I like the show- because of it my dad bought another 500 round case of .22, a couple cases of .308, an a serpa holster for me lesson learned. Ask dad for stuff at the right time. Next week he's ordering a couple 5 gallon drums w/ lids at cheaper than dirt.

Just days after appearing on the National Geographic TV Show Doomsday Prepper, a prepper from Tennessee has been declared Mentally Defective and his guns have been seized by the government.

Be careful about passing judgement on such things. There is often waaaaay more going on than what certain folks want you to believe.

He violated the rule of three. Shoot Shovel Shutup. Going on tv especially the discovery channel or history channel is prolly not the best idea in staying under the radar. I just have a hard time feeling sorry for morons who do truly stupid stuff like that.

Personally i would say just saying yes ill be on your reality tv show is grounds to be declared mentally defective

Bummer for the guy in TN. I don't think being on the show was his downfall. Making quirky jokes with his DR. Is what did him in.

I watched the show and will continue to watch. There are some good tips that everyone can pickup from the show, just not to the extreme they take it. I live in FL and when hurricanes come through and knock out the power for a week or two they have some good tips I can put to good use. I already have a generator and can get by pretty good but I've already seen some things I can do to make life even better when we have to go without power for an extended time.

For people who don't get the NatGeo channel you can go to their website and watch some clips of the Doomsday Preppers show.

Why would the girl from Houston want the public to see all of her stored preps, as wall as the pics of her apartment building. In the event of a SHTF there will be folks knocking down her door, for sure.

I taped the series. Pretty intense. On the down side it further aggravates the disgust I have for all politicians and corporations who make up current government.

You can search it on YouTube if you don't have the channel. It's in 7-8 min sections though so you gotta keep clicking part 1-4 and so on.
