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.

  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”??!!!

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

    • Yes, I totally agree. The next thing the liberals WILL do when they regain power is CONFISCATE ALL FIREARMS; that is their dream they dream every night, because an UNARMED POPULACE is much easier to CONQUER than a well-armed militia! It’s up to US to ensure that NEVER happens, no matter what the circumstances are!

  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.

  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!
