States and cities around the country are grappling with the coronavirus outbreak.

Some Americans are outraged over what they see on the nation’s streets.

And this top Democrat just took one step toward declaring martial law.

Los Angeles residents are living under a lockdown order put in place by California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Governor Newsom ordered all “nonessential businesses” closed and shut down the state’s economy.

Some city residents – especially those that worked in retail – did not appreciate big brother government choking off their livelihood and continued to show up for work.

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti did not appreciate this defiance.

Garcetti announced a “business ambassadors program” which was designed to bully business owners into compliance.

“Your behavior can save a life and take a life,” Garcetti snarled. “And that life could be yours.”

“This behavior is irresponsible and selfish,” he added.

The “ambassador program” would issue a warning to business owners that defied the lockdown on a first offense.

But Garcetti declared that any subsequent violations would result in the city turning off their power and water.

Garcetti’s threats had business owners living in fear from their own government.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva ordered all gun shops closed and released 1,700 criminals from prison.

Villanueva tried to defend the Soviet-style order to disarm the population at the same time dangerous criminals were turned loose into the streets.

“When we’re communicating the shelter in place or the safer at home, there’s a lot of anguish, however, the people who have to enforce it are public safety, and we were totally out of the process, we were not involved,” Villanueva began.

Villanueva tried to claim he supported gun rights while defending a decision that declared the Second Amendment null and void in Los Angeles County.

“I’m a supporter of the 2nd amendment, I’m a gun owner myself, but now you have the mixture of people that are not formerly gun owners and you have a lot more people at home and anytime you introduce a firearm in a home, from what I understand from CDC studies, it increases fourfold the chance that someone is gonna get shot,” Villanueva continued.

Lockdowns.

Closing gun shops and banning the Second Amendment.

Unleashing criminals out into the streets.

Threatening to turn business owners’ power and water off.

Los Angeles residents are watching their government put in place policies that more resemble martial law in war-torn countries as opposed to the United States of America.

Garcetti claims he does not want these lockdown orders in place one day longer than they have to be.

But this crisis allowed big government goons like Garcetti to put in place power grabs well beyond their wildest imaginations.

It is every gun grabber’s dream to ban and confiscate every firearm in America.

Because of the panic over the coronavirus outbreak, anti-gun Democrats across the country did the next best thing – they banned residents’ access to firearms.

To add to the climate of fear, Mayor Garcetti is now threatening to deprive businesses of essential services to bully them into compliance with the lockdown order.
