Add another one to the Democratic candidate for President casserole, kids. 

On Monday, Eric Swalwell, a three-term California Congressman became the 18th Democrat to announce a run for president in 2020.

With an incredibly crowded field of Democrat candidates already in the race, Swalwell is placing his bets on gun reform as the winning issue that will help him stand out from the pack.

Editor’s note: Yawn.

Swalwell is one of the youngest candidates in the field, along with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, both 37.

Business Insider notes that many people their age and younger were teenagers during the Columbine and Virginia Tech mass shootings, and as Buttigieg has phrased it on multiple occasions, are “part of the “school shooting generation.”

In other words, the violent disruption to the healthy, emotional development of teenagers tends to override their ability to address issues from a position of traditional logic and reasoning, thereby making them experts on stamping out violence and mass shootings.
