    This guy just keeps on being an idiot! When is he going to get the message?

    From WWLTV, New Orleans:

    So, how do you prove the gun is yours? Do you have to laminate the sales receipt, specifying the make, model and serial number of the gun, and carry it with you?

    :fire: :banghead: :cuss:

    In an interview with WWL Radio on June 2, 2006, Riley stated his officers would again seize guns from law abiding citizens if another storm was to hit New Orleans. "During a circumstance like that, we cannot allow people to walk the street carrying guns. As law enforcement officers we will confiscate the weapon if a person is walking down the street and they may be arrested," Riley declared on the air.

    It seems Mr. Riley is preparing to become the first looter when disaster strikes again. Thank goodness we now have legislation before the Governor to lock him up if he tries. If she vetos the legislation, we will simply pass it again.

    I think Mr. Riley is learning quickly from his legal advisors on this matter. He's crawdadding.

    Riley can crawdad all he wants. He needs a trip to the woodshed to learn about the rights of American citizens and how we tend to over-react when a public employee threatens those rights. :cuss:

    I think Riley knows full well that in the middle of an emergency no one is going to be carrying around their WalMart sales receipt from 1993 for their 870 shot gun. This means that legal, law abiding, American citizens will be arrested for a community crime watch.

    Which is exactly what Riley wants.

    Wasnt it Compass who started doing the confiscations of his own accord? Or do I misremember who gave that little speech?

    Compass is a hardcore criminal- during the storm he intentionally destroyed private property, stole Cadillacs and engaged in countless other illegal acts besides the gun grabbing. He should be swinging from a tree or behind bars, not retired.

    I have heard people say "crawfishing" all my life, but this is the first time I have ever heard someone say "crawdadding". Same meaning I guess just strange. :)

    Pro-Gun Advancements Made in Louisiana!
    http://www.nraila.org/CurrentLegislation/Read.aspx?ITNDrop=2264-L


    Friday, June 09, 2006



    On June 2, Governor Kathleen Blanco (D) signed HB 89 by Representative Eric LaFleur (D-38) and Don Cazayoux (D-18), into law.



    This “Castle Doctrine” bill creates presumptions in law for the use of force against intruders in your home, car or place of business and explicitly states in law that you have no "duty to retreat" from criminal attack if you are in a place where you have a legal right to be. This law goes into effect August 15.



    Also, HB 760 by Representative Steve Scalise (R-82), which prohibits the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens during a future state of emergency or natural disaster, is currently awaiting Governor Blanco’s signature.


    A special thank you to all NRA members for your calls and emails in support of HB 89 and HB 760!

    Actually, the NRA sued them to stop ILLEGAL confiscation of privately-owned arms. Good for the NRA.

    Looks like this new message might be his way of getting around that suit?

    I just keep thinking how NOPD is going to get around this.

    Will failure to hand firearm over to NOPD for "inspection" immediatly when ordered, constitute obstruction of police investigation, failure to obey a police officer, failure to have purchase receipt in your name, using a friends firearm or some other contrived law be all they need to confiscate a firearm, contrary to the law?

    I've lived alot of places in this great nation of ours and New Orleans is one of the worst places I have ever lived. It makes the politics of New York look clean. Every time I think things are bad here I just think of how much worse it could be because I have lived it.

    It's all about power. You give someone a little bit of it and they act like they own the world. Alot of people from New Orleans have migrated here permanently and alot of it has to do with the way things were handled there. I have become friends with someone who took his insurance money and has not looked back. Let them have it!

    A popular thing to do among college students was to go there to Mardi Gras. College students may love to drink but they aren't stupid, they didn't go this year in large numbers and they won't be back for a long time if ever.

    Go ahead New Orleans, tick people off around the country. You depend on tourist dollars to survive, lets see how well you do without them.

    Indeed, and you have those who should and probably do remember it and they still blithely contend that there was no need for New Orleanians to have deadly force at their disposal. "There is evidence that the police were doing their job"...

    Wrong, Riley!

    “They have a right to carry the guns, but they have to prove it is theirs,” said Riley

    It is up to the police to determine if the gun DOESN'T belong to whomever is carrying it. Even at that, they can't touch the gun or the person carrying it unless or until the person carrying it does something wrong!

    IT AIN'T THE OTHER WAY AROUND, RILEY! Good lord! How did this guy get to be a cop let alone chief of police?

    NOLA citizens really have to straighten this Chief of Police out before the next "emergency".

    Truth is, there are no receipts that will be "acceptable". It will be gun-grab II.

    How many of the 900+700=1600 firearms have been returned? Those numbers probably do not include those weapons destroyed on the spot.

    Riley MUST realize that he is undermining citizen trust with these statements.

    Plus, every store owner must realize that looters know future hurricane evacuations are the big green light.

    Yes, NOLA has learned their lessons indeed.

    Avoid police. At home or on the evacuation route. Folks had their weapons confiscated from their packed luggage after answering truthfully whether they had firearms or not.

    Watch out for the looters. Anticipate record number mobs grabing their "free samples" with little concern of arrest.

    Indeed - precedent has been established.

    :(

    In a disaster situation, when looting is rampant, how can you tell who is who?
    Answer the door only for people you personally know and trust, and post signs saying that anyone else will be treated as a looter.

    I just read this http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1492367/posts

    It says that deputies of St. Tammany parish took guns from people too. That is the parish I live in. I had not heard of this locally so it must not have been very wide spread but it is upsetting that that order may have been given here too.

    "People carrying guns on the streets of New Orleans during an emergency will be stopped but their gun won’t be taken unless they can’t show that they are lawfully in possession of it,"
    ------------------------
    Question:
    Lawfully in possession of a gun, or lawfully in possession of a LOADED gun?
    They're going to use any flimsy excuse to take every gun they see no matter what you show them once they see a gun. There's going to be a lot of official "miscommunication" of the policies during the next emergency scenario.
    :cuss: I've stated it before, and I know some people think I'm a nut case:what: when I say, that in my opinion, Katrina gave the govt a chance to plan for mass population control for future emergencies. Whether it's natural, biological, nuclear, bird flu, whatever, the govt has had to consider what measures it would be willing to take to , evacuate, quaratine, or lock down major population centers in this country. Part of these measures include the use of private security contractors:what: . These guys are not your run of the mill rent-a-cops. They are very well trained, armed, and payed mercenaries, and they don't give a damn about your rights.:cuss:
    ------------------
    Good advice to everyone:
    Remember the Boy Scout Motto....
