Eric Swalwell: Second Amendment Isn’t “Absolute Right”

The gun control supporter made his feelings on the Second Amendment clear.

Recently-announced Democratic presidential candidate Eric Swalwell expressed an ambiguous view on the Second Amendment while speaking on CNN Sunday.

The California Congressman was asked if he supported an outright appeal of the constitutional amendment. He claimed he’d oppose such a dramatic proposal, while stating that “the Second Amendment is not an absolute right.” The Democrat went on to invoke federal bans on destructive devices such as bazookas and rocket propelled grenades as a rationale for a federal ban on what he defines as “assault weapons,” a political term invented to describe some of the most commonly owned firearms in America.

Swalwell’s comparison of weapons designed for civilians and rocket-propelled grenades is a red herring, nothing more. Such devices have never been in widespread circulation among among American gun owners- although they’re technically legal, they’re heavily regulated to the point where they’re near impossible to transfer or obtain. The assault weapons ban that Swalwell has expressed a desire to champion, however, would criminalize nearly 20 million firearms already owned by American gun owners.

The Democrat’s invocation of weapons such as RPG’s as an argument for more federal prohibition is ironic- he became a target for criticism when he openly invoked the possibility of the federal government utilizing nuclear weapons in a hypothetical conflict against American civilians.

Such outlandish and threatening rhetoric doesn’t exactly make Swalwell come across as a credible advocate for community safety. But the backlash the member of Congress has received for his civil-war fantasies hasn’t prevented him from becoming the latest Democratic Presidential candidate, making gun control grabs his signature campaign issue. Swalwell would take a step further than other progressives in requiring a national gun “buyback” in which it would be mandatory for gun owners to hand over their so-called assault weapons to the government.

Let’s hope nuclear weapons wouldn’t be required for Swalwell to follow through on his gun-grab fantasies.

America First Florida Rep Anthony Sabatini Introduces Pro-Second Amendment Bills that Would Repeal Red Flag Laws and Make the State a 2A Sanctuary

Published

Anthony Sabatini has quickly established himself as the most Pro-Trump State House Representative in Florida.

And he’s pushing the envelope even further by introducing legislation that will make Florida a “second amendment sanctuary” and repeal the state’s current red flag law

Last week, Sabatini unveiled House Memorial 1135, which directs Congress to designate Florida as a Second Amendment sanctuary state.

“Florida is the nation’s beacon of Freedom—and no state or local official should administer any unconstitutional law,” Sabatini added.

The memorial alludes to the U.S. Constitution as well as the state’s constitution as far as the right to bear arms is concerned.

On February 2x, 2021, Sabatini made an announcement with regards to his filing of HB 6083, the bill which would repeal Florida’s unconstitutional red flag law. Under red flag laws, judges have the ability to confiscate firearms without due process.

“The Bill also repeals other irrational anti-#2A laws—including the law prohibiting adults 18-20 years of age from purchasing firearms,” Sabatini commented.

For those of us with short-term memory, Florida passed a red flag gun confiscation order in 2018 under the watch of a Republican-controlled state legislature. U.S. Senator Rick Scott was governor at the time and ended up signing the red flag bill, SB 7026, into law. He was sadly rewarded with higher office by voters that election cycle.

Thankfully, the Sunshine State can count on the likes of Sabatini to make things right. More legislators will likely need to copy his example in order to rid Florida of this gun control abomination.
