A repeated ploy of the gun control movement is to loudly proclaim law-abiding Second Amendment supporters are using “scare tactics” while opposing proposed gun control.

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), the “Honey Pot Congressman,” isn’t new to this charade. His record is one of support for strict gun control. That includes a failed presidential campaign playing second fiddle to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke to carry the gun control water.

Rep. Swalwell published an op-ed in Newsweek and deployed the ruse.

“For decades, one of the most tried and true scare tactics by the gun lobby is that the government—specifically Democrats—are coming for your guns,” the Congressman wrote. “These misinformation campaigns have been used for years to scare law-abiding Americans into thinking they are going to be put under government surveillance to confiscate their guns.”

Lies About Lies

The thrust of Rep. Swalwell’s anti-Second Amendment screed is that President Joe Biden isn’t interested in confiscating lawfully-owned firearms.

“Let’s be crystal clear—the Biden administration has no secret plan to take away your guns,” he claimed.

He’s right, though – President Biden’s gun control plans aren’t secret. They’re very public and repeated often.

President Biden has on multiple occasions called the lawful firearm industry the enemy.” A major selling point of his gun control agenda is that he claims he’s, “the only one to have taken on the industry and won.” “I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again,” he’s said.

The president was speaking about his ability to pass a ban on Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs), which he incorrectly and pejoratively terms as “assault weapons.” President Biden, in the 1990s, when he was in the U.S. Senate, voted to ban America’s most popular selling centerfire semiautomatic rifle. He continues to push for a new ban today on the commonly-owned firearm. He claims the ban will drive down crime, but data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the, “Assault Weapons Ban (AWB)…did not reduce crime rates.” In fact, when the ban expired, violent crime rates continued to drop even as MSR ownership skyrocketed to more than 20 million rifles in circulation.

The president has also repeated his favorite lie that the firearm industry is “the only outfit in the country that is immune,” from liability. This lie has been fact-checked into oblivion, with media saying, “Gun manufacturers can certainly be sued…Biden is wrong to say gun manufacturers are alone.”

The president lies about his wishes to ban certain lawfully-manufactured and legally-purchased firearms, as well as his wishes to shut down an entire industry that supports the ability of Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. That would certainly qualify as, “taking away guns.”

Twisting Truth

Rep. Swalwell would ban MSRs as well and he’s not alone. He’d go even further, telling Fox News’s Tucker Carlson he’d implement a forced government buyback scheme of the firearms and even, “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.” Rep. Swalwell went so far as to absurdly suggest if Americans still refused to give up their firearms to a government confiscation scheme, the U.S. government would use nukes against holdouts.

Rep. Swalwell would make confiscation easier, if he had his way, by requiring a national firearm registry. That’s the only way a universal background check could work, a policy that both Rep. Swalwell and President Biden support. Universal background checks (UBCs) are unenforceable without mandatory registration – which is illegal under the 1986 Gun Control Act and 1993 Brady Act.

In his op-ed, Rep. Swalwell says claims about a national gun registry are “conspiracy theories,” and that, “The simple truth is that a gun registry does not exist and is not even being contemplated to illegally track law-abiding individuals who exercise their Second Amendment rights.” He even twists one of my tweets to suggest the firearm industry agrees with his bogus claims.

It’s true – the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) does not currently maintain a searchable national firearm registry. It does, however, keep an Out-of-business Records (OBR) database to trace firearms when they are used in a crime. That collection of records doesn’t allow anyone to run a search for how many and what kind of firearms are owned by any one individual.

About 30 percent of all firearm traces involve searching OBR data. The most recent ATF trace data shows that the average time between when a firearm was originally sold lawfully after a background check and before it was recovered by law enforcement has been close to 10 years as recently as 2017. Searching very old records rarely yields actionable intelligence to law enforcement. That’s why NSSF has long supported requiring ATF to purge records that are older than 20 years to save taxpayer money and to use those dollars to put more agents on the streets to stop crime from occurring in the first place.

