Letter to the Editor: Disarming Citizens in Louisiana

Editor,

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, certain federal agencies confiscated the firearms of citizens of the State of Louisiana. This violated the Second Amendment, deprived these citizens of the right to keep and bear arms, and rendered them helpless against criminal activities.

The Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 5013 in the U.S. House of Representatives and S. 2599 in the U.S. Senate) would prohibit such unlawful activities in the future. Federal agents could not seize any legal firearm nor disarm any person authorized to carry a firearm simply because they are operating in an emergency situation.

Furthermore, this legislation would prevent would-be tyrants from opening a loophole in the Second Amendment by branding any situation an "emergency." Concerned citizens who value their freedom should immediately contact their U.S. Representative and both U.S. Senators to urge them to pass this Protection Act.
