    A new NRA announcement re NOLA guns case.

    For those who may not have seen this yet - some more progress it seems.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Statement from Chris Cox on NRA's Lawsuit Against the City of New
    Orleans

    Today, in a landmark victory for NRA and law-abiding gun owners, Judge
    Carl J. Barbier of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of
    Louisiana denied the City of New Orleans' motion to dismiss NRA's
    lawsuit against the city and held that the Second Amendment applies to
    law-abiding residents in the State of Louisiana and the City of New
    Orleans. Straining the bounds of credibility and reflecting the true
    sentiment of anti-gunners, the City of New Orleans contemptuously argued
    that the Second Amendment does not apply to residents in the State of
    Louisiana and the City of New Orleans.

    NRA first filed suit after reports surfaced indicating that, following
    Hurricane Katrina, firearms were confiscated from law-abiding New
    Orleans residents. Former New Orleans Police Chief Eddie Compass issued
    orders to confiscate firearms from all citizens, under a flawed state
    emergency powers law. With that one order, the one means of
    self-protection innocent victims had during a time of widespread civil
    disorder was stripped away.

    NRA filed suit in federal court and won a preliminary injunction ending
    all the illegal gun confiscations. After the City of New Orleans failed
    to comply with the court's ruling and dishonestly claimed that the gun
    confiscations never occurred, NRA filed a motion for contempt that
    included an order directing all seized firearms be returned to their
    rightful owners.

    After denying the illegal confiscations for months, on March 15, 2006,
    Mayor Nagin and the New Orleans Police Department finally conceded in
    federal court that the seized firearms were stored in two trailers. The
    city then agreed in court to a process by which law-abiding citizens
    would be able to file a claim to receive their confiscated firearms.
    However, few firearms were returned because the NOPD never notified gun
    owners how to claim their guns, and turned many away citing impossible
    standards for proof of ownership.

    Today's ruling sets the stage for a continued legal fight in which NRA
    will be forced to expend additional resources to fight back the
    anti-gunner's blatant and shameful attempts to ignore the Second
    Amendment. The case will now move to discovery and pre-trial
    preparation.

    NRA will keep you informed of future developments regarding this case.

    They want the Constitution to apply when they want federal funds but not the 2nd A!!!! Maybe we all can just pick and choose which parts we like and overlook the rest. How stupid can people be!!!

    Question for all Constitutional Scholars...

    "Today, in a landmark victory for NRA and law-abiding gun owners, Judge Carl J. Barbier of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana denied the City of New Orleans' motion to dismiss NRA's lawsuit against the city and held that the Second Amendment applies to law-abiding residents in the State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans. Straining the bounds of credibility and reflecting the true sentiment of anti-gunners, the City of New Orleans contemptuously argued that the Second Amendment does not apply to residents in the State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans."

    Is this going to be a step in the direction of "incorporation" of the Second Amendment?

    What do these people and groups think about the rest of the amendments, they only apply if it is an aggreable amendment.

    Do they wear CROWNS too?

    Man, incorporation has been settled Constitutional doctrine for decades. Never applied to the 2d that I know of, but it has been to most (maybe all) the other Amendments. I know it's sure never been found NOT to apply to the 2d, at least not in the 20th or 21st centuries....

    Hey, Len, you can tell your chief and the MA Legislature that Judge Carl J. Barbier of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana disagrees with them. This is a precedent setting case. It is likely to go higher and if other courts agree with Judge Barbier we will be in much better shape.

    Sounds like the start of some potential good news. That's good. Hope those people at some point get their firearms back. Even though they're probably rusted up after sitting in a couple trailers for monthes. They should have to compensate them for it imo.

    Somehow, I doubt he cares what any judge or court says!

    I almost fell off the chair when he said that and I had to calm my Wife down not to argue with him. It was a lot of years ago when it happened but I'm sure he still believes he's right.

    One of our more outspoken radio announcers in Houston commented that the reason Nagin was re-elected was the he received 55% of the votes from the dead residents of NO, while his opponent only received 45%.
