Dems to confiscate guns if Trump secures border? - WND

3-4 minutes
Democrats are warning that President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border to fund a wall sets a precedent that would allow a future Democratic president to enact sweeping gun control or climate-change measures.

Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro recently told MSNBC that if the Supreme Court upholds Trump’s emergency declaration, “it does open up new avenues for future presidents to take action.”

“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,” he said. reported another Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., tweeted she stands “in solidarity with those rallying across the country against the President’s manufactured national emergency.”

“It’s time we address the actual emergencies plaguing our nation: gun violence, lack of access to health care, and climate change,” she said. noted the Democratic-controlled House has pushed two bills on gun control. Last week, the House voted to expand background checks for purchases at gun shows, online or for a private transfer. And it passed a bill requiring gun dealers to wait 10 days to get answers for a background check.

But pointed to legislation that would limit any curbing of gun rights during an emergency.

In 2005, the bipartisan “Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act” passed the House with 322 votes and the Senate with 84 votes.

The law includes a “[p]rohibition on confiscation of firearms.” During an emergency, it says, the government cannot “require registration of any firearm for which registration is not required by Federal, State, or local law.”

Nevertheless, Emily Taylor, a Houston lawyer who specializes in Second Amendment issues told the statute doesn’t protect the private transfer of firearms, and the buying and selling of ammunition.

She said that if Trump’s border emergency declaration is upheld, a future president could test a gun emergency with the Supreme Court.

“We are afraid it will send us down a road we don’t want to go down if the precedent is extended,” Taylor said.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., also a 2020 hopeful, tweeted that gun violence, climate change and the opioid epidemic are emergencies, but “Donald Trump’s ridiculous wall is not an emergency.”

“It’s time we address the actual emergencies plaguing our nation: gun violence, lack of access to health care, and climate change,” she said.

The actual emergencies plaguing our nation include (but are not limited to) a socialist attack on the foundational principles of America. The issues listed above are not within the federal government's delegated powers. Socialists (like Barack Obama) aren't happy with that, and in moments of weakness, express dissatisfaction with our Constitution because it limits federal powers to those actually within the province of a national government in a free society.

Harris and Ocasio-Cortez and the others are in the Obama camp; they believe that they are justified in forcing their 'transformation' on the country, and accordingly attenuating our liberty.

But they aren't, and if they are, then we are equally justified in taking them out before they do.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
