Is the Left willing to DIE to take away our guns?

(National SentinelCivil War: French citizens fed up with their government’s elitism and out-of-touch policymaking — like allowing millions of West-hating Muslims into the country — have taken to the streets in recent weeks following the imposition of a massive new fuel (carbon) tax aimed at fulfilling the country’s “climate change” obligations via the 2015 Paris Climate Accords.

Reports on Thursday even said that “Yellow Jacket” leaders may be planning armed violence aimed at overthrowing President Emmanuel Macron, whose approval rating is in the basement.

Whether the coup happens or not, it’s pretty evident, judging by the news coming out of France in recent weeks, that a growing number of citizens are unhappy with the way things are going in their country. And they’re not going to take it anymore.

Could something like what’s taking place in France happen in the United States?

Well, it won’t be over fuel taxes related to the Paris Climate Accords because POTUS Donald Trump withdrew our country from that massive wealth transfer scheme.

But it could be over another issue near and dear to the hearts of tens of millions of Americans: Gun confiscation.

Writing in USA Today just a week or so after the midterm elections last month, Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., one of a legion of Democrats said to be considering running against POTUS Donald Trump in 2020, proposed legislation that would authorize the government to implement an Australian-style gun buy-back program specifically for so-called “assault” rifles, which are not military-grade and only resemble, physically, real assault weapons.




But it gets worse. Swalwell said his legislation should authorize the federal and state governments to ‘go after’ any American who becomes a “resister” — that is, send cops and/or federal agents to individual homes. In other words, he is proposing risking the lives of police and federal agents, ordinary Americans, and the civil society over the confiscation of a constitutionally protected instrument.

“So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your f—g mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power,” pro-gun activists Joe Biggs wrote on Twitter — to which Swalwell replied, saying the war would be “short” because Uncle Sam has “nukes.”

The lunacy of believing an administration would nuke its own citizens on its own soil aside, Swalwell is channeling a long-held desire among Leftists: To take away guns from otherwise law-abiding Americans simply because they have determined Americans ‘don’t need them.’

Citing Swalwell’s proposal, conservative columnist, pundit and author Kurt Schlichter called out the California Democrat with a poignant question: How many on the Left are willing to shed blood to disarm American patriots?

He writes:

Rep. Swalwell, some people are going to fight rather than cave in, so what’s the number of bodies you would be willing to pile up to win? Let’s put aside the right or wrong of resistance; it’ll be a thing. It’ll happen. You’re from near San Francisco, so you don’t know any real Americans, but even though I am from that hellhole too, I’ve met a few Americans in my travels. They are an ornery people who don’t give in to the kind of bullying you advocate. So, you’re going to have to kill some people to do what you want, and I just want to know how many you’re prepared to off to achieve your goal.

Judging by history, there will be a good number of citizens who would choose security over liberty and turn in whatever guns they are ‘required’ to turn in. But Schlichter is right in that there will be some resistance, and even if it’s just a few percent of current American gun-owning, Second Amendment-supporting Americans, they will number in the millions.

And when the gun confiscations begin, people will die. How many on the Left would be willing to sacrifice their lives at the same time they are sacrificing the Constitution?

It’s a good question Swalwell should be made to answer.

    I am a old Vietnam veteran with not many years to live at best. I swore to protect the constitution of the United States as a young man and have never forgot my oath. Beware, Mr. Swalwell is a socialist looking to destroy our constitution and freedoms and would kill Americans to do so. Millions of people in other countries in the past century were murdered by socialists who first seized the peoples’ guns and then put anyone who opposed them in mass graves. It can happen here in America too if people bow down to the socialists. I will not bow to the socialists, I will die standing like a man if it comes to that.

    From “Horatius at the Bridge”, to the best of my memory:

    Then out spoke brave Horatius, the captain of the gate,
    For every man upon this earth death cometh, soon or late,
    How can man die better than facing fearful odds,
    For the ashes of his fathers, and the temple of his Gods.

  3. Only problem is; The ‘left’ wouldn’t be sending in any on ‘their own’ to take away the guns. They would be hiding in their ‘safe’ areas while others died.

  4. There’s no coup-de-etat in France… Just like Erdogan did in Turkey, and Merkel in Germany, they contrive the discovery of some “suspicious” activities by a supposedly “radical anti-government” group to justify coming down hard on, and suppressing all the rights of anyone who opposes and protests their idiotic extremist policies.
    As for taking away our guns, Swalwell is out to start a civil war, and he should be held accountable for any violence and deaths that result from his irresponsible radicalism.

      I’ve been telling people for twenty years: based on historical records the ONLY way the left will be stopped is with lead coated with copper!

  5. Is that a threat of physical violence from an elected rep. toward American citizens? A degree or 2 worse than what Ms. Occasional Cortex said to DJT jr., isn’t it?

      Swalwell’s comments are totally in line with United Nations Agenda 21 Agreement signed by the late President Bush and President Bill Clinton. The word treaty was not used so politicians would not be required to take it to the Senate. All treaties must be ratified by Senate.

      Agenda 21 calls for:

      1. Elimination of property rights: not allowed to own home or car or gun.

      2. Maps indicating lands where humans are not allowed to live.

      3. Elimination of over six billion people.

      I’ve read it… this is not hyperbole.

      More info needed just respond

  6. I know for a fact that this POS Swalwell himself would NEVER take one gun from anyone. He would expect others to do this at his command. What he does not suspect is that he and he alone will be blamed for what happens and he will be the first casualty of his own orders. This little dweeb is biting off way more than he can chew. Just cancelling the second amendment on his and his liberal friends say so is not going to happen. Eric is drunk on his own perceived power. Drunks usually finish last in any endeavor they undertake.

  7. Swalwell is being paid BIG BUCKS for this. Follow the money. Just look at that greedy little smirk on his face ; it speaks volumes. Wonder if he’d keep that smile when we stick a shotgun up his ass and pull the trigger.

  8. The leaders who are pushing this agenda are living under a false sense of security, because they are thinking that they are untouchable, (reach out and touch someone does not apply) and only the fools that listen to them will be hurt. To stop any movement you need to remove the money and the leadership.
