The Second Amendment died in New Orleans

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
In the aftermath of the tragedy of hurricane Katrina, the 2nd amendment was thrown out by law enforcement (NOPD) and the Louisiana National Guard. These two groups went door to door confiscating guns legally belonging to law biding residents. This was the first time in the history of the United States of America where the police and the military forcibly removed weapons from citizens sitting at home protecting their families and their property. The fa├žade of a representative democracy was exposed during this horrific event. A clear violation of the 2nd amendment, and not a word of protest from those responsible for enforcing our laws.
Members of the military have a constitutional obligation to refuse orders from superiors which are in clear violation of the constitution as this event was. But how can the members of the Louisiana Guard be responsible? Because they most likely have never been taught the constitution while attending school. Thanks to political correctness and the disorder of liberalism, the constitution is no longer taught in many American schools. So we can excuse those Guardsmen for not know they were in violation of the 2nd amendment and had an obligation to refuse such orders. Time to sharpen our pitchforks America and vote every current office holder out of office.
