New Orleans Settles; Judge Signs Permanent Injunction

After a year of stonewalling, the city of New Orleans has admitted it illegally confiscated firearms from residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

How the city could have argued otherwise still boggles the mind. But city leaders there did just that, wasting precious financial resources in a court case they were destined to lose because of their blatantly illegal and unconstitutional actions.

Today, the city agreed to settle a case brought against it on behalf of residents there. The suit was filed by the National Rifle Association. Further, the judge signed a permanent injunction against the city, and Mayor Ray Nagin.
