If this national emergency thingy squirts thru the courts and the wall actually gets built, we should put Trumps face on a mountain.
Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

The Commander in Chief declared an emergency and gets 6.5 billion plus 1.4 billion.
"You want to talk about a national emergency? Let's talk about today, the one year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America," Pelosi said Thursday. "That's a national emergency. Why don't you declare that emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would. But a Democratic president can do that."
"Democratic president can declare emergencies as well," the Speaker warned. "So, the precedent that the President is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans."

He loses? Activist judges who care more about illegals, he did all he could.
It's a win-win.
All Trump did in his declaration was move discretionary funds around. He did not attempt to negate the Constitution or even existing law as Obama did. A future president attempting to ban fossil fuels would meet with a revolt from both parties as soon as all the lights went out, and an attempt to infringe on gun rights would meet with considerable judicial resistance, especially from the Supreme Court.
What President Trump did today is not applicable to any of the nightmare scenarios suggested here so far. What a future Democratic president might do is declare the national emergency over with, and use his discretionary funds to dismantle the wall - doubtful after the people see how well the wall works.
Trump did break any new ground, he did nothing new here, nothing that hasn't been done before lots and lots of times by past presidents of both parties. Relax. Our republic is intact, and soon to be safer.
FYI - the bill negotiated by Congress and signed by the president contained over $5 billion to help fund walls in Ukraine, Israel and Jordan. How's THAT for hypocrisy! Over 40 nations are right now building walls along their frontiers, over 800 miles of walls have already been constructed in Eastern Europe to stop illegal immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa.
