Skip to comments.As Trump waffles, some Democrats talk up mandatory gun buybacks, licensing

Rep. Eric Swalwell of California might have left the presidential race, but his signature issue is still on the primary ballot.
After the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month, Swalwells proposal for a mandatory buyback of all assault-style weapons was embraced by the congressman who represented the Texas border city, former Rep. Beto ORourke giving the idea its highest-profile platform yet.
Swalwell has been actively advising presidential candidates to follow his lead, telling them in conversations that the moms will have your back, even as critics denounce the plan as gun confiscation that would turn ordinary Americans into criminals.
If you want to ban future sales, I actually think intuitively you're already there, Swalwell said. You recognize these are weapons we cant have in our communities, and the next step shouldn't be that hard, which is to get the ones that are there now.

NBC reports BS always.
“Eric Swalwell”. Hahahahaha! Dude dropped out before Deblasio.
That’s how I feel about my gas guzzling Challenger.
But my 2nd amendment right will help me protect my right to own a gas guzzling car.
“Trump waffles.” NBC hopes.
The states have never expressly constitutionally given Congress the specific power to establish mandatory gun buybacks.
From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added]. United States v. Butler, 1936.
It is disturbing that federal gun control laws seem to have started appearing in the books during the FDR Administration, FDR and the Democratic-controlled Congress at that time infamous for making laws which they had no express constitutional authority to make.
Remember in November 2020!
MAGA! Now KAG! (Keep America Great!)
Im pretty sure something like that is unconstitutional. Not that they care.
Why bury something you’re going to need? BTW, every policeman and soldier on Earth couldn’t disarm Toledo.
And if I hold out, does the price go up?
It does in real estate and in art auctions.
How about a bidding war:
The feds vs. the Cartels.
They need to keep talking this up. Gun sales will skyrocket, including AR-15’s, again as under Obama.
Talk about Orwellian WordSpeak!
If you go to the NBC web page there is a photo of the firearms stolen back from the subjects of Australia.
LOOK AT ALL THOSE PLASTIC STOCKED A-S-S-AULT RIFLES!
Oh wait, I only saw one. The rest were common hunting rifles and shotguns. I saw only ONE plastic stocked AR-15. ONE.
Not everything gets buried. Leave turd guns as the bait.
Maybe its time to begin dead pooling these DemoMarxists....
Swalwell and O’Rourke should both be swinging from the neck.
How does one buy back something they never owned?
