"All our operators are busy right now. Please remain on the line and an operator will be with you shortly. Your call is important to us."

Can you imagine any words more horrifying after dialing 9-1-1? Your life's in danger, but there's no one available to help you.

For several days, life was absolutely terrifying for many New Orleans residents who got stranded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. There were no operators ... there were no phone calls being handled.


Heck, there was no 9-1-1. Even if the phone lines had been working, there were no police officers waiting to be dispatched.

Hundreds of New Orleans police officers had fled the city. Some took their badges and threw them out the windows of their cars as they sped away. Others participated in the looting of the city.

To be sure, there are many officers who have acted honorably. Many have given their best effort to apprehend dangerous thugs, even while grieving the loss of their own family members.

But thousands of residents were trapped inside a city, forced to fend for their own safety and well-being.

"It was pandemonium for a couple of nights," said Charlie Hackett, a New Orleans resident. "We just felt that when they got done with the stores, they'd come to the homes."

Hackett was right ... which is why he and his neighbor, John Carolan, stood guard over their homes to ward off looters who, rummaging through the neighborhoods, were smashing windows and ransacking stores.

Armed looters did eventually come to Carolan's house and demanded his generator. But Carolan showed them his gun and they left.

No wonder, then, that gun stores – which weren't under water – were selling firearms at a record pace to people looking to defend themselves. "I've got people like you wouldn't believe, lots of people, coming in and buying handguns," said Briley Reed, the assistant manager of the E-Z Pawn store in Baton Rouge.

"I've even had soldiers coming in here buying guns," Reed said.

Indeed, firearms were the hottest commodity in the days following the massive destruction. In Gulfport, Miss., Ron Roland, 51, used his firearm to stop looters from rummaging through his storm-damaged property.

Roland and his son even performed a citizen's arrest on one plunderer and then warned future thieves by posting the following message in his yard: "NO TRESPASSERS! ARMED HOMEOWNERS."

Signs like this were common throughout the Gulf Coast region in the days following Katrina. And it should serve as a reminder to us that the police can't always be there to protect us.

We should have learned this lesson more than a decade ago when the entire country saw horrifying images during the Los Angeles riots of 1992.

For several days, that city was in complete turmoil as stores were looted and burned. Motorists were dragged from their cars and beaten.

Further aggravating the situation, police were very slow in responding to the crisis. Many Guardsmen, after being mobilized to the affected areas, sat by and watched the violence because their rifles were low on ammunition.

But not everybody in Los Angeles suffered. In some of the hot spots, Korean merchants were able to successfully protect their stores with semi-automatic firearms.

In areas where armed citizens banded together for self-protection, their businesses were spared, while others (which were left unprotected) burned to the ground.

Press reports described how life-long gun-control supporters were even running to gun stores to buy an item they never thought they would need – a gun. Tragically, they were surprised (and outraged!) to learn there was a 15-day waiting period for firearms.

Fast forward more than a decade: It seems we still haven't learned the lessons from previous tragedies. Rather than arming the poor, defenseless survivors who are stranded in New Orleans, Police Superintendent Edwin Compass III has actually ordered the very opposite – the confiscation of legally-owned firearms!

These guns were the only thing that prevented good people from becoming victims in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.


But now, will the police superintendent provide 24-hour, round-the-clock protection for each of these disarmed families? Will he make himself personally liable for anyone who is injured or killed as a result of being prevented from defending himself or his family?

When your life is in danger, you don't want to rely on a police force that is stretched way too thin. And the last thing you want to hear when you call 9-1-1 is: "All our operators are busy right now ..."

That might just be the last thing you ever hear.

Stories like this should knock some sense into anyone who still believes in gun control.
Archie Bunker was right...if you want to stop skyjackings, arm the passengers.
If that were the case, how could the public ever have been sold on the phony 9/11 scenario? :-o

Is everything easy? Is every issue black and white? I suspect not. Absolutely forces for good need to always be organized and vigilant. If that were the case Dubya and his goons would not be in power twice, let alone once.

The Illuminati likes violence, the more the merrier for them. Perhaps things have gotten out of control in the US, and perhaps that is very old news.

If every one had a gun in the airplane... the criminal takes a hostage, and maybe someone near the criminal gets killed by someone with a poor shot. The problem as I see it with guns is that they are offensive primarily. You try to protect your family by killing the intruder, except maybe he's a better shot or has the first shot.

Ultimately I guess, the gun issue is a mini version of Mutual Assured Destruction with nuclear weapons. And arguing for one proves the folly of the other. The problem as I see it for me 'packing heat', is that just about any goon would see me as a potential threat.

If you find yourself in a situation akin to anarchy like the Wild West then by all means apply yourself 24/7 to the miltary defense of your family. But admit that's where you have come to and stop shopping at the mall and watching Hollywood movies. I lived most of my life never having to worry about guns and it's a much better life than gun control advocates are dreaming of.

