The Great New Orleans Gun Grab

The Great New Orleans Gun Grab by Gordon Hutchinson & Todd Masson is due to be released on November 15.

August 29, 2005, was a day no American will ever forget. When Hurricane Katrina, one of the top five-strongest storms ever to build in the Atlantic Basin, slammed into the city of New Orleans, her towering storm surge tested the limits of the flood walls and levees protecting one of America’s largest cities. The surge would find them lacking.

As the city filled and drowned, it descended into mass hysteria and anarchy, and within hours became a place that would reveal to Americans whether their Constitution had any more value than the frayed, fragile, brown parchment on which it is written.

As looters and thugs took over, the city’s leaders turned their crosshairs and iron sights toward the lawful, gun-toting citizens who sought nothing more than to defend themselves from the marauding hordes. In what proved to be the greatest real-life test case of the Second Amendment in American history, America failed miserably.

The Great New Orleans Gun Grab tells the story of New Orleans residents who legally defied mandatory evacuation orders to protect their property, and who were subsequently beaten, harassed and robbed of their guns by the very civil authority that was funded and charged to protect them.

My copy arrived in the mail yesterday and I'm about halfway through it. Wouldn't have known about it if you hadn't posted.

I'm originally from N.O. but now living in Florida, I still have family there so I remain interested in their issues. Of course, this one goes far beyond the Crescent City.

Thanks for the post.

Now if I can just find an affordable new 1911... :-)
