Five years later, no accountability for post-Katrina gun grab

"Five years ago this weekend, Hurricane Katrina slammed into southern Louisiana and Mississippi, devastating the City of New Orleans, killing hundreds of people and setting the stage for an outrage that still angers American gun rights advocates."

"In the days after Katrina hammered New Orleans and adjacent St. Tammany Parrish, an order was issued that only police would be allowed to have guns. Law enforcement personnel from various other states, as far away as New York and California, along with National Guard troops came in to help restore order. In the process, many citizens’ firearms were seized, sometimes at gunpoint, and invariably with the use of intimidation." ...

"One thing that I have always tried to do is keep an open mind to new ideas that cross my desk. Rather than dismiss things with a dictatorial wave of the hand, I have taken a 'let's test it and see' approach. ..."

"It was with that attitude that I considered the issue of carrying two pistols. The idea is not new by any stretch, but it came up recently during a discussion with SI Staffer Roger Phillips on the ambidextrous pistol training we were working on. Earlier, I had seen the concept at a Zero To Five Feet class. A student, 'Frankdude72', wore two AIWB Glocks during the force on force work and did quite well." ...
 

Does the Chiappa Rhino Need Rhinoplasty?

"Yesterday, I suggested that the Chiappa Rhino could be a big hit, thanks to its entirely sensible caliber (.357), promise of low(er) recoil and totally rad design (Battlestar Gallactica meets Terminator). According to the presser, the gat has a hexagonal barrel. The side-on pics didn't show much on that front (so to speak). So I contacted my main man Charles Brown over at MKS Marketing. He sent me these shots ... for your dining and dancing pleasure. Notice that the Rhino's barrel is flat-sided, which should make the gun easier to carry. I still think the 4" barrel version will be The One. Meanwhile, good grief! Charlie’s sending TTAG a testing and evaluation model. We promise to review the weapon the same day it’s received. ..."
 

Gun violence remains a moral outrage

... "There is great anguish and outrage at the prospect of the legalization of same-sex marriage, that it will lead to the moral collapse of America. I suggest that a country that has legalized the killing of unborn children and the unchecked production, distribution and ownership of handguns and assault rifles that have no use other than the killing of human beings has already reached the depths of moral decay. Even if the Supreme Court declares same-sex marriage legal, as they have declared that anyone with a uterus has the right to kill a child, and that the Second Amendment, written in the 18th Century, which has been obsolete for 175 years, is somehow still valid in the 21st Century, these issues will never be 'settled law' in God's court."

'Parada was formally charged with felony burglary and remained behind bars Friday on $50,000 bail. His next court date is Sept. 3. ...'

"The resisting-arrest conviction last week of Felicia Gibson has left a lot of people wondering. Can a person be charged with resisting arrest while observing a traffic stop from his or her own front porch?"

"Salisbury Police Officer Mark Hunter thought so, and last week District Court Judge Beth Dixon agreed. Because Gibson did not at first comply when the officer told her and others to go inside, the judge found Gibson guilty of resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer."

"Gibson was not the only bystander watching the action on the street. She was the only one holding up a cell-phone video camera. But court testimony never indicated that Hunter told her to stop the camera; he just told her to go inside." ...
