    It's a little early for him to be running from hurricanes. However, this statement from NRA is a little alarming.

    The National Rifle Association has received a number of reports of ongoing firearm confiscations in Greensburg, Kansas.

    We are currently gathering as much information as possible to verify these claims. If the reports are true, your National Rifle Association will act swiftly to correct this injustice and stop any unconstitutional gun confiscations.

    If you have any information regarding gun confiscations in Kansas, or know any law-abiding citizen who has had their firearms confiscated, please contact NRA immediately at 1-800-392-8683. Thank you.

    What? In Kansas? Now, it's important to keep in mind that these aren't confirmed reports. But, if there's any truth to them, I have no doubt there will be political hell to pay. It's important to not over react until we have a confirmed case. (Cross posted from The ***** Girls.)

    UPDATE: Listen to Cam's show online tomorrow. Someone from the area seemed to call (sorry, a little distracted while it was on since I'm talking to Sebastian) and say that it's not like Katrina-style confiscations. Apparently, as they dig through rubble and come across guns, they are tagging them and marking the location where they are found and taking them for storage. For the safety of everyone involved, I don't think it's unreasonable. Of course, that's only based on how it's being conducted and how easily they return them.

    If this is the case, I don't think it's a problem, provided the guns are returned as their owners (the owners of that property) come forward.

    What can you do if a gun is found lying around like that. I'm glad to see the update. I just hope they go back to the owners as soon as possible.

    IF they are lying around and in rubble then they do need to be gathered up. They also need to be returned to the owners.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
