    Nagin and 2A

    http://www.nraila.org/News/Read/Releases.aspx?ID=7468

    Monday, April 10, 2006


    Fairfax, VA—Law-abiding citizens of New Orleans who were forced to relinquish their legally owned firearms to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) will have to wait, indefinitely, to regain their property. The City of New Orleans revealed they have not returned any firearms, as Mayor Ray Nagin and the city have yet to set up a return process.


    “Mayor Ray Nagin continues to deny freedom by denying lawful citizens their Second Amendment rights,” stated National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “First, he confiscates law-abiding citizens’ firearms and lies about it. Then, he fails to comply with court orders. Now he refuses to return the legally owned firearms to their rightful owners by dragging his feet. It’s a disgrace.”


    After denying the illegal confiscation for months, on March 15, 2006, Mayor Nagin and the NOPD conceded in federal court that they do have seized guns stored in locked steel containers. The city then agreed in court to a process by which law-abiding citizens may file a claim to receive their confiscated firearms.


    However, a New Orleans official handling the gun confiscations stated that no guns have been returned because the NOPD requires background checks, and the city has not set up a process. The official acknowledged, “We've been told it was going to happen weeks ago…and still hasn't been done.”


    Chris W. Cox, NRA’s chief lobbyist, stated, “During a time of chaos and lawlessness, Ray Nagin took away the only means of protection law-abiding citizens had, and by delaying necessary and appropriate action to right this wrong, he blatantly continues to disrespect New Orleans citizens. The Mayor’s contempt of court, his contempt of the Second Amendment, and his disrespect of the law-abiding gun owners of New Orleans is shameful.”

    It's disgusting and shameful. The man is so twisted about, I think he has alienated all of the citizens of that city in the aftermath with his comments and actions. Too bad filing a lawsuit would only hurt the already abused citizens of that city.

    Somehow I doubt that those that turned weapons in will ever see them again. Makes you wonder what has really happened to them.

    I feel that the weapons are already in the hands of others. If I was to take a guess,I'd say the cops. The NOPD have already shown their colors.They will magically turn up "missing". Very sad!! -----

    They should lock him up until the weapons are returned - kinda like the old debtors prison idea. I think that would light a fire under him to stop dragging his feet

    After being stored in the locked steel containers for this amount of time, they will be mostly ruined. I think he is getting exactly what he wants, dis-armed citizens.

    +1 to that. Take 1 flooded area+one steel container+and a handful of mishandled guns=1 pile of rust. Makes me ill thinking about it.

    Ditto on that. He'll probably get to be a Key Note speaker in a couple of years!

    Update on this Nagin fiasco -

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    NRA-ILA Grassroots Alert Vol. 13, No. 15 04/14/06



    States with updates this issue: Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky,
    Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, and West Virginia.


    ONCE AGAIN, MAYOR NAGIN SHAMLESSLY
    DISREGARDS GUN OWNERS' RIGHTS

    Law-abiding citizens of New Orleans who were forced to relinquish their
    legally owned firearms to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) will
    have to wait, indefinitely, to regain their property. New Orleans
    officials revealed they have not returned any firearms, as Mayor Ray
    Nagin and the city have yet to set up a return process.

    "Mayor Ray Nagin continues to deny freedom by denying lawful citizens
    their Second Amendment rights," stated NRA Executive Vice President
    Wayne LaPierre. "First, he confiscates law-abiding citizens' firearms
    and lies about it. Then, he fails to comply with court orders. Now he
    refuses to return the legally owned firearms to their rightful owners by
    dragging his feet. It's a disgrace."

    After denying the illegal confiscation for months, on March 15, 2006,
    Mayor Nagin and the NOPD conceded in federal court that they do have
    seized guns stored in locked steel containers. The city then agreed in
    court to a process by which law-abiding citizens may file a claim to
    receive their confiscated firearms.

    However, a New Orleans official handling the gun confiscations stated
    that no guns have been returned because the NOPD requires background
    checks, and the city has not set up a process. The official
    acknowledged, "We've been told it was going to happen weeks ago.and
    still hasn't been done."

    NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox stated, "During a time of chaos
    and lawlessness, Ray Nagin took away the only means of protection
    law-abiding citizens had, and by delaying necessary and appropriate
    action to right this wrong, he blatantly continues to disrespect New
    Orleans citizens. The Mayor's contempt of court, his contempt of the
    Second Amendment, and his disrespect of the law-abiding gun owners of
    New Orleans is shameful."


    NRA ANNOUNCES NEW ORLEANS TOWN HALL MEETING!

    NRA will be holding a special Town Hall Meeting in New Orleans next week
    to spotlight and document the plight of the city's law abiding
    residents, who were forced to surrender their legally owned firearms in
    the chaotic aftermath of hurricane Katrina.

    Residents who were victims of this injustice are encouraged to attend
    the meeting and share their stories. This is an opportunity to tell NRA
    what the City of New Orleans did to trample your Second Amendment rights
    when you needed them most.

    NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, and NRA-ILA Executive
    Director Chris W. Cox will host the Town Hall Meeting. Be sure to come
    out and tell them your story.

    The Meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 18, at 7:00 p.m., at the
    New Orleans Marriott Hotel, Salons D & E, 555 Canal Street, New Orleans.

    I feel Ray Nagin's political ship is sinking after his bungling (and retreat to Texas during the storm) of the whole Katrina thing, and especially this...


    But, alas, like every famous loser, he'll "write a book, appear on talk shows, and retire comfortably...
