CNN Op-Ed Calls For Obama to Declare “National State of Emergency” to Gut 2nd Amendment

Martial law-style move would “scare” gun rights groups into submission

null

A CNN op-ed piece by a leading gun control advocate has called on President Obama to declare a “national state of emergency” so that he can gut the Second Amendment.

Elliot Fineman, of the National Gun Victims Action Council, wants the president to follow through on his recent gun control efforts by “monitoring ammunition sales and banning those on the terror watch list from buying guns.”

This could be achieved without congressional approval by Obama enacting a “National State of Emergency (that) scares the gun lobby and pro-gun lawmakers,” writes Fineman.

In other words, Fineman is calling on Obama to use martial-law style powers in order to water down the Second Amendment and neutralize efforts by gun rights groups to oppose such a move.

“Why have you not declared a state of emergency to halt the Gun Violence Epidemic?” Fineman implores Obama.

petition linked from the CNN article invites support for a “National Emergencies Act” that would hand Obama “the power and responsibility to declare a state of emergency when the government lacks the procedures and capacity to address an unchecked natural or man-made public health epidemic.”

The story is couched in emotional terms given that Fineman lost his son to a murderer who was able to legally purchase a gun despite previously being in a mental institution.

Fineman also demands that Obama, “force the gun manufacturers to make smart guns (guns that will only fire if the fingerprint of the owner matches the trigger) by requiring that the government only purchase smart guns.”

Whether this would make the hundreds of millions of firearms without smart technology illegal by default is not addressed in the article.

As we have previously highlighted, Second Amendment advocates are warning that Americans who hold “alternative views” could be declared mentally ill and have their firearms seized. Americans who follow “prepper” lifestyles have already had their guns taken as a result of falsely being labeled mentally ill.

Looting and Assault Hood Rats and Thugs are having a Field day with Barry and his Crew Running the Game of Blame Whitey Blame the Cop's everyone but the lack of a family unit in poor Black Neighborhoods, they have been lied to for over 40 Year's by the Democrats and the Hater's that fill there Bank Account's with the Blood Money from all the Black citizens minding there own bossiness and get shot or even killed, if Barry the King Rat had any feelings for the poor black Community ? does he let his justice department Do Nothing but add full to the fire ? this POS has brought nothing but Shame and disaster to America and around the world !  May he and all that fallow him roast in Hell  !

  That doesn't help anybody expect him.

Molon labe!

Locked and loaded !

Have Been for Two Years.....

We need to ban cars, trucks, planes, buses, glass, bricks, axes, butterknifes and many very, very, very dangerous things. Then we to ban people, most animals and so on. Safety first!!!

Just remember something that most Americans still do not get.......

      The MARXIST/COMMUNIST/ISLAMISTS must get guns out of the hands of the general population.....the lawabiding citizens, in order to disempower them.  A tyrant, hell-bent on destruction of our Constitutional Republic cannot gain complete dictatorial control until he has completed that task.  It is not the mass shooters, jihadists and criminals on the streets that Obama wants to disarm............IT IS US.  

     THAT IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF OBAMA AND HIS OUTLAW MARXIST REGIME !

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
