143. I have got a reality check for you
If society breaks down to the point where there is no law enforcement and there are roaming gangs of criminals killing and raping everything in their path, you are fucked. Regardless of whether or not you have 1 gun, 10 guns, or 100 guns, whether you have 1,000 bullets or a million bullets you are fucked. If we no longer can count on basic law enforcement, this country is over and no amount of weaponry is going to keep you any safer. The only thing keeping any of us safe in this country is the rule of law, if that breaks down, criminal cartels with more weapons than any of us could imagine would easily take everything over, its a fantasy for anyone to think that they would be able to protect themselves if society were to collapse.
