It is risky not to be on the alert at all times. You don’t want to take chances on your security, protection, and welfare. An effective way to protect yourself is by stockpiling survival items.
Stockpiling these items will get you safe in any unforeseen dangerous events and circumstances. The fire extinguisher can be the only item you would need to prevent your house from getting ablaze in a fire incidence. You can use your survival knife as a self-defense weapon.
Related: How To Correctly Choose Your Survival Knife
Also, if the circumstance demands erecting a shelter (usually temporary), you can use your knife to trim limbs. In cases of blackouts, your headlamp would provide you with illumination. I can go on and on in pointing out the importance of stockpiling survival items.
But hey, that is not just all to it! You can be arrested for hoarding some items.
This is a quite dangerous metallic object you can put on your fingers in a combat. It is helpful in self-defense.
Although there is no federal law expressly prohibiting possession of brass knuckles, some states treat this item as a concealed weapon and you are not allowed to possess it.
These states include New York, Colorado, New Jersey, Vermont, etc. Also, some districts like the District of Columbia forbid you from possessing this item. If at all you want to have this item, you must obtain a license for that.
Note that even in states like Iowa, Ohio, where knuckles are not expressly prohibited, you may be charged with felony when you use it in a violent crime.
Generally, you are allowed to possess or keep knives that are less than 2-3 inches. However, you are not permitted to possess some types of knives.
Different states have different regulations on the types of knives you cannot keep.
In Texas, you cannot use a knife with a blade that is above 5½ inches.
Whereas in California, you are prohibited from keeping belt knives, air gauge knives, ballistic knives, butterfly knives, dirks, stilettos, knives over 2 inches in length, and knives you cannot detect with metal detectors.
In Illinois and Florida, you cannot keep ballistic knives. In New York, you cannot keep metal knuckle knives, throwing stars, cane swords, and ballistic knives.
Related: If You Don’t Have These 9 Self-Defense Items, You Are Not Really Prepared
In Alabama, you are not permitted to have concealed bowie-like knives. Also, in Hawaii, butterfly knives and switchblades are illegal.
Under both federal and state laws, it it illegal to manufacture, distribute or receive explosive materials without a license.
According to the Federal Explosives Act of 1917, possession of explosives is prohibited.
If you are looking at getting explosive materials in your survival items, you would have to ditch that idea.
Otherwise, you may be arrested.
This is an electroshock weapon you can use to incapacitate a violent attacker. It has two small darts that can penetrate and cause electric shock on a targeted person.
In New York, Hawaii, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, you are not permitted to possess or use a taser.
However, in Connecticut, you can carry this item along with you, either in person or in a car. In Illinois, you must obtain a Firearm owner’s identification card before you can possess a taser.
According to the Federal Switchblade Act 1958, it is illegal to use switchblades. Some states also forbid you from possessing or using this item.
These states include Hawaii, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Washington, Delaware, etc.
There are punishments if you flout this law. For example, in Minnesota, owning a switchblade is a misdemeanor crime with a penalty of 90 days or 1-year imprisonment and fines.
Large Capacity Magazines
This is a type of magazine with a high number of ammunition rounds. It enables you to shoot repeatedly without reloading the rifle.
Some states like Hawaii, Connecticut, California, Colorado, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York, Maryland, and Vermont have legislations that prohibit you from having large-capacity magazines.
Under the Colorado Revised Statutes 18-12-302, the maximum permissible magazine capacity is 15.
In Hawaii, Connecticut, Maryland, etc., the maximum is 10 rounds.
Using large-capacity magazines attracts punishments.
In Colorado, this attracts 12-18 months imprisonment and or $1,000 to $10,000 fine. In 2021, the Ninth Circuit upheld California’s penal code 32310 which forbids possession of large-capacity magazines.
States like New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Florida, Colorado, Arizona, California, and Washington have restrictions on trapping.
In New Jersey, it is illegal to possess a steel-jaw leghold trap. In Florida, you cannot possess or use steel leg-hold, body-grip, and dog-proof raccoon traps.
⇒ DIY Automatic Backyard Traps And Alarms Against Looters And Intruders
If at all you need traps, you must obtain the necessary permit from the Food and Wildlife Conservation.
There are variations of permitted bullets across all states. States like California and Connecticut do not allow you to possess ‘large caliber’ ammunition.
