Hello all. As many may know, privately owned firearms were confiscated in the wake of Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. That sparked serious outcry about individual rights, particularly during an emergency when private citizens were pretty much on their own. The State of Louisiana past a bill to prevent it, as did congress at the federal level and then President Bush signed it into law. My question is this: on what legal grounds did they justify the wholesale confiscation of private property and, for the matter, property protected by the Second Amendment.? Anyone have some insight on this one? Thanks all.
