should the rescuers have firearms in N.O. now?

  • Yes they need to protect themselves, and others.

  • No, everybody will realize they are there to help and will behave.

I just flipped CNN on and caught the last FEW seconds of a interview with singer celine dion.

:shock:
:shock:
She was balling her eyes out and waving her arms around, screaming "why do they need to have guns down there, the people need help........"

What a dumb ahem individual (from canuk)

So here it is boys and girls:
Should the rescuers be allowed to have guns down there, or should they just wear their vests and throw rocks?

Granted, as time goes on, at some point it WILL be safer to be down there, but do you think it is safe enough now , as she is suggesting?

I guess I really don't understand why some of the citizens are shooting at people who are trying to help? :?:

But if it was me I'd want to be able to protect myself from idiots I'm trying to help that are shooting at me.

Who the heck would say no to that question on this forum?

I guess really nobody, I would hope nobody in the US with a tv who has watched the news reports about these conditions, But you just never know.

After all, she (celine dion) did say that the guns were not needed, and the last I heard, she was living in vegas. People will listen to her, see her tears and, cuz she is a super star, believe her that nothing bad ever happens or is happening down there crimminal wise.

Hell ya they should have weapons ... one of the things that scares me about that situation down thier is that I hope the LEOs and natural guard are not in a shoot first mentality when they see people open carry.

Not every civilian with a gun is a badguy. I have seen in a couple of shots that they are searching peoples stuff and some cars of people leaving the city. I know that if I was able to drive out I would be sure to carry my 4 weapons with me (w/the recipts showing I paid for them). Push come to shove I should be able to pawn 2 of them for money.I wonder if they are taking any weapons they find in vehicles that are leaving the city?

Probably from the safety of her home in Canada. :roll:

At first glance, I was wondering who in the hell would raise such a ridiculous question. Then I saw it was prompted by a pseudo-frog singer from Canada.

I'd say she should shut up and stick to singing - but I find her songs annoying. I'd say she should just shut up and stand there looking good, but she can't since her face looks like the ass-end of a french poodle.

I escorted gas tankers during the 70's fuel crisis and you bet your sweet ass I wasn't riding on one of those trucks without my trusty M-16 and a couple hundred rounds. This is not your typical storm relief duty. When the thugs started the shooting and looting, they set the ground rules for the engagement.

Dude, you got to stop bringing these threads back from the dead... This is literally ten years old. Half of these guys might be dead for all we know.