In Florida, it is illegal to possess or use Dragon’s breath bullet. The Dragon’s breath can shoot out sparks and flames of over 100 feet.
In Florida, California, and Illinois, you are not permitted to possess flechette bullets. Be sure to check out if the type of bullets you are getting is permitted in your state.
Until 2004, assault rifle was banned at the federal level under the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act 1994. However, it is still illegal to possess or use an assault rifle in some states.
These states are Maryland, Massachusetts, Hawaii, California, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey.
If you plan to include an assault rifle in your survival item and it is prohibited in your state law, you need to ditch that right away.
Under the Maryland code of criminal law, a first offender here is liable to imprisonment for a minimum period of five years and a maximum of twenty years.
A second or subsequent offender is liable to imprisonment for a mandatory minimum of ten years with a maximum of 20 years.
If you are looking at getting a silencer to your survival items, you need to check if it is permitted in your state.
Some states such as Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, California, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and District of Columbia criminalize the possession of silencers.
Under the California’s penal code 33310, it is a criminal offense to possess a silencer. The punishment is up to 3 years imprisonment.
You don’t want to be arrested by the cops for possessing what is illegal to possess. And yes, ignorance is not an excuse here. That’s pretty much why I have taken you through some of the items that are illegal for you to hoard.
Note that there may be variations across different states and districts. Just be sure you are not breaking the laws of the place where you are resident.
Well this wasn’t great nor was it useful. But they tired
Hoarding or Just having…
Don’t stop hoarding or just having, all that you will be able to defend.
No one will be there for you, but you.
If it is or isn’t illeagle. so what
This is a time of survival. America has fallen…
The irony is that the ones who make these silly rules against having all these things are the ones that carry them, use them freely, and train themselves extensively in their use, as if they have some special right above me. They do. They’re called the enemy and criminals. Why would anyone trust in or listen to or obey the enemy, unless they have their gun or broken whiskey bottle at your head or throat.
I don’t advocate war or any related crime, but I sure in hell don’t support these false rulers whose agenda is not for my, or our, well-being, no matter what costume they wear, or what title they dress themselves with.
Underneath these empty trappings is just a man who has no more rights to God’s earth and seas as I do. To allow ourselves to think otherwise is a crime.
If you think you need it, buy it or make it, then hide it away and never boast or speak about it. When TSHTF, then there is no-one to tell you what is illegal, or not. The cops will be home defending their own families, not ganging up on supposed illegal items that the cops probably have anyway. Have kids? Train them in the four monkeys, hear, speak, say, or see “no evil”. Also remember this: “different is dead”, when it all falls apart, you have to look, smell, and be as raggedy as anyone else. Freshly showered, clean, and a full belly will get people to wondering about you, follow you home, spy on you, then kill you and enslave your family and use YOUR stuff up. Never depend upon the supposed “goodness of civil people” because it will not be there unless you are extremely lucky.
In the state of Wisconsin, it is illegal for raven to have a folk because he might put his eye out.
Megatron, what do you mean they tired? I feel I can waste my time pointing out your useless comment, as you wasted yours writing a useless, unnecessary post. If you don’t like what is in the article, don’t read it and don’t post about it. Your post was not great, nor useful
well thanks for the reply
And think, Alllll this in the free’est County in the world.. lol.. more like Fee’est.
Oh Miss Maggie!🌹
Please do not be a Karen🙏
He misspelled “tried,” but you ain’t smart enough to see that.
Look at from another perspective what others don’t know doesn’t hurt you. As for having certain items you put those in your hidden stash. When the SHTF laws will not matter. A government cannot enforce laws when 90% of people are dead and the only moral code is what you can enforce by any means necessary. As for confiscation how are you going to take things to redistribute when everyone is smart enough to remove FEMA or any other government unknowns on site. Currently we have United Nations troops from China and Somalia on United States soil. Do you think that I am going to comply with a known foreign enemy? Not Hardly. This was totally useless article that requires updating because laws have changed and it appears that this article is 30 years old? Have a nice day. For those who will want to trade after the SHTF, making a demand like “I want or give me ” Will cost you your life. If you have a tradable item and you need something desperately. Explain your situation and what you are offering in trade. Many do not understand that certain skill sets are also tradable. I know how to produce antibiotics and certain medications. But I need a stable and safe area to work within. I also went to medical school. I can handle small cuts and deep wounds if I have the necessary items like disolvable sutures. Just saying that if the SHTF what is illegal is what you carry as your morality. And having items that can save your life isn’t going to stop you.