Rep. Swalwell knowingly took the tweet out of context in order to lie again about what would be required if a universal background check were to be adopted.

President Biden is clearly doing the bidding of his gun control donors. After repeating his lies about the firearm industry and what his policies would do to law-abiding Americans, there is no doubt that President Biden would indeed go after lawful gun owners and dismantle the industry that provides for the exercise of the Second Amendment. Rep. Swalwell is simply carrying the president’s gun control water because he would do the same exact thing.

    • Sometimes they do tell the truth.

      “I don’t care about crime. I just want to get the guns.” – Howard Metzenbaum

      • “That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants. ” – the late LtCol Jeff Cooper, founder of Gunsite Academy.

    • That seems to be true. The basic democrat mantra is that ALL guns are evil (except those owned by democrats or carried by armed protection officers who protect democrats from the “rabble”. One thing we can say is that Swalwell, Biden, and the democrats are committed to outlawing the ownership of firearms by the ordinary citizens of this country, and are committed to making guns illegal for private citizens. Guess who else agreed with the democrat’s plans…..Adolf Hitler did. His Nazi party outlawed gun ownership/possession by those deemed “enemies of the state”. (At that time, the primary “enemy of the state” were anyone who claimed Jewish ancestry!) Worth noting is that the democrats oppose anyone other than themselves or their paid, armed security, from owning/possessing/carrying a firearm. Swalwell and those of like persuasion, need to be transported to inner city Detroit or Washington, DC or San Francisco and turned loose with no guns, no armed protection. Then see how quickly they whine for the police to come.

  3. “That collection of records doesn’t allow anyone to run a search for how many and what kind of firearms are owned by any one individual.”

    That’s what they tell us. However, any automated system that can search for make, model & serial can be made to search for owner. ATF’s ETRACE system can search for owner as well as selling dealer. Every trace conducted by ATF or any other agency results in a permanent record in the ETRACE system that can be tracked by owner.

    • Any database can be set up or changed to look for any data desired. Any “Lockouts” of categories can easily be removed and re-installed. If you have ever filled out a 4473, the Government probably has a copy “somewhere” unless you personally saw yours burned right after you gave it to the dealer.

      If a bureaucrat was ever charged for hoarding illegal data, a liberal judge would dismiss the charge in the name of public safety. They have nothing to fear about getting caught cheating.

  4. Since history has confirmed Gun Control is rooted in racism and genocide don’t ever expect any truth whatsoever to come from such a filthy agenda…Time again for swalwell to go pound sand.

  5. Sure Swalwell talks about confiscating legally bought firearms that have never been used to hurt anyone, presents plans to force them to be turned in, and his sentiments are echoed widely among Democrats. But did you guys know that Biden’s only banned one thing related to firearms and therefore it’s proof that Democrats don’t really support gun control.

    Also, Orange Man Bad. That’s the only thing you’re supposed to be allowed to talk about.

    • Dear troll,

      I, too, think MajorStupidity is a nitwit Leftist/fascist moron, who almost exclusively talks out his @$$, says stupid s*** on the daily (like that Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution authorizes universal Federal gun control), and probably faps to his Che Guevara poster (just read any of my comments to his idiocy on this forum), but jacking his handle is just lame. Criticize him (God KNOWS there’s plenty there to criticize!!!), call him stupid (he is), tell him he’s deluded (he is), but . . . don’t impersonate him. Even sarcastically, that’s lame.

      • To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand my brilliance. My humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical reader’s head. There’s also my nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the brilliance of my posts – my personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. Intelligent liberals understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of my arguments, to realize that they’re not just honest- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike gun control and Joe Biden truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the honesty in the Constitution “Article 1, Section 8” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Erik Swalwell’s genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools… how I pity them. 😂 And yes by the way, I DO have a Beto O’Rourke tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

        • Wow, troll, did all that (quasi) intellectual onanism exhaust you?? Are you going to have enough energy left for your afternoon circle jerk. Make as much fun of MajorStupidity as you want, just stop impersonating him. That’s low class, and you don’t do it very well.

