Eric “Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell, the California Democrat who once suggested the government could use nuclear weapons if American citizens refuse to give up their guns, went on a Twitter rant essentially saying the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is eager to trample on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

“It’s Friday, so call me crazy, but I can’t wait for next week. On Wednesday, our @HouseJudiciary Committee will have the first hearing on gun violence in 8 years. A new Congress is putting your right to be safe over any other rights,” he said.

“Those days are over. Your life matters. Your child’s freedom to learn without fear matters. Your ability to go to church without going through a metal detector matters. And young black men, who we lose every day in our cities to gun violence, matter.”
