Bugout Tip (From Gov’t) For WROL And SHTF Disasters: ARM YOURSELF!

Bugout Tip (From Gov't) For WROL And SHTF Disasters: ARM YOURSELF!

“You can’t eat bullets.”

“All those guns won’t save you from a fire or an earthquake.”

“Why are you so paranoid?”

These are all things some people like to say to armed citizens when it comes to survival in a natural disaster or other emergency (like the current COVID-19 pandemic).

Now, look, I get the point these folks are trying to make.

No, weapons should not be your ONLY priority in an emergency.

But you also don’t DARE ignore them, because now…

Even The Government Says To Arm Yourself In A Disaster!

Bugout Tip (From Gov’t) For WROL And SHTF Disasters: ARM YOURSELF!

Your government isn’t exactly known for being on the “cutting edge” of preparing for a disaster:

They left a fleet of buses to be buried in flood water in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.

They left thousands of bottles of water to sit, unused, during disaster recovery efforts in Puerto Rico

And they complained that it simply didn’t have the resources to help people (seriously – FEMA. bureaucrats said this after Hurricane Maria)!

But now, the same people who famously confiscated guns from law-abiding citizens after Hurricane Katrina have changed their tune.

Specifically, more and more state governments are recognizing the REAL danger in a natural disaster.

What is that danger?

It’s other people.

Lawmakers in Texas, last year, approved a new bill that lets legal gun owners carry handguns in public for up to a week after a natural disaster.

It passed in a very close vote, and the lawmakers argued about it a LOT before passing it.

An article in the The New Republic said…

According to a summary, bill supporters don’t want to be “forced to leave handguns behind in vehicles or homes, where they could be at risk from looters.” [emphasis added]

The bill is a step in the right direction, but what it DOESN’T include is just as important:

The bill doesn’t require relief shelters to let in people who are armed.

In other words, if you’re an armed citizen and you intend to stay armed in a natural disaster…

…You’re on your own!

What Laws Like This Mean For Your Survival

If more and more states – the same people who haven’t exactly been quick to look out for you in the past – are recognizing the danger of natural disasters…

…you’re already behind the curve if you aren’t getting ready for this.

(Especially given all the attacks on gun sales and your gun rights that have happened since the pandemic started.)

Whether it’s a home-leveling hurricane, a raging forest fire, an earthquake, a flood… it ISN’T the disaster itself that your government is now worrying about.

It’s what comes AFTER the disaster, when innocent victims are preyed on by looters and other “human threats.”

Understanding the danger of looters and an increase in crime (which is exactly what happened after Hurricane Katrina turned New Orleans into a crime-ridden war zone) is the ONLY reason your state government would urge you to arm yourself in an emergency.

The problem has gotten so bad that state governments are flip-flopping from taking guns…

…to telling you you’d better make sure to have one, because “ain’t nobody gonna help ya!”

I talk about this in-depth in in my best-selling bug out bag manual.

The time to prepare ISN’T when danger is forcing you out your front door…

…or when it’s desperately trying to break in to get at your and your family.

Start arming… and preparing… now, while you can.

It could save your life.

SHTF / WROL Survival: Could A “Zombie” Outbreak Threaten YOUR Town?

Zombie Outbreak Survival Lessons
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

You’ve seen the television shows like “The Walking Dead” and movies like “World War Z.”

If you’re like me, you’ve wondered: Even though zombies aren’t real, plenty of real-life emergencies look a LOT like a zombie outbreak.

Remember the Ebola scare?

Or Coronavirus now?

That got me thinking: just how real is the “zombie threat,” and what can this possibility teach us?

Recently I talked to zombie enthusiast and survival expert Jake Sepulveda about the reality of an outbreak and, even though the “zombie” thing has kind of come and gone among survivalists, I think there are some still some relevant lessons.

Here is what Jake had to tell me.

What Can The “Zombie Threat” Teach Us?

There are a lot of myths behind zombies.

People automatically think “undead” like in “World War Z” or something similar, but that’s not the reality.

If you look at virology and the way viruses mutate and move, the way they evolve, you can see…

….that we quite possibly do have something to be very afraid of.

Viruses Are Terrifying

In a real emergency, you won’t be facing zombies… but you WILL be facing people who have very real zombie-like symptoms caused by an illness or even a drug.

Turn on your television.

Read the news.

There are zombie-like attacks, such as that rash of “bath salts” attacks not so long ago, that look an awful lot like something you see in a zombie thriller.

Who Are The “Zombies?”

There are different “zombie” types based on what is affecting the people in question.

  • Chemical zombies are people who have been exposed to a toxic chemical, radiation, or a nerve agent.
  • Parasite zombies are people who have been exposed to brain parasites that affect their behavior (there is a real-world fungus called Cordyceps that takes over the active parts of the brain in animals, making them behave strangely).
  • Drug zombies are people who have taken or been given drugs that alter their behavior, like bath salts.
  • Virus zombies are people who are sick, dangerous to your health, and possibly desperate, such as those with H1N1, Ebola, etc.

The Zombie Reality

The fact is, there are very real news stories involving people who attack other human beings and even eat flesh from their bodies.

We don’t know that this is likely to become an epidemic, and we know these people aren’t REALLY “zombies.”

Their behavior, however, makes them dangerous.

We must train to survive these real-life threats that look a lot like something from a horror movie.

