Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, gave herself the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and take peoples’ private property with the title, after declaring a citywide emergency to address the coronavirus, WAND reported.

Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen, who sold herself as a non-partisan, signed an executive order on Thursday declaring a state of emergency for the city over coronavirus. Is there even anyone in the city with coronavirus?

Among the powers she now has is to ban the sale of guns, ammunition, alcohol, and gasoline. Feinen could also cut off access to individuals’ gas, water, or electricity. The city also has the ability to “take possession of private property” or order the temporary closing of all bars or liquor stores, Washington Examiner reported.

Included in the executive order are ordinances that would give the city extraordinary powers to the Mayor, which will have to be ratified by the City Council:

  • Violating parts of the Open Meetings Act
  • Ban sale of firearms and ammunition
  • Ban sale of any alcohol
  • Closing of all bars, taverns, liquor stores, etc
  • Ban sale or giving away of gasoline or other liquid flammable or combustible products in any container other than a gasoline tank permanently fixed to a motor vehicle
  • Direct the shutoff of power, water, gas, etc
  • Take possession of private property and obtain full title to same
  • Prohibit or restrict ingress and egress to and from the City

The City’s Manager told WAND it gives them the power to be “flexible” if needed.

If there is such a calamitous emergency, people will NEED their guns. They will need to drink too. These people are rushing into the communism under the guise of keeping people safe.

The city released a statement claiming that the council and the mayor would only take steps “necessary to ensure the health, safety, and welfare” of the city.

“The City will keep the public’s best interest in mind as we continue to work alongside public health officials and countywide leaders,” the council said in a statement. “We understand this is a challenging time but working collaboratively as a community is the best approach to combating this virus.”

Why didn’t they demand universal income and set up gulags while they’re at it, to be super safe, I mean?

  1. Your comment on “…they’re RUSHING into COMMUNISM…” is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! BUT!

    Where are the PATRIOTS who stand up & mandate that this MAYOR & her cohorts BRING they’re so called “needed safety” before a FULL HOUSE of a council of CITIZENS!!!??? NOT JUST the MAYOR, (who must NOT be allowed to push through her agenda), Which btw, IS full fledged SOCIALIST at BEST…AND MARXIST at worse!!

    AND!!

    Do NOT be fooled by that lame “LIBERALISM” title / motto!!!

    HISTORY HAS PROVEN that “Liberals” are {camouflaged “FABIANS SOCIETY” MARXISTS}!!! Ck it out!!

    “We the PEOPLE…”; NEED to “…STUDY to show ourselves approved…so to be…”workmen who need NOT be ashamed”…!!!

    AND!!

    BE CAREFUL & DO NOT get “COMMUNIZED”…THINKING you’re getting “PROTECTION”, but rather you’re getting “CONTROLLED”!!! ……………..BEWARE, BE AWARE!!

  2. How hypocritical and condescending it is for this woman to begin this meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance. because 2nd Amendment, which she is trying to put herself in a position to overrule, was put into OUR Constitution to protect us from government, INCLUDING Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen and the Champaign, IL city council. They do not have the right to do any of what they propose. Just another communist politician taking Rahm Emmanuel’s advice of ‘never let a crisis go to waste.” And I have news for those who don’t understand, this Coronavirus scare is not a crisis but is rather a ploy to divert our attention from the Democrats follies. Sorry, but a total of 40 people to date, 65% of them in one Washington State nursing home, does not make a crisis.

  3. Lighten up Francis. Let’s don’t get all grabby with the freedoms in a don’t let a good crisis go to waste mode.
    These bureauweenies are so predictable and boring. We like this freedom thing and won’t be tossing it in the landfill.
    Only Illinois could screw up weed selling. Bwahaha! EPIC FAIL on that one there Land of Lincoln.

      • She’s Illinois’ idea of a Republican. She ran as nonpartisan for mayor and says she is a progressive Republican. One cannot be a progressive and a Republican. Sometimes the leftists take the Republican slot because the Democrat slot is taken. Perhaps that’s how she ended up in the GOP. Mayor Feinen is pure progressive.
