There isn’t a typo in that headline. You are reading it correctly. Deborah Frank Feinen is the mayor of Champaign, Illinois. She is also a Republican.

But what Feinen did on Friday will have a lot of conservatives scratching their heads. From Washington Examiner:

The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, gave herself the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol after declaring a citywide emergency to address the coronavirus.

Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen signed the executive order on Thursday declaring a state of emergency for the city. That executive order, which is in line with municipal code, comes with extraordinary powers for the mayor to enact over a short period of time as the city combats the spread of the coronavirus.

Among the powers Feinen gained after signing the executive order was the power to ban the sale of guns, ammunition, alcohol, and gasoline. Feinen could also cut off access to individuals’ gas, water, or electricity. The city also has the ability to “take possession of private property” or order the temporary closing of all bars or liquor stores.

According to the former 2020 Democrat frontrunner and soon-to-be three-time failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, his statement is accurate.

150 million people, all dead – from guns, since 2017.

The guy also said he’s coming after gun manufacturers if he’s elected. So, you’re safe, gun manufacturers.

Did Joe mean to say 1.5 million? Still a lot, obviously, but not even sorta kinda close to 150 million.
