Don't think it can't happen?
It has happened during other times in history during emergencies...
It starts with Hotels, and businesses. Where does it end? Personal farms, hoarders supplies/food... etc...

“The mayor can confiscate property. Hopefully, that’s never going to be required,” Stavins said. “But I did just read in California where there was a necessity to take over a hotel … to isolate people during a quarantine. Now this is a pretty extreme case, but it’s possible, and it may be required to be done in a more immediate fashion.”..................
“The ordinance contemplates a wide range of emergency situations. Whether any of these steps will be necessary … is not completely known at this time,” he told the News-Gazette.

Maybe time to start talking away from the robber barons?

I don't think that would go over well here in MI.

They'd either end up aerated from bullets, or nailed to the wall via crossbow arrows.

I'd think rhat a hotel, which would likely be making 0 income during quarantines and the stupid travel restrictions, would be looking for a way to offset those losses. After being used as a quarantine facility Uncle Sam comes in and everybody makes money.

I'd be more suspicous of their friends and donors being the ones who get used for these purposes, then they pad the bills for the tax-payers in the end.

And this is why this should not be allowed ...

Hey, it's an emergency power to be used to deal with this emergency, but now I can abuse it to get back at those I don't like because ... well, power ... duh!

This is why we have the 2nd Amendment.

It may happen. We may need to turn hotels into hospitals before this is over and in cases like this I would be OK with that. I am also from Michigan.

As temporary health care ... OK, but as temporary incarceration for the homeless? Do you know what those rooms are likely to look like when that's done? Who pays to refurbish those rooms?

I live in a rural area just outside a city.

I have just one thing to say to any mayor.

Come get some.

The 2nd Amendment states.. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution
refers to a pre-existing right to keep and bear arms: A well regulated Militia, being
necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear
Arms, shall not be infringed.

According to some of the responses in this thread, the following Amendment
will better reflect how they interpret the above Amendment.
