Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell isn’t calling for gun confiscation – all he’s saying is that Americans should be forced to give back their guns or be arrested. At least that’s how Swalwell put it in an interview with Tucker Carlson when he poorly attempted to distance himself from the controversial term “confiscation”.
If you read the op-ed written by Eric Swalwell, though, you’ll see that gun confiscation is exactly what he is calling for. Swalwell believes that semi-automatic weapons should be banned and that the government should buy back all semi-automatic weapons from Americans who currently own them, prosecuting those who do not turn over their weapons. In Swalwell’s own words, “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.”
Such measures may not amount to the door-to-door style confiscation that many envision, however, they are an abhorrent form of gun confiscation nonetheless. For Eric Swalwell to go on Tucker Carlson’s show and state that he does not favor gun confiscation shows not only his hypocrisy but also his lack of the nerve necessary to stand by the words he himself wrote when faced with how ridiculous they really are.
