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


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.

There can be little doubt that if Obama declared  martail law, he would be signing his own death warrant.

In his bullpoop session Thursday evening on CNN along with the alligator tears he repeated his lies about weapons confiscation. Even though he was challenged with the statement that his fiat unConstitutional attempt to make laws with his Executive Orders have not and would not stop criminals, he skirted that with BS about a "conspiracy" theory going around about him wanting to take every ones guns. While what he is doing and the HR 4269 that is before congress is identifying and is a preparation to take away every gun that they say are "military grade" as specified in the U.N. gun confiscation plan which John Kerry un Constitutionally signed onto. And that  would limit gun ownership to guns that the GOVERNMENT determines is all you need to hunt game. Additionally, the stupid a** was talking about lockup safety devices for guns. The idiot must think Americans are stupid. If you are attacked you tell who ever it is to hold up until you can get a key or remember the combination number for your locked up pea shooter. If you see any indication of U.N. vehicles or know of ANY U.N. activity going on anywhere in the country other that the U.N. headquarters in New York pass the info around. Lets keep our eyes and ears open. Irregardless of what Obama said about the military operations here in our country last year, they were not a necessary part of any military effort we are involved in the rest of the world. That could well be a prelude of things to come.

W, if we are not at war here in the USA by the end of 2016, I will be surprised.

Unless Congress approved it, John Kerry's dumbazz can sign onto all of the ignorant azz deals he wants.

IF Congress approved something like this, they would be done and there would be an immediate response. People are sick of this crap.

"There can be little doubt that if Obama declared martail law, he would be signing his own death warrant."

And the kicker is that it won't be the talkers that would see the deed done, but rather the   -trained- , - quiet- , -doers-  . Makes you wonder if that understanding is the motive behind the Obama adminstrations' efforts to catagorically strip military veterans of the right to keep and bear arms. Mental instability of our war heros? Really??

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

No it will put this Country into a Revolution

going after the mental health industry would be ok,however trying to throw out the second amendment by force is plain crazy. I understand this mans grief but to hold legal law abiding gun owners responsible for thecriminal actions of illegal aliens,terrorists,drug dealing thugs and whoever else that goes about committing despicable crimes killing innocent people. This problem ain't going to get better especially if these news people continue to make big productions out of these miserable little bastards who commit these crimes. As for the mental health people there is a place that can put a stop to quite a number of killings, laws should be changed to allow for holding dangerous people against their objections,and allowing the doctors to discuss their patients with the families and law enforcement to put these dangerous type people on a watch list in the event they are out in the public and also have a medical professional monitor these patients for taking their medication correctly and changes in their mental state.

It's time for a Coup.  Arm yourselves and when it happens the need for taking out the news services should be done at the same time. 

Roger L. Wilson Sr.  you have that right.



ONCE THE BOLSHEVIKS REALIZE HITLERY CAN'T EVEN WIN THE DEMO COMMO VOTE. SHE IS DONE. THE PARTY THAT GAVE US OBAMA BIN LENIN IS NOT GIVING UP THE REVOLUTION TO AMERICANS. One thing we all need to realize is that when you get to the top it is all the same people. As sure as Hanoi John Kerry the Teheran troll was supported by Bain capital his largest contributor. That is why we must elect an outsider. The best combo is President Trump and Vice president Cruz. Aren't you tired of loser excuses. Oh if we only had been fully funded we could have stopped that nuke from going through customs. Aren't you tired of seeing 350 pound murderers in ACLU  cap and gown PHOTOS. WHY NOT SHOW THE COP WHO SHOT HIM IN HIS CRIB IN DIAPERS WEARING A BADGE AND A HOLSTER? It has got to be Trump.. We have to break the evil spell cast on us by the cloven hoof party. Rino zombies are even worse than the walking demo commos.  Trump wins the title the Scarlet Pimpernel. He is here, He is there. He is everywhere. Yesterday Vermont, today two towns in Iowa. In ten minutes he will be on the escalator in New York. You want jobs it is Trump.

Visiting family in New york last night I come to find out one relative retired from trucking just received notice from his union that his monthly pension is being reduced by $500.00 a month. He feels bad for a buddy who worked 39 years for the same union. His pension is being reduced $2,000 a month.
Watching this stock market this week is scary. The experts will have all the answers but that is not going to get your money back. You never want to go to the bank and the teller asks you why do want the hundred now? there are three letters that come with President trumps title. TNS. Take no shiite.
Let us cometogether now and stop the Rinos from playing DNC divide n conquer. Besides we have to get ready for demo commo door no 2. How much will Soros pay for Hillary to go away. OUR ENEMIES WE WILL DUMP. AMERICAN OIL WE WILL PUMP. THE DEMO COMMOS WE WILL STUMP.

It's all political and he cares absolutely nothing about solving the problem of American Insanity inflicted and he's a Muslim who supports Terrotist with Tax Dollars

These idiots seem to forget that Obama took an oath to defend the Constitution and that we DO have a military that can and WILL take his azz out of office if he even TRies to get totally stupid. Once he as broken the law, THEY DO NOT lawfully have to follow his orders,even as the supposed President.

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

Likely is not a roaring epidemic, but rather a barely perceptible criminal background noise when considered against the size of the national population.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
