The nuclear option in the Democratic controlled House of Representative has been redefined.
The response from Joe Biggs, a combat veteran to new House Democrat Swalwell’s proposed legislation next year to outlaw military-style semi-automatic assault weapons:
So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.
To which Rep. Swalwell decided to reply – in a not tyrannical-sounding way at all…
“And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.”
