SHTF Social Collapse And The Pitfall Of Being A Pacifist

June 17, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

pacifist

The root belief and assumption of the pacifist includes this: Most everyone is ‘good’, and ‘human nature’ at its core is generally all-embracing and positive. A pacifist rejects violence in any shape or form.

While I have no issue with the pacifist (people are who they are), I do have some thoughts on the pitfall of being a pacifist if and when SHTF leads to social chaos and collapse…

State Rank List – Percentage Of Preppers Per Population

June 16, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

prepper-percentage-per-state

Have you ever wondered which states have the highest percentage of preppers?
(those who are preparedness-minded)?

Have you ever wondered where your own state ranks within the 50 states of the United States?

Have you ever wondered which state has the least preppers per population?

Having recently run a poll asking our readers to let us know which state they live in, I have drawn some VERY INTERESTING conclusions, and you might be surprised at what you see…
(or maybe not 😉 )

What Are The Best Work Boots?

June 15, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

best-boots

It is absolutely essential that you have at least a pair of good work boots or ‘hiking’ boots as part of your overall preparedness. Why? Because the best boots are those which will hold up under the stress of hard use and will stand the test of time. It’s important.

I cannot emphasize enough the fact that there are some things that are worth spending the extra money on, and good boots are one of them.

Note: If you’re not able to shell out the bucks for the best boots, just make sure that you have a decent pair of what you can afford.

Here’s more about why you need them, and a few specific choices:

The Gun Grabbers Do Not Know That Automatic Weapons Are Already Banned…

June 14, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

gun-grabbers
Here we go again…

 
The ‘gun grabbers’ are predictably at it again, given the ‘opportunity’ presented to them following a shooting. Their most despised firearm, the AR-15, is yet again in their targets. Evidently though, they are quite confused about this particular gun (which happens to be the most popular style firearm in the United States).

They are calling it an ‘automatic weapon’, an ‘assault weapon’, and a ‘weapon of war’.
The thing is, they are quite wrong on all three…

Additionally, they apparently don’t know that ‘automatic’ weapons have been banned in this country for more than 80 years… since the gangster days of the 30’s.

Note: The firearm generically named ‘AR-15’ is NOT an automatic weapon.

Here’s why they’re wrong, what they don’t know, and why they’re they’re telling you these lies:

I’m throwing this question out there for your discussion and opinion:
What is it going to take – to trigger the next civil war?

Note: I am NOT advocating a civil war. I am asking a question.

With that said, here’s more clarification:

Obama FBI Shuts Down NICS Background Check Appeals Process For Gun Owners

June 11, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

nics-appeal-denied

Obama’s war on gun owners continues.

Apparently the Department of Justice reports that 95% of initial denials under NICS are ‘false positives’. And now there is no longer an appeals process if you are one of the unlucky one’s who failed a NICS check upon purchasing a firearm, when there has been a mistake…

NICS is the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. It is designed to stop criminals from being able to purchase a gun (although most criminals obtain them illegally). Whenever a person chooses to purchase a firearm at a gun store, etc., the ATF Form 4473 is filled out and the gun store uses this form to submit your personal information to the FBI and NICS via a phone call.

The thing is, now, if your background check comes back as a denial, not only will they not tell you why you’ve been denied, but you are no longer able to appeal to the FBI for the denial!

Your constitutional right will have been repudiated by the government and no one can tell you why…
