I recently have been quized by one of my students about the bill of rights and whether I knew them or not. Being out ot school for a while and a science teacher, I spend more time on the scientific method than the bill of rights so with some hints I was able to recall the general list.
The one that was ironic of course was #2, the right to bear arms. I have recently been promoting a report called the Concealed Carry Report (which you can get free!) which goes into depth about everything you need to know before you leave your house while carrying a gun.
The irony comes of course in that in an article in the September 20, 2011 Syracuse, NY Post Standard, they talk about the changes coming about in the concealed carry laws of all states. The biggest change being the apparent reciprocity that will be allowed through all the states.
I personally do not own a gun, but do believe that you should be able to house them responsibly. As they say, Guns don’t kill people, stupid people do!
Having the proper education is important in regards to the proper use and storage of the gun as well. As the economy is going into shambles and people are worried about what might happen in the event of a financial crash, having a gun, might be a necessity.
If someone thinks they are going to come on my land and do harm to me for their benefit in times of disaster, financial crises etc., they have another thing coming their way. All you have to do is watch the news and see what happens in communities where these have occurred. Looting, theft, burrning places down etc. It is rather rediculous that humans would do this of course, but we all know that human nature can be nasty at times.
What is needed is then to be prepared for these events:
This is a new video by You Are Prepared president Greg Schmidt where he goes into some basic ideas and tips that will get you thinking along the preparedness theme to get yourself ready for what may come.
Currently there are four modules ready for community members dealing with financial crisis/investing, gun safety, disaster preparedness and home security.
In some of their introductory videos, there were as much as 1000 comments! It should be common sense to take care of these issues, but more often than not, people assume “it won’t happen to me” until it is too late. It is time to be proactive instead of the need to be reactive.
In addition to the concealed carry report I mentioned above, I am also helping Greg Schmidt to promote this new community and want to share my bonus for joining:
1) I will send you an ounce of silver to your door! Silver is expected to continue growth and at $40 an ounce currently this will be a nice little bonus that will grow over time (though I do not guarantee any growth at all, but heck, it will be sent to you at no additional cost to joining the community)
2) I will send you a DVD with some killer reports on internet safety, total safety and self defense.
So the question you have to ask yourself now is whether or not you are willing to learn and prepare, or if you want to deal with reacting when you might only have a few moments to spare?
