American Civil Liberties Union Filing Suit Against New Orleans

And you’re not going to believe this but it’s for a good cause…

From the article…

A New Orleans man is suing the city and its district attorney for refusing to give back a gun that police seized when he was arrested on drug and firearms charges.

The American Civil Liberties Union on Thursday filed the federal suit on behalf of Errol Houston Jr., who was arrested last year following a traffic stop.

The suit says the district attorney’s office declined to prosecute Houston but has refused to return his .40 caliber firearm.

So they confiscated Mr. Houston’s gun when he was arrested. But the police then didn’t charge him but refused to give his gun back. I guess this is the same thing we can expect from a city who seized every citizens’ guns during Hurricane Katrina because people might defend themselves.
