    They're coming for your guns

    I've been wondering this for a while. Look back a NOLA after Katrina. The police/Military rounded up guns from law abiding citizens, obviously a huge infringement on the Second Amendment. What would you of done in this situation? MOΛΩN ΛABÉ, or give them away?

    neither since I don't believe in guns. Those things are dangerous and I would be crazy to have one under the same roof as my two small chilldren.

    when vs military/police during a natural disaster:

    MOΛΩN ΛABÉ = death sentance
    give them away = possible death sentance
    "I don't believe in guns" = possible live to fight (legally) another day

    Agreed, I'm just curious.

    If they can find them, they can have them....

    They would never be able to find them... or me or my family. If we ever had a situation like that in Michigan, me, my family, and my weapons would not be waiting around for rescue and/or gun confiscation.

    Now my state did just pass legislation to outlaw that practice of confiscating guns during an emergency, but I'm not going to rely on that, anymore than I rely on the BG's to follow the laws about not using guns for acts of violence.
    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.

    OK guys - sorry to say yeah - this is not a CC thread material.

    We all have views naturally but this kinda subject very readily gets outa hand and into the realms of borderline lagalities etc. So, sorry - can't let it run.
