    I was chatting with a buddy this past weekend and somehow we got onto the subject of the semi-recent New Orleans gun confiscation related to hurricane Katrina. They basically went door-to-door taking all the guns. He suggested buying a gun or two from an individual, so it wouldn't be on a list of things to be taken from you....since you don't have to register firearms in Texas and the least documented way to legally buy one is from an individual.

    What is your opinion: Could it happen in Texas? If so, would you want something left behind so that the bad guys (looters, crooks, whatever) were not the only ones left armed?

    I certainly would, but I don't think it would happen in Texas. We are a different breed.

    I wonder if the folks in New Orleans thought it couldn't happen there.....and we all know that those guys are a different breed too.

    Just curious..

    I'm sure they did, but if we were dealing with someone on that scale I'm not giving up anything. Especially after seeing how that fiasco was handled.

    Yep, since there is no legal requirement in the great state of Texas to register firearms from private party sales, this is a perfectly valid thing to do.

    Honestly, I don't think it could happen in Texas. I forget the exact bill however Governor Perry signed one into law specifically to outlaw any such confiscations happening in Texas. I like that guy! If things went horribly wrong and such a thing happened here, while it may sound unsavory to some, I will put up armed resistance if forced to do so. I'm not giving up anything, especially seeing as I would not have broken any laws to warrant it. The day citizens at large are forced to resist such unconstitutional acts and are killed in their own homes by LE/Military would be the worst day this country has ever faced. Lets hope it never comes to that. It may sound tinfoil hat to some, though as we've seen it already happened in Louisiana even after no one ever thought it possible.

    I dont want any trouble with the law. having said that I will not give up my guns. they are mine and the constitution says I have a right to them. If they come for them they better have a piece of paper that says the constitiution is gone. and they better be ready to taake them by force.

    I live by the law, some of them I dont like, but I live by them anyway. but that is one law I will not abide by. My guns are a right given to me by the founding fathers, and I will not comprimize on it.

    God, Guns and real men made America. the least we can do is try and keep it that way.

    They did not go door to door. They went to a few doors. They did not have a list, so buying a gun with no paperwork does not matter. They searched the homes.

    Texas passed a law in the last session making gun confiscations illegal. It has been widely publicized and most LEOs know about, so I doubt it will ever happen. Compared to NO, Texas is very heavily armed, and the guns are in large, heavy safes making confiscation during SHTF very difficult.

    Yep SB112 Emergency Power Act was signed by Gov. Perry almost a year ago to prevent what happened in N.O.
