I don’t know how much want to believe this guy, but Rep. Nadler, a Democrat, says that he thinks there might be enough Republicans to vote down Trump’s declaration of national emergency.
He says some are “terrified” about it:
Nadler makes an argument some Republicans have made, which is that taking this action allows Democrats to do the same when they get into power. That is exactly what happened with Harry Reid and the nuclear option when Republicans took over. Nadler points out that Dems could declare a national emergency on guns and just ban all guns or force everyone to register their guns without any congressional approval. He makes a good point. For a Democrat.
