We’ll Just Leave This Right Here: CA Rep Threatens to Use Nukes to Enforce Gun Control by Dan Zimmerman | Nov 16, 2018 | 117 comments facebook twitter linkedin email courtesy twitter.com Discuss. comments Bcb says: November 16, 2018 at 20:02 That level of crazy warrants the top of the hunting list in a conflict. Reply Huntmaster says: November 17, 2018 at 00:05 This might come as a surprise to our esteemed Congressman but most of the people in charge of the Nukes swore an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They take it seriously. I was one of them, and still know a few. You would be asking them to nuke their families. Good luck with that. Reply Anonymous says: November 17, 2018 at 06:26 His suggestion: Nuke them, to keep them safe. Secondary implication: We are not tyrants. But if you don’t hand over your guns, we’ll nuke you. Reply Huntmaster says: November 17, 2018 at 07:03 Once again. The Democrats, Leftists, Progressives, whatever they want to call themselves, are absolutely not against guns. They don’t want to get rid of all weapons. You can take that to the bank! They just want to make sure that what guns exist, will be used to enforce THEIR AGENDA. Reply Art out West says: November 17, 2018 at 10:13 He isn’t just threatening to use nukes on gun owners. That’s not the way those weapons work. Gun owners are spread throughout society. He is actually threatening to use nukes against everyone in society. He is apparently willing to kill everyone, just to make sure people are disarmed. The man is apparently a lunatic, unfit for political office. Reply Asdf says: November 16, 2018 at 20:10 Why does every democrat thing the government will be on their side when civil war comes? Reply Draven says: November 16, 2018 at 20:12 replace ‘government’ with ‘military’ Reply David Kledzik says: November 16, 2018 at 21:13 Well………….. the military wont. Reply Danny L Griffin says: November 16, 2018 at 21:25 Why do you say that? The US Military has already been deployed against US citizens several times just in the 1900’s alone and they complied and murdered citizens. Gov. William J Le Petomane says: November 16, 2018 at 21:56 Danny, this is true. However, this is also the thinking of the Romanovs. b.d. says: November 17, 2018 at 05:09 Bullshit. This is why I got out of the military… sad but true… I’m not going to be used as a tool to fight against my own people, and I damn sure will never kill again to line some rich oil fucks pockets. You are naive if you think the military/police will not want to maintain their jobs/assets/way of living. Same with the rest of America. Compliance is a dangerous form of complacency. It took me years to come to terms with this, and it might be hard to hear, but the military and the police would be the first ones to suffer casualties in a civil war… saddest part is, the civilian militias fighting for ACTUAL freedom, would be considered domestic terrorists. Time to wake up and smell the coffee people. These idiots in office are just like this idiot who threaten to use nukes… no fucking clue what freedom or liberty really is. pwrserge says: November 17, 2018 at 06:14 Do they want to maintain their families? Because reprisals are a stone cold bitch. Ragnarredbeard says: November 17, 2018 at 07:18 Because part of their agenda for the last 40 years has been to pack the government with their own people. Reply Draven says: November 16, 2018 at 20:10 because gunnies have dared threaten his precious State… and we pointed out that tanks require fuel and food when they said ‘the government has tanks’… so now they escalated it to nukes.

Reply Jimmy says: November 16, 2018 at 20:20 Another moron representative talking out his rear. First, unless you didn’t care if ANY people at all survived the next civil war, you would not use nukes on our own turf lol. Second, as for calling it a short war, I wouldn’t bet on it. Civilians could turn this entire country into a Vietnam type warfare scenario and ambush from any and all places. The government might have a bigger animal than they think on their hands. In addition, who says our military would obey unconstitutional orders and attack our fellow patriots as well. Lots of things could happen, including these idiots in power being removed from power. Never know, but don’t count your chickens smartass 🤦🏻♂️ Reply David Kledzik says: November 16, 2018 at 21:19 Think Russia and Afghanistan. They know they don’t have enough armament, and manoower to do what that demwit is saying, plus he knows the mass casualties on the other side would be astronomical. The military wouldn’t even try, so Swalwell is talking out his as*, with delusions of grandeur.

