Queens Residents Use Bows and Arrows to Defend Homes in Post-Sandy Nightmare

In a very disturbing article from the Daily News, we discover that residents in the Queens neighborhood of the Rockaways are using anything they can get their hands on to protect their homes after Sandy devastated their area, including bows and arrows.  From the Daily News:

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.

“After sunset everyone locks their doors,” said Meyer, as he loaded up a solar panel from a factory in the Brooklyn Navy Yard to bring to local residents. “They’re trying to find whatever weapons they can find. Some people are even using bows and arrows.”

Further east in the Rockaways, hunger stalked the community as angry residents lined up for food deliveries and complained they were being abandoned.

Good Samaritans had set up makeshift food throughout the peninsula Friday, grilling food and passing out water, while the Red Cross and FEMA was nowhere in sight.

Aren’t you glad we have spent all of our money bailing out banker criminals and implementing a police state to fight the phony “war on terror.”  Meanwhile, nothing is left over for our own people.  Sad.

  1. Prepare as though the cavalry won’t be coming and you’ll be on your own……because you probably will!

  2. The only way an outer borough resident will see a cop in front of his house right now is if he’s being foreclosed upon.

  3. This just shows how close we are to the edge and utter anarchy, the state always wants us to believe that they are completely in control, but the reality is that this can only work if people play ball, if people suddenly decide not to play along, for whatever reason, such as after Katherina in New Orleans, or now in New York or even in London in August 2011 where mobs ran riot all over London and elsewhere in the UK, then society is helpless, simply because the veneer of civilization is very, very thin, and due to the growing gap between rich and poor, it is getting thinner!

  4. Actually, something like a Caribou hunting bow is an excellent defensive weapon. It has an advantage over firearms especially in low light conditions, It’s much harder for assailants to pin point where the attack is coming from and it’s more likely to cause armed looters to flee because they are being hit with something lethal they are not familiar with.

  5. i’ve never seen any Japanese getting around with bows and arrows after natural disasters… i reckon it’s because the they are missing out on the wonders of cultural diversity. I feel sorry for them.

  6. Really, Caribou hunting bow is an excellent defensive weapon.

  7. At least Obama and Christie got a photo-op out of it….

  8. With the exception of those whose homes have been totally destroyed (and there are very few such folks), people need to stop acting like infants and expecting the government, or someone else, to take care of them.

    We knew the storm was coming for A WEEK!!! How much time do you need to prepare?

  9. If conditions were so bad and no government agencies were there providing supplies, assistance, then why the f#@& did so GD many of youse vote for the loser Obama?!
