Serious executive overreach

| No Comments

From Decatur, Illinois station WAND:

Executive order in Champaign could include banning sale of firearms, ammunition and alcohol
Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen has issued an executive order declaring an emergency in the city.

City officials said the emergency is related to the COVID-19, which is anticipated to cause an impact on the health of community members. Champaign Municipal Code allows the mayor to declare an emergency for a limited time.

Included in the executive order are ordinances that would give the city extraordinary powers to the Mayor.

    • 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 executive order allows the city to be flexible to properly respond to the emergency needs of our community. None of the options will necessarily will be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed," Jeff Hamilton the City of Champaign's Communications Manger told WAND-TV.

And of course:

There are no confirmed COVID-19 cases in central Illinois as of Thursday evening.

Just your usual Democrat/Socalist power grab. Move along folks, nothing to see here.
