    And we thought Black Friday was bad...

    Mods - not sure where to post this.

    I was watching some of the evening news in reference to crowd riots on the opening of Black Friday sales. Please, no racial profiling, bias, or looking down our nose arrogantly.

    My liberal friends, and, yes, I have too many - LOL - sit in ivory towers believing all is well.

    I noticed the security guards could not hold the crowds in an orderly fashion, stop the literal stampeding, and finally the rioting over the goods. One big generic and non racially profiled guy, literally picked up two ladies and threw them aside, grabbed a box from one of them (check out Youtube) and got back in line.

    I think you know where I'm going with this. When the economy tumbles, and it will, and when the entitlement spigots go off, and they will, this is what you will see on the news. First, in the stores, then the community. This is where the libs are clueless. Like the poor Jewish, well-to-do lady in Schindler's List, who told her fellow cattle car friends that she had paid for a nice townhome at the camp, so will those who are unprepared.

    Yes, I believe eventually - two to six weeks, I pray - marshall law will finally prevail. God literally help the poor souls who are waiting for the police, or using a fireplace poker to defend their china and their lives.

    Postscript: As a believer in Christ, my wife and I have talked and re-talked on what our responsibility is to our literal neighbor. God help me, I hope I never have to eat these words. We will distribute what we have, materially, with them. However, if someone storms my home with the intent of harming my family for those same goods, I'll let God sort it all out in heaven.

    Certain People do turn into vultures when they feel they need or deserve something. I fear that you are right about the economic collapse, but do not know when it will happen. I am prepared for my family and a few others to ward off any threats that may appear. Prepare, Pray, Plan.

    Yup. My question as well. Thinking, maybe two months of foodstuffs. Then there are the neighbors...

    Would these be the neighbors whose SHTF plan is simply take what you have amassed?

    After a huricane hit us years ago, there was no electricity or running water for weeks. There was no fuel for vehicles either.a friend of mine had a water well in his back yard, but an electric pump. Another person had a water pump with a gasoline engine and I had a lot of fuel since I had a lot of boats in my back yard with gas in their tanks. We combined what we had to supply water for a lot of people and in turn these people, that where benefitting from our effort provided security and made sure nobody got out of hand. So yes it can be dangerous, but there is hope, we live among a lot of good people too.

    Neighbors who find themselves without.
    Neighbors who turn to active, aggressive looting/rioting.
    Folks from outside the neighborhood who are without, are looters/rioters, or are "gang" folk.

    Any of the above. Most likely, all of the above.

    If one wants an accurate idea of what things will be like when SHTF, they don't have to look any further than the last week of November every year. If people are acting like this over towels, TV's, toys, etc. - just imagine how they'll be acting when the items change to food, water, fuel, etc.

    Seriously, just tell me where the profiling is. Also, how would you, as a 2nd Amendment advocate, address this issue? I.e., how would you (or would you) address the issue of zombies (oh, there I go again) coming for what you have?

    The same way I'd handle somebody breaking into my home before SHTF.
