Let me first make one point clear. I am not pro-gun, but I am pro-self-defense in times of social chaos.
Self-defense means different things to different cultures. In Canada, it means the martial arts; in America, it means guns. And in America, you will likely be needing some means of self-defense in the not too distant future.
Back in September, I published my [Economic/Social Collapse Trilogy], in which I stressed the necessity for self-defense. Now, I am still talking about it, but with a greater sense of urgency. The time frame according to most directly addressing this issue outside of mainstream media is 2013-2015. A very few project the national-debt-mounting trend to upwards of $20 trillion by the year 2020, but this is purely speculative extrapolation. I doubt this can happen, not that the borrowing and paper-money printing won’t keep on business as usual, but that the already top-heavy house of cards will have collapsed way before then.
A few friends have taken my care-based advice and begun to procure some means of self-defense. For those who have not, it might now be tough to catch up.
Whether you take self-defense seriously or not, it will pay for you to keep your fingers on the pulse of society. On the basis of research alone, I have taken weekly surveys of the ammunition shelves of Walmart, Big-5 and Yeager’s. As late as September 2012, the shelves were still fully stocked; ammunition of all calibres were still plentiful. By October and November (but well before the Connecticut school shooting and therefore had nothing to do with gun control), most popular calibre ammo, e.g. .22lr, .223 and 9mm, had become hard to come by. As of early December and especially now, empty shelves have become by and large the norm. All .22lr ammunition, for example, have long been sold out. Demand has overwhelmed supply by horizons. Restocking is nowhere in sight. Any new shipment is gobbled up within hours if not minutes. Waiting lists have become so long that they have been cut off. The waiting period is now measured in months, possibly more time than we have left. Anyone scrambling to procure ammunition now is S.O.L.
I’m not talking particularly about weaponry here. I’m talking about the surging seriousness with which more and more people are taking the probability and potential imminence of the economic/social collapse on which I blogged four months ago.
