I think a better way to get people involved and prepared is to stay sane and balanced in our approach so that people don't fly off on extremes.
Rand Paul stated that there are laws on the books that classify you as a potential terrorist if you store food or ammo. As far as I am aware that was a DOJ intelligence report not a law that that came from, and it outlined characteristics of known terrorists from the past as potential red flags for the future.
I am with Rand Paul on his opposition to the bill in question, but it is fear tardedness to overstate or flat out lie about the facts to get people all worked up in support of your position.
If your going to get worked up about something at least get your facts straight.
