It Begins: Liberals Using Coronavirus Crisis to Impose Gun Restrictions

Totalitarians never let a crisis go to waste. Even in the United States.

Using coronavirus declarations intended to free up emergency funds and slow the spread of disease, anti-gun politicians are imposing sweeping bans on gun sales and gun transfers.

“(I)n a State of Disaster Declaration dated March 17th, the (Saluda County, South Carolina) county council outlined a list of actions to respond to the coronavirus outbreak, including the power to “suspend or limit the sale, dispensing or transportation of…firearms,’” Gunpowder Magazine reports.

“This declaration is the same language recently used by the City of New Orleans, which is notorious for sending government agents door-to-door to seize legally owned firearms from residents in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, leaving them defenseless against looters and other criminals,” Gunpowder Magazine reports.

Officials in Champaign, Illinois also imposed a complete ban on the sale of guns, and officials across the country are planning to also ban gun sales, claiming gun prohibition is necessary to deal with coronavirus.

More troubling than banning gun sales is the recent history of using emergency declarations to begin the door-to-door confiscation of guns.

“Local police officers began confiscating weapons from civilians in preparation for a forced evacuation of the last holdouts still living here, as President Bush steeled the nation for the grisly scenes of recovering the dead that will unfold in coming days,” the New York Times reported in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “Police officers and federal law enforcement agents scoured the city carrying assault rifles seeking residents who have holed up to avoid forcible eviction, as well as those who are still considering evacuating voluntarily to escape the city’s putrid waters.”

Once again, mayors and even governors are considering banning the possession of firearms, claiming it is necessary to protect first responders.

  1. The people over the years asked for this because of their stupidity in not know who the person really was or what they had in mind after they got into office.

    • The process of running for office is so difficult and expensive and it has been made so by the very rich who are determined to take control.
      YOU try to run for Senate. See how impossible it is for a regular guy

  2. “Once again, mayors and even governors are considering banning the possession of firearms, claiming it is necessary to protect first responders.”
    As stated above article. So when does a lae abiding gun owner going to fire upon “first responders”??!!!

    • when they have FBI written on their backs. Issue search warrants with guns blazing like in Waco Texas. Using military equipment to gas & burn them 45 days later. Shooting children in the back, blowing a mother’s head off (two hundred yards away) while holding a 13 month old assault baby in her arms like Ruby Ridge Idaho. Turning a blind eye (no red flags) when black panthers threaten white people at a polling place in Pennsylvania. There are more examples…

  3. “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin

  4. Bella Pelosi, better known as Dracula. Sneaked in a 1 billion Dollar funding for Plan Parenthood (The abortion factory) in the Coronavirus bill. Never let a crisis go to waste is one of the Demoncrat 10 Satan Commandments.

    Wuhan Virus AKA: Coronavirus weaponized by China and their treasonous Godless demoncratic Commie party and cohorts the fake media, academia, Hollywood, Millennials…to crash the greatest US economy ever! And to take down the greatest president ever, President Trump!! Keep up the great work President Trump! 2020 and beyond! From the Patriots of a Commie Demoncrat free America!

    • The current situation is a panic generated by the fake news media. They hate us and want to destroy our nation and its economy. Over 10,000 people died as the result of the flu in the US last flu season. No outcry about that at all. Over 35,000 folks were killed in auto accidents. Nothing about that either. Now, we have a few over 400 die from the Wuhan virus and the whole country goes nuts–because the fake media is fanning the flames of disaster. We all need to do the prudent things. Wash your hands a lot, if you are sick stay at home, don’t mingle in crowds. BUT do NOT give up a single freedom–because that is exactly what the statists want.

      • I believe the deaths from flu each year are higher than 10,000, more like 22,000. In yesterday’s press conference, a doctor stated that of the people who had symptoms and were tested, nine out of ten tested negative. So what did the other nine people have? Colds and flu? So nine times as many people have the flu, but the flu is never mentioned so they can keep pushing this coronovirus bs which doesn’t cause as many deaths as the flu. This whole thing is media driven to tank the Trump economy and cause a recession which the commie demincrits can run on and get the govt. to spend money on things they want.

    • That’s how they get their campaign money. Finance one of their “bought and paid for” organizations claiming an emergency, then the org donates half the money right back to the DNC and state chapters. No sweat campaign fundraising when you use taxpayer funds. Why isn’t this illegal?

  5. The 2nd Amendment is Not Negotiable it is our God giving right besides I am not giving up my gun that I still have not purchasedl. Remember the same people who push these ideas love illegal aliens and want all American citizens who love this country dead.

  6. So where do we go now? What protections are there in the Constitution of The United States of America that will protect and defend us against these tyrannical abuses of our constitutional rights short of having to defend ourselves through the use of force?

    Should our own government take legal action, how about it AG Barr?

  7. Our government is hell bent on disarming its country. How would our Founding Fathers feel about that? I’ll bet they would have said, *”Come and take it!”* just before ALL HELL broke loose!

