By Breitbart. Roughly 18 people attended Democrat presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell’s (D-CA) speech Monday near the National Rifle Association (NRA) headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia.
On June 14, Breitbart News reported that Swalwell would be delivering a speech on his gun controls near the NRA headquarters.
A video published by Politico shows that Swalwell used the speech to push confiscatory laws for AR-15s and other commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles, as well as a repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). That act protects gun manufacturers from suits in cases considered frivolous, such as when a legally manufactured and legally sold gun is stolen and used in a crime.
Swalwell: It is time to ban and buy back every single assault weapon — making sure first and foremost no more assault weapons are manufactured in the future but also with a plan to buy back the 15 million that are in circulation in our communities today https://t.co/B3RTSYIAfN pic.twitter.com/d9fAmUrB0r

Democratic Presidential Candidate Eric Swalwell Releases Gun Control Plan
By CBS News. Rep. Eric Swalwell released an extensive gun violence prevention plan Monday that includes an assault-style rifle ban and buyback and new legal requirements for gun ownership.
Swalwell, a Democratic presidential candidate, has repeatedly said his presidential platform would be centered on gun violence prevention, and on Monday called for significant investments in mental health and safety programs. The plan does not go as far as some other Democratic gun control plans, such as Sen. Cory Booker’s proposal, which would require potential gun owners to go through a process that includes an interview, passing a gun safety course and background check, and being fingerprinted.
Swalwell’s plan calls for those who refuse to give up their assault rifles to be prosecuted unless they keep those guns at hunting lodges or shooting ranges. He also took aim at gun manufactures, saying the Protection for Lawful Commerce in Guns Act, a federal law that protects gun manufacturers from civil liability, should be repealed. Additionally, he said gun companies should be forced to stop manufacturing assault-style rifles. . .
But Swalwell’s plan also includes the creation of a national firearm registry, a policy pro-gun groups like the NRA have long opposed. (Read more from “Democratic Presidential Candidate Eric Swalwell Releases Gun Control Plan” HERE)
