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.

Rabbis Say its OK to Kill Goyim  

Yaacov Yosef  3:23  


Please do describe the genocide that these Rabi's are committing against the Goyim... where is it and who is doing it?  Alleged conspiracies to poison the food and too pollute the water is ludicrous as they breath the same air, eat many of the same foods and drink the same water.   They and their children are vaccinated with the same vaccines...

Every religious group in the world has a few radicals and evil men in their midst... that doesn't mean that they are all united to engage the evil purposes of the few. 

When " law" becomes TYRANNY, REBELLION BECOMES DUTY!!!! LooNS on the Left are so fatally shortsighted in not realizing that by " gutting" the Second Amendment, and taking GUNS from the law abiding CITIZENS, ONLY THE THUGS, AND CRIMINALS WILL BE ARMED!!!! WHICH WILL ENCOURAGE MORE, MORE, MORE GUN VIOLENCE, ON EVERYONE, CONSERVATIVE AND LIBTARD ALIKE!!!!

Let him declare ML so that we can go in and pull the Traitor , with his feet up on the RESOLUTE desk of America , and educate him on what we do to TRAITORS .

A somewhat related note:  Have you seen Greg Abbott's presentation on The Texas Plan calling for an Article V  at

Oren Long

Although the actual terms of the amendments remain to be sorted out, it seems that the criteria of that 2/3 or 3/4 of the states that the Texas Plan is proposing as the number for changes is too high. Since the U.S. is a Republic where the majority wins, then what is the rationale for other than a majority, and if there is one, why 2/3 or 3/4 and not 51%, 55% or 60%?

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
