    Using COVID-19 To Undermine Rights?

    This sounds draconian...

    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) - Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen has issued an executive order declaring an emergency in the city.

    City officials said the emergency is related to the COVID-19, which is anticipated to cause an impact on the health of community members. Champaign Municipal Code allows the mayor to declare an emergency for a limited time.

    Included in the executive order are ordinances that would give the city extraordinary powers to the Mayor.

    Violating parts of the Open Meetings Act
    Ban sale of firearms and ammunition
    Ban sale of any alcohol
    Closing of all bars, taverns, liquor stores, etc
    Ban sale or giving away of gasoline or other liquid flammable or combustible products in any container other than a gasoline tank permanently fixed to a motor vehicle
    Direct the shutoff of power, water, gas, etc
    Take possession of private property and obtain full title to same
    Prohibit or restrict ingress and egress to and from the City...

    It sounds like you welcome such ideas.

    Does it have a sunset clause? There were some emergency preventions by the government, such as giving the police the authority to disband groups of people numbering more than 100 (Israel made a similar law for groups more than 10), but both cases have sunset clauses so they'll expire in a few months.

    28 days -- derived from the movie 28 Days Later. Actually, this duration is listed in the link below.

    The article has a link to the proposed mayoral powers.

    It seems that the file actually has .pdf twice in its name/location

    What about banning sale of firearms and ammunition, shutting off of power, water, gas, or seizing private property and taking the full title to said property? Why is that even in there? And if those things are not a violation of rights I don't know what is.

    If they didn't put those in, what would the conspiracy theorists have to moan about while hanging around the bars that have been closed?
