Police Seizing All Guns


Tags The Police State

Let's see here. The police were helping in the post-flood looting, and now the police are grabbing guns from homeowners who are trying to protect themselves. Says the NYT: "no civilians in New Orleans will be allowed to carry pistols, shotguns, or other firearms of any kind."

The police super says: "Only law enforcement are allowed to have weapons." New principle concerning what distinguishes the law from the criminals: criminals don't usually give press interviews.
