In an afternoon press conference that was given from the Rose Garden, President Trump has declared a national emergency and laid out how his administration will fight to limit the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
“To unleash the full power of the federal government, I am officially declaring a national emergency,” remarked the President. “The actions I am taking will open up access to fifty billion dollars, a very big and important amount of money for states and territories and localities in our shared fight against this disease.”
“In furtherance of the order, I am urging every State to set up emergency operation centers effective immediately…I am asking every hospital in this national to active its emergency preparedness plan so that they can meet the needs of Americans everywhere. The emergency orders I am issuing today will also confirm broad new authority to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The Secretary of HHS will immediately wave provisions of applicable laws and regulations that will help doctors, hospitals, and healthcare provides flexibility to respond to the virus and care for patients. This includes the following critical authorities, the ability to wave laws to enable tele-health, it gives remote doctors visits and hospitals check-ins the power to wave certain federal license requirements so that doctors from other states can provide services in states with the greatest needs.”
Alongside of the declared national emergency, the CEOs of Walmart, Walgress, CVS, and Target announced that they will be partnering together and using their store parking lots for nationwide coronavirus testing.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
