Talk about the new gun laws is all over the news and the internet, but the reality is that most preppers and prepping activities will be largely unaffected. How can that possibly be? Well, let’s take a good look at preppers and prepping and how the new gun laws will really affect them.
First off, the majority of a prepper’s activities don’t even involve guns. That is because prepping is primarily about supplying yourself and your family with the items you need to survive a catastrophe for an extended period of time without expecting any help from the government.
If you are doing your job as a prepper, your need for guns is minimal for two reasons. First, you are exercising good “operational security” and are not talking to everyone about your preps. The first rule of prepping is to keep quiet about what you are doing so that every one in the neighborhood isn’t knocking down your door when a catastrophe happens and they aren’t prepared.
Second, every prepper out there already has firearms and self-defense taken care of. The reason is that, even though food and water are higher on the priority list for prepping, nobody can resist the urge to indulge his prepper fantasies preparing his little arsenal. So all the preppers out there already have this base covered.
Since the new gun laws won’t really affect the preppers too much, the question you should ask yourself is where are you in your preparations for a natural catastrophe or civil unrest?
If you have food and other supplies stocked up, you will be able to have the luxury of staying in the safety of your home when there is chaos in the streets instead of going out into what becomes a food riot.
So, if the new gun laws cause you to take action and make a firearms purchase and get some extra ammunition more quickly, then that will be good for you. However, don’t let it all distract you from job one: getting food and other supplies readied.
