Democrat Presidential Hopeful: “The 2nd Amendment Is Not an Absolute Right”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Sunday on CNN’s “State Of The Union,” Rep. Eric Swalwell explained why he is making gun control the central pillar of his presidential campaign.

“Keep your pistols, keep your long rifles, keep your shotguns,” Swalwell said. “But 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.”

The Second Amendment is not an absolute right,” he also said. “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.”

Under Swalwell’s plan, people who don’t agree to sell back their “military-style” weapons could face jail time. But, he said: “I also offer an alternative, which would be to keep them at a hunting club or a shooting range. And the reason I have proposed this is because these weapons are so devastating.“ Swalwell has not defined what he specifically means by the vague term “military-style” but it is generally believed that he is referring to AR-15 style weapons.
