Does a modern survivalist need a gun?

PistolShooter As controversial as the subject is, I thought I would post this anyway.  Guns cause a lot of controversy, but the one thing they don’t cause is…crime.  People cause crime, plain and simple.   Owning a gun is our 2nd ammendment right.  What part of “the right of the people to keep and bear arms,” is difficult to understand?

From the days of our revolution to the present, our freedom has been secured partially by the use of firearms.  Since this site is about today’s modern survival, let’s examine the role firearms play.

Since when does anyone have the authority to tell you that you cannot defend yourself?  Many in our government think they have that right.  Any bans on gun ownership are simply unconstitutional. If you believe in the right to free speech and religion, you should also believe in the right to gun ownership.

I carry a gun every day.  Why do I carry a gun?  Because I can’t carry a cop!

No one but myself can protect me and my family 24/7 and I should have the right to do so in any legal and reasonable means available to me.  You should fear a government that fears you owning a gun.  Why would they object to that?  Are they afraid you might be able to defend yourself against their tyranny?

Have you ever noticed most of the violent crime, specifically shootings take place in “gun free” zones such as schools, churches and government buildings?  Why?  Simple, if you think about it, criminals know that people are less likely to defend themselves in those areas.

So please remember this, get a gun if you can legally own one in your state and if you of legal age and have a clean background.  Then get training and learn how to use it!   Gun proof your kids, don’t try to kid proof your gun.  Keep it in a safe that’s easily accessible and practice, practice, practice.

If you live in a state that doesn’t allow you to defend yourself…move!  Seriously though, you need to take advantage of every other method of self defense available.  But if you live in a state or country that allows firearms, it’s a no brainer.


Americans have grown accustomed to a nanny state


Don’t be one of the “sheeple.”

Personal responsibility is your civic duty

Today lets look at how a renaissance of self sufficiency benefits the community.

The borrower is slave to the lender. Emancipate yourself from the slavery of debt. Build up an emergency fund. Quit living from paycheck to paycheck . Whether you lose your job or the economy has a downturn , you won’t have to make panic decisions or sell yourself to lenders or burden the welfare system.

Build a surplus of the things you need to live.
The systems that put food on the shelves of America have evolved into ” just in time” strategies that eliminate large inventories and warehouses. Interruptions in these systems at any level take days if not weeks to restore to the status quo. The people that are not prepared in advance,  further the problem by hoarding supplies after the crisis strikes . The more prepared the people are the less impact a local or regional crisis has and the less government intervention is needed.
Start a garden.

Even if you live in an apartment start to grow something. Even if it is just one or two plants in containers. This small step will change the way you look at the food you eat. It will give you confidence in yourself that you can provide food for yourself. Growing food is one of the most powerful tools to liberate yourself from the system. If you grow enough to help your neighbors you make yourself an invaluable part of your community .

Learn to cook from scratch.
Cooking is a survival skill that is slowly becoming a lost art. To maintain consistency chain restaurants have sparked an era of” heat and eat” food. Our busy lifestyles have filled our grocery stores with “fatigue food .” When you are just to tired to cook it is convenient, but it is expensive and less nutritious. During hard times you will find that you can stretch a dollar much further if you know how to cook. It will make you much more independent .
These are just a few examples of how one can take personal responsibility for their life. As you make these changes, share your journey with your friends and family.