The REAL question is what dummy he’s sending in his place, and what will he do when he doesn’t come back. Jimmy says: November 17, 2018 at 07:11 Perfect correlation Matthew. I was just thinking about the tactical side of defending ourselves when mentioning Vietnam ( without the jungle though ). You hit it on the head with that reference. Same situation. Geoff "Mess with the bull, get the English Roses" PR says: November 17, 2018 at 16:02 “Think war of the roses” Are you sure you want that as an example? The result of that extended conflict was the extermination of the House of York (white rose) and the House of Lancaster (red rose) family bloodlines… Jimmy says: November 17, 2018 at 07:48 Exactly David. Btw, just who does he think is gonna resupply the military with constant ammo to carry out this ridiculous thought. Last time I checked, all the companies that manufacture ammo would not give our government any more because they are on our side. You know, freedom and second amendment and all. So, unless it comes from outside our country to help them fight our own civilians, his loony mind think 🤔 doesn’t even seem logical. Yes, I’m totally disregarding his nuke comment because that’s his bs puffer fish trying to scare a shark routine lol. As far as military actually following orders and going to war against their own, yes there would be many that would, but in my heart I feel they would be splintered because of family members on the other side of the fence. Just hope that day never comes. Last, he must think we don’t have the intelligence to know how to defeat this type of tyranny before the downfall of our society. They wouldn’t know who to attack and take out first with our militia groups running around all over the country. However, we do know the EXACT list of people that must be removed first to save our people and country. Take the head and the body falls is all I’m saying. That would and should be the first plan of action. Not talking junk, just saying we would have to do what it takes to protect ours too. Reply Geoff "Mess with the bull, get the horns" PR says: November 16, 2018 at 20:26 This is *good*. Expose them for what they are. As POTG, we need to flood the comment sections of web sites with comments supporting that point of view. Let them think the country is on their side, and show the fence-sitters just how unhinged from reality they really are… Reply Rusty Chains says: November 17, 2018 at 01:04 I know the name of Bethesda’s next game: Fallout Democrat and they can have democrat versions of those green super mutants. They could even be named, Schumer, Pelosi, Harris, or Swalwell would be a good start. They could have raiders and name them after TV talking heads like Lemon, Acosta, or Morgan. Yep that would sell, maybe someone could do a mod for Fallout 4 and make those changes, and we wouldn’t have to wait so long for it. Reply New Continental Army says: November 16, 2018 at 20:29 So… he thinks… turning the country into an apocalyptic radioactive wasteland is an appropriate way to deal with gun ownership… The result of which would leave no semblance government what so ever. Somehow, I don’t seem to think a post nuclear war world in a state of anarchy, and overrun with feral humans and mutated creatures, is going to bode well to a gun free, crime free, socialist paradise. You know what? I’m down. Fallout is a pretty fun game so why don’t we make it a reality. Sleeping in a blood stained bed full of radioactive ash and some charred body next to you in real life wouldn’t be horrific at all.

Geoff "Mess with the bull, get the horns" PR says: November 17, 2018 at 16:17 “…we can seize each state’s democrat voter registration and voting records which will give us a national “list” to work off of.” There’s nothing that needs to be ‘seized’. In my county, it’s a public record available on-line, and in convenient PDF format for ease of printing and reading. Go to Google and type in “(Example) County, (State) voter registration records”… fiundagner says: November 16, 2018 at 20:46 So this California representative just posted a threat on social media. Is there someone in California that we can call and report that to that can get one of those restraining orders against him. Maybe get him preemptively locked up since he’s threatening to kill thousands of people. One of those gun violence restraining orders only you know get it a nuke violence restraining order instead. I mean I live on the other side of the country but I’m feeling threatened. I think that qualifies as a battery charge doesn’t it. Now multiply that by a few thousand. And he has to serve the sentences consecutively instead of concurrently. Reply barnbwt says: November 16, 2018 at 21:15 I’m fairly sure they never gave him the keys to the nuke-locker in the first place, so that shouldn’t be necessary. Reply Lou says: November 17, 2018 at 05:56 I feel threatened as well and would like someone in California to ask for a restraining order.

Reply JoeinCT says: November 16, 2018 at 20:50 Well in his defense, thats what it would take to overcome the armed citizens of this country. A scorced earth policy would be the only way to ensure victory. Its terrifying to thing about. The argument is now on the edge of madness. Is he really willing to kill millions of innocent people to prove his point? So if he cant “Save” a few thousand he is willing to kill millions? Those are the words of a true despot. If were not there yet, this country is headed twords insanity. I hope he doesn’t really believe in that scenario. I have a two year old daughter. I seriously fear for her future. I intend to teach her about the convictions of our founders. Liberty was won by an armed polulation who refused the dark future of tyranny. This man is a wanting tyrant. Please remember that every vote counts. Dont be afraid to speak up about your beliefs. The first amendment is the most important. And god help us if thats taken away, thats why we have the second. Reply Ansel Hazen says: November 16, 2018 at 20:57 Lol, “I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.” Hopefully they’ll all gather at the school or some other gun free zone.

