A Democratic congressman has proposed outlawing “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution, a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms.
And he'd define 'assault weapon' as anything he wants to ban.
According to Swalwell, his policy is modeled on Australia’s mandatory
gun buyback laws, which were instituted under a conservative government
after a gunman killed 35 people at a popular tourist site in 1996.
Supporters credit the campaign with a broad reduction in gun violence
and the country hasn’t suffered a similar mass shooting in the years
A: Bullshit; that claim has been debunked numerous times.
B: You notice how careful they are not to use the real term for this: confiscation.
The only difference in these people from past rantings is they're now open about what they want: total control. And they admit they're willing to jail or kill anyone who won't fall into line.
