We are also talking a natural disaster. Not like the police were organized enough to see who has a carry permit. Hell, they couldn't find police officers, much less paperwork. If you weren't brandishing a weapon no one was searching for it. Lots of guns were literally floating around NO. Megan went into a panic because he had a bunch of armed looters running around.

I know this is hard for any of us to comprehend. After Katrina people knew their home and everything in it was trashed. Some of the displaced never went back home. They got on a bus at a shelter. The bus took them to another city and they never returned to NO. They found a new life and never looked back. So in turn, there are still thousands of guns that were never claimed.

Marcus Tullius Cicero was debating Caesar. Cicero was winning the debate, when he stopped and acknowleged that Caesar had won.

Asked by an associate why he caved, Cicero observed that a man who personally commands 65 legions is always right.

Is there a lesson here?

Of course, but a man who commands many is still a man and will die just the same when a desperate man puts a bullet through his face, regardless of the final consequences for the desperate man.

Very few things are worth the risk of death, Freedom is one of those things.

Had Cicero simply plunged his dagger into the chest or neck of Caesar, Caesar would have lost that debate.

In a disaster, I would be protecting my home, from my home. (If I had a home or any part of one left) I don't suspect that any FEMA or National Guard, sheriff or anyone else is going to be going house to house looking for guns....

They just don't want a bunch of desperate people, walking the streets armed to the teeth, making impossible demands. That would make the delivery of services a bit more difficult.........

Maybe a lil blessing for the half-crazy, bear-loathing, freedom-loving rednecks too?
