Bitterly clinging to their guns and religion.
Maybe Obama can calm the storm...

I would suspect there's a lot of veteran non-gun-owners out there who would like, if they have to get one, to get one with which they are already intimately familiar.

Are these people bying the guns in anticipation of the comong of Gustav or the predicted riots when Obambi loses the election. Be safe, do it for either reason.

Always a mistake to depend on the Goobbbermint.

I’ve got my Katrina rifle ready also....heck, I bought two AR-15’s right before the last cane rolled through.
I’d rather have and not need....

I don’t know why they are buying guns and ammo, since if this turns into another Katrina event the feds will go door to door and confiscate all guns again.

AR15s and .223 ammo.
Hmmm, good choice for an all-rounder.
Nothing beats a good 12g for keeping vermin off the porch, though.

I still haven’t figured out the thing about plywood. They live in a storm center and every season, they have to buy more plywood. Wouldn’t workable shutters on these houses save hundreds of dollars a year?

This is an example of piss poor planning. The AR-15 and ammo should have been bought a long time ago. I didn’t need to have an emergency to prepare myself. My house is already wired for the emergency generator sitting in my garage on a trickle charger. I have firearms and ammo for defending myself and for hunting. We have water close by in case the well is unusable and we have food on hand. My wife and I will be able to weather most emergencies quite well.

IMHO, For property defense, they'd be better off with 12 Ga. shotguns with high capacity magazines loaded with 00 Buck.

Of course they are buying guns and ammo. The police stole the stuff they had before Katrina, and it's looking like they might need it again.
I predict if police try to take guns this time, police will be shot. As they should be, since such an action is now a violation of state law, as well as the state and federal constitutions. Hopefully they won't try..hopefully.

The most reliable home defense weapon for the average person would be a shotgun loaded with 00 buckshot. Just point and pull the trigger.
