[waveform |Mayor Nagin's interview]

I'm not a violent person, and I actually support banning all guns, but right now I totally support the idea of exchanging the civilian rescue choppers with fully armed and armored military aircraft. Rescuers get shot at, the shooters get sprayed with a few hundred .50cal minigun rounds. Nobody's going to take on a fucking gunship. This is our homeland, where's our homeland security? This is bullshit, my taxes are going to a bunch of lazy, corrupt fucktards who stand around orange barrels and laugh as they fuck up my daily commute, plundering a more or less helpless nation, but not saving my fellow Americans from lawless thugs?

That would only promote further vigilante violence. The thugs _don't want_ to be rescued, at least not until they've lined their pockets.

That's true, perpective would make civilians panic when they see chainguns unload, no matter the target. Maybe just armored military aircraft that can withstand small arms fire?

I said the same thing yesterday evening. I'd like to see some Cobra Gunships or Apaches out there just hovering around trouble spots.
