Default Gun Confiscation During Disaster

Nope! No way. That's when a person could actually need them the most.

A gun confiscation attempt at my home would be the scariest day of lots of people's lives.

TBH, the worst part of that order is "... and any other property..."

Agreed and my statement goes for property as well. Anyone who draws that duty is on a suicide mission. I sincerely feel sorry for them.

Direct violation of the 5th amendment...in 2006, moreover, President George W. Bush signed into law the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, which contained an NRA-backed amendment sponsored by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.). The amendment prohibits persons acting under color of federal law, receiving federal funds, or acting at the direction of a federal employee from seizing or authorizing the seizure of lawfully-possessed firearms or imposing or enforcing certain restrictions on firearms during a state of emergency.

Nicely done. The next question is, why is the Governor of V.I. still in office? A direct violation of the U.S. Constitution is the surest grounds for impeachment.

Has anyone checked this for accuracy? To see if the governor really gave this order? Because it's blatantly against the law to confiscate weapons as noted above. This seems like one of those internet scare tactics that get started anytime there is a major event and has no truth behind it

Seems far fetched to me also, but the NRA has bought in. They are the only "reputable" source reporting this. Then again, used reputable in air quotes, because the narrative fits their agenda as though it was tailor made for it

Im not sure what laws apply in unincorporated territory of the US.

I sure wouldn't stand for it here in the United States.

Yes it is accurate and you can do your own research.
What is funny (not literally) is that a law to protect the 2nd A is written and is supposed to carry any weight when the 2nd A is being ignored all together.

I don't follow the logic that a law can protect a Constitutional amendment.
