What law? The law unfortunately is all but a joke now, a farce, unlawful law. Time is just ticking, another shot heard around the world.
I like the air horn idea. Most criminals will run away -- and look for an easier target.In all honesty, at this time unless you're in a warzone area, the best defense is noise. You can buy a basic alarm system off Amazon for $200ish. Have an aerosol horn on your night stand. Thieves are cowards and will run if you make loud noises and acknowledge their presence.
This is likely only going to be effective for a few more months or maybe a year until the civil war gets hot. Everyone with the means to do so needs a firearm, preferably a pistol with hollowpoint ammunition, to defend themselves. You MUST train on weapon retention or they WILL take it from you.
Partner up with a friend and practice. Watch these videos but know that watching videos does not build muscle memory you must do it yourself repeatedly.
Gun sales reportedly reached a record high in July, which saw an increase in sales of 133% compared to last year, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Gun sales have hit record-highs for 5 consecutive months, and gun companies have seen a surge in profits. Sturm, Ruger & Company announced Thursday that they had tripled their earnings and increased net sales by $43, 536,000 this year, and Smith & Wesson Brands Inc. reported a 32.9% increase in net sales in the fourth quarter of 2020, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Sturm, Ruger & Company CEO Chris Killoy called it a “staggering increase in demand.”
“Having been in this industry for 30 years, I saw the surge in 1994 before the assault weapons ban took place,” he said. “This is probably the strongest level of demand that I’ve seen.”
“One of the most significant differences is how it has impacted all levels of the channel and the impact on inventory at all levels,” he added.
Killoy said that concern about protection during the coronavirus pandemic and ongoing protests, along with calls to defund the police, are contributing to the rise in firearm sales.
While many businesses suffered due to forced closures during the pandemic, Killoy said that his company “never lost a day of production.”
“We had some impacts to individual lines for a shift or two, but in all cases, we’re able to keep all of our factories open and operating. The demand was solid throughout,” he added. “We got used to dealing with COVID-19. And our practices and procedures really solidified and we were able to become much more of a routine.”
Where? Everything is shut down.Clint Emerson's books, like "100 Deadly Skills", are a must if you want to face the music, if the shit hits the fan. There are plenty of other very interesting books to read too, but I won't list them here.
I'm 49, and I only began practicing martial arts after a girlfriend dumped me, in December of 2018. I should have done that long ago. I practice Shinkyokushin since January 2019 and Yoseikan Budo (a lesser known martial art in which we use bokkens and other practice weapons) since January 2020.
My advice to younger readers? Start learning martials arts ASAP.
