If you had no guns, and SHTF, economic break down over night.
Which is pretty much how its predicted to happen.
I don't mean an economy slowly getting worse, I mean the stock market dropping 2,000 points, then 2,000 more the following day.
Everything falls to hell within a week, what do you do to get guns?
You try to go to your local gun shop, but the smart folks got there before you, and whats left he double or tripled the price on.
what do you sell in order to come up with the money?
he's only accepting gold or silver for guns and ammo maybe.
What do you think the majority of non gun owning americans will do if total shtf and they need to be armed?
