It's A Little Difficult Believing An American Said This...

...but of course now that he has said it, and now that he has received thousands of comments criticizing what he said, he is claiming (in the typical manner of a politician) it was mere sarcasm. Somehow though, it makes one seriously wonder just exactly what has our government become with people like him in it.

The he in question is U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and what he in essence said was that firearms owners could never win in a war against the government because the government has nuclear weapons. He allegedly made that remark after a gun rights advocate said this about him on social media:
“So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that's what you would get. You're outta your f------ mind if you think I'll give up my rights and give the [government] all the power," Joe Biggs tweeted at Swalwell.
This prompted Swalwell to defend himself, saying it would be a “short war” because “the government has nukes,” implying the government would use its nuclear arsenal against its own citizens."
More at the source.
Guys like him, in government, are exactly the reason that they who wrote and signed the bill of rights included the 2nd Amendment.
All the best,
Glenn B

and what they don't understand is that the military that they plan to sic on us is full of people just like us and that have those very same guns at home. being retired mil myself I asked the c.o. of the local national guard unit if he'd order his guys to go pick up guns from citizens. he said hell no. he said he loved his boys after deploying with them so many times now and wouldn't sacrifice a one of them, and that's what it would be.
