Tough one. You ask a very good question here I'd like everyone understand.
All us First Responders, FEMA and HOMELAND SECURITY and ERT members everyone is afraid of dragging you off to "camps"? We all have families... And in that time...I wouldn't be afraid of us coming to help you.
We too are firearm owners, and most have families at home with weapons. I have 450 team members on our Emergency Response Team. 3/4 of us have permits and carry ourselves.
1 owns a gun shop, and another is an NRA training instructor, and several are police officers and in other areas of law enforcement. But, Im thinking I don't know of even ONE of us...who would turn in or give up our own weapons.
We TOO are afraid that in a Marshall Law scenario...the military will come and take ours as well.

And I too carry Defender PDX+1/124 gr hollow points in my own home firearm. Means ditty.
Doesn't matter at this point. If you haven't learned to live without...it's too late.
So an engineered crisis takes place...big deal. We all collectively had years to prepare for any type of scenario, be it economic, social or natural. The past teaches us how to live and learn the skill sets to avoid future mistakes. If we haven't learned by now to be self-sufficient, then we have no one else to blame but ourselves. We all had the time to learn. But did we use it wisely?
Being prepared doesn't qualify someone as being a "conspiracy theorist loony". It means that instead of wasting the last few years watching TV, spending money on frivolous things, being consumed with social media, or just outright spending time being a brain-washed consumer zombie...but instead planning how to grow food, maintain a community, staying healthy and active, keeping stock of non-perishables and water, basically learning how to survive without the "grid".
So that if the inevitable takes place, we are ready not worried. The coming "collapse" means nothing because we have learned to live without their system.
oh wait....not everyone has paid attention...too bad...such a shame.