I don’t feel the article was totally useless, my opinion. If it gets those like me thinking in the vein of the possibilities if we have a search and seizure of our property, we will have some inkling of what could happen. I agree that when the SHTF, the only laws that will be enforced are laws made by either the biggest or most well armed person on the property. I will never be the biggest, but I can be armed somewhat. Its the before the SHTF that this article addresses, as we collect in a necessary abundance those things we need for survival, it could conflict with local laws.
My Friends & Visitors, please do not be misled…
Again I ask that you are not “MISLED.”
There is no-such-thing as an “Assault Weapon.” It doesn’t exist. The word, “Assault” is a verb that that means: “a violent physical or verbal attack” (Miriam-Webster).
The ONLY “Weapon” that has ‘ever existed’ lies between the approximate half-foot between our ears, and there is nothing more dangerous.
EVERYTHING ELSE is nothing but an ancillary ‘tool’ to be used as it was designed. And yet, the paper stapler on your desk can be used to access the “approximate half-foot between” an assailant’s ears.
The “controllers” and all of their puppets in DC and throughout the deep blue sea want nothing more than to strip your rights first to the second degree then to the first degree then to destroy the entire playbook.
DO NOT COMPLY! Stock-up.
Why hide it. The rifles are weapons of war and yes they are for killing why else would we buy it
Texas no longer restricts blades. Can even open carry a sword or lance. But no one does. Also open carry of guns with no permits is legal in Texas.
No restrictions on blade length.
Permitless carry of firearms.
Brass knuckles have been legal for almost 4 years.
Texas is the best place to live for weapon hoarding.
“Assault rifle”??? “Silencer”??
Silencer is common verbiage for it
Assault rifles everyone knows what they mean by it…. same as clip
getting butt hurt over the “not what you like verbiage is stupid”
Exactly. There IS no such thing as an “assault rifle” no more than such a thing as an assault fork, or spoon or whatever. A rifle is a thing. To assault is an action. Most ignorant use of wording in years.
YES! Assault rifle is a made up name to demonize the weapon. Everyone remembers the AR is the ArmaLite corp. Silencer really should be called a suppressor because they, even in the smaller calibers are not quiet. I have only shot them in the 22,223 and 5.7 cal’s. And stood behind the firing line at an outdoor range while others fired. I read all these sites with a grain of salt. We are all smart enough to figure out how they pertain or not to us personally.
Stay safe and God Bless…
Least of my problems in a SHTF situation is if my knife is 2” over legal or my magazine is over 15 rounds. Secure these “illegal” items until needed, then use to save a life!
the truth is who gives a damn if you do have it
Meg, that’s the best thing you said in a week. Like a great-uncle told me, It’s not illegal if they can’t find the still. niio
red, you posted “It’s not illegal if they can’t find the still”, does that apply to other illegal activities like producing meth, smuggling fentanyl, being involved in human trafficking, or even vile things like child prostitution and kiddi-porn?
please think before you post
If you have it and it is illegal to have, then don’t “advertise” it. It’s no one business but yours right now. When SHTF the items could be life saving. At that time the laws won’t mean much and it may well be survival of the fittest. The same planning applies to ALL your Prepping supplies.
I do not have many prepping supplies, but do have some – as space and budget permits….
However, I am aware that, not only may it be necessary to share what I do have,
It may also be mandated (by very real Executive Orders on the books for decades) to have to surrender any “excess” provisions
I live alone in a blue city ( had moved away 3 times & 3 times circumstances required that i return here…) and stay prayerful as the tribulation increasingly rolls out.
We do what we can, as Almighty God helps us to!
However, it is still true that:
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.
Life on earth is still a Life in Exile. Our true home is NOT here.
The most important preparation is: to be able to be happy forever with Holy God and our loved ones in His Heaven+
By executive order you DO NOT HAVE TO SURRENDER ANYTHING!
