NRA Sues Mayor Ray Nagin

From an email. As a life member, it's good to see the NRA standing up for our constitutional rights.

NRA Sues Mayor Ray Nagin

Fairfax, VA-The National Rifle Association (NRA ) has filed a motion for contempt against the City of New Orleans, the mayor and the acting chief of police for failure to comply with a temporary restraining order, handed down September 12, 2005, ordering an end to all illegal gun confiscations.

"With looters, rapists and other thugs running rampant in New Orleans, Ray Nagin issued an order to disarm all law-abiding citizens," declared Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president. "With no law enforcement and 911 available, he left the victims vulnerable by stripping away their only means of defending themselves and their loved ones. Now Ray Nagin thinks he's above the law, and that's just wrong."

Attorneys for NRA have exhausted all efforts to cooperate with the defendants, Mayor Nagin and Chief Riley, who repeatedly ignored the court's permanent restraining order against their illegal gun confiscations.

"Ray Nagin is a colossal disappointment," said Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist. "During a federally declared emergency, he abused his power and abandoned the very people he was sworn to protect. He took away the victims' freedom and their basic means of self-defense during an ill-fated and perilous time."

The motion also includes an order that all seized firearms must be returned to their rightful owners.

My my how the NRA works with the corrupt Bush administration to take the heat off FEMA and Bush for the disaster of New Orleans! You should be outraged by this coordination of efforts. But I am sure you will find someway to justify this action.

You libs crack me up. You think that all stories you read in the paper that you disagree with are somehow linked together in a great conspiracy. Like anyone really cares enough about what you nuts think to bother to create a conspiracy.

If you bothered to follow the news somewhere other than on fruitcake liberal blogs, you would know that the NRA filed its first lawsuit within days after the hurricane passed through and has been continuing action on this matter ever since.

Just because you liberals believe that Democrats can do no wrong and that Republicans can do nothing right, you think that people outside your own brainwashed group are incapable of independent thought and independent action.
