Purely hypothetical obviously at this point and time..
But if you are like me, you have reached out to people that you know and trust to try and form a group that will get together if the SHTF.
More time than not I have been met with, that will never happen no need to prepare... on occasion I have been told I will come to your place if it happens since I know you are preparing.
while talking with the wife I realized I do not know how I would deal with people I have known for years... I know the spouses and the kids... showing up at my door step with hat in hand looking for help.
To be perfectly honest I am counting on my wifes protective streak of family first, because I would have a hard time saying no to the kids... So at this moment we do not have a plan for this issue.
So the question is how will you handle people showing up looking for a handout because they knew you prepared and they didn't bother to?

They will turn into my slave.
The old post apocalypse ruler scenario, that never turns out bad.
Probably going to be a pretty short run for you.
Well, if you have spiritually prepped you'd help anyone asking.

Teach them to fish,hunt, gather herbs and build shelters…and defend. If apocalypse is anything like Walking Dead, more people in a clan will actually be good in the future.
