Ceremonial in their ability to protect us from the government? Yes. Ceremonial in their ability to protect us from each other? Hardly.

God bless the castle doctrine. I can't believe a law so sensical ever made it through the Louisiana legislature.

It's big so I linked to it. I uploaded it full size, but the shreveport.com server scaled it down to 1800xsomething.

I think you are the guy licking the girl in the center, perhaps?

Although the "registration-legislation-confiscation-eradication" scenario has historically been the way tyrannical regimes have rendered their populations helpless and ripe for oppression, there are no set rules, no "Dictators Playbook" that must be followed. The bad guy's have learned a thing or two since Hitler and Stalin's time. In all likelihood, they'll do it exactly the way they did it in New Orleans...they'll just show up on our doorsteps one day or night, demandin that we turn over our guns as they ransack our homes. And this is why we must be forever vigilant, forever suspicious of government inquiries as to whether we own any guns, what type and how many. I think it would be prudent to view the New Orleans Gun Grab as a possible test run...that is, a small-scale experiment designed to gauge the level of resistence to gun confiscation in advance of a nationwide attempt to disarm the American public.

Hey Vix, it's quotes like these that will make great CNN news bytes later after the police end your standoff!

I can't IMAGINE why there would be a standoff, with the police or military....unless they just wanted to take my weapons. In that case, I couldn't care less about sound bites- especially since NOBODY is watching CNN
