(TargetLiberty.org) – Although our country has long been at odds over Second Amendment rights, your gun could save your life in a crisis situation. Destructive events like terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and viral pandemics make us realize just how vulnerable we are. Having a gun to protect yourself could be the difference between life and death.
Consider the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. While communities did pull together, personal protection from the handful of bad apples was especially important. When there’s a crisis, one quickly realizes that law enforcement won’t necessarily be there when you need them. At times like this, it’s up to you to keep your family safe.
However, that’s far from the only way guns can save your life. In today’s world, we are used to the convenience of grocery stores around every turn. But what would you do if that changed?
We often don’t comprehend just how quickly the way of life we are accustomed to could vanish. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t take all that much for our society to become radically different.
Being Prepared for the Unexpected
There are many things that we take for granted in the modern world. For instance, virtually everyone is used to having a well-stocked and operational grocery store nearby. What if that changed at the drop of a hat?
In the worst-case scenario, you might have to rely on your firearm to secure the supplies you and your family need. Gun owners will have an easier time adapting to a dog-eat-dog world that could result from extreme scarcity levels. The saying “no society is more than three meals away from revolution” holds some weight in this sort of a catastrophic situation.
If you have a gun, you could avoid the chaos of scarcity entirely and hunt for your own food.
COVID-19 Might Create Mass Scarcity
The coronavirus outbreak has given us a glimpse of just how tenuous our way of life really is. No one ever wants to think about the “worst-case scenario” in that kind of situation. But, preparing for the worst now can help you be ready when the unexpected happens.
How do you prepare for something like this? Beyond making sure you have plenty of ammunition on hand, the most basic answer is to learn as much as you can about hunting. Investing some time into target practice is also a good idea.
Don’t stop there. It never hurts to learn about trapping either. Spending a little time on the water to make sure your fishing skills aren’t rusty is always a good way to spend an afternoon.
When our forefathers founded this country, they gave us the right to bear arms. By doing this, they ensured that Americans would be able to protect themselves and their families. Giving up our Second Amendment rights would make all of us less safe.
