Disorder on the Gulf Coast

If you don't have a clear enough picture of the horrors in New Orleans, see this NO Times-Picayune post, with reports of gang rapes of young girls.

Or see CNN's report on looters taking potshots at contractors rebuilding the levees.

My brother just returned from delivering water and supplies to friends in Mississippi, and tells me that everyone has armed themselves to protect their belongings.

It's unbelievable that this is happening in America. Some argue that this disorder is proof positive of the virtue of the second amendment. I'd be interested in seeing data when this is all over that give us guidance as to whether an armed society is a polite society, as the NRA saying goes, or if it's really just a more dangerous society.
