"Hutchinson and Masson have nailed it. 'The Great New Orleans Gun Grab' is a blistering indictment of everything that went wrong before, during and especially after the hurricane. It's all here, the incompetence, misconduct and abuse of authority; everything that should make American citizens shudder." --Dave Workman
"An infuriating, fascinating and terrifying tale of good citizens victimized by criminal gangs and a criminal local government. After you read this book, you will know the deadly danger of believing, 'It can't happen here.'" --David B. Kopel
"A compelling story that needs to be told so Americans never forget. This book exposes the abuse of authority and the order to go door to door, confiscating firearms from law-abiding citizens at a time when they needed them most. ... A human drama of what will happen if we let it." --Ginny Simone

I read this book with quite a bit of trepidation. I bought it in part to be able to loan to the many ignorant fools who profess that gun confiscation won't happen in America. Read morePublished 16 months ago by R. Clements
