    Awesome. I wish it were easier to get a carry permit here in NY.

    I've heard of planned communities that required residents to own guns, but not existing towns. I bet their crime rate is LOW.

      I didn't realize the looming threat that refugees presented to the Pacific Northwest.

          Kennesaw, GA has had a law requiring heads of households to own a gun and ammunition for over 20 years now.

            Ordinance 208, passed by the City Council on Tuesday, asks Greenleaf's 862 residents who do not object on religious or other grounds to keep a gun at home in case they are overrun by refugees from disasters like Katrina.
            They are more frightened of brown people than they are of natural disaster.

              Nothing like an ordinance that makes you do something... unless you object to, in which case you don't have to (and there's no penalty for failing to do that something).

              Can't I do that already without the help of elected officials?

                Yeah, great point, Steeler. We'd better send Jesse Jackson in there ASAP to stop all the lynchings.

                    Please. It's absolutely about skin color, and the perception that the African-Americans displaced by Katrina are more prone to crime and violence than the nice white people of Idaho.

                      Whatever.

                      Maybe I'm too naive, but I don't believe that skin color has to be involved in every discussion about Katrina refugees.

                      Crime statistics in Houston show that, regardless of color, crime has skyrocketed since Houston gave so much to the people of New Orleans. The sad thing is that if another Katrina were to hit today, I don't think they would be quite so quick to be so giving...

                        This is the kind of crap that's keeping racism alive in this country. Of all the people looting, raping, and killing after Katrina, it takes true racism to focus only on blacks. :(

                          The "looting, raping and killing" was widely overblown in the media and repeated ad nauseam by racist a-holes who liked the stories because they reinforced their previous prejudices. Some illegalities did happen, but the paranoid and hateful response of outsiders to imagined threats was greater than the actual problems. And the face of those problems on TV and the ensuing hoopla was almost exclusively black.

                          From the rest of the comments in the article about people from Boise coming in a causing trouble, you can tell that Greenleaf's town council is a pretty fearful, insular set. Is it really a logical fear to be worried that a major natural disaster is going to flood their town with criminal refugees? No. But they are worried about "undesirables."

                          What's keeping racism alive in this country is racism itself. Just because you yourself are not racist does not mean that people are not exposed to it every single day. Not talking about it doesn't help anyone except those who continue to be racist.

                            if i remember correctly a larger percentage of non-blacks where displaced and moved in Katrina. Problem with houston is that these refugees where moved there with no real idea of how long they would have to be there. Many are welcome to return to their homes if they want, its just they dont want to because of all the free aid and money they where getting, and still are.


                            Back on topic...id dont see any issues with having an ordiance like this. Maybe more places will folllow suit
                            that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                              "Knight Ridder’s wire service (10/2/05) debunked the seminal stories of sniping at rescue vehicles, reporting that “more than a month later, representatives from the Air Force, Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security and Louisiana Air National Guard say they have yet to confirm a single incident of gunfire at helicopters.”

                              Sadly, the facts won't matter to alot Americans when they remember Katrina.
