Arm Thy Neighbor by Matthew Bracken

I am reluctant to contribute such things to someone who might possibly use them on me, but the truth is there is safety in numbers and one cannot patrol and post alone 24/7. Along these lines, if anyone has not read it, A Failure of Civility is an excellent "how to" for additional tips and tactics, especially pertaining to suburban settings.

Matt Bracken:

If you don’t presently own any firearms, you may have been considering taking that step in order to protect yourself and your family. Or perhaps you already have what you consider to be an adequate home armory, but is it really enough? In the event that our economy tanks, one certain outcome will be much higher levels of criminal violence. Read Fernando Aguirre’s excellent “The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse,” based on his experiences in Argentina after 2001, to see what happens to civil society when a national currency collapses and the banks are closed. Today’s career criminals will be that much more desperate and willing to use violence against their victims. The feral youths who need little encouragement to bust heads for sport in times of relative plenty may be starving, and no moral consideration will keep them from sticking a gun in your face or a knife in your back.

At the same time, the federal government may define this surge of criminal violence as civil disorder and enact emergency decrees, especially if armed citizens begin to fight back on a wide scale. One need look no further than the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to see how officials react toward ordinary people with firearms during a period of civil disorder. A freeze on gun sales and/or ammunition is a predictable outcome during government-defined “emergencies.”

  1. Ammo is life.....

  2. Nice to see ya Matt. Any word from Z on his new project?

  3. Registration leads to confiscation…..

  4. If Matt is telling us he will purchase a gun in his name and then transfer it to another person he has admitted he will violate federal and/or state transfer laws. This will likely, in the near future, get him a visit from the powers that be to confiscate all his weapons for promoting unlawful weapons transfer, and or admitting to planning to do such. I don't disagree with his premise, but admitting that is why you are purchasing some of your weapons likely has violated current law in the eyes of the right authorities.
