Ms. Harris said she did not want to leave. "I haven’t even run out of weed yet," she said. [Source, Reason, High Ground in New Orleans Note: The New York Times article does not reference weed. Perhaps this was a little creative writing on Jacob Sullum‘s part.]
Frankly I’m appauled that they are confiscating weapons from people that have the legal right to bear those arms. I also recognize with what ease the military could eliminate these people.
"oh, we found his body in the backyard. Looks like a looter shot him."
