Lock and Load And Get Ready!

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty . . . And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? 

Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. 

It is its natural manure."

Thomas Jefferson

Wow… The American People are unhappy…Just look below.

I've been saying for a while that there is "something" in the air and the American People are getting to a point at which they will not take any more of the "crap" that coming there way. 

Check this latest Gallup poll.  As you can see from the numbers, it is the lowest rating ever!

What we are seeing is now is the fact that people are beginning to speak up about how disconnected the Congress, the Senate and even the current President has become from the American republic.

When will those in leadership realize that if this continues to trend like this, the quote above from Thomas Jefferson could become a real reality???

As I have told you before... The DHS is preparing for it. As should you!

Today were going to continue our preparedness series by talking about probably one of the more controversial topics of our "Beans, Bullets and Band-aid" series....

Today we talk about guns...!  

I will lay the following disclaimer.  If you're not open minded to the possibility of owning a gun.  

Stop reading now.  

I'm not going to get in a debate with you about wether guns are good or bad and why you should or should not own them.  This blog is to help people prepare for what is coming to America.  Not to create a debate with tree hugging, PETA joining, agenda 21, nato loving hippies. 

I will not to debate with you the ethical issues of why guns are good or bad.  

Ok... now on to the rest of the post. 

Guns are probably one of the most contested points of the preparedness society and among all the research I have done so far.

There are really two thoughts about guns and preparedness.  The first one is;

"You can never have too many guns."

Take a look at this picture.  Do you know someone like this?  Are you this person?

Everybody knows someone who they would consider a "gun nut".

He is that guy that you are all secretly afraid of because he speaks his mind, has a gun in every room of his house and carries two on him at all times... even when he sleeps, but you know that when "The Event" happens you will be the first on on his door step asking for help.

These are the people that the ATF, the CIA, FBI and every other three letter acronym based organization that is paid for with fiat money watch constantly.

Are they right to own this many guns?  What makes their philosophy correct? If not, what makes it wrong?

I don't want to condemn or judge them.  Remember, the constitution gives them the right to bear arms and protect themselves and loved ones, it says nothing about how many they are allowed to have or when they are or are not allowed to carry them.

Our Government has tried on multiple occasions to limit what we can buy in the name of protecting us from ourselves.  That is not their job.  The Governments job is to protect liberty and freedom, and not to tell me I can't own a fully automatic rifle with a 50 round clip.

That is my business not theirs, what I do with my money and my guns is my business.

Here is the second school of thought;

"I'll just keep a .22 around and that will be enough for us."

These people are the minimalist who hopes they never have to kill anything and truly believe that things will never go wrong.

They have quite possibly never fired a gun, let alone got it out and become familiar with how it works and loads.

But is their philosophy correct?  If so, what makes is wrong? You have to decide for yourself.

Now I have laid out the two opposing views lets break it down on what it should probably look like.

Guns have two functions.  To protect and to provide.

They are designed to be used to hunt, and kill other humans. Do I believe in owning guns?

Absolutely, I carry one everyday and I fully believe in the 2nd Amendment right to carry, own and use a gun.

Remember what I have said before... "From my cold dead hand!" Charlton Heston said it, and I stand by it!

"Jay...what is the right amount of guns to own... and what type?" 

I don't have the exact answer for that. But I will offer my own opinions on it, and you can use your own best judgement and your own free "Liberty" to decide.

Well... to start, you have to divide owning a gun into two different categories, Home / Personal Defense and Hunting.

Lets start with the most controversial topic; Home / Personal Defense.

Notice that I bolded the word Defense.  At no time will I endorse using your fire arm to ever purposefully hurt someone for a purpose. Gun violence must never, never be a first resort to solve problems.  

Words should always be a first resort unless someone is working to harm you or the ones you love. 

Moving on...

I personally carry a 9mm every day.

I like mine, it is a solid gun and it conceals well.

Some folks would carry a .45 or even a small .22 for their personal defense.  The 9mm shoots straight and will stop just about anybody who is going to attempt to hurt you and will protect those you love.

Get a concealed weapons permit if your state allows it.

Heck, open carry if you feel brave enough.  Just a warning though, it will make people extremely nervous, but again it is your constitutional right.

