2020 Democrat Swalwell Goes BANANAS About Gun Control

Here’s what the nut-job said…

Democrat presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell claims his confiscatory “assault weapons” ban would have prevented the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School.

He made this claim in response to a tweet by John Lott, wherein Lott asked why Swalwell was pushing gun controls that “wouldn’t have stopped one mass public shooting this century”:

Swalwell responded, “Who wants to tell John Lott that if my assault weapons ban and buy-back had been in place before Sandy Hook or Parkland, those children wouldn’t have been killed?”

Swalwell’s claim overlooks a number of important facts.

It overlooks the fact that the Sandy Hook gunman was armed with a handgun in addition to his rifle. He could could have used the handgun the same way that the Virginia Beach shooter or the Virginia Tech shooter did. Those two attackers killed a total of 44 people using handguns alone.

And this leads to the second overlooked fact, which is that handguns are the weapon of choice for mass public shooters.

With the benefit of time an attacker can kill numerous innocents, regardless of the gun used.