I recognize that anti-NWO folk see the gun control issue as a campaign of the NWO, and maybe it is. After all they just let things slide, and push a little, and then presto another crisis. I suggest that a NWO free way of life is one where citizens can acculturate to policing their own somehow. Guns are deadly, and the problem they bring never seems to go away does it?

Not having guns when others do who mean to do you harm is even more deadly.
I'm not a man of violence, either, and I don't "pack heat" as a course of my daily routine. But there is no doubt in my mind that eventually the situation will arise where every man and women in this world will have to defend themselves physically -- probably from their own government.
Of course, I was being a bit facetious with the Archie Bunker analogy -- but not entirely. What happened to the ideas of sky marshalls or arming flight crews that were originally bandied about after 9/11? Many other countries have already adopted these guidelines, but the lesson we Americans seem to have been taught by 9/11 is that only government needs to arm itself more lethally.
Yes, the Illuminati like violence and hatred and above all fear. But they are also cowards, and I have never yet seen them engage in anything resembling a fair fight. They prey on the weak and vulnerable.
So don't be weak and vulnerable. That's all I'm saying.

I don't agree with "everyone get a gun."

Just want they want!

Don't you see that?

Arm ourselves to fight who? THEM???

NOT!!!

GUNS KILL!! You betcha, especially if your aim is good. The day they don't I will dismantle mine and buy knives.

From childhood I was taught to respect firearms, they were not toys and were forbidden to be touched. They were kept safely out of reach. As I grew up, my Father taught me gun safety, how to shoot and clean/maintain firearms.

He was the most kind and gentle man I have ever known but he was a realist. He knew that the police could not be everywhere at one time in cases of emergency. Under optimum conditions their response time is such that you can be killed many times over by an armed intruder or assailant.

He was a veteran of World War II, serving in the Medical Corp. but he hated war, never once refering to WWII as "the good war," believing that there was no such thing.

He believed, as do I, that the greatest threat to our freedom would come from our own government and not some invading force. My love of History was another of his legacies; repeatedly it has proven him to be right in so many of his beliefs.

Where guns are concerned, it is better to have them and not need them than it is to need them and not have them.

Without the Second Amendment, all the others can and ultimately will evaporate and disappear like the dew on a summer morning.

Next month we will have a referendum in Brazil to prohibit the sales of guns. The thing was scheduled in a way that the law will pass. Everybody is afraid of crime and of course will say "yes". There has been no deep debate.

The only people with guns will be the criminals.

A good example of the results of a government ban on guns is Washington D.C. After the ban on guns D.C. lead the nation in murders. Guess how they were murdered? Not by ketup buddy, but guns. It seems that the gun ban effectively prevented the law abiding citizen from having a gun, but for the criminals it was business as usual. This is going to be the fate of Brazil. The criminals will have guns and the law abiding citizens will be at the mercy of the government.

I love seeing people who look at this world through the eyes of a realist. Barbara,I'd feel comfortable you guarding my six anytime. I have noticed that there are many pacifist here on this forum. Send them to New Orleans,South Central LA, or Chicago where I grew up. Some of us can not afford the upper class neighborhoods, or live amongst intellectuals in some sort of utopia. We live in the real world, and it's dog eat dog. If I'm not mistaken in Matthew Christ said to sell your cloak to buy a sword. Why? To defend yourselves! Please, if Christ was a total pacifist why did he go into the temple and attack the moneychangers and those selling in the temple, a holy place. He doesn't want us to lay idle and let people slit our throats. Well to the pacifists, when they are there to slit your throat you'll be glad to see my shotgun or pistol saving your bacon.

The GOD described in the Bible and his Son Jesus Christ are no pacifists. The churches of man have reduced them to this. The GOD of the bible can be frightening and read of his Son's return in The Revelations. The human race wants to debate everything, I want to see them debate with GOD or better yet I AM THAT I AM.

We make the guns - not the soldiers. It may be thought, if people stop making bullets NOW, 'they' wouldn’t have enough.
However, by the time we get to that point, they wont be using bullets anymore.

I will mention just this one thing.

Cut the head off the great snake.

INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT KILLING KIDS THAT WILL BE ARMED LATER IN OUR FUTURE, HOW ABOUT WE CHANGE THEIR FUTURES NOW! HOW ABOUT WE GET THOSE GAMES BANNED, TEACH OUR KIDS THAT GUNS ARE DANGEROUS LIKE BARBARA'S DAD DID. VIOLENCE DOESNT DO ANYTHING BUT CREATE MORE VIOLENCE. GETTING GUNS ISNT DOING ANYTHING BUT STEPPING BACKWARDS. HOW CAN WE RID SOCIETY OF GUNS AND WEAPONS IF WE CONSTANTLY PROMOTE THE PURCHASE OF THEM? IT HAS TO START SOMEWHERE. I HAVE THE PERFECT EXAMPLE. JESUS DIDNT RESIST THE ROMANS COMING TO APREHEND HIM. HE SAID IF YOU LIVE BY THE SWORD, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE BY ONE! HE WENT TO HIS DEATH. NOW IF YOU ARE FACING DEATH BY AN ARMED PERSON AND YOU HAVE NO WEAPON, THEN THATS GOD'S WILL AND ITS YOUR TIME TO GO. IF YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO LIVE ANY LONGER, GOD WONT EVEN PUT YOU IN THAT SITUATION IF HE KNOWS YOU WONT COME OUT ALIVE. COME ON PEOPLE, USE YOUR BRAINS!

