    They did the same thing in New Orleans during Katrina.

    No one is required to follow an unconstitutional order. Is the National Guard really going to shoot someone standing guard outside their house? I'd take my chances.

    I mentioned this subject on another site and someone replied "They were only confiscating registered fire arms" in the Virgin Islands...The next time somebody asks me "Is that gun registered"? How do you register a gun in the state of Kentucky?

    dont know how many people over the years tell me they would get a gun for protection but they dont want to go through the hassle of a license/registration/etc. When I tell them those thing dont exist, they look at me like I have two heads and think Im lying.

    It's crazy what people believe about guns. Saw someone on FB arguing with everyone about how the gov't has all these databases full of our info that can be used to confiscate guns. The funny part is that he really wasn't arguing that the gov't keeps records of all the 4473's, but was arguing things like if you buy a fishing license, they can assume you have a gun. What was really funny is that people basically cornered him into saying that because you have a SSN, you're in a database they can use to know who has guns.

    A severe violation of the Constitution. This governor should be removed immediately for failing to comply with his oath.

    FYI, try reading the Territorial Clause of the Constitution, and applicable case law. Then, post back here about how the BOR applies, along with any other Constitutional protections.
