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

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.