        • I would suggest you pull your head in before it has to be pulled out.

          But I fear the cranial rectal inversion is embedded so deep not even a winch and pry bar will fix it.

        • Do measurable IQs go that low? I don’t think your lady friend is Homo sapiens and more likely bovine. Or possibly flora.

        • Lamp buddy. It’s a Rick and Morty quote. Not a satchel of Richards. You don’t have to take it so hard.

        • “I don’t think your lady friend is Homo sapiens and more likely bovine..”

          You are completely misguided on your guess, Southern buddy.

          I, Miner49er, genealogía; 𝙄𝙌’𝙪𝙚𝙨 𝙂𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙤𝙨𝙚, in point of fact, have MANY MANY ladies of the Gallus domesticus variety.

          Mostly of the red and ceylon junglefowl variety.

          And as variety is the spice of Miner’s life, I also dabble with a few capons when the mood strikes me right.

    • The fly in the ointment for the democrats is that they know with all the gun owners in America, that their gun confiscation plans will not work. I remember back before WWII, the Japanese thought about attacking the continental US of A, but rejected that plan because they knew American citizens had loads and loads of firearms and that we would all stand together to fight the Japs if they attacked. The democrats know that American gun owners would all stand together to fight any attempt to confiscate our legally, Constitutionally-owned, firearms if an attempt were made to force American citizen disarmament.

  6. “…use those dollars to put more agents on the streets…”

    Say what, Larry? That’s part of Biden’s plan too. Did you two discuss this over a bottle of Remisier and some Cubans in a back room somewhere?

  7. quote———-Rep. Swalwell would make confiscation easier, if he had his way, by requiring a national firearm registry. That’s the only way a universal background check could work, ———-quote

    Falsehood. If one would not comply with the newly passed UBC then one would risk imprisonment, loss of gun rights for life, loss of one’s job, and a heavy fine. No law-abiding citizen would be dumb enough to take such a chance and have his remaining gun collection confiscated and destroyed. And remember if you did sell your gun to a friend without going through a UBC and he committed a murder with it you would go into the same jail cell with him. No one who sells a gun knows what the buyer will eventually end up doing with it no matter how long or how well you have known him. A UBC transfer gets you off the hook in regards to a future crime done with your formerly owned weapon, something the average Far Right Neanderthal never thinks about.

    The sea of second hand gun sales to criminals would dry up almost overnight. This is based on the history of other industrialized countries that adopted such measures decades ago. Travel to some of these European countries some time and try to buy an illegal gun and see how difficult it is. Unless you are connected to a terrorist organization receiving weapons and training from a foreign Middle Eastern country you will not find many used gun for sale with no paperwork.

    As a matter of fact in the London Bridge incident a group of self anointed crazies tried to get legal and illegal guns and failed both times proving that yes many times gun laws do indeed work and work well.

    And suppose you kept a newly banned weapon because no one knew you owned it? If you are an ordinary law abiding citizen it would be useless to you as you could not take it to a public range, sell it without risk of being caught or use it in a self-defense situation. It would be totally useless to you.

    In conclusion the government does not need Registration to ban guns nor do they need it to make UBC work and work well. It’s called looking out for No. 1 and that is what people do in spite of Right-Wing Rectum gas on the internet about revolutions and keeping any future banned weapons. I laugh every time I read such nonsense.

    Remember you are ward of the State, spied on 24 hours around the clock and you have no rights except the rights the courts and legislature give you and your Constitution is worth less than the suppository you use to take a shit with.

    Of course after reading this the crazies will attack me simply because I was brave enough not to lie to them and tell them the truth and what reality is in the electronic surveillance age of the 21st Century.

