You must be prepared to
and your possessions.
In the coming chaos (or Kos) you will be called upon to defend the greatest system of government that has ever evolved on the face of this earth. You will also be called upon to defend yourselves and your neighbors who have not prepared for the insanity the totalitarians will unleash.
Pump shotguns in 12 gauge for men and 20 gauge for women are essential with boxes of 00 buckshot. I recommend Remington for strength and reliability, but Mossberg has improved theirs by adding a second slide in the past few years
If you have rural property and fear the invasion of urban gangs pillaging the countryside once they have looted the inner cities to the point of starvation, then you need something like a SKS or AK 47 and a lot of ammo to dissuade these parasites.
The buckshot need not be aimed perfectly as long as it blasts the heart-lung area, which would be the best aiming choice. A brain shot, the preferred one for charging elephants that drop the pachyderms on a dime, will do the same for a charging communist.
When, because of my job at the time of the Reginald Denny riots, I had to be in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, I obtained a license to kill. Concealed carry permit. I now strongly, very strongly recommend to each and every one of you, male and female, to get one as soon as possible.
I knew that if, because of my job, I was trapped in the ghetto and surrounded by rioting residents, I would have to make a significant impression on the crowd. I purchased a Taurus pistol that was used and 3 high cap 9mm magazines, giving me about 60 quick shots to clear a street. Assuming I hit 3 out of 4 rioters, that should open the way to safety.
These are my recommendations and if you ignore then and brand me as an extremist, that is your right. If not and I have correctly predicted the future, then shame on you.
