8.27.15: Ten Years after the New Orleans Gun Grab - This Week on GUNTALK Radio
Mandeville, LA - Reflecting on the ten years since the Hurricane Katrina gun grab, a lawsuit first, a month of giveaways, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's GUNTALK® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Firearms Instructor Gordon Hutchinson is also the author of The Great New Orleans Gun Grab, the story of the days and weeks following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and the people who were left defenseless. He visits GUNTALK this week to discuss what happened then, and why it can still happen now. Find out more at http://gordonhutchinson.com.
Another expert on gun grabs stopping by this Sunday is Attorney Joshua Dale, from Californian firm Michel and Associates. Dale is the lead attorney working a case that involves Wayne Wright, who was "targeted by the LAPD Gun Unit, for being a "gun trafficker" on seemingly trumped up charges, and so they confiscated his expensive curio & relic gun collection. When he was legally cleared to retrieve his collection, the Los Angeles Police Department denied him, by placing illegal conditions on the return of his property." The complaint also alleges RICO violations. Find out more http://gunalizer.com/lapd-sued-for-illegally-destroying-700k-firearm-collection/
Alan Gottlieb, of the Second Amendment Foundation, drops by with big news on a lawsuit first - a lawsuit filed by the Second Amendment Foundation, the NRA, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation together. According to SAF, "the nation's three leading firearms organizations joined forces today to sue the City of Seattle over adoption of a retail sales tax on guns and ammunition in what they allege is a clear violation of Washington State's 33-year-old state preemption law that does not allow cities, counties or political subdivisions to enact laws relating to firearms not authorized by state law."
