Comments: Another Confiscation In Louisiana

In addition to the so-called "public servants" violating me, none of the newspapers have the courage to expose these criminals by reporting this story. As Benjamin Franklin once said, "the NEWSPAPERS are to be the watchdogs of liberty."

Unfortunately, Ben Franklin (and the others) presumed that the press would think like they did. Not become power mongers themselves.

*shakes head* Jeeze...

Well, I guess after Edwin Compass' sterling example of how Louisiana po-lice feel about private gun ownership, I shouldn't be appalled by this... but I still am.

Good luck, Mark.

Living in Baton Rouge, at one time I thought about getting a job in Law Enforcement in Ascension Parish (where Gonzales is located). Not any more...

And the really ironic part? Less than 20 miles away, a police officer in Baton Rouge might owe his life tonight to an armed citizen. He made a traffic stop and the driver assaulted him, breaking his jaw. (http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/2330586.html) It appears that, in response to the cries for help from the officer, a bystander may have shot and killed the man assaulting the officer.

I guess it was a good thing that bystander had not been to Tanger the week before and had his weapon confiscated, eh?
