    You generally can't legally buy an AK-47 in the United States.

    Yeah I think they are. AK's used for hunting? Not here. 4 shot capability at the max iirc. Yeah they make short mags but still I'll take my 30-30 over an AK any day of the week for derr hunting in FL. Up north (Colorado, Montana, etc) I'll take a .300 Win mag any day of the week. Hunted in Alaska with a 375 H&H Mag. AR and AK are for boobs hunting wise. They sure are fun to shoot though and if it came to self-defense or a fight against a tyrannical gov, I'll take 30 rounds a mag over 3.

    "The Adjutant General is authorized and directed to seize arms, ammunition, explosives, incendiary material and any other property that may be required by the military forces for the performance of this emergency mission," the governor said in the order.
    Are they taking peoples' guns and shit because they don't have enough of their own or something?

    "I know we're the military and all, but we're a little short on supplies. Like guns. And ammo. And stuff. Can we use yours?"

    National Guards usually have the lower end of gear, behind active, and reserves... Especially being that USVI aren't even a state, they might be even further down, but I'd assume there are enough rifles to go around, maybe not super awesome M4s and stuff, but M16A1s and A2s can't be that scarce.

    So what is the motivation of seizing guns then?

    Are the citizens of the USVI not protected by the US Constitution at all?

    They are, but apparently things can be suspended during emergencies. They have their stated reason for seizing them, but I don't personally buy it. I'm hoping we'll have a story where the seized weapons are returned.
