In this time of "national emergency", a review of certain "restrictions" on the government may be a good idea.
This is from the "Inside NRA - ILA Report" from the May 2019 issue.  Yes, I'm a bit behind on my reading but part of this article was almost prophetic.  To wit:

 

 

42 U.S.C. 5207 states,
(a) Prohibition on confiscation of firearms
No officer or employee of the United States (including any member of the uniformed services), or person operating pursuant to or under color of Federal law, or receiving Federal funds, or under control of any Federal official, or providing services to such an officer, employee, or other person, while acting in support of relief from a major disaster or emergency, may --
(1) temporarily or permanently seize, or authorize seizure of, any firearm the possession of which is not prohibited under Federal, State, or local law, other than forfeiture in compliance with Federal law or as evidence in a criminal investigation;
(2) require registration of any firearm for which registration is not required by Federal, State, or local law;
(3) prohibit possession of any firearm, or promulgate any rule, regulation, or order prohibiting possession of any firearm, in any place or by any person where such possession is not otherwise prohibited by Federal, State, or local law; or
(4) prohibit the carrying of firearms by any person otherwise authorized to carry firearms under Federal, State, or local law, solely because such person is operating under the direction, control, or supervision of a Federal agency in support of relief from the major disaster or emergency.

IIRC, US Senator Obama (D-IL) voted FOR this wording, after Katrina.\

 

It may well have been his only pro-gun vote in his life.

He must have misread it and got excited when a few phrases jumped out at him. 
like 

confiscation, permanently seize, registration. prohibit possession, prohibit carrying, etc.

:laugh:  :rofl:   Most congress-critters don't actually read the bills.  But I'm sure that Obama voted for it to provide political cover for all his other anti-gun votes.  Just like the typical anti "I support the 2nd Amendment, but... {reason why they really don't}"

If I remember this right, US Senator Obama did not have a reputation for being there to vote on all the bills.

First, he went on a months long "journey to Africa." Then, he ran for President. After winning, he golfed.