  8. ALL HELL is about to break loose. The Deep State Actors who tried to over-throw our POTUS have still not been arrested. Hillary made big monies using a private server and setting up a deal to sell 1/5th of our URANIUM RESERVES, and still walks free. WE spend 3 years watching Criminals under the masks of Democrat loyalists who are IMPARTIAL try to pin everything they could on TRUMP so as to SACK THE ECONOMY. SO, here it is and now WE are being punished because of a virus which was financed by THE CROWN, not CHINA! What is more, George Soros is involved in the virus’ release. HELL YES, it’s TIME!

  9. First most, when our Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan just told the entire State to “stay home or we will ticket you” (except for essential business), the first thing we the people want her to do is to SURRENDER ALL HER PAY IMMEDIATELY, along with ALL POLITICIANS. Her order is unconstitutional, and she has made it clear she has no respect nor regard for our Constitution. It’s one thing to encourage and support the best means of protections against this virus, but it is a completely different level to ORDER all others in the State to SUFFER, while she and the rest of the Politicians get paid to do nothing!

  10. Where in the constitution does it say that anyone has the authority for any reason to ignore any part of its content? Shall not be infringed cannot be interpreted by anyone differently than what it says although some have tried.

  11. None of the liberal news reporters will lose a paycheck because they have their jobs classified as “essential”. Ditto for politicians. Meanwhile, millions of Americans are out of work, either temporarily or permanently over this bs of protecting us from getting a flu-like illness which is no worse than the flu. Personally, I would rather get the flu than not have the money to pay my bills. This whole thing was started by the media who has their own agenda.

  12. Not only the second amendment, but others as well. “The right of the people to peaceably assemble” is a First Amendment right, I don’t see the phrase “unless the group be larger that 10 individuals, or 50 or 500, depending on the proclamation of the mayor, sheriff, governor or other government official.” There are others, as well, but it would seem that the US Constitution is no longer “the law of the land”, but only a historical document that can be cited to show how incredibly and impractically idealistic the founders of our country were, but which is no longer relevant because there are now viruses that override it.

  13. Violating My Constitutional Rights, Yeah You go ahead and Try that and see what Happens! When the 1st wave of Confiscators end up Dead the 2nd might not be so Willing to Violate the COnstitution!


  15. When they offer you food in exchange for Guns, you will finally wake up. As they close the grocery store, the bank, the gas station, turn off the radio and tv and internet, you will give them what ever they want as your kids cry “I’m Hungry” The passage of the various laws to make America safer,was really to turn off our nation. That1 million sq ft National Security building in Utah was to spy on us. I’m 93 and I’ve been watching this fraudulent government since 1936. Why do you have a Social Security Number? “The better to track everything we do”. Cops ask you: Name, Date of Birth, and LAST 4 numbers of your SS. Our new drivers license is for the National Data Base on all of us. IF you want America to survive you have only ONE chance this Nov. DonCordellforPresident dot com I will Restore not Change America. 3 of my ancestors came on the Mayflower in 1620, my ancestors were here and part of the Revolution in 1776. In 1871 our nation was broke, so our leaders sold this nation to the bankers (foreign of course) and in 1913 they formed the Federal Reserve Bank system, they also tried to pass the 16th Amendment to tax our wages. IT DID NOT PASS, but the IRS said: Citizens will believe us, so tax away. The Supreme Court told the IRS 16th Amendment did not give the Government any new tax rights. Filing a 1040 is Voluntary, not mandatory. Wake up Americans, We are being invaded, We are being paid in fraudulent Federal Reserve money, when the Constitution says: The ONLY LEGAL MONEY IS GOLD AND SILVER. Go ahead and surrender your guns, and rights. Why do you think ALL FOOD is bar coded? Look to having show your NEW Drivers License to buy food. For the Government to decide what food is good for your health, for your Government Health plan. The Federal Reserve bills in your pocket are Bank Money, not Government money the Federal Reserve in NOT Federal anything. Where are your silver coins? Gas is 3 silver dimes a gallon. Got Silver?

  16. I love it that a lot of Americans are finally waking up to the tyranny by our elected representatives and unelected Obama/Clinton/Soros DEEP STATE Agents.
    Comm’on Bill Barr! Do USA some big law enforcement favors immediately:
    Expel the criminals from House and from Senate and FBI, et.al, then Arrest Chuck Schumer for terrorist threats against Justices and put him in prison for 10-years. Same for crooked Pelosi, Omar, AOC, Waters, Muslims Squad, Romney, the Clintons and the Obamas, Soros, cooked FB I, CIA, IRS, et.al.!!! Prison 10-yrs, then deport to Haiti, and banish from USA forever! IMMEDIATELY. !!!

  17. The isis dems are the worst kind of terrorist. They are showing you exactly who they are. Believe them. Vote them out in November to save your country and your families
