Another Democratic Mayor Uses Covid-19 As An Excuse To Ban Gun Sales

Remember when New Orleans Democratic mayor, Ray Nagin, ordered the confiscation of lawfully owned firearms during Hurricane Katrina? The City of New Orleans later admitted the firearm confiscations carried out by Nagin was unconstitutional and illegal, after a deal to resolve a lawsuit filed by gun lobbying groups. Nagin was later convicted on 20 of 21 counts of bribery, wire fraud, tax evasion and other charges in February of 2014.

Today, the current New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) signed a coronavirus emergency order last week allowing her to ban the sale and transportation of firearms.


The declaration declaring the mayor’s power to restrict gun sales and transportation says she is “empowered, if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.”

The Second Amendment Foundation responded to Mayor Contrell's declaration, by threatening to file a lawsuit over Second Amendment infringement, just as they did back in 2005, after Mayor Nagin's gun grab during Hurricane Katrina.

SAF executive vice president Alan Gottlieb stated, “People legally licensed to carry should not have their right to do so suddenly curtailed because some politician panicked. We didn’t allow it before, and we’re not going to allow it now.”

Just recently, another Democrat, Champaign Illinois Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen, included ordinances that let her ban the sale of firearms and ammunition as well as booze.


Among the powers Feinen gained after signing the executive order was the power to ban the sale of guns, ammunition, alcohol, and gasoline. Feinen could also cut off access to individuals' gas, water, or electricity. The city also has the ability to "take possession of private property" or order the temporary closing of all bars or liquor stores.

I believe that some power hungry Democrats yearn for totalitarian control and are just itching to enact their unconstitutional gun policies by any means necessary. They won't let a crisis go to waste to use their "executive power" to squash law abiding American's Second Amendment rights.

LOL your going to stop the sale of guns, and booze?

That's not asking for trouble, at all.

These Mayors need to just stop. Idiots.

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

Enough is enough...not one more inch. There is no provision in the Constitution, to my knowledge, to suspend the the liberties and freedoms protected by the Constitution!
Remember, the Constitution does not GIVE you rights, it acknowledges and protects your already EXISTING rights as a human being from a potentially overreaching government. A government we now can see reaching out to squash our rights in the name of protecting us from ourselves.

I see more and more reports about "the government isn't telling/helping us enough of what we should be doing". What happened to people taking care of THEMSELVES!?!? Take precautions. If you don't know what precautions to take, do some basic research. Take control of your lives!!

Nagin is in Federal prison. Doesn't take long though for another black community gun grabber to pop up. It's like whack a mole with these mayors. They will always take a shot at it because gun violence in black communities is their main source of grief. Nevermind the rest of the country has gun violence under control.

The thing we should all ask ourselves, is how do we go about this, when the government can so easily restrict our freedoms and control our lives in a moments notice?

I read this comment from someone at another website that says it all:

"Now the powers that be know just how quick the masses are to panic, fight over toilet rolls, and beg for government intervention.

Frankly, they don't need terrorists or alien invasions to herd us into a globalist agenda. We just demonstrated to them that all they need is a relatively harmless virus and media aggrandizement. And a virus has the perfect amount of deniable plausibility.

We showed them just how weak and docile and afraid we really are. Watch as the freedoms begin to fly yet again."

A home made still tastes just as bad, but is a lot cheaper.

Hell, even home brew can be a form of art. Be Self Sustained, Everyone...

And build a moat. a large moat, filled with alligators. And piranhas. And vipers. With a guillotine stuck right next to your front porch.

And have two large statues of behemoths wielding axes and hammers, clad in armour on either side of your front door.

'coz no one's stealing my still...

No, she isnt. Neither are the people who elected her.

Honestly, I dont understand why otherwise seemingly intelligent people care what the Democrat administrations in these crummy big cities care do. Of course they are weird, outrageous and dictatorial......they are Democrats, its what they do. They are elected by idiot, brain washed Democrats too lazy, unimaginative, unintelligent to do anything other than squat in the filth these cities are and collect their freebies handed out by the Democrat politicians in exchange for votes.

The irony of course is that these cities, filled with criminal gangs and utterly corrupt police departments, can enact myriad gun and ammo laws only to see them roundly flauted. This idiot Mayor just hyped up the black market in guns and ammo!

This is my gospel! I do as much as I can every single day to have as much control over my life as is possible. Because, it is MY LIFE and I know what's best for myself. Not the government!
You can't get anything from the government they haven't already taken from YOU!

I have a couple neighbor's that make their own ammo. No impact on them. Another Democrat rule without much thought put into it. NO is also a small city. Takes 20 minutes to drive somewhere else. La ain't called "Sportman's Paradise" for nothing. Idiots.

You can distil it out, just take a few runs. get rid of the aromatics that come across.

Or do as I do, just mix it with a strong tropical punch


never been incapable of using a toilet than the one time I drank the wort from a 12 hour turbo yeast that had blown the air lock one fateful saturday and had oozed stinking foam all over the place, till I had to use a food grade hose into a bucket of water.. now that's an airlock.

suffice to say, you can make a turbo yeast at home, just gotta feed the little buggers the right buffet, and you can brew up a storm.


and in the coming apocalypse, fermented anything edible, just might make the worst beer you can imagine, but it will be made. This I have absolute confidence in.

Oh and ETA, I'm sure you are aware anyway, but the cold will keep the yeast sedate.. definitely get a heater strap. keep it low on the tub.. especially if it's not tolerant yeast.. or expect a slow ferment. but as long as it is moving the air lock, it's working. Pitching more would yield the same, imo, but yield an even more yeasty brew.. but hey, I love vegemite, so...


Signed,
A legal distiller in my state.
