U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed an emergency order allowing the seizure of private guns, ammunition, explosives and property the National Guard may need to respond to Hurricane Irma. .. ..

.. ..

Mapp signed the order Monday in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The order allows the Adjutant General of the Virgin Islands to seize private property they believe necessary to protect the islands, subject to approval by the territory’s Justice Department.

How is taking of guns and ammo going to make the hurricane behave? Where in hell do these people come from with their screwed up logic?

Illegal search and seizure, emergency or not. What is to keep them from quartering troops as well...?

I'm curious what the justice department attorneys say on this one.

We have a state law here that prevents this and I thought there was a federal law enacted after Katrina that also prevents this stupidity....

Looked at the gun laws there, think the worst of Illinois and California all rolled into one. They all ready know who has them and how much ammo they have.

Will serve as a precedent when debating antigunners.

It is only the good guys guns that will be siezed, as bad guys won't have followed the laws to register.

USVI has the highest murder rate in America (along with super strict gun laws). Now they suspect things will get so bad during the storm that the National Guard will run out of guns and ammo? Not a time I would want to be unarmed.

How many rounds do you need to shoot at a hurricane to slow it down? What caliber?
