Survival Sunday

This week leaves me without a lot to report. I spent all of my work time and a good chunk of my personal time working through a health care administration course for work. It was hours upon hours of taking data, lots of data, and putting it together to make something meaningful out of it. It was worthwhile and will be helpful at work but to be honest, this type of work is not always of great interest to me. What is important is that my family is taken care of, just like prepping.

Next Thursday (July 16th) at 8 pm EDT is the Sun Oven Cooking Essentials class. Have you signed up yet? It’s not too late if you haven’t. Register here if you would like to learn how to use the power of the sun to cook, bake, dehydrate, and even purify water. I’ll see you there!

Here are my favorite finds this week:

When The Trucks Stop Delivering, ‘The System’ Will Collapse – It is not a surprise that if trucks stopped rolling down the interstate, the logistics in the country would come grinding to a halt. There are many threats that could cause such a catastrophe. Here is a look at how it might happen and what it might look like.

No Firefighters, No Power & You Have A Fire – Fire is a big threat if you are not careful. This is especially true if you heat your house with fire. What would you do if 911 was not available. Better yet, plan now so that your risk of fire is as low as possible.

21 Prepper Tips I Wish I’d Heard BEFORE I Started Prepping – Getting prepared is not always about what you do. Sometimes it is about how you do it. A little bit of planning can go a long way and these tips are great points to review, whether you are just getting started or have been at it for a while. All of these tips are good but I think that #21 is my favorite.

25 Terrible Truths About TEOTWAWKI – It is worth considering the fact that some of the realities of prepping include ongoing research and redesign of your plans and processes. This list is worth taking a look at.

10 Tips For Bugging Out To The Country – There are many prepping types that like the idea of ditching the urban or suburban environment and bugging out to the country if things get rough. These ten tips could be useful if you would like to make the country your post-apocalyptic refuge or if you live in the country and find others wanting to make your home their refuge.

Not surprisingly, in the wake of the Charleston, SC shootings, Gun Sales Reached Record Highest Last Month

There is no shortage of madness in the world:

Seattle Councilman Proposes Ridiculous Firearm & Ammo Tax – Seattle City Council President Tim Burgess proposed a solution to pay for the violence that occurs in the Emerald City, a $25 tax on all firearms sold and 5 cents on every bullet. That’s a method but is that really the best way? Will they also tax illegally obtained firearms? I wouldn’t be surprised to see more liberal strongholds try this tactic.

New MTV Show Publicly Shames White People For “What They’ve Done In America” – Just read it and weep.

School Threatens To Take Kids If Parents Are Late For Pickup – Sadly, this is the school district where I got all of my education. It was great then. I wonder what happened to it.

That’s a wrap for me this week. As always, I hope that you all have had a great week and keep getting ready for tough times. It seems like we get closer every day to something unfortunate coming along.

If you found something that you would like to share with the group or have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me at tom@thepreparedninja.com.

Come back next week for another edition of Survival Sunday.

How To Know If Owning A Gun Is Right For You…A Quiz

I know several people that think that gun ownership is not right for them. Do you know what I think about this? Fine. If you don’t want to own a gun then that is your right, but you dang sure should not interfere with my right or anyone else’s right to own firearms. That is how I feel about that. But what should you do if you are not sure about whether or not you should own a gun? I compiled a few questions in quiz format to contemplate if you find yourself unable to decide. After completing the quiz, total up your score based on your answers and compare the score to the key at the end.

1. Are there any threats to me, my family, or my property in the local area? (Yes – 2 Points, No – 0 Points)

2. Is there the potential for any threats to develop in my local area as a result of key events like natural or man made disasters? (Yes – 1 Point, No – 0 Points)

3. Do I feel that my life or the life of my loved ones is something that I should be able to defend if the need arises? (Yes – 1 Point, No – 0 Points)

4. Can I afford to be a victim, either physicially, emotionally, and/or financially? (Yes – 0 Points, No – 2 Points)

5. Are there any restrictions that might prevent gun ownership based on the type of property (apartment, condo, etc.) that I live in? (Yes – 1 Point, No – 0 Points)

6. Do I live in an area that limits the kind of firearm that I can own? (Yes – 1 Point, No – 0 Points)

7. If I choose not to have a gun is there another means of defense that will be even remotely as effective? (Yes – 0 Points, No – 2 Points)

8. Can I afford to obtain a gun, ammunition, cleaning kit, and the range time required to be proficient with my chosen gun? (Yes – 1 Point, No – 0 Points)

9. Am I trained or do I know where I can get trained in how to properly use a gun? (Yes – 1 Point, No – 0 Points)

0 – 5 Points = You did not answer the questions honestly. Go back and try again!

6 – 8 Points = You should give some serious thought to obtaining a firearm for defensive purposes as well as for securing your future and the ones that you care about.

9 or More Points = Without hesitation you should begin the steps to purchasing a firearm today.
