This needs to come back into perspective. I have yet to say we shouldn't be prepared or that there's anything wrong with being prepared, or that there's anything wrong with having lot's of ammo and guns on hand. Guns and ammo wise, I am probably as prepared as the next guy. My training probably far exceeds most; and I'm planning to go to two, week long schools this summer.
Still, I find humor in all the prep I do for an "event" that may never happen. But, I also appreciate the results of my training and preparedness. At the same time, I contrast that with the chances of having a house fire are much greater than "that" event. But what do I do in prep for that? A few smoke detectors. And I have the all but useless fire extinguishers about the house.
I guess it just brings it into perspective, I mean here I am all prepared, ready to defend and all, and the BGs simply send a flaming car into my house, and shoot us when we come out of the blazing house.
And admittedly, I hadn't heard about the shootouts in N.O., but even with that, it remains a very isolated and unique event.
But, I think this is one of those situations that somebody says something kinda semi-serious enjoying some of the paradoxes of the situation, and somebody takes it to be all serious, a threat to accepted survival dogma and it takes on a whole new face.
Go back and read my post. Knowing where I was really coming from, I think you'll find it more entertaining than threatening.
