"According to Cedric Glover, Mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana, his cops 'have a power that the President of these United States does not have.' Mayor Glover claimed his police officers had the power to take away certain rights.


And would you like to guess which rights he had in mind?" ( happened in June, '09)

Didn't this happen a long time ago?

As far as I can tell the NAGR is using a three year old incident to get people to sign a petition that is totally unrelated to the three year old incident.

"Recently, the National Association for Gun Rights was the first to break the incredible story of the suspension of a man's Second Amendment rights in Shreveport, Louisiana."

Jun 2009 is hardly "recently".

Yep. It happened in 2009. And the mayor was re-elected in 2010.

F'em. You can't take other people's lives or rights more seriously than they do.

Louisiana, they go by their own rules and they like to bend (break) a lot of constitution rules. Remember during Katrina they were confiscating guns just because?

And that Mayor got re-elected as well.

Except for one neighborhood that got forewarned in time. Turns out about 75% of the homeowners had rifles ranging from .308 Win to .50 BMG. When the jack-boots with their M-16's arrived, they found themselves faced with a whole lot of firepower pointed right back at them. The residents issued a warning to go away and leave them alone. The jack-boots did just that. Unfortunately, they then went to other places that either hadn't been forewarned or didn't have enough armed residents to provide similar "dissuasion".

And that, folks, is a textbook example of what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment.

Ah, Louisiana. One of those so-called "free states."

During Katrina, NOLA Mayor Ray "School Bus" Nagin, ordered all firearms found in private hands to be confiscated. There was no law that said he couldn't and his emergency powers were very broad. Much later, his actions did not pass constitutional muster in the United States District Court. Since that time Louisiana law has been changed to prevent such a thing from happening again in a similar circumstance. California adopted a nearly identical law and there is also a federal statute, signed by President Bush before he left office in 2008.

In the case of Mr. Baillio's stop as I read the linked documentation his gun was returned when the stop was concluded, so his right was, per se not necessarily infringed. If Louisiana has a law similar to our hated (e) check, the officer's action would probably be considered reasonable in that circumstance.

OTOH, Mayor Glover's remarks at the time were both stupid and self serving, but I'd expect no better from a political hack in a state that is as politically corrupt as Louisiana is.

This is, I think, another case of smoke but no fire and it probably needs to be moved on from.

Louisiana, they go by their own rules ...

They do indeed. It's the only state in the country whose legal system isn't based on English common law.
