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.

Mark...

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 http://therightscoop.com/awesome-gov-greg-abbott-calls-for-a-consti...

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%?

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
