NOLA threatened citizens with shooting during Katrina for refusing their illegal orders to surrender their weapons involuntarily(but we fixed that with a law making that an offense in which an official can be arrested).

    If it effected the whole area, I'd keep them to protect me and mine.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I'm from a rural area and the locals are pretty good, but we're talking about guns. Keep 'em close.

    If I was personal friends with a cop that I trusted, I'd let him keep them for me temporarily, but never in an official capacity.

    My best friend is a juvenile parole officer, I have him and probably about ten people who aren't family that I absolutely trust. My family for the most part know weapons and safety well, so they are options too, but no one except for the person who would babysit those firearms for me would need to know.

    I don't have much reason to. How do I know that I will get my weapons after the disaster is over? What kind of insurance do I have to get my weapon(s) back?

    I would not need the govt to help me protect my weapons in any circumstance.

    Nope. I'll take them with me. My firearms are a viable means of defense and hunting in the event that a hurricane destroys the town. Last time we had a serious storm, the police were nowhere to be found when they should have been directing traffic toward the evacuation routes. They can't even be trusted to do their jobs, so why would I trust them with my property?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