That’s what a ‘restrained government’ actually is. I do wish we could isolate whatever gene or mutation causes these omnicidal maniacs to develop, and purge it from humanity.

Reply Ed Schrade says: November 17, 2018 at 00:31 Jasper……Someone did the math using how many guns are estimated to be in gun owners hands. Then they figured the average number of guns per person. They then assumed that two or three gun confiscators would likely die in taking guns from each gun owner and the number of confiscators needed was extremely high. Don’t think that that attempt would last very long. Reply ANG Pilot says: November 17, 2018 at 00:41 The scary thing is that Swalwell and his ilk don’t make a distinction between citizens who legally own and use firearms and lawless criminals; about 34% of US citizens own guns – approximately 116 million. If Swalwell thinks he’s going to be able to force his will on about 1/3 of the country – good luck. This isn’t Australia. A significant number of peaceable, law abiding people are going to vigorously resist any attempt to disarm them or confiscate their property. It is reckless beyond belief that an elected representative would put the lives of citizens and law enforcement personnel at risk as a result of such a misguided policy. His “cure” is worse than the disease. The sad fact is that the majority of non suicide gun deaths are caused by a small number of young, mostly minority men who are involved in repeat criminal activity. NRA member, middle aged white guys aren’t responsible for the carnage in the Democrat controlled inner cities. But it’s “racist” to point that out.

Reply Indiana Tom says: November 17, 2018 at 07:18 I am really trying to figure out the mechanics of his Nuke America Plan. Nukes are best against high density targets. Most legal owning gun owners ( especially rifle owners ) tend to be in lower density populated areas ( which tend to have more productive people) . Is he planning on nuking the higher density urban areas as a show of force? Is he planning on nuking small towns with 60 megaton bombs? Is he planning on trying to rule a radioactive wasteland full of disgruntled and starving people? Is he planning on nuking the gun owning food growing and food distribution centers? What plans does he have for dealing with all the farm livestock eating and absorbing radioactive materials? What plans does he have for dealing with radioactive food supplies? So, he is going to destroy the village to save it? We are fighting for peace in America. Reply Mike says: November 17, 2018 at 07:26 This kind of issue is one of the reason I am seriously questioning my career as a police officer, at +30 year old I am considering working on a degree or other skills and get a fresh start with something different. We deal with stupid way too often for our benefits and pay, agencies are too short on manpower, the job is getting more frustrating, more dangerous, and more stressful. I make a little over $20/hr and I cannot afford a 3bd/2ba house where I work, my pension plan will allow me to retire at 60 year old probably with back pain and the likes. I still get those good interactions with people and that keeps me going but it is getting harder. Our nation is heading in the wrong direction. The nation is very divided, not because of Trump, but because people are too stupid and get too emotional over diverse things. People fight and argue over politicians who cannot care less about us the “middle class”. At some point you have to become a man again, I want to live, not survive the way society is telling me to. I see people everyday working their butts off, to pay bills and to put gas in the car, rinse repeat. Meanwhile the elected crooks are not getting anything (good) done, and they have amazing salaries and benefits. Reply Indiana Tom says: November 17, 2018 at 07:39 I took out the word “good” due to the definition of elected crooks. Meanwhile the elected crooks are not getting anything done, and they have amazing salaries and benefits. Not getting anything done may be a blessing in disguise, especially with Mister Nuke America Plan in office.

