She is just saying that if Trump wants to push the executive power to the max, then the next democratic president will do so too. Basically saying it sets a standard for working around congress-president agreements..
Trump got a bad deal for the wall, and now is using power to override that..
It's not good for the constitution. One man shouldn't make all the big decisions, despite left vs right turmoil, or presidential opinion..
It is quite disconcerting, disturbing, that the left, under a Democrat president, would use their ideological agenda as the basis for declaring a national emergency. For Speaker Pelosi to hint that an individual act of violence presents grounds for a Democrat president to enact a national emergency is Constitutionally dangerous. I must ask, Ms. Pelosi, what would be the specific details of a national emergency on “gun violence?” Does this mean that by way of an executive order, action, the left will erase the Second Amendment? Part of our Constitution’s individual Bill of Rights? Does this mean that a Democrat president would authorize a violation of the Fourth Amendment and nationally violate due process criminalize millions of innocent Americans by way of firearms confiscation . . . forcibly?
A National Emergency Declaration cannot override the Constitution.
As much as I don't like Pelosi, she does makes a good point. Mass shootings have become a common thing in America. I have relatives in Canada that can't understand why the gun laws in America are so lax.

Arizona is a gun loving state. There is no denying that. But I have already heard from many many gun owners that they are waiting for the day. Most Ex military.
