Obviously a hurricane topic.

You would think the local law enforcement would welcome some organized
group of armed public going in to maintain order where the worst of the
worst is still going on.

And I would think there would be a lot of people willing to do it.

But I'm only hearing of police getting shot at, and little they can do about it.

I think it would be hard, since most of NO is probably inaccessible right now.

Plus, LEOs do not like (from my experience) armed citizens threating their domain.

Strikes me the militias could be deputized by the local sherriffs to do stuff like cover the NO Childrens Hospital currently under seige by looters.

PC will be the death of this country.

It's already happening in some areas. People are taking it on themselves to patrol while armed.

Maybe, but what are they going to do about it?
They can't hardly defend themselves from the bad guys.

I would imagine the general population would be greatful if someone was defending them,
regardless of who it was. It would make gun ownership look a whole lot more appealing.

Gov. of Florida can call up citizens militia at any time.

The key word is ORGANIZED.

Protection of private property is simply not a valid concern at this point.



There is more than just NOLA you know. Apparently the 'states' can't get the protection of life and limb thing done right away. That's a simple fact. Do for yourself and others or do without.

At the moment, it's the "milita" that's trapped on rooftops and doing the looting.

It rarely ever is.

If the militias want to do something, they should load up some supplies and go down and start helping people clean up.

Damn, you are right.

But lets assume there was a pre-existing militia full of what
my mom might call "gun nuts", who are somewhat diciplined and know how to
be responsible. I seem to remember a militia like this being in the spotlight
a few years ago in Michigan or something. They were considered a threat to
the government. I'm just saying that they could dispell the idea of them
being a threat if they took advantage of an opportunity.

Or maybe they really were a threat. I don't remember.

Exactly. Go help out, and shoot a bad guy along the way.

They should make a formal request from ARFCOM and deputize the members to go handle this tragedy. We could do it.
Link Posted: 8/31/2005 8:28:22 AM EDT
Unfortunately because of the attitudes and idiocy displayed from some of our fellow gun owners, that will never happen. Yeah they take up a small percent but the media makes them seem to be the majority.

Here in Ohio, we have an honest to God state sponsored organized militia. Does LA have anything similar?

ohmr.ohio.gov/
"The Ohio Military Reserve serves under the Governor as Commander in Chief through the office of the Adjutant General. Our primary mission is to provide a cadre level of trained units and equipment capable of expanding in times of necessity to protect life and property, and preserving peace, order, and public safety. In order to accomplish this role OHMR units are trained as Military Police and Medical Support. "

Like the militia is gonna help the situation. If the national guard is having trouble getting around, just what can the militia bring to the table. Sometimes I think some of you guys sit around in your ninja gear, smoking crack, stroking the side of your m4rgery, dreaming up crap while your banging on the keyboard.

Someone post that pic of the 2 real fat guys and the 2 real skinny guys in cammies and shooting handguns. That will explain why they wont want the militia.

Fuck you.

I would imagine a significant number of people reading this board are better equipped
than the national guard, as far as watercraft, off-road vehicles, and weapons.

A bass boat loaded with some well-meaning red-necks is better than what they have now.

Ok dumbass, if your so much better equipped than the national guard then go save NO. So how many helicoptors do you have dumbass, how many 2.5 ton trucks do you have dumbass, how many full auto weapons do you have dumbass. Have you ever seen the boating capabilities of an engineering battalion dumbass. Can you fly in 500,000 gallons of water than transport it to where it is needed. Step away from the crack pipe.
