    Neither of you read the article did you?

    Also they are going to be giving the firearms back and I can understand, as a Soldier you know, to not wanting leave a firearm unsecured. Now if they refuse to give them back, well now you've got an issue on your hands.

    If it's safe enough for the RCMP to go in and collect the firearms then why can't they allow the residents to go in and collect what THEY feel is valuable? I mean, if you're going to be all nice and stuff and take care of my $800 AR for me then why not let me go in and and take care of my $5,000 stereo/home theater or my wife's $10,000 worth of jewelry?

You would think all they would have to do is show residency in the home they were confiscated from.
    They were seizing firearms that were improperly stored.

    Looter can't steal and then murder someone with a nice pair of earrings.

    But the area was under the protection of law enforcement eh? If the legal residents were unable to get to their homes, how could looters? Obviously, the protection was working as all those improperly stored weapons were still there.
    Looters can certainly stab or beat you to death for those ear rings. That has been proven a few times.

    Maybe the area was determined not to be safe enough for civilians but safe enough for the RCMP? You know they are a little better trained, equiped, and organized than your average civilian, are you going to tell me that if its safe enough for a firearm to enter a burning building than why not you?

    So like I said, neither of you actually read the article because the RCMP did stop after they were confronted by the residents so no they didn't just stand by and let it happen. That right there alone takes anyway any credability because you can't even be bothered to learn even the smallest details about the incident before making an opinion.

    I can't believe that two people who've served in the military are completely blown away that someone would secure an unsecured weapon. Hell even if this was the United States, where we have a 2nd amendment and less strict gun laws than Canada, do you think that a policeman would if he saw a rifle or pistol laying on the ground would not stop to secure it? Would you like to charge him with theft or unlawful seizure of your property if that turned out to be your weapon that you left unsecured for anyone to take? No, obviously not, at least not if you had have a brain to think with.

    As if the poor people suffering through the flood don't have enough to worry about already. They're understandably upset about the situation - effectively being disarmed, as well, their homes being breached and their possessions being rifled through by law enforcement. I think this would justifiably cause anyone to feel small in an insignificant way, given that if they resist their police's maneuvers, they face arrest or potentially worse circumstances. It is sad to see a civilized society resort to these types of gross abuses upon its people.
    Same thing happened during Katrina in NOLA, that practice is now against the law in La. in retrospect. Any officer that engages in an unjustified disarmament faces criminal charges.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