Since when did Columbia and Ottawa become states? Also according to the FBI there is no such thing as an “assault rifle”. They classify thecAR15 as a RIFLE ONLY!! We may “know” what they are talking about but that’s the problem. The anti gun crowd started using the term about 60yrs ago as a way to scare people about certain guns who have little knowledge about them. Which sounds scarier? Assault weapon/rifle or just rifle? The DOJ has a definition of them and neither the AR15 or civilian AK47 meet that description. They are classified as RIFLES because that’s what they are. Every time one of us pro gun people allows the termb “assault rifle ” to be used without calling them on it the more people will believe they ARE “assault weapns”. Look up the YouTube video of the Sheriff testing the claim over “high cap magazines “. Even a novice can change a mag and start shooting again before you can “rush them” to stop them as is always claimed as a reason to only have a 10 round or less magazine. I was even surprised. If you are pro gun and 2nd A you have to start calling the media,the govt and anti gun people on the team “assault rifle/weapon. And then educate them about the TRUTH on the subject.
Dude you seem like NRA Fudd, who gets mad at people who have a finger on the trigger in a picture.
Nobody cares and calling people out for the Assult weapon ….. isn’t going to stop gun control or change anyone’s mind.
Yes we DO care!! That is part of the Left’s whole strategy…rename/mis-name to create fear and anger. They use “loaded language” to turn public opinion and sentiment. Willilson is correct…if even pro-firearm/2A people use their terms you are aiding and abetting!
neither side cares ….. Its just a game to get you distracted and worked up over nothing. 90 percent of you can’t even field strip a AR15 without a youtube video. So don’t try and tell me your now a SME on firearms.
If people, especially youngsters and young adults, are so strongly influenced by what they see on TV and in movies and video games, then yes, it matters when photos are posted with a finger on the trigger, when muzzles are pointed at people and when inaccurate language is used. If the pro-gun people can’t set a good example, how can they complain about the anti-gun people using incorrect language and unsafe practices against them? It really does come back to “Practice what you preach.”.
BTW, I do not consider myself to be a Fudd, NRA or otherwise. Rather, I am a certified NRA and Texas LTC Instructor and I take firearm safety very seriously. On my range, the same rules are practiced, whether using an Airsoft gun, a laser gun or a conventional firearm, dry firing or “hot.” That way, there is no confusion and there is only one set of safety rules and safe practices to remember and follow. You should try it sometime.
. We do team movement bounding drills. So yes we are often ahead of the firing line. Safety is critical
Ain’t gonna hurt either. Just like educating them on TRIGGER SAFETY doesn’t hurt anytime you tell them. SMH
FYI as far as changing what the meaning of a word is have seen the recent ad that’s been running with the 20 something black guy with a lip that appears to be either injured or he’s had a stroke? It’s for some company claiming they help to get people back on track or something like that. The guy says something like “I’ve made some mistakes and even committed CRIMES but I’m NOT a CRIMINAL”. REALLY? Committing crimes is the definition of a CRIMINAL in any dictionary. But they are trying to change the language and the definition of the word “CRIMINAL “. JUST like they are changing the definition of “male” or “female” among many others. It may be a little thing to you but that’s what the left is counting on. Just like they have done with “assault weapon “. 50+yrs ago the anti gun crowd (aka the Brady Bunch) did a survey to find a word or phrase they could use to scare people about certain guns. “Assault rifle/weapon ” was determined to scare people the most because it made them think “machine gun”. Especially people who have little to no knowledge of guns. And over time they succeeded in their goal of getting everyone to use an INCORRECT word or phrase to scare people. Tell me you don’t think “machine gun” or similar when you hear the moniker “assault weapon “. I still do sometimes. And it is a FALSE NAME because the FBI classifies the AR15 as a RIFLE because it does NOT meet the definition of an assault weapon. As long as WE keep using it and allowing others to it will become MORE normal as time passes. As I said just look at other words they have started changing the definition of.
No they can’t. Please stop fear mongering.
Sounded like someone is trying to please the MAN!
It is just another way for the government to keep the American people from protecting themselves against anybody especially them the ones that are in power they were making these stupid rules I understand the reasons behind them but it’s just another thing for government to take control over everybody’s life I’m still waiting for the Civil War to start
Please review your states laws regarding the above items. Some of this information is outdated. It’s okay as general guidelines, but not completely accurate for individual states. When I doubt about the legality of the aforementioned items, consult your states laws.
“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kinds of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted—and you create a nation of lawbreakers—and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
Truer words… Didn’t upvote because it’s true and I don’t like it. Didn’t downvote because I don’t want to give others the wrong impression. Stay safe.
