It is amazing how short-sighted people can be.
Once a right has been lost, it is often a monumental task to get it restored, if it can be.
Hopefully, we will not let things like that happen.
As Wayne has commented on before, "Remember New Orleans" is kind of a battle cry to comment on how, in a crisis situation, the police and National Guard went door to door taking legal firearms from homeowners and in some cases, just breaking in and searching for and removing found firearms in some weird effort to "protect society."
Upon the orders of the Courts, those firearms had to be returned to their lawful owners but still, that was not a good thing to have happen, especially inlight of all the lawlessness that was going on in that area at the time.
