Virgin Islands Allows National Guard To Seize Guns, Ammo Ahead Of Hurricane Irma

The Daily Caller – by Michael Bastasch

U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed an emergency order allowing the seizure of private guns, ammunition, explosives and property the National Guard may need to respond to Hurricane Irma.

Mapp signed the order Monday in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The order allows the Adjutant General of the Virgin Islands to seize private property they believe necessary to protect the islands, subject to approval by the territory’s Justice Department.  

Mapp issued an emergency declaration Tuesday and mobilized National Guard units to prepare for the massive storm.

“This is not an opportunity to go outside and try to have fun with a hurricane,” Mapp said. “It’s not time to get on a surfboard.”

Irma strengthened to a Category 5 storm Tuesday, with wind gusts hitting 175 miles an hour. Irma’s eye is expected to pass just north of the heart of the U.S. Virgin Islands on Wednesday and bring four to eight inches or rain and 60-mile-per-hour wind gusts.

The National Hurricane Center is calling the storm “extremely dangerous.” Weather forecasters say Irma is headed towards the Florida coastline, and should bring devastating conditions to the region in the next four or five days.

GOP Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló both declared states of emergencies in anticipation of Irma.

Scott said President Donald Trump “offered the full resources of the federal government as Floridians prepare for Hurricane Irma.”

Irma comes more than one week after Hurricane Harvey brought devastating floods to the greater Houston area.

  1. “seize private property they believe necessary to protect the islands” WTF, who are they trying to protect… sounds like themselves and the PTB.

  2. And will this executive order be enforced and complied with?????

    If so, then u all deserve exactly just that, to be disarmed, then beaten, raped and any other fkn thing ur masters who you serve desire to do to you….

    Please u degenerate NWO pukes, please try that here…please please please u fkn maggots do it here…!!

    No precedent u create with any other slave group anywhere, England, Australia et al will ever allow u to do it here…!!! No fake NK nuke attack, nothing mthrfkrs…no how..

    You will have to fight, you will have to sacrifice all your enforcement pawn divisions first…

    So fkn just do it… we are bored with your weekness… and your unwillingness to commit to the task…!!!

  3. Guns and ammo, the new storm fighting weapons. Shoot the rain and wind, this is sure to stop it.

    Anyone that would fall for this bull is goofy.

  4. U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp, by signing this order, is acting lawlessly. He needs to be arrested, thrown in jail, tried, convicted of treason and hanged.
