Frustrated by the continued failure of New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and
Police Superintendent Warren Riley to comply with a federal injunction
issued last September to halt illegal gun confiscations following
Hurricane Katrina and return all seized firearms to their owners, the
Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association have filed a
motion in federal court to have both Nagin and Riley held in contempt.
The story pretty much says it all. The City of New Orleans is pretending that the NRA and SAF lawsuits concerning gun seizures will simply go away if they hide their head in the sand long enough and stonewall by refusing to admit that any firearms were seized. What they appear to have forgotten is that we have video of the policy announcement and at least two seizures. This is not going to go away.
