This Politician Thinks the Pistol Grip is the “Most Deadly” Part of a Rifle

There is nothing “common sense” about calling pistol grips deadly.

In a recent interview with Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California, MSNBC Asked: “How would you define an assault weapon? One common criticism of the original 1994 Assault Weapons Ban is that it was fairly narrow and gun manufacturers were able to sell weapons that offered similar firepower after making relatively small changes.”

I would stick largely to the definition that has been used before, recognizing it would have to evolve as manufacturers try to come up with technical ways around it. I’d make sure we get rid of detachable magazines and the pistol grip — to me that’s the feature that make it most deadly. -Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.

Yes. This anti-gun politician is so ignorant of firearms he literally thinks the pistol grip is the deadliest part of a rifle.

I am at a complete loss for words.

These politicians are fearmongering things they don’t understand in the slightest, and then get upset when we don’t agree to “common sense gun legislation.”

There is nothing “common sense” about calling pistol grips deadly.
