New Orleans Mayor Grabs Authority to Ban Gun Sales With Coronavirus Emergency Declaration

The first major city to prepare the possibility.

Published

New Orleans is the latest American city to declare a state of emergency that gives the mayor to suspend gun sales at her discretion.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s declaration of a state of emergency gives her office the power “if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.” The order was drafted last week.

Cantrell also now has the authority to suspend the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages.

The order is ironic, considering New Orleans’ troubled history with emergency gun confiscation. City police enacted gun confiscation operations targeting law-abiding everyday citizens in the aftermath of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina, fueling into panic and blunting the effectiveness of hurricane response.

New Orleans appears to be the second American city to prepare a gun sales ban as part of a state of emergency, following Champaign, Illinois.

New Orleans police have been seen dispersing crowds from the city’s bar district on Magazine Street, ordering citizens to return to their homes and hotels in the midst of the epidemic.

It’s unfortunate that city officials believe lawful exercise of the Second Amendment represents an imminent threat, especially in an era where the general population is concerned for their own safety and security.

Florida Man Shoots Three Armed Home Invaders, Two Killed

Thank God for the Second Amendment.

A Florida man defended his property from three armed home invaders who broke into his house in Wesley Chapel early Friday morning.

The unnamed homeowner was reportedly playing video games when he heard a window being broken at around one in the morning.

Two home invaders, who have been identified as Luis Casado, 21, and Khyle Durham, 21 were both shot and killed as they approached the thus-unnamed homeowner in a hallway. A third criminal suspect, Jeremiah Trammel, 19, fled the home after being shot by the resident. He was later arrested by a civilian armed with a weapon of his own, and has since been charged with home invasion robbery. He’s also being charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of his two accomplices, for the commission of a crime which resulted in their deaths.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco is describing the incident as a clear-cut example of self-defense. “The victim in this case was exercising his Second Amendment right to protect himself in his home,” he said of the event. He’s reporting that all three of the men have previous criminal records, which include “extremely violent” crimes.

Sheriff Nocco has said that the victim of the home invasion believes he may have been targeted because of his extensive gun collection, of which he had occasionally posted pictures of on social media. The Vector rifle he used in the incident is somewhat of a rare firearm for civilian ownership, having been originally designed for use as a submachine gun by law enforcement and militaries.

As another law-abiding citizen utilizes his weapon to lawfully defend his home from criminals intent on doing him harm, liberals and Democrats appeared more determined to seize the guns of American patriots than ever before.
