JoAnn Guidos was one of the many folks whose guns were confiscated in the direct aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Five years later, she is still waiting to get her guns back. Read more of her story at http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=36441
And she’s not alone. If your guns were confiscated, the New Orleans police department’s Hurricane Katrina Firearms page has the information you need to get the process started to get your firearms back.
Even if you don’t live in Louisiana, I urge you to contact your governor and state representatives. Let them know that this sort of behavior won’t be tolerated in your state. It’s pretty clearly laid out in in Article IV of the Bill of Rights: the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
