    I think it's up to me on what I do, and take the responsibility for my actions. I don't need 'momma Govt' telling me. Also, we under the law we do have the right to protect our property.

    The Govt will also let you know "when" you are allowed back in too.. Uh huh, no thanks.

    Now the local sheriff and local police are commenting on TV and newspaper that this new law will be,for the most part, not enforced. Their theory is they have more important things to do in a hurricane.I agree. You choose to stay,it is your choice,live with it. I wonder,since this was decided at the state level,how will the state make local PD enforce this. Seems like a conflict in the making.

    I agree with other posters that you should not be forced to evacuate from your home. Although, I also agree that, if you choose not to leave, you sign a little form that includes your next-of-kin contact info and your acknowledgement that you will need seek rescue services or aid from the government. Problem solved. Freedom intact, along with responsibility for your choices. The way (in my opinion) it ought to be.

    The government has become too big and overbearing. The people will rise against an oppressive government.

    Keep in mind, this is a law passed by the state government, not the federal government (which is normally the culprit when it comes to sticking their nose where it does not belong).

    I hope the law is found to be unconstitutioal. We live in an area often hit by hurricanes, and most locals never leave. We all do just fine with our own resources. It would get ugly if anyone tried to force all of us out.

    The last mass evacuation here was from Roanoke Island in the late 1580's, and that didn't work out too well for those who left.

    I say that if you live in an area that is prone to disaster whether it is flood, fire, mudslide, hurricane, or whatever, you are on your own. The government or anybody else for that matter shouldn't be trying to rescue you or bail you out economically for living in a place that is that risky.

    This new law is BS in my book. I am just glad I don't live in an area that will be affected by it. We have gotten some of the evacuees in the past, and if they want to come up this way again, fine. But for the gov. to say you must leave is a whole different ball game. The law should have been that if people didn't evacuate when told that they needed to, the state or other local authorities have no duty to try and save them. Once the threat is passed services will be restored in an orderly and reasonable manner. Those that stay are on their own.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Government in general (federal, state, and local) is too big and overbearing.