If you want to get a permit, you can do your research here.

But when it comes to owning a pistol you have to ask yourself, "Why would I carry a gun? Would I use it? If yes, can I accept the consequences of potentially taking a life?"

Those are some pretty tough questions.

I would say that my opinion on those questions are pretty straight forward.

"Why would I carry a gun?"  - To protect myself and those I love against those who don't live within the rule of law. Think about Aurora, Colorado not a gun in the place. If there had been, would more people be alive today? Probably!

"Would I use it?" - Absolutely.  See above.

"Can I accept the consequences of taking a life?" - Yes... It will be tough.  They are one of God's children too, but if I am protecting myself and not working to murder someone I can accept that.

So now that those questions are answered.  I have another one for you?  Would you carry a bigger gun, say an AR-15 or AK-47?

Why or why not?

I want you to reference back to my post, "Without the Rule of Law".  Remember why that person broke my window?  Let's go a bit deeper with this idea hypothetically;

What do you think would happen if tomorrow if the grocery stores were empty, the fuel was gone and you were the only person left in your neighborhood who had fuel and food?  People would do more than just break your window!

Have you even on a summer evening smelled cooking meat on a BBQ?  Did your stomach rumble?

Now imagine your kids haven't eaten in a week and you knew that someone had food, what would you do?

Would you kill to feed them?  Would you maime someone to provide a meal?  Guess what, so would they.

Would you be a target for roaming gangs of people looking to raid?  Yes... you would!  But they might be a bit more deterred if they saw you with above mentioned guns your hand.

Yes... they are intimidating and can hold 30 rounds compared to your 8 - 10 round hand gun.

That is why a "Home Defense" style rifle is a must.

You're not going to use it to go to war or commit some type of crime.  You are going to use if for defense from those who would not even blink.  People will resort to anything to get their food. 

Check out the picture on the right, why am I showing zombies?

Think of the last time you went without food.

What did you feel like?  Were you tired, angry sometimes and "zoned out" possibly?

Now imagine thousands of people who are like that... only they haven't eaten in weeks.   There you go... you now have hords of zombies.

Remember my post containing the story of Leningrad?  Remember the nasty "meat jelly" that I talked about...?  How about the small children disappearing when the neighbors were hungary, or the body parts that disappeared from the hospital morgues?  Forgotten about that?  Still to old of an example for you?

Here is more recent historial video ... how about Haiti?  They experienced their own version of "The Event" and look what people resorted to do to get food.  They are still suffering today.

That is why a you need to make sure that you can defend yourself from the masses.

Geez... you think so loud... I can hear you now... "Jay... your just paranoid!"

No... I'm not... I'm practical.

I don't live in fear.  I live in practicality. I don't want my family to have to fight for their food. I don't want my kids to have to starve and have distended bellies.  I don't want to look in their little eyes an tell them I didn't prepare ahead! I had a more important thing than them!

I am awake and I live with the knowledge that "The Event" is real, and that it is coming soon to America. I love my family, and my country.  But I don't trust those would not even blink to kill my family to get what they need. If you think I'm wrong, read this.

Just cowboy / cowgirl up and get a "home defense" rifle and 1000 rounds of ammo.  Simple enough.

Let's move on to hunting rifles.  Anything bigger than a .270 will do the trick.  Get to the range and shoot it too.  Get 1000 rounds for it.

A shotgun is also a must as well.  It's mighty hard to hit a duck with a single shot from a rifle and still have some of the Duck / Goose / Pheasant / Chucker left to eat when the bullet passes through.   Get one and 500 rounds for it.

Shotguns are also a great home defense weapon too.  I can tell you from experience that nothing scare the pants out of people like the sound of a racking shotgun or the charging of an assault rifle.

People know what sound follows that of a loading gun, and they would probably prefer not to be on the receiving end of that sound.

Your family is truly the most important thing to you on this earth.  When nothing else is left, all you have is them.  Don't forget that.  Even when you don't agree with them, you still love them.  Protect them at all costs.  It is your right!

Don't be a victim, don't be stupid either.  Use guns safely and they will do exactly what they were designed for;

To protect and provide.

Be ready... The Event continues it's approach!

Until next time....
