New law prevents gun confiscation

Here’s an interesting article from Tennessee,

(AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A person who legally possesses a gun would not have it seized during periods of martial rule under a proposal that has been signed into law by the governor.

The measure was signed by Gov. Phil Bredesen on Thursday and takes effect immediately.

One of the more troubling Katrina stories for 2nd amendment advocates dealt with the seizure of firearms in the aftermath of the storm in the greater NOLA area.

Now, we didn’t see anything like that here in Pike County. Of course, the storm damage around here, as bad as it was, didn’t compare to the flooding in NOLA, or the wind/wave damage on the MS Gulf Coast. Still, the new Tennessee law is a good start.
