    Gun confiscation in the wake of Irma

    Im sure everyone remembers how the gun confiscation played out when New Orleans got plowed by Katrina. Looks like the same bullshit may be happening in the Virgin Islands. Sad effing times!!

    GW Bush signed a law making confiscation illegal in the threat of natural disasters because of Katrina!

    This is a simple truth that can not be explained any better...

    Left with no protection after the storm, pay attention kids!

    Before making landfall, the US Virgin Islands’ Gov. Kenneth Mapp seized guns, ammo and other materials from residents, leaving a majority of people completely defenseless during a time of devastation.
    The NRA has already let it be known that they have a serious bone to pick with Gov. Kenneth Mapp, and they plan to take legal action.
    Many residents stuck in this nightmare are living in fear that without immediate intervention of Mapp’s executive order, desperation and a lack of critical resources could eventually lead to a dangerous scenario.
    According to Business Insider, Laura Dixon Strickling, an island resident living with her husband and 1-year-old daughter on St. Thomas – one of the US Virgin Islands – described their current living situation:
    “We’re only five days into this, and it feels like it’s been a lifetime,” Strickling stated. “We don’t have information. We have not seen one first responder. We have not seen one police officer. Everyone in our neighborhood is walking around with sharpened machetes and guns for protection.”
    Exactly how much damage did the small string of islands endure?
    Rep. Stacey Plaskett, the Virgin Islands’ delegate to Congress, spoke with MSNBC and confirmed “St. Thomas and St. John are pretty devastated.”
    “We’ve lost practically 70% of our infrastructure in terms of utility system on the island St. Thomas and all of the utility system on the island of St. John,” Plaskett said.
    For those of you who are more visual, take a look at these heart-stopping satellite photos taken by NASA, showing a before and after photo of the islands since Hurricane Irma wiped them out:

    Sounds to me like Gov. Kenneth Mapp didn't give two shits about that law Bush signed. I agree with Dog, they are for your protection...if your not ready to use them, no need in having them.
    That Gov. should be immediately removed from his position and hung in the streets with the rest of the dirty politicians!

    I'm curious, at what point will people stop accepting things like this and stand up to them? Unfortunately it will turn violent but it's long overdue.

    A great many people still think the government is there to help them. So..Yeah, it will keep happening.

    So what actually did happen?

    Did they confiscate guns or not?

    If so, how many? And how did they do it?
