NASHVILLE (AP) -- A person who legally possesses a gun would not have it seized during periods of martial rule under a proposal that has been signed into law by the governor.
The measure was signed by Gov. Phil Bredesen on Thursday and takes effect immediately.
Sponsors say martial rule is the same as martial law at the federal level. They say the law is necessary after law enforcement in New Orleans went door to door seizing weapons in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Republican Sen. Jack Johnson of Brentwood, 1 of the sponsors, has said he doesn't expect such behavior in Tenness

The spirit of this law is nice but I can't see how the fed would care. They will do whatever the hell they want to. Has shouting "stop, killing is against the law" ever stopper a murder by a petty thug? How will "stop, confiscating my guns is illegal" work against the federal government?
