The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Nagin's just gonna take 'em away again...
As if .223/5.56 isn't expensive enough already....
Like the 4 million aks purchased by Americans before the awb, these guns have not been purchased to be handed over. Nagin should know that he has expended all leeway in the matter.
Speaking of such things, I don't suppose anyone is drawing up a list of executive orders President Bush might rescind in the dying days of his office?
Such as, for example, the import ban?
Might be worth a phone call or two...
It's a nice thought, Mastiff, but I any president who would give us Gonzales, Mukasey, and Maximum Mikey Sullivan--and try to give us Harriet Miers--is unlikely to suddenly uncover a love of ordered liberty in the waning days of his administration.
If I were in New Orleans with a hurricane coming. I'd walk in with 10 of my friends, all of us by AR-15's and laser sights.
Then when they point their M-16's at the heads of any of us, they would find themselves equally intimidated.
I'd be more concerned about what executive orders might get *issued* in those waning hours, than what might get recinded; This is the guy who ran on renewing the "assault weapon" ban until his advisors convinced him he was committing political suicide, you know. He's only our friend to the extent that's politically unavoidable.
I work in the Gulf now.
One of the crewmen on my boat is a former Coast Guardsman who was in a Port Security Unit, and was deployed to New Orleans post-Katrina.
He regaled us one night of how, after a hard day's work on the lookout for looters and threats to the humanitarian and rescue responders, him and his mates would go loot beer.
It confirms every low opinion I've ever had of the Coasties.
Y'know, this WAS N'Awlins. All they need have done was to ask, and they wold have drunk for free, legit, in any saloon in the Quarter.
