    I think most rational people will be able to find a middle ground. Something like trying to maintain a week or two worths or food, water, and necessities on hand. Maybe plant a few squash or tomatoes instead of flowers this year.

    Or just keep your normal guying patterns that the US supply system is geared to meeting.

    Of course

    Indeed would you not expect this ?



    I was suggesting that the effects of a disaster would be less if people kept their normal buying patterns.

    And even if we do have supermarkets, some people like to go fishing instead of buying fish at the supermarket, same thing with people who prefer to hunt instead of buying meat at the supermarket.

    Its an excuse only in your mind. For most of the rest of us it is a legitimate justifiable reason. Self defense is the number one reason for owning guns.

    You've been listening too much to Joe Biden, the guy is a buffoon and he is now facing sexual assault allegations. A double barreled shotgun, or for that matter any long gun, can be hard to maneuver with in tight spaces. You can move much faster with a handgun. And most of all handguns are much more portable than long guns, a double barreled shotgun isn't something you would carry on your person while you're going about your day to day business.

    Its a good thing you don't get to decide who gets to be President.

    So if John Kennedy was alive would he be a better President than Trump? He was a Democrat.

    So you've known more people whose houses or apartments have caught fire than people who have had home invasions. That's just what you've seen which is not everything. The fact remains that you are three times as likely to have a home invasion as you are to have a house fire.

    You can? How do I get such insurance? Do you have a link?

    Only in a national emergency, such as our current crisis.

    I don't know about where you live but the local supermarkets here are doing great business

    Soon we'll reach saturation point and people will be buying less

    We are not going to become a nation of hunter-gathers
    However much it is the wet dream of preppers that the apocalypse is upon us

    Compared with the Clown "grab them by the pussy" that inhabits the WH right now ?
    Next to Trump, Biden is a Nobel Prize winner

    A shotgun and a pistol take up roughly the same amount of space when aiming at a target.

    There's a rather aggressive poster on here called RF - he like baiting people and when I said a shotgun wasn't "portable" he uttered howls of derision and claimed his was able to carry a shotgun down the street
    I mentioned that this isn't the case in places where guns are banned but he entered it into his signature on here


    Come to think of it, I think you've "liked" his posts before....


    Better President than Hillary? Yes I agree.

    A rock would be a better president than Trump.

    Hilary would have made an excellent resident IMO, infinitely better than the clown we currently have


    Its a good thing you don't get to decide who gets to be President.
    It's a sad thing that there are so many nationalists in the USA that do



    So if John Kennedy was alive would he be a better President than Trump? He was a Democrat.
    Of the 44 presidents that the USA has had, 43 of them would be better than Trump, if they were alive today and at the same age they were when first elected.


    When somebody breaks into a house when the occupants are home.
    You've just described an Aggravated Burglary (or Robbery/Rape/Murder)


    The fact remains that you are three times as likely to have a home invasion as you are to have a house fire.

    So lock your doors and windows and be safe...also don't smoke, but if you must, don't smoke inside, especially in bed.


    You can? How do I get such insurance? Do you have a link?
    Seriously you were unable to do a Google search? Took me about 5 seconds...


    How Alien Abduction Insurance Works


    The only one having a wet dream is you, and its a wet pipe dream.
    You don't know what a "wet dream" is do you ?

    Obviously you can't discriminate between one and a "Pipe Dream"


    Only in a national emergency, such as our current crisis.

    So all it takes it El Presidente to say there's an emergency and boom, we have federal troops on US streets

    Would you be willing to have other constitutional safeguards and rights able to be overruled like that ?
    Seriously ?

    Maybe US citizens can have their right to bear arms suspended, ONLY, if there's a national emergency.

    Edit:

    I spoke too soon, Trump's AG has already asked Congress if they'll approve legislation that would suspend constitution rights, like due process of an arrest person to be charged and face trial:

    Still think Trump's your hero ?

    Some people are hunter-gatherers, some people like to farm and hunt and fish for food even if they can buy their food.

    A silly misconception of yours and of all the leftist snowflake softies.

    No its not, guns are used millions of times by some estimates every year in self defense and most of the time a shot is not fired.

    I see you've linked a video by James Yaeger. I've met James Yaeger myself and I can tell you he is not a credible source.

    It all depends on how you place your hands. Depending on the position where you place your hands you can easily get much more room with a handgun than you can with a shotgun. And maneuvering a shotgun is always going to be more awkward and slower than maneuvering a handgun.

    A shotgun certainly is portable but a handgun is more portable, its smaller, weighs less, and is less awkward to carry.

    You might or might not be able to carry a shotgun down the street depending what the laws are where you're at, but I will say this much, lots of places prohibit the carry of long guns even if they allow the carry of handguns, all the more reason people should be allowed to own handguns.

    Well it must suck for you that this big rockhead who was running for POTUS, Michael Bloomberg, is no longer running. He's got a rock for a brain. Then again so does Joe Biden.

    Well Kennedy was a democrat, and he was very much for gun rights. Generally I don't like democratic presidents but for Kennedy I would make an exception.

    Those are good guidelines to follow and I follow them but that doesn't mean home invasions, or for that matter house fires, can't happen.

    I know what a wet dream is and I know what a pipe dream is and I also know its possible to have a wet dream that's also a pipe dream. As a matter of fact I would say most wet dreams are pipe dreams.
