I wonder how many people can say, unconstitutional?
They cannot deploy troops in America. But they are going to do it anyway. This isn't going to end well. It seems like SHTF is going to happen sooner rather than later.
Edit to add -
I don't mean people firing on the troops, but whether the troops will obey an illegal order or not. Guess we are about to find out.

The National Governors Association opposes a Defense Department proposal to expand the military’s authority to respond to domestic disasters.
In a letter Friday to Paul N. Stockton, assistant secretary of Defense for homeland defense and Americas’ security affairs, the governors said the proposal could lead to confusion over who’s in charge during domestic emergencies and unnecessarily duplicate response efforts.
“We are concerned that the legislative proposal you discuss in your letter would invite confusion on critical command and control issues, complicate interagency planning, establish stove-piped response efforts, and interfere with governors’ constitutional responsibilities to ensure the safety and security of their citizens,” Govs. Jim Douglas , R-Vt., and Joe Manchin III , D-W.Va., wrote on behalf of the group.
The Pentagon did not immediately respond Monday to a request for comment on the letter
The long-awaited debut of Obama at the UN is happening right on schedule. Obama will chair “a special meeting of the U.N, Security Council on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament”. According to U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, that meeting will take place on Sept. 24 during the annual summit of the U.N. General Assembly.
