These yahoos in Washington State think “preparing” for emergencies simply involves stocking up on guns and ammo to take other peoples’ supplies.
I wish them the best of luck.
In fact, it’s why I volunteer my time with groups like Appleseed and U.S. Rifleman’s Association, teaching everyday Americans the fundamentals of using their firearms effectively. Students can use those skills to defend themselves and their families in event of attack.
In fact, I’ve been doing this since before Tyler started puberty.
National Geographic’s ‘Doomsday Preppers’ visits Buckley survivalist group
Buckley, Washington (News-Tribune) – Nuclear war. Volcanic eruption. Terrorist attack.
Though the scenarios of how an apocalyptic event would paralyze or destroy society varies, a group of like-minded individuals in East Pierce County believes a good defense is the best way to prepare for doomsday.
And some believe a good offense is even better.
“We’re not in it to stockpile. We’re in it to take what you have and there’s nothing you can do to stop us,” Tyler Smith says. “We are your worst nightmare, and we are coming.”
Smith, 29, is the leader of Spartan Survival. The group has more than 80 dues-paying members. Smith founded the organization in 2005 to train and prepare others on survivalism.
Bring it, boy.
My guess is that the 80-some dues-paying members are going to evaporate after the first one or two spring leaks caused by high-velocity lead projectiles.
