I'd do what I had to do to ensure the survival of my family. If that includes taking your # , let me say sorry in advance. Fortunately I'm pretty set up as far as preps.

Surviving is NOT looting.
In a SHTF scenario, if you are stealing TVs, Rims, and DVD's, then you are looting. If you are foraging for food and water, then you are surviving.
There is a lot of gray area in between the two. It seems perfectly acceptable to forage in an abandoned big box store, but what about a mom and pop store that seems partially secured and occupied? I'd think NO.
But, really, when it comes down to living or dying, I'd have no problem using violence to help my own family survive, but I hope I am prepared enough in advance to keep from getting to that point.
