Here’s a question I direct to my fellow Preppers out there.  What are the things that concern you the most from a prepping standpoint; at the current time?  For myself there are two things. 1 – The trampling of our Constitutional Rights, especially the 2nd amendment and 2 – The lack of of certain types of firearms, mags and ammunition.  I happened to go to three of the more popular gun stores in my area today and it looked like shopping in a third world country.  The shelves were bare with no anticipated date in sight for when guns, mags and ammo will be back in stock in significant quantities.  So I open the floor; what prepping issues concern you these days?

You can get a free preview of my first three post apocalyptic fiction books by clicking on the book cover images to the left of this blog post, on my blog page, which will take you to the Amazon.com website. Then you can click on the look inside option which will give you a free preview.  If my survival fiction books interest you; then consider purchasing them.  Book titles include American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution and American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution.

Also I’d like to thank Docdigit for the 5 star review he gave my book American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution over at Amazon.  Thank you very much.

    from what i have been able to discern hi cap mags are on back order for the next 8 months. that is it will take 8 months for the production to catch up to demand. i am concerned over the Constitutional crisis being fomented by the fed govt. not to mention this economic house of cards. the economy cannot wthstand this continuing fiasco of monetary policy that is being played out in DC. Getting ammo in large quantities is getting hardpressed.

      The Constitutional crisis is indeed a big issue these days. Also trying to find a 30 round PMag AR-15 magazine with window or a Tapco SKS duckbill 20 round magazine is like trying to find a truthful politician. They may be out there but you just can’t locate them 🙂

        i see that olympic arms has started a campaign against any state that limits the 2nd amendment in any way, will be taken off the customer list and as well as any government agency within that state. they have also encouraged other arms companies to do the same. so far i have seen cheaper than dirt has joined this boycott. i do think i posted it in my blog, the open letter from the olympic arms president. this is a good sign to get the government to back off.

      • rmactsc says:

        I think it’s a great move by Olympic Arms. Hopefully more firearms companies will take the same approach.

    So long as we remain a silent majority, the policies of a liberal government will continue to find new ways to assault and trample the Constitution. Though many are hard pressed to find large capacity magazines and large quantities of ammunition, I take it as a sign that there are still some who are willing to defend those principles that founded this country. You are welcome for the review, the book was great and I’m looking forward to the continuation!

      It seems as though the United States is divided into two distinct camps. The self reliant ones who seem to vote Conservative and the give me give me give me entitlement group who vote liberal. The only reason the liberals ever win a political race is because they have trained the masses to expect free stuff cradle to grave. This country definitely needs a course correction. Also I’ll add you to the dedication write up inside of American Rebellion Book 4 if you don’t mind. I can either refer to you on the dedication page as Docdigit or I can list your real name; whatever you prefer. It’s my way of saying thanks for the excellent review.

    Reblogged this on Jesse Talks Back and commented:
    My concern is that people are oblivious to the monetary distress occurring thanks to DC (since Jackson) but progressively worse since FDR- and simply appalling over the last 20 years. Monetary collapse would create far more issues given the increased dependence of average citizens on government. (Everyone expects gov to “work” when in reality it will never work again) 🙂

      Government employees (bureaucrats) seek only to preserve and enhance their positions. The definition for bureaucrat at Dictionary.com is “an official who works by fixed routine without exercising intelligent judgment”. This now applies to both elected and non-elected officials.

    • rmactsc says:

      Thanks for the reblog. I agree with your assessment. All it would take is massive devaluation to send the economy into a dangerous and precarious state.

  4. I really doubt the weapons ban will pass. The real problem that needs to be addressed though is the right to BEAR arms. Open carry is an unalienable right, just no one wants to talk about that part. And I already have the misfortune of living in Cali so I only get 10 rounds anyways.

    • rmactsc says:

      I think the weapons ban will fail this time but if liberals held the house, senate and presidency it might have been a different story. My condolences on you living in the People’s Republic of California.

    • docdigit says:

      I think that we need to be cautious in our assumptions. We all assumed that Chief Justice Roberts would help kill Obamacare and we know what happened there. We need to be vigilant as, I am sure, that at least portions of the bill will get through.

      • rmactsc says:

        It amazes me that we have a Constitution that clearly states the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed yet the liberals choose to ignore it and infringe away. Perhaps there should be an amendment to the Constitution that states what punishment will specifically happen to those who circumvent the Constitution.

      • docdigit says:

        This is what I really enjoy…

        Secret Service protection:
        Former presidents were entitled from 1965 to 1996 to lifetime Secret Service protection, for themselves and spouses and children under 16. A 1994 statute, (Pub.L. 103–329), limited post-presidential protection to ten years for presidents inaugurated after January 1, 1997. Under this statute, Bill Clinton would still be entitled to lifetime protection, and all subsequent presidents would have been entitled to ten years’ protection. On January 10, 2013, President Barack Obama signed legislation reinstating lifetime Secret Service protection for himself, George W. Bush, and all subsequent presidents.
        Richard Nixon relinquished his Secret Service protection in 1985, the only president to do so. (Wikipedia)

        Looks to me like only the liberal Presidents wanted lifetime protection…why is that? More importantly, why is it that THEY can have that protection, but want to make sure that the rest of us cant’?

        It does make you wonder.
