Now something that *is* true is the effect of a declared mandatory evacuation: allow law-abiding citizens without conce........ms during declared mandatory evacuations

From 2015: "Now law is a measure to allow law-abiding citizens without concealed carry licenses to bear arms during declared mandatory evacuations."

Sure thing. I wondered where legally-carrying Texans were sheltering when the news coverage showed the shelter with a running sign that said "No Weapons"

I wonder where they put their guns, considering no self-respecting Texan would take his family into potential danger without a sidearm.

Were they expected to dump them in the trash outside so they could get into the shelter?

In PA, the OPPOSITE happens during a State of Emergency. Open Carry/Constitutional Carry is SUSPENDED [emoticon]

It's a shame families fleeing catastrophes have to be burdened with legal landmines. I hope the link might help someone avoid them [emoticon]

Don't know about the airlines, but Scott did not "order" the motels/hotels to accept pets. He asked them to waive pet rules/fees for evacuation.

Rockhillmanor is correct. States, and probably the federal govt as well, have laws on the books against price gouging in times of declared emergencies. I'm assuming there are other laws on the books that kick in during emergencies that most of us are not aware of. Curfews comes to mind as one of them.

Who pays the cleaning fees for all the hotel carpets that get peed, pooped and shed on?

I love my dog but as a private business owner, I'd not be pleased with the additional maintenance involved. Many, many people are inconsiderate slobs and wouldn't hesitate to leave a mess for hotel staff.

...heck, while most owners are responsible, how many slobs leave poop at the park or while walking their dog, and refuse to pick it up?

Millions evacuated.
Thousands loose their house.
Hundreds risk their lives helping others.

A few motel owners will have to steam clean the carpets.
How upsetting.

Stated on the news here yesterday that Delta was charging $399 for flights out of Fla. and Jet Blue was $99.00.
I think this is just a false post. Ive seen or found nothing to back up any of it.


That was the charge for all the "full" flights. In a prior life, I owned a service station. When the gas shortage hit, and we ran out of gas, we lowered the price to 1 cent a gallon. When you are out, you can charge as little as you want. [emoticon]
My point was what Delta was charging. Not surprised you didn't get it.