But I hope you do understand the gratitude that the good citizens of your county, and this country, have for your service, sir. Reply Adam says: November 17, 2018 at 07:55 Could you imagine the government trying to take out a few hundred guerrilla fighters in the forest of California? California can’t even handle people smoking without out of control forest fires erupting. Now imagine them trying to drop bombs without starting fires and try to imagine them trying to control tactical guerrilla started fires. The entire state would be covered in a smoke cloud after a month. Guerrilla fighters wouldn’t even have to fire guns to win, they could destroy everything in their path by encouraging mother nature in certain areas of the state. Reply JV Crew says: November 17, 2018 at 08:49 The simple truth here is that attempting ‘Australian-style Gun-Control’ in the US would almost certainly result in a Civil War. And Mr Swalwell’s only response is ‘we’ll use Nukes’? Even in jest he shows that he A) has no valid response B) has no idea what that actually would mean – and absolutely no idea what 4GW in the US would be. https://ammo.com/articles/asymmetrical-warfare-4gw-americas-domestic-viet-cong Reply Jimmy says: November 17, 2018 at 10:51 Bingo. This is exactly what I was alluding to in my responses earlier (above). I guess they are the kid that would rather see the toy broken than for their sibling or friend to have it. Really is mind boggling and unbelievably narcissistic Reply W says: November 17, 2018 at 09:21 Swalwell once again showcases how shallow his thinking is. Even if he used “nukes” as a stand-in for large weapons, it’s flawed. Okay Erik, suppose I am standing 50 yards from your daughter. In that case, would you “nuke” me? 100 feet from your wife? 25 yards from you? There are a hundred million gun owners or so in this country. You can’t heard them into some “safe” zone and nuke them. They are very widely dispersed among the population. Using heavy armament on “them” means using it on the general population. And, here’s another way to look at it. There are probably fewer than 200 deaths a year from “assault rifles.” Given this, how much trauma would a public official inflict upon the United States to eliminate this issue? Nuking? Door to door searches and the subsequent barricades/ standoffs/ violence? To what extent would the left create societal conflict chaos to eliminate the threat of assault rifles? If the answer is any of these measures, then they are truly screwed up. Swalwell: mouth is much faster than brain. Reply Michael Ejercito says: November 17, 2018 at 10:02 Why would they care about the damage? This sort of thing will only happen in minority neighborhoods. Reply Michael Ejercito says: November 17, 2018 at 09:24 This begs the question of why most Americans should be worried about gun confiscation efforts. We all know that minority neighborhoods would be exclusively targeted. The NYPD is not going to confiscate firearms in Bayside, Queens, nor Central Park West, Manhattan. The LAPD is not going to confiscate firearms in Bel air or Brentwood or the Hollywood Hills. Reply zhook57 says: November 17, 2018 at 09:37 Oh and TRUMP is the crazy dictator who wants to tear the country in half??? Rrriiight. This guy Swalwell is openly calling for WAR on his own people, and is willing to (direct others to) use force, (up to and including nukes apparently) to crush and kill any citizens who resist his tyranny. This guy is dangerously delusional — but do no underestimate their ignorance and ability to start something that they can’t stop. Reply Crabbyoldguy says: November 17, 2018 at 16:39 It is time to direct the parks service to erect working gallows on the grounds of the mall in front of the capital, as a reminder. In the meantime, censure him thus denying his constituents representation for the remainder of his term. Reply MJE says: November 17, 2018 at 17:04 Go ahead, nuke me right now, this instant. The fallout from unintended consequences would do enough damage to “others” your life would be over. Nuke all gun owners and you’d erase the U.S. From the planet ya moron. Let’s do this; quit the adoption of illegal immigrants and ship them home and enforce the border like a real nation would do. Now that you’ve stopped that financial hemorrhage put that money in programs for our inner city youth, it would provide a path for the minorities that feel bound and live a life of Gangs and thugs. Maybe just maybe if they saw a future they’d stop gunning each other down. I’ll bet you could find plenty of homeless vets who could work with them. Wow now you’ve even helped a vet get employment. Blah blah blah. Your not gonna nuke anybody, you won’t even firehose invaders as they jump the border. Go step on a nail or something. Reply Mad Max says: November 17, 2018 at 17:05 Only you can stop a bad man with a nuke! Reply SoBe says: November 17, 2018 at 21:32 When one segment of our nation is calling for irrational actions against the rest of the nation, such as calling for nukes or supporting slavery, we are headed for a civil war. Interesting how the Democrats are always the innovators or leaders of the irrational concepts. And, yes Georgia, the Democrats were the ones fighting for slavery, and when they lost on that front, for Jim Crow, poll taxes and other racist policies. How quickly we forget history. The only nuclear strikes ever against other humans were also ordered by a Democrat. Reply GW says: November 20, 2018 at 22:51 We own the Nukes! The nukes belong to the PEOPLE and we are in charge…read the Constitution for once retard Congress Tard! Who the F voted 4 ur simple retarded Communist ass. You should be locked up after 1776 justice. Reply Rich Collins says: November 28, 2018 at 23:13 Danny Griffith is the bath house buddy of this toad. And by the way skippy, the FBI has killed and burned more innocent civilians at Waco and Ruby Ridge than the military can be blamed for in the past century. And you can bet skippy learned his facts at Obama’s knee. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