THAT is the reality of the “zombie threat” in this, the real world.

Bugout Survival: Top 5 Hurricane Stragglers Who Stayed – And DIED!

Bug Out Or Survive In Place? The Price For Failing To Evacuate

Jeff Anderson, Editor

It was being called catastrophic

deadly

… a monster storm unlike anything the U.S. East Coast has ever seen before.

Hurricane Florence was churning on a devastating path straight toward small towns all up and down Virginia and the Carolinas.

Mandatory evacuation orders were given in nearly all of the expected flood zones to get people to seek safe shelter and get out of Dodge.

Yet, as usual, not everyone listens to evacuation orders – and…

Here Are 5 Reasons People Don’t Evacuate – And The Price Paid!

Bug Out Or Survive In Place? The Price For Failing To Evacuate
Bug Out Or Survive In Place? The Price For Failing To Evacuate

It’s not hard to get the “truth” out of stragglers who think they’re smarter than Mother Nature and decide to brave the storm that’s headed their way.

In fact, after several interviews, here are the 5 most common reasons why people don’t evacuate before a storm:

1. “It’s a hassle.”

I know, I know…

Gathering up the extra food… photo albums… packing it all in the family vehicle… jockeying for what looks like the evacuation traffic’s “fast lane” of cars creeping along at 3mph…

Who the hell wants to go through all THAT nonsense, right?
Besides, as Tim Terman (a NC resident) put it:

“Once you leave, it’s hard to get back in to check on damage. My home is all my wife and I have, materially speaking, a lifetime of stuff.”

I get it.

Leaving your “stuff” sucks.

2. “We have a good plan.”

Whether it’s coming from experience with other storms, or just a sense of confidence with their current supplies and options, many people stocked up to ride out the storm.

As one resident in South Carolina put it,

“We’ve got things boarded up. We’ve got a lot of supplies from Walmart, generators, so we’re good to go. We have our kits ready.”

That’s actually a very common approach – even for those WITHOUT any kind of plan.

And then there’s Phase 2 of this so-called “survival plan”…

3. “We’ll just wait. If things get bad enough, we’ll leave.”

A lot of people have weathered storms in the past and didn’t experience heavy damage.

Others came back after evacuating from previous storms only to find that they weren’t hit as hard as expected… but their home had been looted while they were gone.

That would make ANYONE want to think twice about leaving again, wouldn’t it?

As that same S.C. resident continued…

“Of course, we’re keeping an eye on the forecast… so if something changes and we need to go, we’ll get out at the last minute if we have to.”

But then what, right?

These are the same people who typically ALSO fall into the next category…

4. “I don’t know where to go.”

Evacuations are chaotic and confusing by their very nature.

Most people haven’t thought about where they would go if they had to leave their state or even just their local area.

And many towns don’t offer much help…

Emergency officials generally assign letters to evacuation zones for guidance – but most people don’t know what zone they live in and whether evac orders apply to them or not.

Some areas – like Myrtle Beach, SC – don’t have a major highway connecting them to outside areas which makes the evacuation process even slower and more confusing.

And once that decision IS made, nearly every shelter and hotel in a 150 mile radius will be booked solid – leaving very few (if any) options.

But here’s the #1 reason I hear the most…

5. “I’m too old/disabled/set in my ways to leave.”

Many residents simply don’t see leaving their home as an option.

For some, it’s truly NOT an option.

Senior citizens… disabled persons… people who are unable to leave because they’re caring for someone who can’t travel.

And of course there are always a good handful of cranky “Get off my lawn!” types who refuse to let Mother Nature get the best of them, right?

Now, Compare These Reasons To The Death Toll…

So far, about half of the deaths attributed to Hurricane Florence are from residents who are over 60 and stayed behind.

But it’s not just the “older” folks…

A 3-month old and a 7-month old from a separate family are among those whose parents didn’t feel like evacuating with a very young child was an option… and suffered the consequences as wind-blown trees crushed the children inside their home.

Then there are those who thought they had “a good plan” for sticking it out…

Like the couple who prepared for the expected loss of electricity by purchasing a generator… and ran it inside their home until they died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Look, natural disasters are NOT the easiest thing for most people to prepare for.

Most don’t give it any thought at all until it’s already too late.

And then there’s the expense of getting all that gear and supplies together – for some “event” that might never even happen, right?

I hear you.

But preparing for a disaster (or ANY crisis that can affect your local area) does NOT have to be difficult NOR expensive.

I’ve learned several “survival tricks” over the years.

Some are from my days in the military (believe it or not, prepping for a disaster is very similar to prepping for a combat mission!).

And some strategies I learned the hard way as a devastating flood came crashing through my small Texas town in the middle of the night, dragging a dozen of my local townsfolk into our tiny river to their deaths, including two young children as they held tight to their mother.

I swore that day that I was going to do everything I could to show people the REAL way to put together a survival plan – and without them going broke in the process.

That’s why I wrote the “Survival Gear Secrets” Report, and that’s also why I give it away for FREE.

Look, don’t make the same mistake that so many others make and just put things off until “later”.

Procrastinators die.

Hate to be so blunt, but it’s just the damn truth.

Take advantage of my life-saving survival “manual” and let me show you the prepping shortcuts I’ve learned (the hard way) over the years, and prepare NOW, before it’s too late.
