With approximately 310 million firearms, the United States of America is first among all nations in civilian firearm ownership. This works out to be approximately one firearm for every man, woman, or child in the nation. But because of multiple firearms owned by individual gun owners, less than half of the population actually owns a firearm.
No doubt, many of these American firearm owners were raised around guns. Like generations before them, they probably grew up target shooting and maybe even took up hunting as well. They were taught the safe handling, care, and storage of firearms from a very young age. They have taken those skills, expanded upon them, and will hopefully pass this tradition onto the next generation.
With over 20 million Americans unemployed and more people on welfare than working, the threat of losing your job is probably the most real, most possible threat anyone faces. What have you done to prepare for that?
When I started to prepare financially for unemployment or job loss, I thought I had a pretty good grasp of where I spent my money and who I owed money to. I was wrong.
How many people do you know have endured a pandemic and survived? How about a geomagnetic reversal? Zombie invasion?
The answer, for most if not all of us is, none. And that isn’t because we know people that didn’t prepare enough for those events and died. It is because these events (with the exception of zombies) rarely happen. Despite that glaring fact, there are lots of people out there preparing to endure these exact scenarios.