Agreed -prosecutors must prosecute, and judges must judge. Or else they don’t have their cushy $$six-figure$$ salary, and King’s privileges.
Please attribute that quote properly:. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
You rule innocent men by consent. Barring that, as you said make everyone a criminal.
Mail in your ‘Withdraw of consent to be governed’ notice to your state and the feds.
I sent my state one. Waiting a bit to see how it goes before sending in the one to the Feds.
Be aware that you might lose your voting privileges and be places on a ‘list’.
Remember, governments STILL have to abide by their own laws, rules, codes, regulations, and mandates/orders.
Just that their power over you is supposed to be neutered.
NEVER say yes to any question that starts with ‘do you understand…’
If you do, you agree to ‘stand under’ their authority.
All statutes are commercial and apply to US Citizens, which most of us are not. If you are not in the military, or a fed employee, you are a living Americans. Change your Status to reflect that and kiss their fed laws good bye! Read the 14th Amendment and ask yourself, does that definition apply to me. Most likely, the answer is NO!
RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE TAKEN AWAY.
We are NOT U.S. CITIZENS
STATUTES ARE NOT LAW – TO BE CONVICTED UNDER A STATUTE YOU MUST HAVE MY CONSENT.
We do NOT GIVE OUR CONSENT EVER. We are NOT U.S. CITIZENS, i.e. We are living Souls and not a dead entity written in all upper-case letters on a piece of paper or bond paper being claimed as a vessel owned by another living or dead entity.
“The Supreme Court has warned, “Because of what appears to be Lawful commands [Statutory Rules, Regulations and -codes–ordinances- and Restrictions] on the surface, many citizens, because of their respect for what appears to be law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their rights, due to ignorance… [deceptive practices, constructive fraud, barratry, legal plunder, conversion, and malicious prosecution in inferior administrative State courts].” (United States v. Minker, 350 U.S. 179, 187, 76 S.Ct. 281, 100 L.Ed. 185 (1956);”
All codes, rules, and regulations are for government authorities only, not human/Creators in accord with God’s Laws. “All codes, rules, and regulations are unconstitutional and lacking due process of Law..”(Rodriques v. Ray Donavan, U.S. Department of Labor, 769 F.2d 1344, 1348 (1985)); …lacking due process of law, in that they are ‘void for ambiguity’ in their failure to specify the statutes’ applicability to ‘natural persons,’ otherwise depriving the same of fair notice, as their construction by definition of terms aptly identifies the applicability of such statutes to “artificial or fictional corporate entities or ‘persons’, creatures of statute, or those by contract employed as agents or representatives, departmental subdivisions, offices, officers, and property of the government, but not the ‘Natural Person’ or American citizen Immune from such jurisdiction of legalism.”
Is Randy A, the aurthor of this article, an ATF agent? And is Megatron a provocateur? Inquiring want to know.
I don’t know but I do know if they try using those ridiculous ideas being pushed by the “I’m a free citizen ” bunch they will only be arrested FASTER. You can have all the “beliefs” you want but I deal in reality. I have had to deal with some crazy people as a cop but the worst are the ones who are gullible enough to believe the BS being spread by them.
Please don’t use the left-wing language of assault rifle, high capacity magazine, and silencer.
Well the same people claim no army will use a ar15 in battle. Yet the m16 m4 is an ar15 with a 3rd hole and fa trigger group
Thats like saying a Camaro with a 4 cylinder is the same as a Camaro with a big block 500hp engine. NO Army in the world that I know of uses an AR15 as their main battle rifle. Some MIGHT use them for target practice but I’ve never heard of any. The biggest difference between an AR15 and an M4 or M16 is the selector switch. Full auto or 3 round burst is NOT available on the AR15. A few have TRIED to convert them to do that but its illegal for one thing and for another they generally don’t work well and/or fall apart fairly quickly. Bump stocks IMO are basically toys and ared useless unless you have taken timed to leadrn how they work and learfn to ujsed them correctly. Yes the guy in Vegas used them but how m,anmy others have you heard of. As for “high cap mags” and the MYTH you c an “rush someone an d take them down” if they only have a 10 round mag is BS. There is a video on Youtube of a Sheriff trying that very thing with pistols and rifles. And not one time were they able to successfully “rush someone” to take them out. And that includes using people fairly novice to using the weapons and making mag changes. Its simply more left wing anti gun propaganda trying to convince gun owners and non gun owners that you don’;t “NEED” certain weapons for personal use. Then there is the falsehood about the 2nd A is NOT about personally owning a gun and its only for militias. NOWHERE from our Founders will you find any of them say it was ONLY for militias. And the 2nd A has NOTHING to do with hunting. Its about defending ourselves against a tyrannical government like England was. “Oh so you are going to go against tanks and planes? Yep if necessary. I mean Afghanistan did and the most high tech weapons they had (after using only single shot muskets for years) were some RPG’s and Stingers. And they fought the Russians to a standstill. You don’t have to WIN you just have to make it be an untenable situation. Like the Viet Cong did to us.