    • It is already illegal to sell a gun to a felon. This idea that making it more illegal will stop criminals from getting guns is the height of stupidity. You suppose that it’s right wing nutjobs selling guns 2nd hand to criminals. The reality is that it’s other criminals who haven’t been caught yet selling to the criminals who have been caught. Felons btw, vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.

      It is already illegal to deface the serial number off a gun. Our government’s new definition of ghost guns includes those with defaced serial numbers. Making it illegal twice won’t stop the criminals who scratch the serial numbers off in the hopes that the guns can’t be traced back to the original buyer. This is not the law abiding citizens who would obey the new laws. This is criminals who know what they’re doing and attempt to cover their tracks. It will continue to happen.

      What I say isn’t an attack against you, it’s a reality that you lack the intelligence to see.

      • to Tim

        With the wave of your hand you scream “do not confuse me with the facts because it does not fit my far right political agenda”. Sorry bud but two Chicago Studies and numerous police tracings show that the average crime gun was second hand and was 13 years old and had been through many hands. This is not rocket science.

        And the theft of guns would be greatly curtailed as well if Capitalvania had safe storage laws as most break ins are quick smash and grab robberies. This would greatly reduced the amount of stolen guns on the street. But the Far Right scream they are against safe storage laws as well. Their paranoia claims they could not defend themselves if their guns were locked up. Bullshit. I locked my guns up for 20 years when I had kids in the house and could access a loaded gun out of my safe in only 1 second. Other people I know wore a key around their neck or had a combination key pad on their safe.

        • Maybe you can open the safe in 1 second, but how many seconds does it take you to get to the safe once the home invaders have busted down your door?

        • Your assuming Gary that a home invader can break down the door in 1 second. Generally not true. There were 3 break ins on my street and the only successful ones were when the people were not home. They made plenty of noise and the people that were home had plenty of time to stop them.

          As far as registration I have went over this in detail many times before. It does make it much easier to trace down a weapon found at a crime scene. You would be surprised how dumb the average crook or psycho often is. No law is foolproof but you do not throw the baby out with the bath water.

        • I have some bad news for you Dacian. If you can get into your safe in one second…. it’s not secure. You’re not protecting anyone.

        • So that famous gun was second hand and had been through many hands, eh? Your intelligence is showing.

    • I seem to remember Fang-Fangs boyfriend saying something about ‘Nukes’. I see you are defending his brilliant ideas.
      Noted.

    • Once again, criminals already do not comply with the current laws. No reason to believe they would comply with any new laws. Gun control laws only affect the law abiding citizen. Criminals are going to keep on doing what they always do.

  8. It is the left that uses “scare tactics”.

    Law abiding gun owners were told by Biden and O’Rourke that they WERE coming to take their lawfully owned guns.

    If it’s a gun that isn’t lawfully owned the the person owning it is NOT a law abiding gun owner.

    Lol
    But this is coming from someone threatening the American people with nuclear weapons.

  9. We aren’t going to take your guns.
    Weapons of war have no place on our streets.
    If you don’t turn them in we’ll nuke your ass!

    There’s no such thing as CRT.
    No! You can’t ban CRT!

    We aren’t teaching grade-schoolers about butt sex.
    No! You can’t ban us from teaching grade-schoolers about butt sex!

    Twitter is not a biased echo-chamber.
    No! You can’t take away our biased echo-chamber!

    If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.
    Oops. I guess not.

    Two weeks to flatten that curve.
    ……

    There’s a pattern here.

  10. So we had a national registry in New Zealand and Australia which led to confiscation. So every time a politician states a registry is not gonna lead to confiscation what they are really saying is we are going to confiscate your guns. That worked in New Zealand and Australia but here it is going to result in these politicians getting shot in the face, because after all the second amendments had always been about shooting tyrants in their face.

