Prepping News Story and Video - Are you? Have you considered the people next door?
My comments: I find it amazing how so many Urbanites (especial in Far Left leaning areas) do not understand that they should be prepared for at least the basic emergency situation, an earthquake in CA for example, but do not embrace firearms or understand the need - not even a little .22 rifle for basic survival. And yet they would go nuts if they knew I/mabe you live right next door to them, and I/mabe you might not feel the need to be sharing, and can defend my/your right to protect what is mine/yours.
'Society' is a very fragile balance between denial and insanity, and will go to insanity in about the drop of the hat in the right circumstances.
It really annoys the people that I listen to that people actually store up a little food and have firearms. After all, thier reasoning is that the Police and Fire Department will ignore the needs of each member's family so that they can stay here and serve those fools........right! I'm not saying that those Public Servants are not dedicated, but in a situation over several days, they have to take care of thier own also, and I don't blame them for wanting to.
How many of you have people next door that are in denial and would be the first to beg/or demand help at your door because you are moderately better prepared?
Below is a pretty good writeup and news report from A FOX affiliate on prepping for a disaster or other.

(WALA) - It can happen in an instant or with very little warning - a disaster strikes and your life is turned upside down.
Along the Gulf Coast, we prepare ourselves every year for hurricane season and the potential destruction it can bring. But there are those living amongst us who are prepared for much more.
They call themselves preppers and to them it’s a way of life.
Chances are, you have one or more as a neighbor and don’t even know it. They don’t advertise what they do even to their close friends and families, in many cases. To them, preparing for the worst has become a way of life and their reasons for prepping are as varied as their personalities........(snip)....
.....But Teet has a problem. As prepared as he may be, he lives in a heavily populated suburb of Mobile and worries about how ill-prepared most of his neighbors are. Protecting his family and his stockpile of necessities is a top priority.
Because of this concern, he has purchased and has become skilled at using several firearms. To him, stockpiling ammunition is nearly as important as food and water.
