New Hampshire's wep-seizure-prevention-bill-become-law went into effect last month.
On a related note I got one of the Fed Marshalls on the phone who was in New Orleans, but based here in NH. His name is Gary Dimartino, although I may have the spelling wrong. He is a supervisor. Asked him about the wep seizures and specifically the article below.
I told him that I appreciated his return of my phone call and that I knew there were probably many good things that he had done over the last months which I know nothing about, and that I realize there is some unfairness in the fact that I only call to complain, but that I appreciate whatever good he may have done.
I told him I felt New Orleans was an example of a bad thing, and he got kind of excited and said "we did a lot of good things there," he said there might be other things the weren't good but NO was not one of them. I went a week without sleep, he said. I told him I believed him, but that mixed in with the good was some bad stuff. I mentioned to him the sept. 8 2005 washington post article at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/08/AR2005090802089.html
regarding a bar owner in the dry part of NO who had prepared well and had a generator, and an open bar:
"But on Wednesday night, Guidos said, armed federal agents identifying themselves as U.S. marshals confiscated her weapons and ordered her and six friends to leave by noon Thursday.
'When you get 15 M-16s pointed at you and they line you up against the wall, it's kind of scary,' said Guidos, 55."
He denied knowledge of this. I asked him to do whatever was in his power to keep this kind of thing from happening twice.
