Swalwell leads 2020 Dem presidential field

OK, the title of this post is misleading. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who made it official Tuesday that he is running for President, doesn't lead the Democrat field in any significant poll. That said, he has come right out of the gate to take the lead as the most despicable demagogue of the candidates to declare (and that's saying something).

As I said in a post last week, Swalwell has zero shot to be the Dem presidential nominee in 2020. However, he is definitely a useful idiot for most of the other Democrat candidates in that he's actually conveying what they're thinking regarding guns and the Second Amendment. If Swalwell's rhetoric is soundly rejected, he'll gain no traction in the POTUS race but can continue his demagoguery in a California Congressional District where he's captured at least 70% of the vote each of the past three election cycles. In the meantime, the other Dem presidential candidates can swoop in with less crazy gun proposals while incrementally moving toward their ultimate goal of confiscation.

It appears to still be too much to ask for these candidates to actually have even scintilla of knowledge of an industry they are looking to heavily regulate.

One might note that "buying back" would imply that the government sold them to us. Um, wait.

It also strikes me that when the Democrats are supporting infanticide and euthanasia while they are making it all but impossible to openly differ with their policies for fear of massive retribution--re-education camps as it were--my willingness to enact another totalitarian policy of gun control becomes a lot less.
