In response to the coronavirus pandemic, an executive order by the New Orleans Mayor, LaToya Cantrell, would allow the banning and transportation of firearms, USA Today reported. The outlet was fact-checking a Breitbart article making the claim and found it was true.
It is true that a line in the mayor’s executive order gives the city the ability to suspend the sale and transportation of guns if city officials decide it’s needed to maintain public safety. As of March 21, the city has not stopped the sale of firearms.
From page 4 of the executive order: “The Emergency Authority is hereby empowered, if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transporting of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.”
The left wants to control everything and they are showing their true colors.
If the American public goes out of control, we will need our guns to protect ourselves, but Democrats do not support the right to self-defense.
They allow calls to 9-1-1 or fighting off mass killers with pencils if you’ll remember the public service messages under Barack Obama.
During this time of emergency, we see what Democrats view as the solution for everything — total control.
