We’ve said it before, but 2020 is going to be lit. As Twitchy reported earlier, Rep. Eric Swalwell — the congressman who told gun owners that any uprising against the government could be put down with nukes — has decided to jump into the race and focus on gun control as his pet issue. That should backfire spectacularly, no pun intended.
Don’t forget, though, that would-be motivational speaker Cory Booker is still out there trying to get to that one percentage point in the polls, and he says he’s part of the movement to take the NRA down. Seems he didn’t appreciate being the subject of an NRATV video:

It looks like the NRA heard us loud and clear. But its positions are tired, and the movement to take it down will not be discouraged. https://t.co/vO1yolAQS7

“The movement to take it down.” Yes, Sen. Booker, when a presidential candidate is threatening citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the NRA is going to take notice. Noir let Booker know that he’d meet him at a CNN town hall just like Dana Loesch’s show trial a week after the Parkland shooting.
.@CoryBooker It’s easy for both of us to bark in videos but it takes real belief in our positions to expose them to the scrutiny of critical discussion. @DLoesch walked into the belly of the beast during the @CNN town hall & did just that you & I should do the same. What say u? https://t.co/3WE24JY5wH

Come on, CNN, let’s do this thing … everyone knows you need the ratings.

Really hope this happens

@CoryBooker is scared to debate you on an even playing field. He knows he would get wrecked.

He’s gutless… just like @AOC. They talk a big game, but when invited to an actual 2-sided debate, they go silent or cry “catcalling” ?

I’ll say it again. Keep after him Colion, but he’ll never do it.

He doesn’t have the guts.

Guns are made for defense.
Only criminals use guns for offense.
Don't take away guns.
Take away the criminals.

Speaking of Loesch, that “take it down” comment from Booker didn’t go unnoticed by her, either.
What is this “take it down” stuff you always say, @CoryBooker ? The organization you target is simply millions of average Americans who fellowship under the common belief in 2A. Are you talking of abridging our right to speech? Assemble? I’ve asked you several times to elaborate. https://t.co/LBKJ3K2gqr

Dana, you're better off talking to the wall…

He’s a coward. Would rather talk through people than directly.

I’m the NRA!

I am NRA @CoryBooker come and talk your shit to me!

Sounds like he's not honoring his oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
— PowderBurnt (@PowderBurnt) April 4, 2019
Again, Booker is a blabbering moron who thinks he’s a tough guy but has no agenda whatsoever. Just noise with no purpose.
— Ray Smesko (@ray_smesko) April 4, 2019
Just noise with no purpose — well said.
