Gotta respectfully disagree with you on that. As a "law enforcement" I whole heartedly support private gun ownership, and CCDW. I wish more people would excercise their rights, there would be much less crime guarenteed. If you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns!
I personally think that the illegal gun confiscation during Katrina was perpitrated by small groups of inept police taking orders from inept supervisors, and was not a systematic gun confiscation, just as rouge groups of police killed left behind animals, and stole/looted from stores.
It's like anything a few bad apples spoil the whole basket.
