While the mice are away the cat will play? The Royal Canadian Mounted Police used the flooding and evacuation as a convenient excuse to round up legally owned, private citizens’ guns (hat-tip The Blaze) in Alberta, Canada where recent high water and flooding forced owners from their properties.
One business owner was ticked off and rightly so.
“Now what they’re doing is looking for firearms and ammunition. How do they have the right to do that? What does that have to do with the disaster? …This is martial law. What has happened to our country?”
Reminds me of Hurricane Katrina in September of 2005 where New Orleans PD and the US Army National Guard, along with US Marshals confiscated all civilian-held firearms. It took the NRA & the Second Amendment Foundation filing suit some 7 months later to get the City of New Orleans even to admit they had seized weapons.
And what about Watertown, MASS? After the Boston Marathon bombings heavily armed goon squads went door to door yanking US citizens out of their homes at gun point and openly confiscated lawfully owned firearms from its residents.
This is why we have to stand firm every time, every issue and every excuse they use to treat US citizens like outlaws and confiscate lawfully owned weapons. This would be a good time to join the NRA. They’re fighting for our 2nd Amendments rights.
