In the wake of a disaster or after a SHTF situation occurs you can expect the level of violent crime to increase.  Rape, murder, kidnapping, burglary, arson, etc., will be the new societal norm for the criminal element.  You will need to be armed.  Not following this basic premise will almost guarantee that you will become a victim of a violent crime and possibly killed at some point.

Insanity will reign in the inner cities and this violence will spread to the suburbs.  Law enforcement will not be sufficiently available to contain the violence so you must have the ability to defend yourself.  For your own personal security firearms become an essential component of your overall defensive plan.

If you expect bad economic times, social unrest, escalation of criminal activities, etc., you should stock up on defensive firearms, plenty of quality ammunition and spare magazines as required.  Remember any type of socio-political and economic instability triggers psychological instabilities and contributes significantly to the rise in brutal, violent crimes.  You do not want to become a refugee, forced from your home and you certainly do not want to become a victim of a violent crime.

Do not become a target for those who can do you harm; be inconspicuous in your activities and stay out of sight;  don’t attract unwanted attention; don’t become a refugee and never give up your ability or desire to resist and survive.  Become proficient with your firearms of choice as the safety of you and your family from violent criminal predators may just depend on it.

After a SHTF situation occurs; violent crime levels will increase.  Theft, burglary, kidnapping, arson, rape and murder will be the new norm.  You will need to be armed and have the proper skills to defend yourself with your weapons of choice. Insanity will reign in the inner cities and will spread out to the suburbs and then the rural areas. Not enough law enforcement will be available to contain the violent inner city residents so you must become your own first line of self defense. 

If you expect massive civil unrest, economic hardships, political instability, etc., you must have the necessary means, via  weapons and proper weapons training to defend yourself from violent attacks.  Socio-political and economic instability can trigger psychological instability in people which will lead to a rise in violent crimes. Don’t become an easy target for those who can do you harm.  Don’t become a refugee and never ever give up your ability or desire to resist against a violent aggressor.

With so many different home defense firearms choices; I’d be interested in knowing what specific firearm my readers are using for home defense purposes and why that particular firearm was selected.  I ask because I keep going back and forth between a Mossberg 590A1 shotgun for home defense, a S&W M&P45 semi auto handgun for home defense, or a Taurus Tracker 357 Magnum revolver for home defense.  It seems that on a fairly regular basis I’m routinely swapping out my primary home defense weapons thinking that I can gain that much more of an advantage in defensive capabilities by doing so.  With that said I’d like to see what others are doing in this regard.

Stay strong and courageous my friends.  The 2nd amendment is still going strong after all these years and even though there are those who want to repeal it or change it; when push comes to shove they will be defeated every time.  Law abiding citizen’s with access to firearms is the surest way to stop violent criminal aggression.  Always has been, always will be.  Be proud to be an American and be proud to have the right to keep and bear arms.  After all when it comes to your own personal safety and the safety of those you love; it is your right and responsibility to provide protection and keep violent predators at bay.

Home security comes down to making your home as safe and comfortable as possible for you and your family and as difficult and discouraging as possible for thugs and other criminals to gain access.  The following are some important things to consider when it comes to home security.

  • Don’t flash expensive jewelry or large amounts of cash in public as it becomes a magnet for would be thieves to follow you home.
  • Don’t leave empty boxes for expensive items such as TV’s or computers out at your curb as it will advertise the fact that you have recently acquired a new and expensive item.
  • Keep valuables including cash, jewelry, etc., well hidden.
  • Keep all windows and doors locked; this includes garage doors.
  • Large dogs are an excellent burglar deterrant.
  • Keep thorny bushes trimmed and placed under windows to make it difficult for burglars to hide behind or to gain access through a window.
  • Use caller ID and never give strangers personal information ever.
  • Beware of dishonest workmen who use the opportunity when working on your home to scout it out for potential robbery opportunities.  Do not leave workmen unattended in your home.
  • Train and be proficient with firearms in case they are needed for self defense purposes.
  • Use door jam or door stop bars on exterior doors to prevent doors from being forced open.
  • Do not allow your mail, newspapers or circulars to pile up in your driveway or mailbox as this alerts burglars that no one is home.
  • Keep your cell phone operational, with you and fully charged.
  • Trust your instincts; if you feel as though something is wrong or that danger is lurking trust that instinct.
  • Maintain situational awareness.

If society collapses and law and order becomes non-existent; security will become a major concern.  If you have taken the time to prepare and prepped the things you will need to survive; they will do you no good if you cannot protect them from thugs and looters.  There will be no police to call, and you may be on your own, or with a small group of friends and or family; so it will be up to you to make sure you have the will and the skill to protect yourself and your survival supplies.

If you cannot defend it; then you will not be able to keep it.  This applies to food, water, medical supplies and even family members.  Remember violent crime and rape will reach epic proportions so you need to be prepared to protect yourself and the ones that you love.  The breakdown of society and collapse of law and order will make many people feel that they can do whatever they want; and many will not think twice about assaulting, raping, and murdering if they feel that there is no societal enforcement present.  So are you prepared to survive a complete societal breakdown?  The time to include such planning within your survival plan is now.

Some of you have perhaps noticed I have not posted in the last six days; and that was due to battling a fever, body aches, chills, and your basic underlying cold symptoms.  It gave me a chance to ponder a few things on the road to recovery.  Generally I am a very healthy person and I am grateful and appreciative for that; but being sick for these past six days has made me once again realize just how important your health really is.

If I had needed to defend my home or protect my family while dealing with fever, chills, and bodyaches; it is doubtful whether I would have been able to do so effectively.  Let’s face it; nothing puts you out of commission faster than sickness or overall poor health.  With that said I have made a renewed commitment to eating better, taking better care of myself, maintaining a more relaxed and peaceful mindset, being more appreciative of things, being less critical and less judgemental of others, and praying to God each and every day.  After all I am certainly not getting any younger but hopefully I am getting a little wiser.

If looters and thugs strike, or if zombies are on the horizon, or if you have to deal with societal collapse or any other disasters that come to mind; if you don’t have your health then you are at a significant disadvantage.  So please, do whatever you can to stay as healthy as possible.  I wish all of you the very best and I hope that wherever you are; you find yourself safe, secure, happy and healthy.
