Home Defense: 'If You Can’t Protect It, You Don’t Own It'

“If you can’t protect it, you don’t own it;” this popular prepping phrase describes the mentality the unprepared have about you and your preps. I’m not saying it’s fair that people could steal from you, but it’s a reality, and a concern you should not take lightly. The fact is that crime seems to escalate in the aftermath of a disaster; something we have seen with many disasters, and as recently as Hurricane Isaac.

Over the last year, we have discussed how important it is for security measures to be in place especially during and following a wide-spread disaster. In an earlier newsletter written on the subject of external security measures, I wrote, “a ‘bug in’ scenario may be our only choice after a disaster strikes and we must prepare not only for our basic needs, but also for our safety. Since the grid may be down following a disaster, each household should prepare for crime.”

This should all be stuff we know and have implemented or are in the process of doing.

A good refresher.

Time is short.

Stay Safe.

  1. Interesting but poorly informed. You have to jump through the government hoops before you can legally own an "assault rifle" or any other fully automatic weapon. The AKs, SKSs and ARs available at your local pawn shop or gun store ARE NOT assault rifles, to call them such is begging the anti-gun fanatics to redouble their efforts to get semi-automatic guns banned.
