I don’t trust a man who’s last name sounds like it came from an Austin Powers movie.
Hey, it LOOKS scary and that’s enough to make me FEEL afraid. LOL!
They don’t care about that. They will just say it’s scary looking and therefore it should be banned.
he he he
OMG!! Take me to my safe place quick!
Well, the barrel is obviously right there under one of the numerous ACOG’s. The Trigger is on top next to the gas block and the magazine is internal...
I don’t care if he nukes me, but I’m going to move to New York first.
Id just like to have the money spent on the optics.
He is just another stupid dimorat. He says they can use nukes if we resist. Remind him who has the launch codes, the authority to designate the targets and the balls to use them.
