As Gustav approaches New Orleans, people start preparing for its arrival. Some people leave town, some people barricade in their houses with hopefully a full pantry, and some other people go buy guns. Yes, apparently gun sales are through the roof.
Whether these people are buying guns for their return, or to protect their belongings while riding out the storm, all I can think is of how stupid this is.
I can't say I know what it feels to lose everything, but if this is what it comes down to there is something really wrong.
Anyways, good luck to those in the hurricane path. I hope nothing really bad happens.
