The peoples Republic of stupid snips is at it again, and this time you better be paying attention to this snip. Because it has massive implications. From the Green New Deal to Medicare for all to every other asinine thought that ever seeped up from the bowls of hell itself.

They're not kidding in any way.



Democrats are ramping up warnings that President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the southern border opens the door for a future president to—among other things—pursue sweeping gun control measures without Congress.


Take the guns and EFF due process.

Actual quotes :



“I will come into office with a strong belief that climate change is a national emergency, that the fact that so many people in this country die because of gun violence, that is a national emergency,”


Right people.

Because the climate is out to get you. Gunz are the villain!

Harris






Pelosi

Emergenc y powers could be used for gun control

Warren.



They're all parroting the same asinine snip.

Better buckle up people.

Some truly FASCIST snip is coming.

I retort.

You decide.

It takes a police state to save the planet or some dumb snip.

I don't see how a Presidential Emergency order can eliminate an amendment.

The left has been trying to eliminate that amendment since FDR.

And they've been rather successful.

Let's start with their guns and the guns of their security.

There is actually a substantial body of case law on this exact point. The feds cannot use an emergency as an excuse to confiscate guns or register them (outside of regular requirements).

What the Dems are not grasping is, what Trump did is just moving funding around, in a way that is explicitly provided for in Federal law.

Maybe not the same thing but the Patriot act circumvented the constitution and got signed off on by Bush and Obama.

Politicians have become pros at circumventing the constitution.

Try to take guns away from Americans, and see what happens. It won't be pretty.

Go back to Carters FiSA Act and CLintons Omnibus Counter Terrorism Act.

Then Go back to 1934 and FDR.

It's pretty easy to argue.

FDR National Firearms Act.

Johnsons Gun Control Act.

Clintons Assault weapons ban/ Brady Act.

All circumvent constitutional protections.

The two parties have really gone all out in their tit for tats, mainly out of spite. The dems pulled a 180 on immigration solely because that was one of Trumps biggest campaign points.

When he declared the National Emergency My main concern was that this would set precedence for times to come. I realize National Emergencies aren't anything new, but we've seen a trend of executive powers finding ways to implement their interests and agenda.

I expect that to increase if anything.

As hard as the Democrats are trying to keep the border open, it makes one wonder how many of them have their fingers in the drug cartel and human trafficking money.

Because if they weren’t afraid of losing big dollars, they’d have no dog in the border security fight. With no dog in the fight, they wouldn’t be making threats against the US Constitution and Bill of Rights to get their way. Their traitorous ways become increasingly visible daily.

Democrats, trading your freedoms for their under the table income daily!

Trump emergency act is to FOLLOW LAW.
An emergency act to limit guns is to BREAK LAW.
Not at all the same.

This is why Trump has been stacking the courts with constitutional judges. Any attempt to confiscate guns by Executive Order will absolutely not hold up in court. If it does, we no longer have a Constitution and the US government has no legal power to govern. At that point, there is no choice but to openly revolt.

50 USC does not grant the right for a President to remove Constitutional protections. It gives a President the ability to temporarily bypass Federal laws, as long as those laws are openly specified and Congress can vote to terminate the emergency declaration.

I am amazed at how so many people have apparently not even read the law, but think themselves an expert on it anyway. That's including the self-proclaimed "Master Legislator."

The real story here is the DNC is realizing that their challenges will not withstand Supreme Court scrutiny. I'd bet money that they have already been turned down in their ill-conceived attempt to use the courts as some sort of dictatorial magic wand to get their way.
