    Exclamation Mayor given "extraordinary powers" to ban guns, ammo, booze, etc.

    The City Council of Champaign, IL (home of the University of IL) voted 9 - 0 to grant the mayor the power to close bars, restaurants, grocers, gun stores, seize property, shot off gas/water/electricity, etc.

    I believe we already had a war against Britain for forcing similar laws on us a little over 200 years ago. That didn't turn out well for Britain....

    It's amazing how elected officials can just suspend the Dill Of Rights whenever they want.

    This virus thing is TOTALLY blown out of proportion. The freakin' yearly flu is more dangerous than the "Corona virus".

    I am one to listen to "conspiracy theory" ideas and not dismiss them out of hand, but I find it difficult to believe the one about a "Weaponized virus experiment in China gone wrong", but my wife who usually DOES poo-poo conspiracy ideas said "I wouldn't put it past China to do something like that".

    Strange.

    I've got lots of ammo in stock, and I fear when Pres. Trump gets re-elected, the democraps will blow their fuses and go totally psychotic (if it's possible for them to get worse).

    I'll be prepared for them.

    Wow, 9-0 to completely suspend the constitution....these people watch too many zombie movies

    So when this fantasy disaster is over, are there provisions to hold accountable any of their minions who might get a little too aggressive, you know like killing people or beating up confused old ladies

    No. That's in the fine print that nobody ever reads.....

    Yep, i read this morning that even though the virus may subside during warmer weather, IT WILL LIKELY RETURN NEXT FLU SEASON, so they're setting the stage for round 2. Interesting that it will coincide with the election, wonder what tricks they have up their sleeve.

    The weak minded voters elect treacherous leaders. This entire Patriot Act is headed for the SCOTUS.
