At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), gun rights researcher John Lott said in an interview that a Democratic president would likely “declare a national emergency on gun violence in order to confiscate firearms.”
Lott told Hill.TV’s “Rising” host Buck Sexton that he sees this national emergency “as quite possible” and mentions how “California, New York, Chicago and other places in the United States that have already used registration lists that they’ve had to identify people that owned guns to force them to have to turn them in, and get rid of them.”
“It wouldn’t be a stretch at all to see something like that happening nationally.”
Congress is preparing to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration at the U.S. southern border with Mexico, which would fund Trump’s border wall project.
Some Republicans have argued that Trump’s declaration could start a bad precedent of national emergency abuses on gun rights.
This is simply off-base considering that all issues concerning gun policy start and end with the Second Amendment, which is a right. So, any move to declare a national emergency on the issue, would be unconstitutional by default.
The defense of national sovereignty is an integral feature of a functioning nation, and nations who fail to defend sovereignty are destined to disappear into the ether.
The reason we have reached such a point is thanks to spineless Republican leadership in Congress from 2016 to 2018, which did nothing to pass sensible immigration reforms despite having comfortable majorities in both chambers of government.
The precedent for gun control and its radical gun confiscation variants has already been set at the state level in the past decade. With corporate gun control lobbying and de-platforming gaining more ground in recent times, radical gun control will be carried out in one shape or the other should anti-gun forces ever gain control of Congress.
Statements from Nancy Pelosi about how a “Democratic president can declare emergencies, as well” are a naked revelation of Democrats’ intentions.
31 national emergencies are already in effect, so there’s nothing groundbreaking about Trump’s most recent declaration.
In sum, both the precedent for gun control and national emergencies has been set well before Trump came into office.
If Democrats declare a national emergency to wage a war on guns, it has nothing to do with Trump and everything to with the monster government they’ve unleashed since the arrival of the Progressive Era.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
