Folks looks like it has become a 2 sided attack from the media on not just weapons; but, folks that want to be prepared for an emergency (Preppers).

More information at the link.

Interesting article from SHTFplan website.

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/the-psy-ops-war-on-preppers-this-has-become-a-two-for-the-price-of-one-crisis_12172012

A few descriptive quotes:

■Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world. (Riehl World View)

■According to reports, Nancy Lanza was a so-called ‘prepper’, a part of the survivalist movement which urges individuals to prepare for the breakdown of society by training with weapons and hoarding food and other supplies. ( The UK Independent)

■Reports are starting to emerge of the troubled young man and his unusual upbringing. (Yahoo)

■Dan Holmes, owner of a landscaping firm who worked on the family’s home, said she was an avid gun collector: ‘She told me she would go target shooting with her kids.’ (UK Daily Mail)

■Marsha Lanza described Nancy as ‘self-reliant’.( The UK Independent)

■He was reportedly homeschooled by his mother, a school principal and gun enthusiast, who wasn’t satisfied with the education her son was receiving.. (Yahoo)

■As America searches for answers, investigators are turning towards Nancy Lanza’s supposed identification as a survivalist. (Yahoo)

■Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’. (UK Daily Mail)

■Mother of Sandy Hook school gunman Adam Lanza was a ‘prepper’ survivalist preparing for economic and social collapse, say reports. ( The UK Independent)

■Mrs Lanza is thought to have trained her sons, Adam and Ryan to shoot, even taking them to local ranges. ( The UK Independent)

■‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense. She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’ (UK Daily Mail)

Gee…they say this stuff like it’s a BAD thing.

Let’s see.
■Stockpiles (or hoards) food….check.
■Takes children target shooting….check.
■Preparing for economic and/or social collapse….check.
■Serious about home defense….check.
■Home is well-fortified against criminals….check.
■Skilled with weapons….check.
■Survivalist philosophy….check.
■Self-reliant….check.
■Believes that we are capable of educating our children at home….check.

Earlier this month, Maryland resident Terry Porter had his home descended upon by 150 armed federal agents and local police officers. The raid also included helicopters, SWAT crews, armored vehicles and excavation equipment.

His crimes? He was known as a prepper, he was unhappy with the reelection of Barack Obama, and he owned guns. He “openly admitted being a prepper.”

So, why all the vilification? Why are preppers the new “boogeymen”? Why are we being pigeonholed as people who homeschool our kids and turn them into mass murderers of elementary school students?

Simple…because we don’t NEED help. We do not require the assistance of the government. We don’t need to line up for 5 hours to wait for a paltry bottle of water and an MRE after a hurricane strikes. We don’t call 911 and hide in a closet waiting for the police to arrive.

Preppers threaten the very existence of all of the social safety nets that are set up. We can’t be easily manipulated by the offer of a free flu shot and a grocery store gift card in exchange for our weapons. We think critically and don’t automatically accept the programming of the mainstream media, whose job it is to provide people with the opinions that they should hold. We don’t shovel in the HFCS-laden genetically modified crap, otherwise known as “food”, killing our brain cells and dumbing us down into cattle to be easily led to slaughter.

We are the last bastion of independent self-reliant thinkers. And the powers that be are very afraid of those who think for themselves, rather than regurgitating the media-presented party line.

I don’t know why Adam Lanza went on a rampage and killed 26 people last week. But I do know that it wasn’t because his mother was a homeschooling prepper who stored up food and taught him to fire a gun at a paper target.

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but I find it strangely conspicuous no one mentions Kent state when talking about school massacres...

A good argument to take away guns from the National Guard...

Actually mass shootings as a whole are down from the past. What we are seeing here is a media driven pushing of an agenda, a leftist agenda. They have seized this abysmal shooting to push their anti-gun agenda and they're using these innocent children to do it. Why aren't we hearing about Waco or Ruby Ridge. A lot more children were slaughtered by the government at Waco but I guess that's alright because the government did it. This isn't even the worst school mass murder in our history. 38 kids and 7 adults were blown up with dynamite way back in 1927. There were all kinds of mass killings in the 30s, 40s and 50s. No amount of gun control will ever stop the killings, they're a sad fact of life in a violent world.

The Kent State tragedy is very near and dear to my heart. Every May 4th at work I would ask my co-workers, "Do you know what happened on this day in 1970?" They never would and I'd tell them.

The largest school massacre was in Bath, Michigan, 1927. As King Solomon said, "there is nothing new under the sun."

Wasn't TNT used at that tragedy?

Dynamite, or physically stabilized nitroglycerine, much easier to detonate.

TNT is difficult to detonate, blasting caps must be used.
