U.S. Territory Orders Gun And Ammo Confiscation

in Latest News

The Second Amendment provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, but the Virgin Islands Governor somehow sees a Hurricane exception to the Supreme Law of all U.S. land.

As the Caribbean and United States prepare for the incredibly powerful Hurricane Irma, people everywhere from the Gulf Coast to the Carolinas are getting ready for possible impact. That includes the U.S. Virgin Islands, a territory where the governor has signed an executive order authorizing the National Guard to seize privately owned firearms, ammunition, explosives, and property, The Daily Caller is reporting.

Governor Kenneth Mapp signed the order on Monday ahead of the Hurricane’s landfall. The order allows the Adjutant General of the Virgin Islands to take personal property that it believes is necessary to protect the islands. That apparently includes residents’ personal firearms and ammunition, along with whatever other property is deemed “necessary.”

What is this a third world country, where the State can declare that one’s rights are abrogated by a force of nature by executive fiat? The order itself reads like something from a Communist dictator rather than an American governing official.

    And New Orleans was subsequently smacked down for this unConstitutional gun grab by the court system. I would imagine the USVI gubment will also be smacked down for their current illegal gun grab directive. If I were living there, I would be pushing to replace this man with someone who is more in tune with the US Constitution & not the gun grabbers.

      I AGREE BUT I HOPE THIS DON’T HAPPEN HERE IN AMERICA.

        It is an illogical mind that thinks, after a terrible storm & with looting & worse going on, that the confiscation of legally owned citizen’s guns is the proper thing to do. To protect who? Certainly not the law abiding citizens so it must be the unlawful that this fool is so interested in protecting.

    The New Orleans gun grab was not a great success for the powers that be, though as far as I know, they got away with it in the sense that no one lost their job as a result of this tyrannical act. Those who rule the world have not given up: they are preparing to try again in the Virgin Islands.

    The plan to seize guns cannot be interpreted as an honest attempt to secure public order because the plan makes no sense. Rounding up guns door-to-door in the wake of a natural disaster will not net the weapons of criminals, but only the weapons of home owners who need the weapons more than ever to defend their property against looters.

    Apparently our rulers plan to keep trying such confiscation until they score a solid success against the constitution. Then they will be emboldened for the big event: the disarming of America.

    This is wrong on many levels, but one that doesn’t reach out and grab you is how many people would stay in a storm area, and there homes to prevent this Governor from violating there property. you may have the right to enter a home to make sure that there are no elderly inside in order to help them, but that is not an invitation to rifle through someones personal belongings. How many folks that would leave will stay and die because of this Governor.

  • The Redman

    Remind ya of how evil white-folks do tangs. hahahahahahhaahahaha
