How Preppers Will Deal With the New Gun Laws
The proposed new gun laws can be looked at a number of ways by both preppers and survivalists, and it is really a matter of choice as to how you react. Preppers and survivalists try to be resourceful and resilient, and this 38 super ammo current 2nd Amendment crisis provides a great opportunity for us all to show our mettle.
So, at the risk of being thought of as being totally crazy and being an outcast in the prepper community, I would like to encourage everyone to look on the bright side of the proposed new gun laws coming to light.
First off, I want to say that I am a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and do NOT believe that the proposed new gun laws are anything but a thinly veiled attempt at disarming law-abiding Americans. However, I do believe in the prepper philosophy of taking a lemon and making lemonade, so I wanted to see how this current ‘problem’ could actually be made into an ‘opportunity.’
Increased NRA Membership
In the first month after talk of these new gun laws hit the press, the membership of the NRA increased by a quarter of a million people. That makes the strongest lobby in the country even stronger. Enough said.
Increased Opportunity To Educate Others
If it wasn’t’ for this issue of the proposed new gun laws dominating the news, we wouldn’t have so many opportunities to discuss the 2nd Amendment and even what SHTF is with our friends and neighbors. This whole debacle is a great opportunity to find out who else among our acquaintances is a gun owner and even who is a potential prepping partner.
Without this dominating the news, you would have to bring up these topics ‘out of the blue’ in order to do some “recon” and figure out who you could go to or count on during a crisis. So think of this current situation as a great intelligence-gathering opportunity.
Opportunity to Make Money For More Preps
This may be risky and controversial, but considering how many times in the past the politicians tried to do a gun grab and failed, if you are reasonably confident it will be a repeat, it could be a time to sell off some extra ammo from your stockpile at a profit.
