Pelosi Planning Emergency Gun Control Declaration To Take Your Second Amendment Rights (VIDEO)
The Democratic Party is engaging in acts that could only be described as an “I a rubber you are glue” for of politics. They are making absolutely no sense.
It’s been said across the county in so many surveys and polls that people want the wall because people are sick and tired of hearing about another illegal alien killing an American Citizen.
However, the Democrats never being ones to miss on a chance to make a mountain out of a molehill are planning to do something in response to President Trump’s call for a national emergency to build the wall.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned if President Donald Trump declares a national emergency to obtain further funding for border barrier construction, it would set a precedent that a future Democratic president could use to take similar action regarding gun control.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Thursday that the president would sign congressional legislation providing $1.375 billion for new border barrier construction, but would also take executive action to obtain additional funds, Fox News reported.
“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action — including a national emergency — to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” Sanders said in a statement. “The president is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country.”
While urging the legislation’s passage earlier in the day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell revealed on the Senate floor that the president is “prepared to sign the bill. He will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time.”
Pelosi responded to that prospect telling reporters, “I know that Republicans have some unease about it no matter they say. … Just think of what a president with different values can present to the American people.”
“You want to talk about a national emergency? Let’s talk about today, the one-year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America,” the speaker continued, referring to the Parkland high school shooting that left 17 dead.

“That’s a national emergency,” Pelosi argued. “A Democratic president can do that. Democratic presidents can declare emergencies, as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.”
