I was recently emailed the question,
I am working on a paper which is based around EMP attack probabilities, and what to do if one were to occur. What would you suggest to do in such a situation for someone who is not a prepper? Also, for the prepper, what would you suggest they stock up on in this scenario?
Here’s my response:
As I drove from east to west today across the state of New Mexico on our current trip, Mrs.J and I were talking. One of the subjects had to do with the political and ideological division in this country, and how there are incredible and powerful efforts underway to undermine the nationalist movement within the United States.
Reported yesterday, North Korea issues SHOCK war warning: ‘If a single bullet is fired, we WILL nuke the US’
“NORTH Korea has pledged to launch a nuclear strike on the US if a “single bullet is fired” as US forces flood the Korean Peninsula.” (dailystar.co.uk)
Many media outlets are reporting on the most recent (crazy) developments from North Korea as they launch yet another ballistic missile test.
Kim Jong-un’s rogue state is bringing us ever closer to intervention and unknown fallout from what may come. The question is, if there is intervention, what will China do, or any of the rest?
I recently received an email from the “American Redoubt” outlining the possible and perhaps likely scenario that would take place following a Trump assassination.
I have thought about the potential horrible consequences myself, particularly given some of the vocal left (many within Hollywood and the music industry) who are actually publicly calling for his assassination (why are they not being prosecuted?!).
While I do believe that we are currently in Civil War II, it is my opinion that if such a terrible event (Trump assassination) were to occur, that it may indeed ignite a hot Civil War II.
(WHICH IS NOT WHAT YOU OR I WANT TO FACE!)
(SO HOW DO WE STOP IT?)
Here’s what I mean…
This weekly post is an open-forum (any topic) to voice your thoughts, opinions, or questions for others. Lets hear about what you’ve been doing this week for preparedness, or perhaps what you have done to convert your ‘fiat’ (paper) currency into tangible assets 😉
The more who comment, the more that’s spread around for the benefit of all…
Note: We appreciate that you stay on-topic with your article comments during the week. However for any ‘off topic’ comments, use this most recent Saturday open-forum article,
‘What did you do for your preparedness this week?’
Note: Read the most recent (150) comments (from all articles) on the ‘Discussion’ page.
The following information regarding transporting firearms across state lines was obtained from the NRA-ILA, and I thought that some of you might find it beneficial to know…
CAUTION: Federal and state firearms laws are subject to frequent change. This summary is not to be considered as legal advice or a restatement of law. To determine the applicability of these laws to specific situations which you may encounter, you are strongly urged to consult a local attorney.
Federal law does not restrict individuals from transporting legally acquired firearms across state lines for lawful purposes except those explicitly prohibited by federal law to include convicted felons; persons under indictment for felonies; adjudicated “mental defectives” or those who have been involuntarily committed to mental institutions; illegal drug users; illegal aliens and most non-immigrant aliens; dishonorably discharged veterans; those who have renounced their U.S. citizenship; fugitives from justice; persons convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence; and persons subject to certain domestic violence restraining orders. Therefore, no federal permit is required (or available) for the interstate transportation of firearms.
Many states and localities have laws governing the transportation of firearms. Travelers must be aware of these laws and comply with legal requirements in each jurisdiction. There is no uniform state transportation procedure for firearms. If in doubt, a traveler should carry firearms unloaded, locked in a case, and stored in an area (such as a trunk or attached toolbox) where they are inaccessible from a vehicle’s passenger compartment and not visible from outside the vehicle. Any ammunition should be stored in a separate locked container. Title 18 Part 1 Chapter 44 s926A
Note: I own the following book, and have found it to be extremely useful while traveling from state to state with a firearm. Each state is covered separately to inform you of their firearm laws. Lists of current reciprocity between states are also helpful. The book is updated each year with any changes to law that may apply.

Here’s more regarding federal law that protects you while traveling across state lines:
Today I had the pleasure of meeting Bob (and his family and working crew) over at Ready Made Resources (ReadyMadeResources.com) located in the hills of eastern Tennessee.
Ready Made Resources has been a long time advertiser and sponsor of ModernSurvivalBlog.com and it was great to get together…
It is always a great feeling when able to speak with others who are on the same page, so to speak, and I felt like Bob could have been a brother – being evidently very like minded with seemingly identical opinions of the world we live in and where we are seemingly headed…
