The Man Who Said the Government Can Nuke Gun Owners is Running for President

Congressman Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California, will reportedly announce next week he is entering the 2020 race for the presidency. From The Hill

The Atlantic reported Thursday that Swalwell will announce his plans during an appearance on CBS's "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," where he will be joined by Cameron Kasky, a survivor of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Swalwell, who is hosting a town hall on gun control next week in Florida, did not confirm his plans to The Atlantic, but said he thinks gun control should be a top issue in 2020.

Swalwell plans to run on a platform of gun control, which based on his previous comments, means confiscation. 

Last year, Swalwell reminded gun owners that if they do not comply with Democrat confiscation efforts, they could be nuked by the government.

Even Bill Maher isn't buying Swalwell's claims he isn't "coming for your guns."
