New Orleans Gun Confiscations

The NOPD has begun door-to-door gun confiscations. (Link points to GeekWithA.45.) Let me get this straight:

  1. The city government -- including the NOPD -- does next to nothing to prepare for a disaster of Biblical proportions,
  2. Due to its incompetence, the NOPD allows thugs to take over the city during the disaster,
  3. Thereby failing to perform the government's most essential function, and
  4. Now that it has failed to protect its citizens, is disarming them so they are unable to defend themselves.
Not only is the NOLA government guilty of dereliction of duty, it is actively placing its citizens in harm's way. I wonder how many good guys are going to die as the result of this?
