Unreasonable people will be homicidal early on in the event. eventually survival will be easier for the prepared and a high percentage of the prepared do not live in large cities.

Your ammo will only last so long...your food and water will only last so long
What are your fall back plans once that happens..
Or do you think you have enough ammo to take on everyone from all cities within 200 miles of your location and enough food and water to last years..
Eventually you will have to leave your cozy confines to get more supplies and that is when karma will come back and bite you in the ass..
Very true! People can learn to cast and reload bullets, and even make their own gunpowder...but does anyone know how to make a primer? This is why I think guns won't be a long-term option in a post-apocalyptic world.Bows/crossbows might be a more reliable long term solution for ranged weaponry.
We bugged out three years ago. The nearest town with over 100K people in it is 100 miles away. I feel safe out here, we are loosely knit in this area but will band together tightly when the time comes. It has already been discussed.
However, I have kids who live on the west coast, and that is very disturbing to me. I cannot convince them to leave the beach areas of Southern California. I cannot even convince them to prepare with extra water and food. They imagine they'll just hop in their cars and drive the 1200 miles out here to safety.
Dang it! I haven't watched that episode yet.
