Pelosi says Trump’s national emergency sets a new precedent

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned Republicans on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare gun violence a national emergency. Her comments came shortly after the White House said President Trump may declare a national emergency to ’build the wall’. She said Trump was setting a dangerous precedent. Her views were supported by Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

That would start a civil war imo if a Democratic president did that. There is no amendment giving illegal aliens the right to invade, but there is one for guns which already has been seriously infringed.

National emergency to appropriate funds =/= National Emergency to appropriate guns

For once the old demented lady makes a good point. Unfortunately she picked a bad example to make her point.

The better example would be a Progressive President declares a National Emergency over Climate Change.

Except theres one major diffrence if you declare a national emergency on guns you'll start a civil war because most Amercans believe in the 2nd amendment.

Well Nancy a democrat president that declared guns illegal would get deposed violently with said guns. The right to keep and bear arms are given by our creator it is not granted by the government. Government can only attempt to violate the right not withdraw it.

400,000,000 million guns to confiscate in America, I wonder what our government would charge us to remove our right to defend ourselves?

Gun violence has overall been decreasing for decades. But your limo liberals want you in fear about it. And most of their supporters will argue their points for hours on end without even knowing what they're talking about just by taking a few minutes to look at the statistics.

Sometimes I daydream of a small black hole quantum tunneling to DC and sending every politician to another space time continuum. Blank slate, we start over without the swamp. If they ever start this crap again, BAM! another black hole.

The only precedent it sets is a president actually trying to fulfill his promises and get things done, instead of uttering lame platitudes and running off of the same issues for the last few decades because if they actually did something about them they would have nothing to run off of anymore.
