In Response to Trump Wall Emergency Declaration, Pelosi Makes National Gun Grab Threat

WASHINGTON,DC-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Thursday made a threat to gun owners across America that if Donald Trump executes his authority to declare America’s border crisis a national emergency, she would consider the same for gun ownership in America.

Pelosi said gun violence, including those crimes committed by illegal aliens, is a real national emergency.

“If you want to talk about emergencies, that’s a national emergency… If you want to go down that path, then let’s look at what really is a national emergency. But I’m not advocating for any president doing an end run around Congress.” Pelosi said. “You want to talk about a national emergency? Gun violence is a national emergency.”

Pelosi continued her rant about President Donald Trump’s border security requests, calling the emergency at the border an illusion.

“It’s not an emergency, what’s happening at the border… I know Republicans have some unease about it… Because if he can declare an emergency on an illusion, just think of what a POTUS w/different values can present to the American people,” she said.
