Democrat presidential candidate Rep. Eric “nuke ’em” Swalwell might be backing away from his reminders to 2nd Amendment supporters about who has the real power when it comes to weapons. Instead, Swalwell’s got a plan for what to do with people who don’t willingly surrender any guns he believes are too scary to possess, and the plan doesn’t involve nukes:
Dem Rep Eric Swalwell, now running for president, would ban possession of 'military-style semiautomatic assault weapons.' Government would buy existing weapons. Jail for owners who refuse to give them up. From CNN: pic.twitter.com/IL5SIL17NI

Isn’t it nice of the congressman to offer an “alternative” to your 2nd Amendment right in the Constitution? *Eye roll*
Going door to door will not end well.

Talk about “immeasurable fear” of guns coming from somebody who tries his best to spread immeasurable fear is quite shameless.
He sites the "Fear" that is mostly caused by the MSMs irrationality, lies, mis-education, and propaganda as a reason to take away someones right. This could be expanded to almost anything. dangerous precedent.

I bet the people who want to commit murder won’t be frightened by the threat of jail for holding on to their weapon.

Swalwell would rather turn law-abiding Americans into criminals overnight just because his party’s anti-NRA’s talking points calls for it.
