It becomes a "compound" when we either 1) Introduce religious overtones 2) refuse to leave and refuse others the chance to leave or 3) Have kids in the mix that can be exploited to the media as being abused.

Now, if this was a SHTF scenario, I don't think we have a problem since everyone will be out for themselves.

However, in normal, modern life I don't know if I would like to be in that environment to be honest. You risk attracting some of the fringe weirdos out there that are looking for a shoot out with the feds. I can personally do without being on the receiving end of another Ruby Ridge because someone got a wild hair up their behind....

You're in luck JD - the property across the street is for sale - 35 acres for $77K And I'll even throw in range-rights to my Rifle Ranges!

Now THAT'S an idea I would be willing to invest in! Like out in Wyoming, Montanna, Idaho, or someplace that's friendly to the 'gun" culture..

This thread brings back memories from playing the game, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty. In the opening scenes when America first comes under attack and all of the citizens around you all ban together to fight as one. Sent shivers down my spine.

I know its not the exact same scenerio as described in this thread, but it reminded me of it.

Unfortunately in this day and age I don't think all the citizens will band together...many of the anti-gun crowd will suddenly have a very different view on firearms however..

Do you think so? I'm pretty convinced the anti-gun nutcakes I know would wet themselves then cower at the feet of the nearest National Guard member demanding that he/she disarm or shoot those "crazy gun nut people".

I think when they see marshall law declared, they will have a very rude awakening. They will be wetting their pants no doubt, but as far as disarming or shooting anyone, you can't do that without a gun, and luckily the Liberals won't be armed...

HA! That's funny right there, I don't care who you are.

Yeah, the freedom and liberty loving Americans should have little to worry about in the way of "will I be able to defend myself?" The rest of us however...well I am not sure how they would react. Perhaps some will open their eyes and become gun lovers right away, some will become that way when they realize that guns have been needed all along and perhaps if ALL law abiding citizens had them to begin with, maybe the SHTF would never have happened to begin with.
Some will still continue to hate their own right to defend themselves and their families. This group will more than likely be "rounded up" by the U.S. military, probably end up in a "camp" somewhere. This camp will of course be deplorable and nearly uninhabitable. Others may try to band together with those who already have guns and ammo so that they feel safer....who knows. I for one do NOT want to find out any time soon, or at all for that matter.
