Guilty! Guilty as Hell!
At the time of the post-Katrina gun confiscations, Warren Riley was second in command beneath Police Superintendent Eddie Compass. Compass made a futile attempt at saving his boss when he fell on his sword, and Warren Riley assumed his position on the police force. Since that time, Riley declared he would again confiscate firearms in a disaster. He later rethought his statements.
Under the terms of the injunction, Mayor Ray Nagin, Police Chief Warren Riley and any agents or employees of the City of New Orleans shall:
· cease and desist confiscating lawfully possessed firearms from all citizens.
· make an aggressive attempt to return any and all firearms which may have been confiscated during the period August 29 to December 31, 2005.
· within one month of the settlement, post on the City website the procedure for the return of confiscated firearms. This notice must include an interactive form for those claiming firearms to fill out, resulting in timely transmission of the information to the appropriate official. All other information on claiming a firearm will also be included on the site.
· within one month of the settlement, the City must mail notices to all individuals who are identified on the property tags of firearms in the City's possession which were confiscated during the aftermath of Katrina.
Thank you NRA and SAF! If you, as a gun owner have not yet joined, do so.
