When the Fight Comes To You: Why the Pump Is Primed For a Rural Conflict

I originally wrote this back in October. How are you using your time?

There’s a common misconception in the Survivalist community. “I’ll retreat…get away from the major population centers…work to live off the grid…and let the urban hellholes rot.

Well…about that.

Rural living is, for all intents and purposes, a better way to live. We’re more in tune with the natural world by and large, not in spite of it, and for the most part the lifestyle lends itself well to harder people used to doing without. And for people like me, there’s nothing that replaces the generations-deep connections to your homeland. The people there are your people- and in spite of differences, there is a deeply ingrained love of place. It is home.

Sounds good until the problems begin to bubble up. The first issue is questioning exactly how many in those rural areas are actually self-sufficient…

Flying Florida Thugs

(Liveleak) Surveillance video shows three armed people trying to break into a Florida home before the resident grabbed a gun and shot at them, according to police.

A Ring security camera caught three men breaking into a Neptune Beach home on Tuesday, followed by the sounds of gunshots being fired at them before they ran away.

“No matter who you are, this is a very scary situation,” said News4Jax crime and safety expert Ken Jefferson, a former Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office detective.

“This homeowner realizes he has the right to protect himself, and he pulls out his gun, and he begins to fire,” Jefferson said. “He’s well within justification to do that.”

Police said one suspect was shot in the chest and taken to a hospital, while the other two are still on the loose. Authorities have leads on tracking down the other suspects based on security footage of them jumping into getaway cars. The homeowner is not facing any charges.

Armed Vigilantes Impose Quarantine on Neighbor in Fear of COVID-19

 

As an Armed Citizen you can NEVER depend on local state or federal authorities to take care of you and your family/loved ones in an emergency.

That responsibility falls squarely on YOU.

As we get deeper into this mess and law enforcement and emergency response resources are spread more and more thin, incidents like this are going to become more and more common.

Prepare yourself NOW in all areas to Take Action if the need arises.