      • Gary that is a falsehood. Talk to the Germans, French, British or any other European country and even some Asian Countries. I was shocked when a buddy of mine went to visit his Asian girl friend and she asked him if he liked guns. When he said yes, she pulled out a legally registered Uzi machine gun. And by the way machine guns in the U.S. have been registered for the last 80 some years.

        • One can still own machine guns New Zealand it is an incredibly difficult process to go through and it is illegal to shoot them, you void or all your privacy rights and they can search at anytime. NFA in the United States is also blatantly unconstitutional.

      • Somebody needs to explain, someday, exactly what registration has ever accomplished, anywhere, besides facilitating confiscation. It has gotten so that the arguments are largely mindless, always about confiscation or not, rather than the OBVIOUS question, WTF is registration supposed to accomplish? Or try another question no one asks, if I own a gun, where does the authority come from for anyone to demand it have a special-secret number stamped on it? What if I prefer a different number than it came with, or none at all? Does that somehow make it more gunny, or something? Do they shoot gooder without numbers? I do have to note, though, that Swallowswell should rethink launching nukes at gunowners. As an Air Force pilot and a gunowner at the same time for 20 years, if he ever sent me out with a nuke and instructions to bomb ANY Americans, gunowners or otherwise, he would have done well to be in a sub-sub-basement of the Capitol when my takeoff time came around.

  11. We the PotG are refusing to use our strongest argument in the “registration” debate.

    The gun controllers are never going to get an effective registration scheme working. The Canadians have proven this can never been made to happen. What the gun controllers are really working toward is a more powerful and effective 4473 form database. We don’t have our eye on the right target.

    The gun controllers are going to achieve a more powerful 4473 database. That’s where the political forces are aligned. OK, we PotG can play this game. They want a more powerful 4473 system; and we agree.

    Straw-buying can best be policed with optimal access to the 1st retail buyer for a period of – say – ONE year after first retail sale. Let’s all work together cooperatively to make that happen. The NEXT best tool is access to records of sale between 1 and 2 years after first retail sale. And so forth for several years.

    Somewhere in the existing data on successful traces leading to successful prosecutions is an inflection point on the curve. I’ll guess that it’s around 10 years of the so-called “time to crime” curve. If that’s the number, let’s all support ready access to records of sales for 11 years after sale. Destroy all the older records.

    There is nothing that we can do to make the system more efficient than to move OLD USELESS records out-of-the-way. Useful records are now buried under a pile of efforts to maintain useless old records.

    If government looses the capacity to trace guns more than 11 years after first retail sale then they will lose the capacity to trace the vast majority of our 400 million plus inventory. They can’t do anything with the fresh records which might constitute just 1/4 or so of the whole inventory.

    The public will never consent to abolishing the 4473 form and some (seemingly) “reasonable” record retention requirement. That slippery-slope has long-ago slid.

    The debaters have three alternatives to offer:
    #0 – no records whatsoever;
    #1 – a record making and keeping requirement that “seems” reasonable
    #2 – a record making and keeping requirement that seems ideal but really serves no purpose.

    We are best off persuading the voters that #2 is counter-productive. Better #1.

    We are wasting our time trying to sell the voters on #0 if – for whatever flawed belief – they won’t listen.

    • “We are wasting our time trying to sell the voters on #0 if – for whatever flawed belief – they won’t listen.”

      A very simple truth is that the overwhelming majority of those that truly need this website the most will never be here. Many will never get out of Twitter long enough to even know TTAG exists.

    • “The gun controllers are never going to get an effective registration scheme working.”

      An old Russian proverb with a very large grain of truth :

      “Don’t let the best be the enemy of the good enough.”

      If they can get at least some of it now, they will accept that.

      It’s from the Leftist Scum playbook, the concept of ‘nudge’. Take every small gain, and over time, get what you really want.

      I have firearms that literally have no paper trail that can be followed. They were manufactured at a time when when serializing was not always done. I paid cash for them from a fellow who died a number of years back.

