Illinois municipal leaders seek emergency powers for gas, gun sales bans and curfews amid pandemic

Municipal officials throughout the state are considering measures to grant local leaders emergency powers to ban the sale of things such as guns, gasoline and liquor as concerns over the spread of COVID-19 mount.

Last week, President Donald Trump wrote in a letter: “I have determined that the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is of sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant an emergency determination under … the ‘Stafford Act’.”

The move allows local and state governments to get assistance from the federal government. It also gives more powers to the federal government to manage declared emergencies.

“In order to meet the challenges caused by this emergency pandemic, I have encouraged all State and local governments to activate their Emergency Operations Centers and to review their emergency preparedness plans,” Trump said.

Political opportunism at it's utter worst.  In my lifetime,  I have never seen an event with so many alliterative motives.  Pre-cursor to revolution?  Not so far fetched IMO.
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

I would have said that was paranoia in action 30 days ago. Now I am not so certain.

Glad to see that Chicago refuses to be cowed by the Wuhan flu. We're not changing our lifestyle for any stupid virus!
