In the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina in New Orleans — when about a third of the NOLA police force walked off the job and those who remained were
captured on video looting right alongside the thieving street trash — Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco and NOLA mayor Ray Nagin called for
and received National Guard assistance in patrolling the urban disaster area.
Interestingly, Guardsmen from Oklahoma were deployed in New Orleans, along with a few U.S. Marshals and the NOLA police department. We can assume
that this was because Blanco and Nagin and the Federal Government didn't want Louisiana Guardsmen performing a very disagreeable task in their
home state — namely, confiscating firearms from law-abiding citizens.
There are videos on YouTube and elsewhere that document the National Guard, with weapons drawn, entering civilian homes (sometimes forcibly), holding
New Orleans residents at gunpoint, and searching the homes for firearms, which were immediately confiscated.
Some Guardsmen were visibly appalled that this was happening in America, even under Louisiana's "state of emergency" (which is the equivalent of
martial law in Louisiana); yet, the Guardsmen followed orders and disarmed law-abiding citizens.
As far as I know, this unconstitutional activity has yet to be addressed by the U.S. Justice Department, although it outraged New Orleans
citizenry and gun-owner rights activists across the country.
I have no doubt that the Congressional call for National Guardsmen in Chicago will yield more such unconstitutional firearms confiscations;
however, we must not forget that Chicago IS the home turf of some of the most detestable and corrupt politicians in U.S. government (including
Barack Hussein Obama), so it's not really a surprise that these crooks would use Chicago as a staging ground for their planned national gun
confiscations in the near future.
Deploying the Guard under the guise of "assisting Chicago police" is so transparent a ruse as to be laughable, if the implications weren't so
