Well I know what the answer is going to be the next time they're asked if they have any firearms.
This really 'urinated' (I dont's want the Mods to mod me....) me off when it happened!
That is one reason why that state just voted in a very strong 2A state level law this year. Apparently, most of the residents of that state were very 'urinated' off that it happend.
For example.... here is a video... "They were a 'little bit threatened, because our weapons were bigger than thier weapons.... (says it all)"
OK - I'll post one more time on this. And I am glad the OP posted this.
This was a 'test case' where Federal, Coast Guard, State and Local LEO violated everyone's 2A rights! Granted, most of the N.O. LEO were crooked and looting too, if they even stayed....
My opinion is that N.O. is a progressive left city (dispute me on that...) and it was easy for the LEO to gun grab there. Might be different later...
Now take 'Sandy' in NJ and NY and NYC... all places where the 2A rights are already restricted to the point of non existence. Don't hear the MSM talking about the crime and crime and crime and robberies and assualts happing there now, do you? It is happening.
Katriana was a test case for the brady bunch, and a bunch of appointed and/or endorsed 'officials' who did or do not understand the rights of citizens!
This will happen to you. Be prepared to 'give away' the only (wink) shotgun your family has... and let them move on.
They, after 'they' take your protection, will not be there to protect you when the mobs come. I used to be 'they'. I know what I speak of.
For all of you sworn LEO or higher Federal Officers, search your personal soal on this one! Afterall, most of you have family somewhere that you would expect the LEO to defend, when you are not there.... are they just as interested as you are to protect your family when you are not there?
Seems like we need to start looking into getting a hold of "give away" weapon for when they come..... Altho if they check BATF records before they come they will know exactly what you have unless purchased prior to BATF form requirements......
This is exactly why some States like Texas passed laws that make it Illegal to disarm law abiding citizens during natural disasters/national emergencies.
All you Feds and LEO... tell me I am incorrect! Most LEO cannot tell you what the 4th Admendment Right is... unless they read it off of a card... (Dudes! I'm not making fun of you............. your unions are).
I'm retired, from my official duties, and I am 'one of you' and now from the rest of 'you' and tired of being 'encroched on' for my 2A rights! I have respect for your LEO/Federal mission, but, when you go tactical, remeber that you are only acting on 'politically correct intel' and it may very well overtly violate the rights of the people you interact with, in the carrying out of your duties = not always right!
Edit add: to take the edge off of this ... Please be safe out there!
I bought twice the amount of guns and ammo I thought I would ever need in a SHTF scenario. Unfortunately half were stollen on my way home from a recent range trip. If the government confiscates my weapons under threat of arms my family will not be defenseless. I do not advocate breaking any laws, only preparing for contingencies durring SHTF scenarios.
A cache of food,water and other supplies that will not easily be found are essential to survival. I have over a ton of food storage. I can't hide it all but I won't have it all out in my living room waiting for troops to "redistribute" it either. I will abide by our constitution and if that makes me a criminal or terrorist my only hope for my children's future would be enough of a "resistance" from the general populace to take back what is rightfully our's, freedom.
It's been said before but freedom isn't free and Americans may one day again have to spill blood on our soil to honor those that have fought for the freedoms we use to enjoy and are slowly eroding.
The scariest part of it all? How oblivious my generation is to it all, and really how little they could care.
