yet another case is upon us where the Police and National Guard despite there best efforts to protect the civilians are simply inadiquate, there are now early reports on FOX NEWS that those arrested were released from the holding cells because they simply have no place for them... in the aftermath of this horrible storm the scum that live among us have taken the oppertunity to loot, not for food that I dont think I can really fault anyone for it is survival, but for TV's, Stereos, ect. and worst of all people have begun robbing their neighbors homes stealing what they find of value that is portable. the newest stories of these criminals reports they have armed themselves with firearms of various types and are using stolen mail trucks as loading trucks, now i am sure this will be used by the brady's to show the evil of guns, however the guns are here and more laws will not remove them from criminal hands and without the arming of oneself there is no way to protect your family and belongings from the thieves and thugs that always show their face in the times when society needs to stick together the most.

I have never been one of the survivalist types and while i have always looked at my pistols as important self defense tools for CCW, In my situation i never really saw a time where I would use my "black rifles" in self defense, I always train with these rifles but mostly for the joy of shooting them, however in this situation i believe my eyes have been opened up a little bit, the worst of times bring out the best as well as the worst in mankind and while many are working together to help out there are small groups working together for a different purpose and assaulting homes and buisnesses, with no police support i cannot see a more effective method to protect yourself and your family than a good "black rifle" w/ammo and a sufficient supply of food and water, in a situation like this you are truly on your own, the destruction is on such a large scale that there is no one else to call on. my uncle just got through to me, he lives in one of the worst hit areas of New Orleans, LA, and tried to explain to me that the situation is worse than the news could possibly get across and now that the police told him to leave or be arrested. he left and is afraid that all his pocessions are gone....

my prayers are with those living in these areas affected by this storm, good luck and be smart remember your stuff is not worth your life,

the national guard is proving their worth once again saving countless lives by their actions... good job guys your work does not go unappreciated, we dont have the luxury of calling on another country for aid, we take care of our own!!!

Damn straight bro......I live in the boonies and we are definately on our own if it be a break in, or weather related problems.

I have all the parameters covered in all cases and my family will be taken care of.

I have more ammo than their are willing evil doers.


I wish your uncle the best and at least he still has his health and life, some people lost that as well.

Years ago, when the Mormon church told its members to keep 6 months supply of food and water they were called "nuts". Time and time again, they have been called upon to share the stockpiles (In the first world war the Mormon women throught their organization known as the "relief society" sold to the government more than 400,000,000 million bushels of wheat that had been stockpiled over a period of almost 60 years). The Mormon church through its members have already transported, from personal stocks, more than 100,000 TONS of food and water to those in terrible need down south, along with providing shelter, medical assistance, and emergency communication.

I personally have 2 years worth of preserved foodstuffs and water, along with more than 100,000 rounds of ammunition. Not just for myself, but for my neighbors.

I personally encourage EVERYONE to take their own personal safety in mind. Make an emergency prepardness kit that includes enough food and water to last atleast 2 weeks for thier entire family, pets, and elderly persons (and of course the handicapped) that live in their immediate vicinity. Im not saying your entire neighborhood or even your whole block, just your IMMEDIATE neighbors, and maybe for a few friends. Im sure that this sounds wierd, but as we have seen down south, the people that do the best were the ones that thought ahead.

Incidentally, I would also encourage everyone to aquire an amateur radio (ham) license and have suffecient energy storage to power their transmitter. For a time, the only non-police and military communications to come of of the affected areas was from individual Ham operators. May God bless them.

No rock is an island, and no man is truly alone...as long as his Brother is in need.
