Queens residents arm themselves in the post-storm blackout from looters

When night falls in the Rockaways, the hoods come out.

Ever since Sandy strafed the Queens peninsula and tore up the boardwalk, it’s become an often lawless place where cops are even scarcer than electrical power and food. Locals say they are arming themselves with guns, baseball bats, booby traps — even a bow and arrow — to defend against looters.

Thugs have been masquerading as Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) workers, knocking on doors in the dead of night. But locals say the real workers have been nowhere in sight, causing at least one elected official — who fears a descent into anarchy if help doesn’t arrive soon — to call for the city to investigate the utility.

    Another upsurge in gun purchases, now that the dictator Obama has been reelected. He made his photo op appearance with his secret service protection then went back on the campaign trail.

    Guns and ammo will be the new American currency within the next several months. Once again the American people have shown just how dumbed down this country is. putin, chavez, lil dong jr, xia xiang in china are all laughing at us, salivating at the chance to take America down with their manchurian candidate soiling the oval office, putting together his best plan of REVENGE on the American people while he robs the country blind.
