OK, if that's a big concern for you, figure out a way to get around it. Figure out how to get what's important to you in your home OUT of your home quickly. Stuff like furniture, clothes and electronics can all be replaced. People, photos, valuables and necessary supplies can't be replaced. So have a plan to scram quickly and know where you're going before you leave. In other words, don't let it be a fear.

I think you could well be right that there may be riots in densely-populated areas if inflation gets out of control and/or if social spending cuts are made. If you can't get your neighborhood on board to defend itself, have a plan to make yourself scarce at the first sign the riots are spreading outside the cities.

I understand where you are coming from - my wife is incapable of much movement, and hoofing it out simply isn't an option. We keep our outside as unattractive to burglars as possible, and the backyard has an old barbeque and a lot of dog poop.
Can't see inside for many reasons - I want the roving gangs to go after the bigger targets. Now If I can get my family OUT while there is still time, I will - I won't ignore every warning like Willy Katrina did, but if it's out of the blue, I bug in.

Easy fix. Throw a couple items on your law that have no long term value to you. Couch, a dresser, lamp, maybe a speaker and a TV. Crack the tv screen, break the lamp in half, and smash the dresser. Then take everything else you have and use it to board up your house. Junk on your front lawn will make it look like your house has already been raided. Then secure the interior.

No joking around here. I am in the exact same situation and all I have is a pistol and a rem.870 20.ga. If things got really bad you should would have a neighbor move in with you to have more people in the house for more men at arms.Try to get a automatic firearm such as a m60 and mount it on your roof(no joke).Clear all vegetation around your house for 200 yards.Have plenty of ammo on hand(such as for 1 ar-15, 500rds)and food. Barbed wire mixed with electrical wire (electricity running threw it).And of course many weapons I would suggest ak-47s,sks,ar-15s,svd,benelli m4,1911,and anything you can get your hands on even armored vests and put up a sign to gangs showing you mean business.

I have thought about this many times, I have a fall back position out of town (brother in laws house) I'll right the old fort to blow and if they try to invade I will bug out. When they finally breach after the dead bar across the door breaks BOOM! After I get to the other "fort" then plan c will come into effect after I come up with it.

Worst comes to worst I'm gonna run like hell to fort knox and pray to god they don't shoot me on sight.
