New Orleans: A wakeup call: "The lessons learned from New Orleans are: 1. Keep enough food and water to last for a minimum of one month. 2. Keep a lot of flashlights and batteries around along with a couple of portable radios. Keep a well stock first aid kit as well. Keep a portable stove for cooking and boiling water. 3. Own guns and plenty of ammunition. Know how to use them and that includes everyone in your family old enough to handle a firearm. 4. Be prepared to use your firearms in defense of your life and the lives of your family members and neighbors. 5. Share what you can with your neighbors and form a neighborhood security team to keep unwanted people out until government authorities have secured the area. 6. When politicians tell you that only law enforcement and police should own guns in today's 'modern society,' tell them to go to hell ... or New Orleans. There's no difference between either at this point in time."

South Africa: Black gun owners sue for 3 billion: "The South African Black Gunowners Association (Sabga) is suing the government for billions of rands because of gun-licence applications constantly being turned down. They claim 99.9% of all Sabga members' applications for gun licences have been rejected. Sabga chairperson Amos Khoele said on Friday the application had been submitted to Pretoria High Court. 'More than 10,000 of the 20,000 association members have been robbed in the past year. 'Many were wounded and some were even murdered. They are not allowed to use their weapons in self-defence as applications for renewal of their licences are rejected en masse.'"
