    New Orleans

    I see another storm is coming to New Orleans.

    When does the confiscation of firearms and trampling of the Second Amendment by the "men in blue that are a friend to you" begin?

    My guess is that the local government won't make that mistake again - and the local populace won't LET them make that mistake again.

    In 2006, moreover, President George W. Bush signed into law the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, which contained an NRA-backed amendment sponsored by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.). The amendment prohibits persons acting under color of federal law, receiving federal funds, or acting at the direction of a federal employee from seizing or authorizing the seizure of lawfully-possessed firearms or imposing or enforcing certain restrictions on firearms during a state of emergency.

    Having gone through such a horrific ordeal, in the years after Katrina New Orleans residents exhibited a greater appreciation for their right to bear arms. The number of Right-to-Carry permit holders in the city doubled from 2004 to 2006. In reporting the experience of Vivian Westerman, a sixty-four-year-old that stayed in her home during Katrina, the Associated Press noted that,
    So terrible was [Katrina] that [Westerman] wanted two things before the next hurricane season arrived: a backup power source and a gun.” Westerman told the AP that after purchasing a .38-revolver, “I’ve never been more confident.” In September 2008, when Hurricane Gustav threatened the city, the New York Post reported that those remaining in the city were “locked & loaded,” and detailed the stories of several armed residents.

    In other news, building a massive highly populated city in a swamp continues to be one of the dumbest ideas known to man.

    Impossible! Everyone keeps telling me the NRA doesn't do anything to protect gun rights.
    Well the sheriff couldn't catch me now, but his little girl? Sure wish she would.
