Congressman Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California, has gun control — and specifically gun bans — in his sights.
The Congressman is working on legislation to rid our communities of firearms of any kind. Unlike previous gun ban proposals by Democrats, Swalwell’s legislation does NOT allow for the so-called grandfathering in of currently owned firearms. His proposal include confiscation of privately owned firearms.
“Swalwell followed up with a lengthy NBC News interview this week in which he made clear that his own proposal is a departure from prior gun bans that allowed those who obtained the firearms when they were lawful to keep them.
Swalwell said that after thinking “about the different ways to address it … I concluded the only way to do this is to get those weapons out of our communities.”
Not only would his proposal be a massive infringement on the 2nd Amendment but it could also cost billions of dollars in legal reparations to gun owners.
Under his proposal those unwilling to give up certain firearms would face stiff penalties.
Those penalties, and the door-to-door confiscation associated with them, could lead to some explosive confrontations between law enforcement and 2nd Amendment supporters.
