NOLA: Defining the Need for the 2nd Amendment

Today, the National Rifle Association (NRA) filed a motion in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana seeking a temporary restraining order to block authorities from confiscating law-abiding citizens’ firearms in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
NRA statement
After reading it, you know, I have to agree. This is, in my mind, the one time when it is absolutely necessary for law-abiding people to be allowed to have guns. I've heard horror stories about gangs kidnapping, raping, and then killing women, and because people are unarmed they can't do anything about it. And the New Orleans police want to take all the guns away from the law-abiding people, not realizing that the lawbreakers are going to be the only ones to have guns after this order is carried out.
"At a time when 911 is non-operational and law enforcement cannot respond immediately to calls for help, people have only the Second Amendment to protect themselves, their loved ones and their property,” said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.
