“In most civilised countries, the connived massacre events have resulted in serious gun control.
Even now, air rifles & pistols have to be logged by the vendor, even though firearms certificates aren’t necessary, which they are for all other guns.
So, the only options left for small game is either bows, slings or airguns.”

Manipulative & suggestive coverage by Germany’s ARD (Consortium of public broadcasters in Germany) “Panorama” show against (probably) totally innocent preppers.
Looks like the German government does not want more people to become aware that something isn’t right in this world and to prepare for what is definitely coming.
The German government might storm your home under any made up pretext now.
The coming (planned by TPTB) financial collapse will be followed by (planned) civil war in Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Britain, etc.
It is very wise to prepare for what is coming.

On of the more famous GSG 9 missions (according to Wikipedia) has been…
“October 17–18, 1977: Lufthansa Flight 181 was hijacked by four Palestinian terrorists demanding the release of Red Army Faction (RAF) members. GSG 9 officers stormed the aircraft on the ground in Mogadishu, Somalia, and freed all 86 hostages, killing three terrorists and capturing the remaining one.”

A couple of weeks ago, in early January, there was a relatively minor storm in the South and Southeast U.S. Cold weather, threat of the power going out, snow and ice and empty store shelves.
This wasn’t the big one. And yet it was enough to bring things to a panic.
If this is how people react to an extreme cold spell, then what happens when something major hits?
ReadyNutrition Readers, this article is a “trumpet call” to continue your preparations, or to commence with them if you have not done so already. We don’t know what the inauguration is going to bring, if indeed it does occur peaceably. For one thing, everyone and their brother on the Left has threated everything possible, such as mass demonstrations, mass disruptions, and physical violence against the incoming president. The bottom line: we don’t know what will happen, and it is best to remain in a state of readiness and preparation.
I’m also going to explain something of my own mindset regarding matters toward preparation. With some of the pieces I have written, there have been a good deal of disparaging comments, especially directed toward pieces with recommendations for tools, equipment, food, and on-the-spot preps from bargain sources and Dollar stores.
The reason I have suggested things such as small tool kits and “piecemeal” equipment from thrift shops or the Dollar Trees is that there are tremendous numbers of readers that are either just starting out prepping or are on a limited budget…so limited that they can do it no other way.
I fully understand there are some people who cannot afford laser rangefinders, Gerber Multi-tools, or Fat Max Stanley tape measures. I suggest alternatives for them. Know what? Here’s the bottom line on that:
None of us are going to be completely prepared when the bottom drops out. Knowledge and skills should be desirous over materials, because with these you can either acquire what is needed or improvise out of what can be fabricated into something useful.
Obama just recently signed Executive Order 12333 into play. This one removes the restrictions over the intelligence-gathering agencies regarding the sharing of information pertaining to terrorist suspects, ad infinitum. There is also mention of procedures that reinforce previous NDAA policies of taking any and all actions necessary against terrorists, whether they are actual or potential. In essence, the EO hands over the unchecked power to snoop into the hands of soon-to-be president Donald Trump.
– The Congressman Who Went Off the Grid (Politico, Jan 3, 2014):
When Roscoe Bartlett was in Congress, he latched onto a particularly apocalyptic issue, one almost no one else ever seemed to talk about: America’s dangerously vulnerable power grid. In speech after late-night speech on the House floor, Bartlett hectored the nearly empty chamber: If the United States doesn’t do something to protect the grid, and soon, a terrorist or an act of nature will put an end to life as we know it.
Bartlett loved to conjure doomsday visions: Think post-Sandy New York City without power—but spread over a much larger area for months at a time. He once recounted a conversation he claimed to have had with unnamed Russian officials about how they could take out the United States: They would “detonate a nuclear weapon high above your country,” he recalled them saying, “and shut down your power grid—and your communications—for six months or so.”
Bartlett never gained much traction with his scary talk of electromagnetic pulses and solar storms. More immediate concerns always seemed to preoccupy his colleagues, or perhaps Bartlett’s obsessions just sounded more like quackery than real science, even coming from a former Navy engineer who had worked on the space race. Whatever the reason, Congress’s failure to act is no longer Bartlett’s problem. The octogenarian Republican from western Maryland—more than once labeled “the oddest congressman”—found himself gerrymandered out of office a year ago and promptly decided to take action on the warnings others wouldn’t heed, retreating to a remote property in the mountains of West Virginia where he lives with no phone service, no connection to outside power and no municipal plumbing. Having failed to safeguard the power grid for the rest of the country, Bartlett has taken himself completely off the grid. He has finally done what he pleaded in vain for others to do: “to become,” as he put it in a 2009 documentary, “independent of the system.”
– 50 Shocking Questions That You Should Ask To Anyone That Is Not A Prepper Yet (Economic Collapse, Jan 16, 2013):
Share this list of shocking questions with everyone you know that needs to wake up. Sometimes asking good questions is the best way to get someone that you care about to understand something. When I attended law school, I became very familiar with something called “the Socratic method”. It is a method that has been traditionally used in law schools all over the United States. Law professors will bombard their students with questions, and the goal is to stimulate critical thinking and allow students to discover the answers for themselves. Many times those of us that can see what is happening to this country get frustrated when we try to get others to see what is so apparent to us. But instead of preaching to them, perhaps asking questions would be more helpful. When you ask someone a question, they are almost forced to think about what you just said and come up with a response. And without a doubt, the fact that America is in decline is undeniable. Those that would choose to blindly have faith in the system are foolish, because it is glaringly obvious that the system is failing. Our economy is heading for collapse and the world around us is becoming more unstable with each passing day. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that the number of preppers in the United States is absolutely exploding. Some estimates put the number of preppers in the U.S. as high as 3 million, and the movement continues to explode.
So exactly what is a “prepper”? Well, the truth is that there is a tremendous amount of diversity among the people that fall under that label.
