The gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
It seems that going armed is the way to go, but, will "they" confiscate personal weapons like after Katrina? I say shoot first, then ask questions when ya got the time after securing your home...
Nothin' a few .223 cocktails won't take care of.

Got militia, my ass! Got guns and ammo? First thing on MY property would have been a big spray-painted sign saying, "Looters will be shot!" I don't care about Louisiana - in Florida, I can use deadly force to protect my home and property. Wasn't mush more than 6 years ago when 3 hurricanes came through this area, only a few weeks apart. The area is still recovering, but no one messed much with personal property...there were too many armed citizens around.
TPaine: Agreed, the only thing I remember hearing about was during Charlie when a couple of lowlifes were arrested looting the sacristy at a church on US1, down the road from my folks' place where we holed up. My favorite sign was on a boarded up window at a house down by the river: "2 armed veterans, 3 dogs....your call".
Shoot one & leave "it" in the front yard as an example to others. No sign needed, the body sez it all.B WoodmanIII-per
After Andrew did a number on Homestead, FL, the 82nd Airborne was deployed there to try and settle things down a bit. One of my co-workers asked a 'trooper what the neighborhood should do about looters. The reply was "Do whatever you gotta do, Ma'am. We brought plenty of body bags."I live somewhat north of there, not really in what came to be called "the dead zone", but for six weeks after the storm hit we never saw a cop. They were all down south trying to hold the lid on. South Florida became a magnet for some pretty rough looking folks that came "to help with the cleanup". I did my yard cleanup work with a slung M1A in plain view. Many of the people cruising the neighborhood "offering to help" took one look at me and kept on cruising.
On a side note, it isn't price gouging when the supply fell through the floor and demand skyrocketed. It's the free market.