I’ll take my chances. HAVING, these weapons might save lives. In most states, you can have most of these. And I’m even in the vernacular, it’s my right per constitution to bear arms, when needed. Who dictates how what or when? You, the reader? Authority? I’m free, not a terrorist? I judge myself. It’s trying to deprive me of my freedom, that’s when bad things happen. I’d rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
Be real here; most of the Ask A Prepper articles are informative and interesting.
Just call them what they are; MSR (Modern Sporting Rifle), after all, I have hunted with my AR.
The term shouldn’t be bad, isn’t an “Assault Rifle”, any rifle used to fend off an armed assailant?
I guess my 9mm could be considered an “Assault Pistol”, under the same scenario.
There are no longer restrictions on knives in Texas.
I can’t help but think that the legality of any of these things doesn’t much matter in the event that the S really Hits The Fan. There will be no law to worry about. Only survival. And quite frankly, having a silencer when predators are out hunting for food and supplies could very much be the difference between life and death. If you need to take out a scout silently, there is no better solution.
It’s funny that “silencers” are very restricted here. Not banned completely except in some states. You can own one after doing the paperwork and paying $200. But in European countries its almost mandatory to use them at ranges and for hunting to save your Hearing and be a good neighbor by not making much noise. Seems pretty backwards if you ask me.
There is no such thing. But I do like to use a suppressor on my 30.06. Predators have learned to come to the sound of firearms in some places. Kill a caribou, and 10 minutes later a bear shows up.
I have hearing loss from my time in the military. Electronic headphones are a blessing!
Dude, you are waaay out of date on Texas knife laws. They used to be some of the most restrictive in the country and classified some (usually by length or design, such as shuriken) as illegal knives. The law changed several years ago. There are no longer “illegal knives,” but there are now “location restricted knives.” You can walk around with a broad sword, Bowie, or machete if y’on’t to.
And of course the Texas License to Carry (open or concealed handgun) has the widest reciprocity with other states. You don’t have to be licensed to carry, but the penalties are usually felonies for non-license holders and misdemeanors for license holders. You can openly carry long guns.
so, a “Texas license to carry” is classified as a “misdeamor to carry” to a license holder?
About the only way you would be charged in Texas, is if you are waving your weapon around and threatening people. Matrix must live in a very rural part of Texas.
This article, including the comments, describes the American legal system for what it is; the most evil entity ever to be invented by humans; a system that seeks to deprive the innocent of the right to self-defense. The American legal system is far worse than the Ole English law under England’s King George III. Colonial Patriots fought the Revolutionary War to rid themselves of tyrants, only to have their own homegrown tyrants rise from patriotism and freedom’s ashes.
Having not read everyone’s comments I will just comment on the article. The admonition to know the laws where you live and also where you plan to travel are good. I am not suggesting you obey them just that you know them. It will help you know what to conceal and what not to worry about. When the nation collapses the rules will change so assume the worst and prepare for it. That way anything less will be a pleasant surprise. And remember they are not going to play by their own rules. And when the time comes to use them, do your worst because they need to fear you. In the war that is coming you will get no mercy so give none in return. If anyone watched the TV series “Revolution” it is a good commentary on how our world may devolve. It will be territories with warlords in control who rule with an iron fist and take what they want from those they rule. Speaking as someone who has been shot, stabbed, and burned, if you are going to lose the battle, go out in a hail of bullets, never surrender to be tortured later. Using torture humans make Hell seem like a vacation resort on the Riviera.
This is why I have certain information memorized and stored in my head other more complex things are stored on my phone laptop and a removable drive. I had hoped to never use said knowledge on fellow humans. As each day passes I see us slide a little closer to the SHTF scenario. Inocuous items now to own, knowledge and wisdom will be my saving grace.
