Some of you have hit on good points, but here is food for thought.
Most Americans have lost the ability, knowledge and will, to defend themselves. How many people here have been in a physical altercation? How many
have had to defend themselves as an adult? Could you do what may need to be done to defend yourself or your family?
There is a segment of our society that is rougher, tougher, more willing and able than most. They learn from a young age if you want something, you
will have to fight for it. That goes for respect, power, property or whatever. They are further educated as adults on how to lie, cheat, fight,
intimidate, exploit weakness and to survive in situations most of us would never want to be in.
I will refer to them as the criminal element.
According to some information, the California penal system (State Prison) has over 170,000 inmates with who knows how many on parole. And who knows
how many inmates are in the county jails and or probation.
What is going to happen with the criminal element? Will they be let out, shot in their cells or left to die. I don’t know.
I do know when SHTF, they will be the biggest threat, not your hybrid driving neighbor or the kid with the xbox down the street.
Oh and another thought, what will happen to the US, when we have a less than impressive military? Will invasion by what we see now as “3rd world”
countries become an issue. Remember they are less likely to be affected by a breakdown of technology and such as we are.
