Armed Thieves Push New Orleans Deeper into Chaos

The New Orleans chief of Homeland Security is reporting that roving bands of thieves are breaking into gun stores and engaging in gun battles with police, who have been ordered to suspend rescue operations to bring order to the streets.
One particular nursing home was well prepared before the hurricane and was coping with power outages and had enough food for days, but looters appear to be casing the facility and have already carjacked the facility’s bus.

"We had enough food for 10 days," said Peggy Hoffman, the home's executive director. "Now we'll have to equip our department heads with guns and teach them how to shoot."

Seems like a bad time to JUST be learning how to defend yourself. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to begin digging a well.