Anyone know how what the laws are regarding stun guns? They seem to be sold a lot of places and I haven’t seen any articles regarding carrying them.
ditto: bb guns and arrows
Most people are smart and enough to look up the laws where they live. Then there are some, when caught, would say “ but I saw it on the internet!”
Each state is different ask you handheld computer called a smartphone
Good rule of thumb: if you own anything that can help you protect yourself in any way from any governmental entity, it most likely breaks some kind of law or ordinance enough to be “taken in for questioning”. Because the rule of law only applies to citizens, not anyone claiming to be “from the government”. So, make sure you acquire any and every self defense item you could possibly need, but ALSO make sure you do it in a roundabout manner. It’s getting a lot harder to do this, which is why these little rules are being quietly passed everywhere. Those who plan on taking power for themselves want to make sure in advance that the general populace is unarmed, unaware, and helpless as possible before they do so. These types of people only see only two kinds of people: themselves, and those that must be subjugated. If you do not fit into that category easily, then you are a target to be removed.
When using the term ‘assault rifle,’ yes, we all know what the person is referring to. Also, we all know that the person doesn’t know what they are talking about. I personally don’t mind being warned upfront: “I know nothing about guns and would like to take yours away.”
Oh wow. An article that confused me as much as it wasted my time. Please try harder.
Btw i know a guy who cc Dragons breath in a 410 thunder five. Not sure how well that would work out with a grand jury but I’m certain it would bbq a jogger on the spot.
It set someone’s clothes on fire and they need to clean the shotgun well after
What is an assault rifle??? The ATF doesn’t know.
An assault rifle is an adult human female.🤣
Sorry but this may have been the worst article I’ve ever read on this site! I don’t like to be critical but my God! It read like it was written by someone with no grasp of the English language and there was zero helpful information. I lasted maybe a fourth of it and gave up. Come on! This site can do better.
This was not an article for after , this was an article for before – to keep us out of prison before th SHTF. IF we have some of those items keep them hidden , DO NOT talk about them to Non- preppers or anyone that you don’t know or trust . AFTER the SHTF all bets are off
Much thanks for the warning! Before heading out of state (Arizona) I clean out the truck LOL. And try not to sound like an Arizona border rat. Ai, no, dude! yo, wassup wit y’all? 🙂 niio
only if she’s ugly–cuz then, it’d be addilitonally painful to the eyes
“Defensive Carbine” is a more accurate description.
Why isn’t it a offensive carbine.
Why do people get so upset. The rifle is designed to kill so what
Power Hole Punch is the more accurate name.
I think you meant “Powder Driven Hole Punch”.
If you’re not hoarding cannabis seeds, you are a fool.
Just remember that in today’s times…OPSEC…is crucial when you are a prepper and you are building a supply. In a true SHTF situation, most laws will go out the window. There may be a few over-eager LEO or National Guard wandering about looking to confiscate certain items or supplies in a more or less local or statewide emergency, but in a true nation-wide SHTF…we will mostly be on our own. Think OPSEC.
Morg, you are correct, the Megafool is an idiot, claims to be some sort of “tactical expert” but when I posted a link to commercially available tracer rounds, rather than thinking along the lines of “hey, I might be able to use these to start a fire in an enemy position from long distance”, he was complaining they might start a fire – well duh! that was the point, but the X-spurt isn’t smart enough to see alternate applications.
I won’t be turning in jack shit! This was a stoopid attempt at throwing guilt to folks who are not guilty. Our fuckin government is guilty. Any law repugnent to the Constitution of the United States is in fact NOT A LAW!!! I’m beginning to think some “fed bois” are running this site!
The only authority that government has is that which has been granted by the People they have sworn an oath to serve. We never gave these tyrants the authority to take away our means of self defense. Nor have we been granted a say (or a vote) in the matter.
It is the duty of every citizen to DISOBEY ANY UNCONSTITUTIONAL MANDATE OR LAW.
Never forget, these government employees are public servants, NOT our masters.
When the shiite hits the fan, the tyrants should be the first ones to receive the justice they so duly deserve.
Stop using “assault weapon” or “assault rifle” when you mean an AR-15. You sound like you’ve adapted the left’s narrative.
West Virginia not mentioned!
That is a good thing, because
