Earlier this week, Cam ran a story on former Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks about gun control. The truth, though, is that he’s far from the first to talk about all the fire and destruction the United States military would visit upon citizens, either. Perhaps the most egregious example is that of Rep. Eric Swalwell.
The failed presidential candidate once joked that a rebellion against a tyrannical American government would be short-lived because the United States has nukes.
However, this anti-gun talking point that the American military might is simply too powerful to be stopped by a few guys with rifles betrays a fundamental understanding in how a rifle might be used to defend against tyranny.
