This is why the 2nd Amendment is more relevant now than ever.
From The Daily Caller
Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell suggested on Friday that the U.S. government could use nuclear weapons on its own citizens if they fight back against firearm confiscation.
Right-wing internet personality Joe Biggs tweeted at Swalwell in response to a May report that Swalwell wants to ban “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” and prosecute gun owners who did not turn in their newly-banned weapons.
Biggs promised any such legislation would provoke a “war” between gun owners and the government….
Swalwell replied to Biggs:
……Despite the earlier suggestion that the government would go to war with its own citizens, Swalwell mocked gun owners who believe they need guns to protect themselves from a tyrannical government.
BTW: The U.S. military will not follow unlawful orders, nor will they violate Posse Comitatus.
If Swalwell thinks he has the balls to start his own civil war, violate the 2nd Amendment, and confiscate my firearm, he is welcome to try. I know who will be the first casualty.
