In a time of crisis the ability to defend yourself with deadly force is necessary is paramount!

New Orleans Now Admits It Seized Firearms From Citizens

( – A Second Amendment group calls it a “stunning reversal.” After denying it for months, the City of New Orleans on Wednesday admitted that it does have a stockpile of firearms seized from private citizens in the days following Hurricane Katrina.

The city even took lawyers to the place where some 1,000 firearms are being stored.

The city’s disclosure came as attorneys for both sides prepared for a court hearing on a motion to hold the city in contempt. (On March 1, The Second Amendment Foundation and the National Rifle Association filed a motion to have New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and Police Superintendent Warren Riley held in contempt of court for refusing to comply with an injunction to stop illegal gun confiscations and return all seized firearms to their rightful owners.)

“We’re almost in disbelief,” said Second Amendment Foundation Founder Alan Gottlieb on Wednesday. “For months, the city has maintained it did not have any guns in its possession that had been taken from people following the hurricane. Now our attorneys have seen the proof that New Orleans was less than honest with the court.”

This was nothing less than idiotic. Legal gun owners are the ones who have followed through on state requirements to own a gun. Taking theirs from them left thugs with their illegally obtained guns. Does my gun license mean the government might decide to come take mine away? While the unlicensed thugs keep theirs? This makes me feel like a “gun permit” simply means you’ve given the government a means to know where to go when they want to take it. As the law abiding citizen, I should not feel like that. New Orleans was wrong and individuals responsible for ordering the confiscation of legal firearms should be prosecuted.

Imagine what would happen if PRESIDENT BUSH had ordered that licensed owners have their guns taken away?!!!

As the Gateway Pundit points out, Liberals want to be your mother.
