I'm working on a theory... right now, it's called 'arms equity'.
For example- in Canada, not many own what can be called 'combat' arms- mostly hunting rifles and shotguns, along wtih some target weapons. Given the
restrictions on firearms, an M1 Garand or an SMLE can be considered the pinnacle of legal firepower permitted. Were I to own one, I'd be one of
perhaps twenty-five or fifty non police firearms owners in my town of 160,000. It could be said the arms-equity is much more in my personal favor.
In any given town in the states, this is not the situation. There is a fair chance that multiple people on your street have firearms, and they may be
high-capacity assault rifles like yours. If the SHTF, I'd much rather be the only guy with a gun for miles around, for obvious reasons.I don't know
who I can trust, who's got aims of megalomania, or what. I don't know who's a criminal, who's not, and I'm not fond of taking chances. The arms
equity is much more spread out. It favors the many, instead of me and my plans to rabbit.
If I was planning to stick it out and knew my community, I'd be all for sandbagging my subdivision and forming a small community. But, I don't, so I
won't, so to the hills I go. Tell me what you all think.
