Swalwell's twitter post / poll / question ...
Just serves as an example of :
When you ask a question , be prepared to hear an answer that you did not want or expect.

When it comes to the 2nd Amendment it should be simple...
If you don't want to own a gun , then don't...at the same time , do not make that choice for others.

Exactly :
Like When women ask :

Do these pants make me look fat?
 
Gun buyback...?
How can someone / something buy "back" , a gun , they never owned in the first place...?
Just where will the money for this "buyback" come from...?
Who gets to set the value of the guns to be "bought back "...?

More importantly why sell a symbol / means of your freedom to the government...?

Since violence has been committed in the names of various religions ....
How 'bout a Bible or Quran "Buy Back"...What...?...You say that is crazy talk?...
Andy
 
Wait, where are these people getting these “assault weapons”? Isn’t the ownership of such by regular John Q. Public types heavily regulated by the federal government?

Didn’t the party that lost the last presidential election stand on a platform of “gun control”? Glad to see they’ve learned so much, keep up the good work. Next election should be a slam dunk...

And, thanks Donald, for being the first POTUS in more than seven decades to address the nation and initiate the celebratory birthday, as he did yesterday... Job well done!!!

No gun is included in the Second Amendment. It specifies a restriction on government, not an allowance for citizens. The Second Amendment doesn’t “apply” to any guns; it applies to government. The right to bear arms - any arms - is guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

Now there is a person who understands the 2A - except I would add that the 2A is not about guns, it is about arms in general, whether they be a stone axe or a warship.

To be fair though - such polls are not scientific - it is just the usual case that more pro-gun people showed up or knew about the poll than anti-gun people, or who cared to vote on it. Maybe it is somewhat representative, maybe not - posting a poll on Twitter is not a good way to truly determine public sentiment.

OTOH - the Second Amendment is about a Natural Right. You can't vote away Natural Rights - only the freedom to exercise them.

Both true.

I would also guesstimate that far fewer pro-2A folks use Twitter than ant-2A folks. Just a feeling, nothing scientific about it.

Similar feeling regarding most “main stream” social media. Again tho, not scientific.

So, given my feeling about the amount of pro-2A vs anti-2A folks on there, he got routed.
