Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Just Schooled ‘Nuke Gun Owners’ Dem Rep & It’s Awesome

The other day, a Democratic congressman from California suggested (sarcastically he says) that if gun owners revolted against the outlawing of semiautomatic assault weapons, the U.S. government could use nukes on them.

Rep. Eric Swalwell Jr. continued the gun ban debate with all-comers after his comments went viral.

Dana Loesch, a conservative radio host & spokesperson for the National Rifle Association asked Swalwell about his proposed ban.

Loesch tweeted:

“Would you limit the ban and confiscation to semi-auto rifles or would you extend the ban to semi-auto handguns also, seeing as they’re illegally used many times over more in crimes such as homicide?”

To which Swalwell replied:

“Fair question. Rifles. They’re more powerful and cause more carnage when used with a pistol-grip. See @ScottPelley @60Minutes piece. To reduce semi-auto pistol deaths I’d have universal background checks and mandatory reporting on mental health.”

Basically, Swalwell said that if you add a pistol-grip to a rifle, the rifle becomes more powerful. Of course, his answer doesn’t make sense. A pistol-grip doesn’t make a rifle more powerful. It can aid in the control of a rifle, but it definitely doesn’t make it more powerful.

The responses to Swalwell came quick & they were hilarious.

Rob O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL who killed Bin Laden joined in today with some brutal mockery.

O’Neill tweeted to Swalwell:

“Ahh… I remember the first time I killed someone with a pistol grip…. #neverforget”

Others chimed in with equal hilarity.

“Rifles gain no more power and cause no more damage based on the type of stock they are fitted with. Your postulation about as #brilliant as saying a car has more power based on the color of its paint.”

And probably my favorite:

“I slapped a pistol grip on my truck and it turned into an abrams tank. It’s amazing what science will do.”

NBC covered Swalwell’s proposed ban earlier this year:

“In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”

Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons — and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.””

This guy Swalwell seems like a genius (sarcasm). Perhaps instead of suggesting the government could nuke us, he should attend a firearm training course. The NRA has plenty of them!
