    In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, police in New Orleans confiscated thousands of guns from residents in an effort to keep guns out of the hands of anyone who wasn’t law enforcement.

    Louisiana residents feel that their constitutional rights were violated and proceeded to sue the city of New Orleans with the help of the National Rifle Association.

    Richard Styron and his friend Wayne Schum were crossing Lake Ponchartrain about a week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall.

    “I had almost six inches of water to a foot in my house, but it was still there,” Styron said.

    After getting Styron’s weapons and valuables from his house, the pair proceeded to cross back across the lake.

    “We had heard about all the stuff that was going on in New Orleans, all the shootings and the people that were getting hurt, some killed from what I was told,” Styron said.

    Law enforcement ended up stopping their boat and taking their weapons.

    It is if they STILL haven't had their guns returned and now have to sue to get them back.


    I hope they win. :clap2:

    The story is FRESH from Russia Today. The only source of honest American news because it isn't politically corrected for sensitive ears.

    Apparently Russia is about five years behind the times.

    But where did those guns go? Did the police dump them? Or did they find themselves across the border in the hands of the drug cartels.

    American gun owners are getting blamed for what the NOPD might have done.

    So if one of your dumbfuck race has a rally that claims Mexico owns the southwest of America and a riot breaks out where people are killed today, according to your logic, it is not a current event because the Mexicans were disputing a claim that they LOST after the US Mexican War was won by the US over 1 1/2 centuries ago.

    What a beaner! HA! HA! HA!
