I don't live with the expectation that this will happen, but I do prepare for it, just in case it does. I would not want to kill someone in order for me to survive, but make no mistake, my survival instinct is just as strong as anyone's, and if I had to do it, I would.
    Our area proved in 2004 that the killing wouldnt start in a few days. Dont take what you see on TV as gospel.

    Since the Internet would go down, probably most people would rather just die anyway. What would be the point of living?

    That's not what I asked. You were talking about deterrence.

    Anyway, this bloodthirstiness on your part . . . well, I hope it's just bravado.

    Camo and a long rifle? Man up. Use a knife or spear. At least then you earned it.

    Re: "American Blackout" thread

    Very interesting thread.
    If someone was trying to do harm to me to get what I have, I've got no problem defending myself to their detriment. But there is no way I have it in me to bring harm to someone else just to take from them what I need. I also know I couldn't sleep at night knowing my neighbor's children went to bed cold and hungry. Ain't going to happen. Yes I am stocking up for a rainy day(s) but what I have will be shared till its gone. Not sharing would mean I was already dead and just need someone to put an end to my misery

    Many things happen... sometimes they are caught, sometimes killed and sometimes they kill and get away with it. That possibility rises drastically in a lawless survival situation too...
