There were no responders in our neighborhood, first or second. We were on our own. The Chief of Police knew me (he was originally from my home town in another state), and my neighbors knew me. I carried a shotgun but I did not brandish it. It was carried on sling, stowed but ready for use. My neighbors were pleased to see me out there and did not feel threatened by my presence. There was no looting in my neighborhood. Other neighborhoods did have incidents. I agree that there are many places, mostly larger cities, where people panic at the sight of any gun. That place, and where I live now, are not like that though. What works in one place might not work in another. As always, use some discretion and common sense. Oh, and Katrina? The cops were shooting unarmed people who couldn't defend themselves against their attackers.
