Posted on 04/09/2019 8:23:03 PM PDT by Perseverando
During his April 9, 2019, town hall in Florida, 2020 presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said that he thinks licensing and insurance requirements for gun owners are worthy pursuits. Swalwell said, I think most gun owners who are responsible want to see more licensing, and standards, and background checks. So I do support having higher standards. I also dont think its unreasonable to look at, especially if you accumulate some of the most dangerous weapons, having insurance requirements as well.
Swalwell also reiterated his push to ban assault weapons and use a mandatory buyback to take them from their current owners. He said, Keep your pistols, keep your rifles, keep your shotguns, but we can ban and buy back the 15 million assault weapons in our country.
When an audience member asked about creating a national database on gun owners, Swalwell responded, I just dont buy that theres going to be any national round-up of guns. No one is saying, Round up the guns.' He said fear of a government-sponsored firearm round-up is illogical.

Other folks have discussed roundups.
Ah, the “Nuke America” twerp.
Dear Congressman Nukem,,
This idiot aint going anywhere but him and the rest of the clowns sure show their true colors.
how about licensing and insurance before he opens his mouth? Surely he doesnt think the First Amendment is more important or should be handled differently than the Second Amendment.
This is the stupid twit who threatened to nuke American citizens. He belongs in a prison cell, not Congress.
Isnt this the guy that said hed nuke gun owners?
Swallowell pegs the gaydar.
What a dips_it. His first issue he tackles as he announces his candidacy for President is to take on the top issue no Democrat has ever succeeded on and is unlikely to. All he did was establish himself with the far left wing of his party which was his real intent.
I guess another way to do this, would be to say fair is fair, if you want to exercise any of your constitutional rights, you must purchase insurance and get a license first. How will that work?
May I point out that this photo is all too typical of the so-called “Progressives” of the DIMocRATS Party. = His BIG mouth is OPEN & spewing STUPID NONSENSE.
(As my lady says, “Most of these DIMocRATS are HATERS, BIGOTS, & ignorant FOOLS who are unqualified to clean the toilets in the US Capitol but not too ignorant & filled with unreasoning HATE to be elected to Congress.”)
It’s long PAST time to HUMILIATE the Gun-HATING LEFTISTS & RIDICULE them until they flee the public square, with tears of shame streaming down their faces.
I don’t need the face of of tyranny to be stupid as well but I’ll take it.
The Buttplug-Swallow ticket.
Just when you thought the RATS couldn’t move farther to the left.
what a frickin’ idiot
Eric Swallow well has no political future.
Licensing, permits and continuing education for so-called journalists.
Nuke the NRA!
Name Effing ONE !
