    It has been on the news today that legal guns are being taken from law abiding citizens in unflooded areas, leaving them and their property unprotected. Is this right / legal. The criminals causing the problems will still have their weapons. How is this going to help. What's next...the removal of rifles during the next blackout?
    I just wanted to get some feedback and see what others thought. I have read some blogs about the subject, and most are against the action.

    No idea if it's legal, but sure doesn't seem right. Who knows, NO officials are so screwed up.

    Have they declared Martial Law there? If so, then they perhaps can suspend certain rights like the right to bear arms...

    OP: I hadn't heard about this...can you provide a link. (my first thought was that depending on where thry were relocated to, the right to carry might be restricted.)

    On the news I have seen that they are confiscating all weapons from every civilian -- even the ones they have allowed (temporarily) to stay.

    Well, that is certainly in violation of their constitutional rights. I wish those people good luck in court though! When it comes down to it, law enforcement can do pretty much whatever it wants. If they're wrong, oh well.

    It would probably depend on whether there is Martial Law installed in N.O. (I am kind of thinking yes because the Mayor mentioned that it was only in the last couple of days that he gave the authority to the National Guard to pull out people who refused to leave.)

    The argument would be if Martial Law is in place, your constitutional rights have been suspended (which means 'technically' that they can't be violated.)

    Here is the only place I found concerning removing weapons, from the deputy police chief of NO

    As many as 10,000 people were believed to be stubbornly staying put in the city, despite orders from the mayor earlier this week to leave or be removed by force. By midmorning, though, there were no reports of anyone being taken out forcibly, police said.

    Police are "not going to do that until we absolutely have to. We really don't want to do that at all," Deputy Chief Warren Riley said.

    Some residents who had previously refused to leave _ whether because they wanted to protect their homes from looters, they did not want to leave their pets behind, or they simply feared the unknown _ are now changing their minds and asking to be rescued, police said.

    "They realize they're not going to this awful situation like the Superdome or the Convention Center," Riley said. "As days go by, it seems less and less likely that we'll have to force anyone."

    He added: "I don't know of any incidents where people are being belligerent."

    Some residents said they left under extreme pressure.

    "They were all insisting that I had to leave my home," said Shelia Dalferes, who said she had 15 minutes to pack before she and her husband were evacuated. "The implication was there with their plastic handcuffs on their belt. Who wants to go out like that?"

    Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Jason Rule said his crew pulled 18 people from their homes Thursday. He said some of the holdouts did not want to leave unless they could take their pets.

    "It's getting to the point where they're delirious," Rule said. "A couple of them don't know who they were. They think the water will go down in a few days."

    On Thursday, in the city's well-to-do Lower Garden District, a neighborhood with many antebellum mansions, members of the Oklahoma National Guard seized weapons from the inhabitants of one home. Those who were armed were handcuffed and briefly detained before being let go.

    "No one will be able to be armed. We are going to take all the weapons," Riley said.
