    He says "buy them back" like there's millions of people trying desperately to get rid of their ar's if only someone would take them off their hands. I want just one person to ask this idiot on national tv what happens to the people who dont want to sell them back?

    Swalwell will order confiscation.

    The police wont comply with that order after a short while.

    Probably an intentional euphemism used to avoid saying "taking" or "confiscation" or "commandeering." Those particular words set off constitutional alarm bells:

    Oh well. I built mine for my own use so it has no serial number. I wish I could, but, I can't sell it to you!

    I becomes personal the day they give that order should it ever come.
    There are people floating around out there that I wouldn't want hunting me.

    you fogot 'pissed off'. A skilled, prepared insurgent PISSED OFF element.

    It's going to be very, very ugly. There are people who have stocked a lot of centerfire, a lot of rifles, and a lot of optics. There's no security cordon big enough. Read Bracken.....it would only take a platoon or 2 of rifleman loose in MA and you could have the power off, roads shut down, and commerce at a dead stop.

    I'd want an Iranian-deal level payoff in non-sequential bills. That's for EACH rifle....except the mini-14. You can have that one for a cool 50 million...in Krugerrands

    TAPPER: So, gun control is the central plank in your campaign.You wrote last year -- quote -- "We should ban possession of military- style semiautomatic assault weapons. We should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law. And we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons." Criminal prosecution for keeping assault weapons. What's the punishment for people who don't hand in their guns? Do they go to jail?

    SWALWELL: Well, Jake, they would, but I also offer an alternative, which would be to keep them at a hunting club or a shooting range. And the reason I have proposed this is because these weapons are so devastating.

    This.

    I try to explain this to people who don’t know military folks and don’t know about guns and explosives.

    2 platoons in MA would thoroughly ruin the place in a week. And bring it to it’s knees in a matter of a day or two.

    Never mind the partisans who know things and know how things work.

    I sometimes wonder if they truly are insane enough to order confiscation.

    Problem is my guns don't like being left alone and would wonder back home to find me.

    You want to "buy them back"? Okay, I'll gladly sell back every gun that the federal government sold to me.

    Some of them sure are.

    Quotes I got from Tucker's interview that Machinehead posted:
    1 - I support an assault weapons ban.
    2 - This is about military style weapons, getting them off of our street.
    3 - This is about saving childrens lives.

    In the interview he talked about removing fear. “Fear of children going to school and being shot” (I paraphrase). Yeah, what I fear is my grandson going to a “gun free zone” school an being a defenseless target. How about fixing that fear, you twat. I’d happily patrol the corridors of my grandson’s school armed to the friggin teeth. That would alleviate my fear, but that doesn’t fit his narrative so it won’t ever happen.

    There are many of us who are silent but we carry Molon Labe in our hearts and minds.

    My son and I had a quite serious conversation with his son about what to do if there's an active shooter at his school. And it boiled down to "LEAVE". Throw a chair through the window and go out the window. Don't worry about breaking the window, don't worry about what the teacher is saying, just do it. We'll deal with the school later. Do NOT sit there and wait to be shot.

    I gave mine the same advise when he was in school.
    Go around over or through whomever you have to, but GTFO.
