    Of course, I discussed this junk...at least to a point. Read my first post. But nowhere in my first post did I say anything about forum members who are discussing this junk.

    Don't be so defensive, dude.

    I'm not positive, but it seems to me that you are posting this to somehow cast her as a nutjob.

    Since when has preparing for disaster become a sign of being a nutjob?

    So, she had guns. NSS (No **** Sherlock). Take a look at Katrina, Sandy, hell just about any major broad area disaster, there has been raping, looting, murder, theft, etc. So she had handguns, again NSS. Have you ever tried to work with a rifle strapped to your back or stay within easy reach of it? That is the major reason Cowboys and others in the past carried a handgun, it made it readily available and allowed you do other things at the same time, not to mention, usually much lighter to carry. Even today, if I have to go to remote areas to fix fencing or do other chores, a rifle is too cumbersome. A handgun, you strap it on and go, knowing it is always there and in easy reach.

    If only she wasn't a prepper, she might still be alive.

    I'm not defensive, I think it's funny when people engage in cognitive dissonance. The very fact you are here telling people they should wait before they believe initial reports coming out IS engaging in the discourse.

    And what's even funnier is how you believe the official report is going to tell the whole truth.

    That isn't the issue though, is it? The issue is how her beliefs might have influenced her obviously compromised son.

    Based on MSNBC Saturday, she thought the economy was going to tank and was stockpiling in case it did. She was already a gun enthusiast. per the report. Based on some things I heard today, she was really a good person who struggled as a parent with her son's issues as best that she could, and is as every bit as much of a victim of her son as everybody else is. Take it however you want to take it.

    Uhhh, no. I posted an article of an interview with her seemingly close sister. Whether or not she was a nutjob is up to reader but personally I think that horse has left the barn.
