“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms” – Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776. The mindset of the founding fathers were clear. It is necessary for people to arm themselves to protect their right to life. Lately it seems that many politicians in the United States have forgotten the constitution as they have tried continuously to make it harder for people to protect themselves.
It should be expected that this attack on the 2nd amendment will continue until they have won. So then as a prepper you should expect that day to come. Until then preparations need to be taken.
Any future gun ban will be founded on the Clinton Assault Weapon Ban of 1994 as a foundation. This will be the minimum. Not only were certain guns banned in this law but also certain features which they characterized as military style weapons.
This is because if they cannot ban every gun then they will ban certain features making it almost impossible to buy a semi-auto rifle. All this was in disguise of lowering the crime rate. However an official report stated that they “…cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence (An Updated Assessment of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban: Impacts on Gun Markets and Gun Violence).”
Lately there has been another big propaganda push to ban guns and owner’s rights. This of course has been pushed by liberals claiming that criminals who commit shootings will obey laws if they are passed. However, we have seen that mostly all mass shootings have happened in gun free zones which were supposed to allegedly protect people.
In light of that preppers need to be aware of what the gun grabbers will be targeting. That way you will be well armed and able to protect yourself. It will also be useful to prepare for an SHTF scenario that happens after a gun ban. This post will not go over the guns that you need but gun parts. Now I’m not a firearms expert but these are only my suggestions.
