I've been to NO two times, both for business conventions. Each time I walked around the French Quarter and marveled in in a kind of morbid fascination how people could live with the smell of rotting garbage, urine, vomit and beer everywhere. I'd never actually "wish" to be there.
And I think that taking away guns from lawful citizens is asking to get shot.
But I also think that when the Coast Guard is tasked with interdicting anything and everything, they have my OK to kick someone's ars if need be. But then again, I'm one of those people who think that if you make the police chase you then they should not only be allowed to beat you up, they should be encouraged to beat you up when they catch you.
Coasties are the best, and if they wanted to board my ship with guns then so be it. I'd probably treat it as if I were at an air show and thankful to have the opportunity to see some of the cool hardware my tax dollars are paying for.
Yeah and maybe they can quarter some troops at your house!
