You Want a National Emergency? You Can Create One

2/14/19 The Hill:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday issued a warning to Republicans poised to support President Trump's decision to declare a national emergency at the southern border: the next Democratic president, she said, could do the same on guns. "A Democratic president can declare emergencies, as well," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans."
Yup.  A national emergency declaration about guns could indeed create a national emergency. She is so isolated from flyover country and much of California that she has no idea of the national emergency it would create.


  1. Remember, there is a democratic member of the house who has suggested the use of nuclear weapons to deal with communities that resist a government prohibition of guns.

  2. I suspect that if she starts it, she won't see the end of it. Typical Lefty-Loonie.

  3. Wouldn't declaring a national emergency as an excuse to restrict gun ownership further than it already is be akin to declaring martial law?

  4. I think that is a pretty empty threat. She does think before she says stuff like that.

    Bill Clinton found out how successful running on gun control is and he was a better politician than she will ever be.