BILL COSBY SAID WHEN HIS SON WAS MURDERED THAT HIS SON WASNT IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME, THE MURDERER(AN INSTRUMENT OF THE DEVIL) WAS IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME. IF YOUR STILL NEEDED BY GOD, GOD WILL PERMIT YOU TO PREVAIL AND OVERCOME, IF NOT, IT WAS YOUR TIME TO GO.

BUT YALL CAN ALL GO BUY GUNS IF YOU LIKE, EVERYBODY GET A GUN, LET THE WORLD ARM ITSELF AND I GUARANTEE, IT WILL GET NO BETTER.

AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING ELSE, I READ A BOOK CALLED "NETU METR". IT SAYS THE WORLD(THE NATURAL WORLD, WATER, TREES, YOUR INTERNAL ORGANS, GODS CREATIONS BASICALLY) IS MADE UP OF ENTITIES. THEY CREATE "ORDER" AND YOUR SPIRIT IS IN TUNE WITH THEM.

NOW THERE ARE 3 TYPES OF PEOPLE.
1) HE WHO IS ONLY IN TUNE WITH THE PHYSICAL (MAN'S CREATIONS, LIMITED)

2) HE WHO IS ONLY IN TUNE WITH THE SPIRITUAL(GOD'S CREATIONS, UNLIMITED, EXAMPLE JESUS)

3) THEN THERE IS THE MAN WHO USES #1 AND #2 WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY THE BETTER MAN

GUNS ARE MANS CREATION AND IS A LIMITED RESOURCE. THE WORLD(HUMAN RACE) ISNT IN TUNE WITH THE SPIRITUAL ASPECT OF LIFE. THE SPIRITUAL PART(THE ENTITIES I REFFERED TO) IS WHAT GIVES ORDER TO OUR WORLD. WE ARE OUT OF TUNE WITH THESE ENTITIES WHICH IS WHY THE WORLD IS OUT OF ORDER. THE "NWO" IS A FALSE ORDER THAT IS YET TO COME AND HE WANTS YOU TO BUY ALL THE GUNS YOU CAN. HE WANTS YOU TO TRY AND OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT, BECAUSE ALL THOSE CRIMINALS YOU KILL, ALL THOSE POLITICIANS AND SOLDIERS YOU WOULD KILL, THEY'RE ALL EXPENDIBLE IN THE EYES OF SATAN!

Look out for the National Guard, coming to your area soon! But of course they won't be helping with "law enforcement" duties. Of course not.

There is a spirit of bland lust and sensuality which expresses itself in abusive and sadistic acts, such as lighting small animals on fire or pinching them with pliers, etc., just to hear their screams of pain. There is no connection (empathy) for those under this kind of oppression. It simply exites them, and they don't even know why.

Guns are used almost incessantly in the media as "power multipliers" in will-to-power scenarios. We ignore the symbolic value of this to our peril because the greatest intoxicants are spiritual in nature.

"Cutting off the head of the snake" would surely kill the beast, but this analogy can be misapplied with disastrous results. For example, many Muslims and others with animosity towards the US, upon hearing rumours of the 9/11 attacks, mistakenly assumed that it was a coup against the US government and that Bin Laden would actually take control of Washington! Ridiculous from our way of thinking, but their military rely heavily on authority figures, so for them it would be closer to the truth.

Many nefarious organisations have secrecy and insular LOC's in order to prevent this kind of fiasco: cut the head off the chicken and it can still run.

Since when does the NWO support gun control?

They prefer everyone have a gun so we can kill each other.

Exactly why it's so easy to buy illegal guns.

They are supplied through their weapon's dealers.

You know, it really burns me to hear about people coming down on firearms when most of them have never picked one up. I am ex-military, ex-law enforcement and was never around a firearm until then. I have seen the worst man can do to one another. They do not need a gun to do it either. I have seen the results of unarmed people tortured to death by their supposed government. I have seen the results of a rape and murder of an unarmed woman.Neither had the benefit of a firearm, nor was a firearm used in the crimes. But I have also seen the results, very similar too in circumstance, of would be victims that had firearms, and lived. Man will never change or evolve out of his need for wanton violence. Period. We still have our Vandals, Huns, Vikings, etc. We never left the dark ages, only in technology. Until there is some sort of genetic re-engineering, man will be this way. And until then, you will need weapons, be it knife, sword, bow, firearms to defend life and liberty.Do you think the NWO will stop and have their men throw down their arms and surrender without a fight? If so, you are deluding yourself. And for those who feel that fighting the NWO is a lost cause and that using a gun will make it worse, here is a quote especially for you.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
- Samuel Adams
