Kathleen, how much do you value your choices? It is not just guns with this President but he is attacking everything we want as a free people. I know as I have lived it, born in 1945, and am very much alive and well here. Did Obama give the enemy, the drug cartel the assault weapons to remove a few enemies of the MOB infiltrations from Mexico? Obama is not a radical Socialist because he does not support citizens rights! He is against our rights and that first term should put it on all our blackboards! He wants FED total control and we have too much now! Kennedy had to enact some drastic measures, and why? The Supreme Court kept refusing to give rights to all! Case after case the courts refused our desires and demands! It is this way now. Liberals are the problem as Lincoln found out. He was even killed by one of the earliest Liberals!

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall
President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.
Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.
Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.
And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.
Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.
Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.
Via Law and Crime:
As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.
“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”
Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.
“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
