I think during Katrina that the police took everyone's guns away. Then, didn't the NRA help pass legislation at the Federal level disallowing the local governments from taking our guns in a future disaster? Please give me the details. Thanks.

Here, they passed a state law that does not allow them to bar "carrying " either for protection except in certain situations.
