Forget the Constitution, We're Protecting You!!

Wow. Simply Wow. Via the Instapundit:

NEW ORLEANS: WE CAN'T PROTECT YOU FROM LOOTERS -- but we can confiscate your guns!

Unless you're hired security for rich people. (More here).

UPDATE: Cam Edwards: "Talk about class warfare. If you're rich enough to hire someone to defend your property, you're okay. If you're not... you're SOL."

A quote from the NY Times artice:
NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 8 - Waters were receding across this flood-beaten city today as police officers began confiscating weapons, including legally registered firearms, from civilians in preparation for a mass forced evacuation of the residents still living here.

No civilians in New Orleans will be allowed to carry pistols, shotguns or other firearms, said P. Edwin Compass III, the superintendent of police. "Only law enforcement are allowed to have weapons," he said.
