Gun Confiscation, On September 8, 2005, P. Edwin Compass III, superintendent of police in New Orleans, said civilians are being allowed to carry firearms in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. “Only the law are allowed to have weapons,” he said.
New Orleans Mayor, Ray Nagin, said the Second Amendment would not be tolerated in New Orleans and soon the police, National Guard, the Oklahoma National Guard and U.S. Marshals began going from house to house taking the guns away from citizens.
“A disaster can bring out predators ready to loot, riot and looting by the time they have a chance,” wrote David B. Kopel of Reason on September 10, 2005. “Now we are seeing another awful truth: There is no shortage of police and National Guardsmen who obey illegal orders that threaten peaceful citizens at gunpoint and confiscate their firearms.”
For now, North Carolina has banned residents from carrying weapons outside their homes. But if Hurricane Earl serious wallops the State and the looting and chaos ensues, it is quite possible the police and National Guardsmen were sent, as they were in New Orleans, and deny citizens their right to own firearms, as guaranteed under the Second Amendment, and protection from predators and offenders.
