Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and 2020 presidential hopeful said the Second Amendment was not an absolute right.

Discussing his proposal to “ban possession of military-style semi-automatic assault weapons,” Swalwell said, “You know, keep your pistols, keep your long rifles, keep your shotguns. I want the most dangerous weapons, these weapons of war, out of the hands of the most dangerous people. But when it comes to what else we can do, because I don’t even suggest this is all we can do, I also want background checks. So do 73% of NRA members.”

When asked if he wants to repeal the Second Amendment, Swalwell said, “No I don’t agree but I think the greatest threat to the 2nd Amendment is doing nothing. The Second Amendment is not an absolute right. Just like free speech, you can’t shout fire in a theater or lie about the products you are selling. You can’t own a bazooka. You can’t own a tank. You cant own rocket propelled grenades. We should put some limits in place, and I think the American people are with me. I’m no longer intimidated by the NRA.”

    Hey Swalwell, do you remember this oath, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God?” You swore to it, and the 2nd Amendment DOES GUARANTEE THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT of the citizens of the United States the right to bear arms. YOU SIR ARE A COWARD AND A CHARLATAN. RECALL SWALWELL! SEND HIM PACKING BACK TO WHATEVER HOLE HE CRAWLED OUT OF AND DO NOT LET HIM NEAR ANY CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS OR ON ANY COMMITTEES REGARDING CITIZENS’ RIGHT.
