I seem to recall a war of some sort that occurred in part due to similar situations.... Something about a Revolution...

Seriously! Does the Constitution not apply in the Virgin Islands???

Remember how the antis claimed Katrina was an "aberration" and it would never happen again?

I remember Senator Adam Kline snidely telling the 591 backers it "wasn't necessary."

:cussing:

What we are doing next
The Gun Safety Action Plan will continue to expand and evolve to ensure that King County is doing everything in power to stop senseless gun violence and make our communities safer. We value you as a partner in this fight and hope you will share your ideas and solutions with us here.
State law restricts our ability to enact many common sense changes that would go a long way toward preventing mass shootings.
Which is why:
It's time to lead or get out of the way
The Washington State Legislature enacted a preemptive ban on local jurisdictions from making laws that might limit the sale or possession of firearms in our state.
If the state preemption law is repealed, the King County Gun Safety Action Plan will immediately:
Ban semi-automatic, high velocity weapons: Ban the sale and possession of semi-automatic, high velocity weapons
Ban high capacity ammunition magazines: Ban the sale and possession of high capacity ammunition magazines

Shouldn't the National Guard have their own supplies rather than stealing from residents?????

"U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed an emergency order allowing the seizure of private guns, ammunition, explosives and property the National Guard may need to respond to Hurricane Irma.

Bet there are a lot of shovels at work as we speak. It would seem the National Guard has better things to do to prep for Irma landfall than go around confiscating firearms & paraphernalia.

From Wikipedia:
A licenese is required to purchase any firearm or ammunition. All firearms must be registered with the Virgin Islands Police Department. The territory currently has a "may issue" policy for concealed carry permits. To obtain one, the applicant must meet a stringent set of requirements, so few people receive permits.

Of course not. They were too busy robbing, raping, and killing to be bothered with registering their guns.

Soooo.....

The islands are getting fuked by Irma and the Government at the same time.

Seems odd to call them the Virgin Islands if they've been in a threesome.

I don't think they have a constitution in the VI yet, do they?
