Don't you think it is odd?<quoted text>
You have any proof of that?
When the shit hits the fan and there are legitimate, immediately obvious reasons why people needed to be armed. To defend themselves and their families...when they need them most, your govt will not allow you to be armed.
Katrina demonstrated that in the event of a natural disaster...
There will be no command structure.
There will be no police.
There will be no rights.
Your govt WILL confiscate your weapons.
Your govt WILL forcibly remove you from your homes.
Probably the most telling piece of the bullshit puzzle is the reason they gave residents that their weapons needed to be confiscated.
"Why the hell are you breaking into our house and taking our weapons?"
-- "Someone could break into your house and take them."
I count at least three complete breakdowns of common sense in that answer.
1. Isn't someone breaking into your house one of the primary reasons for owning firearms in the first place?
2. How do they reason you will fare better without them? The absence of weapons isn't exactly apparent till these would be intruders search for them. So, it doesn't prevent a break in.
3. Breaking into someones house to take their weapons in order to prevent someone from breaking into your house to take their weapons isn't exactly reasonable.
#2 Reminds me of a scam the State Police run out here. They NEED all of your expired medication. If you have expired medication you are to report to a State Police collection facility. Now, it isn't real difficult to figure out what they do with them. The kick in the teeth is the reason given for turning them in.
"Someone could break in and steal them."
