"People are saying Bush caused the huricane.."

"Carl Rove's secret weather machine"

"The hurricane was racist..."

"I wanna move on and talk about John Roberts...."
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 11:25:41 AM EDT
Just seems to be alot of political commentary? Bush blamed for hurricane, Kayne West being boo'd at NFL game, and John Roberts trying to become the Chief Justice...


EPOCH

They talked about NO for a couple of minutes.

Short version is they talked about media reports of people being disarmed,
but they said they had no direct proof and were looking into it.

Took a couple of phone calls from listeners about it, and moved on
to Kanye West being booed at the NFL thing last night.

Now on to John Roberts stuff.....

And that's where they're at....John Roberts.

As usual, the NRA is bunkered down, frozen in place
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 11:41:42 AM EDT
They talked about it for about 10 minutes at the begining of the cast, The Commentatior said he was in disbeleif and had several callers on the subject, but no official statement from the NRA at this time.



I Did just receive an E-mail from the NRA;

Numerous media sources are reporting on an apparent campaign by New Orleans city authorities to confiscate lawfully-owned firearms from people in the city. Louisiana statute does grant the government, during a state of emergency, broad powers in regulating and controlling firearms.

However, we have seen not just with Hurricane Katrina, but other similar situations, that when police are unable to control the criminal element, people turn to the one freedom that protects all others-the Second Amendment.

While one can certainly understand the dire predicaments of all those affected by Hurricane Katrina, as we have learned throughout history, campaigns to disarm the lawful do nothing to disarm the criminal. And in truth, these restrictions make citizens less safe. Despite the valiant efforts of many law enforcement officers and rescue workers, too many of those left in the wake of Katrina are ultimately responsible for their own security and safety and that of their families and loved ones; especially when communication is virtually non-existent and police can't be quickly summoned to respond to calls for help. At these times, lawful gun ownership is paramount to personal safety.

Of course, the entire situation in New Orleans is constantly in flux. But rest assured NRA is monitoring this situation very closely and will address any activity by the government that unduly infringes upon the rights of lawful gun owners at the appropriate time. As we learn more, we will report to our members accordingly. In the interim, however, we join with all Americans in offering our thoughts, prayers, and assistance to the victims and survivors of this terrible natural disaster.

Instead of "monitoring" why don't they get their attorneys involved and get an injunction?

I can just imagine how the liberal media and Pelosi's crew will spin any public annoucement by the NRA to maintain gun ownership rights in NOLA. Makes me sick.

I got the same form Email. What I find irritating is:

"Louisiana statute does grant the government, during a state of emergency, broad powers in regulating and controlling firearms."

The NRA should have challenged this before the disaster, not after (unless you need a test case, in which case they almost certainly have some by now).

But a state statute cannot take away or negate a right provided by the federal constition. Well at least, that's the way the LAW states it, but I guess that doesn't apply anymore.

How about they verify the reports first instead of doing the Chicken Little routine, eh?

As a member of the NRA I have not been seeing much activity from them. As a member of the VCDL I find that much can be accomplished by being aggressive in fighting gun grabbers.

What has the NRA done to help this situation?
