Step 1: create fear and increase security. Check.

Step 2: cripple the economy and force people to embrace the government as a helping hand (Obama care). Check.

Step 3: reduce gun ownership and increase police (police state). In progress.

Step 4: Gov't is no longer by the people, for the people.

Open your eyes!

You ever watch Preppers?
When a nuke goes off, you will die, no matter what caliber gun you're holding and despite your little flash light was sold as "tactical".
http://channel.nationalgeographic.co...sday-preppers/

Start prepping.
that show is just psy ops to portray true preppers as crazy, fat, suspicious and stupid. This type of tactic works on small minded and uneducated people. True preppers would never go in a show.

I'm actually quite the optimist. Don't confuse preparedness and realism with pessimism

Why isn't the media reporting the Sandy Hooks killer's AR was left in his car and not used in the killings?

Same reason the second shooter was swept under the rug, the coroners report was falsified and we've never seen a single autopsy, medical report or CCTV video

Any noob could tell you what kind of gun was used simply by bending over and picking up shell casings.

oooh...

The Bushmaster had "a combat-style flash suppressor". Now that's scary.

Possibility of 10 years and a 250,000 fine? I Hope it was worth it to her.

Not even close but nice try defending your view points while looking down onto mine.

Here is the reality:

I live just like everyone else, I have a family, we go out to dinner, movies, the park, etc. We live an active life style and get involved with our community. I dont live in fear, im not looking over my shoulder ever 2 seconds, im not sitting on my couch with my finger on the trigger. I dont have 10 years of food and water stacked away in my garage, nor do I have 1000 gallons of gasoline. However, I am prepared.

Being prepared is how I live my life, not only do I carry a loaded pistol but im prepared in several different ways. My family has a meeting spot should anything happen, house fire, riots, etc. We have extra batteries and flashlights in the house. I do stack up an extra case of water in garage and also keep about 3-4 weeks worth of food in the freezer.

Im sure you will have an opinion but I can sum it down to this:

I will defend my family with deadly force if needed. How will you defend yours?

Nice to see this has devolved into another "home invasion fantasy" vs. "do you really need guns?" thread. Carry on.

I'm not looking down on anyone. I'm genuinely curious about the thought process that makes people fear their government so much that they feel the need to buy thousands if rounds of ammo and dozens of guns.

Seems sad to me.
