I saw some folks yesterday that were pissed that the store wouldn't sell them 20 gallon of milk.

Rather misleading title. He's not coming after "preppers" but people./entities hoarding med supplies...two different things.
Why does a government official have the right to decide how many of something my family needs? A government that has the power to come after someone for "hoarding" M95 masks has the power to come after someone for hoarding vitamins, medicine, silver coins, gold bars, firearms, etc....there is no limit. I support limited government. This is a power grab.

Imagine if the Obama Administration announced they were coming after people for having too many M95 masks. It's none of the government's business how many masks or bullets, or coins I have. This is a matter of property rights. This administration deserves no more free passes. We the people need to demand that our republic be restored.

So you would be good with Soros buying every gun and round of ammunition and then destroying it all?

You wouldn't complain about that?

I wouldn't sell my guns to Soros, and I doubt most of the others here would either. On the other hand, I might sell my neighbors a gun if I trusted them enough. That's my whole point. We the people should be in control selling the property we have, not the government. We yield powers like this to the government and the only people left with the guns will be the government and their cronies, like Soros.

Good job avoiding answering my question. I was referring to all ammo and guns for sale, you know in stores, factories.

Let's also throw in all gun and ammo manufacturers too, which Soros could afford to do.

If people are allowed to buy everything off the shelves then it's like socialism. The shelves are empty. Everything is cheap or free but there's nothing to buy.
The "free" market works great when there's stuff to sell.

Free markets don't create socialism and empty shelves, central planning does. The reason the markets are so bare in Cuba and Venezuela isn't because of "hoarders" it's because the government interferes in the buying and selling process.

You're an idiot. Trump and Barr SPECIFICALLY stated this EO was not focused on individuals at all. Did you even watch the press conference? I did. I watched the whole thing and frankly, we as a society don't need people like you stirring up fears and spreading this kind of lying bullshit to help support your TDS agenda. We all have enough on our minds these days. Did you ever work in journalism by any chance? I hear CNN is hiring!

I'm fed up with you nevertrumpster shitheads spewing your anti American bullshit here. Either get on board or GTFO!

This one's number than a pounded thumb
We have a few of them here. If, after all that's happened and is happening, they still continue relentlessly dissing on the president, posting half truths and still finding fault with everything being done to recover the Republic, that's a clear sign to me what they're true agenda is. It would be foolish to think there were no anti Americans among us. These are the days when they show themselves to the rest of us.

I won't get carried away with a fear that some agency is going to go door to door taking what is yours. There are people trying to profit from this or are distrupting the supply chain on purpose.

But yeah, if any other pres did this, there would be all kinds of condemnation.

No other president has been in this situation before so how could we know that? The rights and privacy of thousands of people were lost during the Boston Marathon when SWAT teams forced their way into hundreds of homes armed to the teeth. If that can happen on just a local level how can we say what would or wouldn't happen in this global situation with any other president?

No problem, Bigfoot. Lots of people are frustrated that DJT isn't RP.
With all due respect sir, please don't include me on that list. I'm not an RP fan. I'm getting precisely what I expected from DJT

Roy Potter isn't afraid to speak out about Trump's selling out of America.

anti Americans among us
So someone criticizes the president for breaking a fundamental American principle and that makes them anti-American? Really? Do principles mean anything to you? If you were born in North Korea, would you love Kim Jong Un just because he was the leader?

Your continuing and unceasing criticism and constant whining of how this president is handling unprecedented challenges over the past 3 years doesn't exactly send the warm and fuzzy patriotic message you say it does. Funny you choose Kim as an analogy for your argument. Kim Jong Un may actually turn out to be one of the good guys when all the smoke clears

Exactly. When all one imagines is boogymen, that's all one can see!

I support limited government. This is a power grab.
No it's not a power grab. It's a bonafide National Emergency!
