Swalwell made it clear he will be making gun confiscation his number one priority if President.
“I talked to kids who sit in their classrooms afraid they’ll be the next victims of gun violence. They see Washington [D.C.] do nothing about it after the moments of silence,” Swalwell stated. “They see lawmakers who love their guns more than our kids and none of that is going to change until we get a leader who is willing to go big on the issues we take on, be bold on the solutions we offer, and do good in the way that we govern. I’m ready to solve these problems. I’m ready to solve these problems. I’m running for president of the United States.”
Swalwell is famous for threatening Conservatives on Twitter that he will use military nukes on them if they don’t turn in their guns.
Swalwell has also been one of the leading voices in the Russia conspiracy against President Trump even after it has been disproven.