      They are as far ‘off the radar’ as it gets. The person who will be inheriting them understands why they are so special, and has agreed to only transfer them to someone who will keep the original source confidential…

    • Then the voters need to attempt to amend the Constitution, or be ignored. Each and every such proposal (including your #2 and#3) is blatantly unconstitutional and should therefore be ignored. Your appraisal of voters is pretty skewed, BTW, about my last 10 gun purchases included a 4473, but they were never transmitted to anyone, since I held a carry license a background check was not required. When the 4473 never left the building, the gun is not in any database. I have not heard anyone complaining about that system.

  12. Swallowswell really meant that they would use very small yield tactical nukes…not the really big ones when confiscating yur gunz. Something along the lines of the Davey Crockett system or nuke-enabled LAWS for urban homes. Voila, a whole new Defense industry is born…Motto(s): “Why Kick It when you can Nuke it.” or “A Home that Glows Serves as an Abject Lesson.” or “Bad Guns, Bad Guns…What’cha Gonna Do…..When the Nukes Come Calling for You?”

    • Specialized nuclear weapons exist that can be ‘dialed down’ to be in the 10s of tons range. Hiroshima had a 12,000 ton (12kt) yield…

  13. The 2016 election was the first since the ’80s where the Democrats didn’t feel the need to run various astroturf “Sportsmen for (insert name of Democrat here)” campaigns and ad buys. Clinton and Kerry felt the urge to have carefully-posed pictures of themselves holding 4-figure shotguns like they had a clue which end the bang came out of. Obama had some third-string ex-football player doing radio spots for him: “Well I’m a real gun owner and I’m telling you that Barack Obama isn’t gonna take your guns- that’s just crazy talk!” None of that in ’16. I’ll let the reader insert his own guesses as to why.
    I’ll bet a dollar that you see that sort of thing cropping up again in ’24, though.

    PS- The Feebs can spend thousands of man hours and God only knows how much money to unsuccessfully frame a pack of goobers in Michigan but can’t spare a single minute to deal with a congressman who was having an affair with a foreign intelligence agent? Wow.

  14. Demonrats are in a world of hurt. The likely outcome of mid-terms will be a significant loss of seats in both houses. They don’t have anything or anybody to run on. Gun control used to work but like a broken record, they can’t let it go because it kinda-sorta worked at one time as did the mainstream media when everyone believed CNN…until they didn’t. Biden is extremely unpopular and it didn’t take media bashing 24/7 to do it, he did it all by himself.
    People are sick of being lied to. First there was Russian Collusion, except there wasn’t any, it was Clinton behind it. Now its the Biden crime Family and the Chinese. The laptop was fake….except it’s not. Gun control at this point is extremely unlikely. There isn’t the votes.

    In the end, people don’t believe you rotten scum-bag democrats and your persistent lies.

    • “People are sick of being lied to.”

      They are even sicker of being accused of being something they aren’t, a ‘racist’…

  15. Ok, about the UBC crap. Unenforceable. Even with a national registry. How many firearms are in the hands of the less law abiding? How many more are laying around in desk drawers, nightstands, tool boxes, closets, grand dads footlocker, or under car seats? How would anyone track down those guns? How many are out on farms and ranches far from the nearest FFL holder? Want to try enforcing registration or BG checks in some alley behind the biker bar? Or in the dope trap house?
    Sure, it sounds great on paper. Just as Marxism sounds great in theory. But completely unworkable in the real world.
    Then there is the foolish notion of holding someone responsible for any crime committed with a gun they sold years ago, etc. OK< So can we also hold you responsible if you sell a car and it gets used in a crime? How about a knife? Should we also hold whatever agency that approves the sale accountable if the buyer at some point in the future commits a crime? After all, they permitted the sale.
    Or, conversely, can we hold any government agent accountable if they deny a sale and the person denied is then a victim of a crime?

  16. “It’s true – the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) does not currently maintain a searchable national firearm registry.”

    Anyone who actually believes this is too naive to effctively represent gun owners.
