cut off suplies.Mess up the roads, garrot wire the roads to help futher. A few matches and gas on a ammo depo might end thier supplies of amunition. Then slowly let the fall from within.

One way or another, it's going to happen while many currently alive are still alive.

I'd be too busy laughing at the techo junkie dorks getting the shakes because they can't watch TV or play video games. It would take me weeks to recover enough to be useful to the resistance.

Even if they did a major confiscation of firearms, I can't imagine how many millions they'd miss. Simply because they weren't papered to anyone, or they had been hidden at the last minute. Sure, we'd be forced to use guerilla warfare, but we'd still have some teeth. Those teeth would allow us to get a hold of other, more effective, weaponry in time.

I think lots of gun owners would say that this would be the end of the train ride. Because I sure wouldn't give up my weapons, especially to some U.N. jokers. So I would be dead.
BUT, since I'm one of those born-again Christian types, I'm pretty cool with what happens after I die.
We win.

All you need is someone with a machine shop or one of your own and guns could be made pretty easily.

Gunpowder is not that hard to make - just takes lots of practice, and a gun is not that complicated to make.

The only way this scenario is "realistic" is if the laws of physic magically change like in the "Dies the Fire" series by Sterling.

To seriously answer your ridiculous question though, life would suck. There was a reason the dark ages were called the dark ages.

Come to think of it, an EMP event is not likely to be the only event. It would probably be followed by some kind of action. That is, unless it was a single shot from Osama Bin Laden or North Korea.

Otherwise, if it was Russia, say, I would expect bombing or invasion afterward.

Guess I'd better get to work on that bunker.

Imagine that new members could resist the impulse to immediately start posting threads about imagining the imaginary effects of imaginary SHTF "scenarios"........LOL.

Trolling.....

Why is it that some "new" members have to vomit all over themselves with scenarios.

Attention: Noobs!

Veterans will not answer your "what-if" scenarios right off the bat, and will not show you their preps! Post a few times, get a handle of the forums, and then bring it up!

Good?

I'll just become a warlord. A ball bat / hammer, and some initiative can secure you a weapon, from there you make it up as you go.

"Imagine all the peo-ple..."

Typical newb wetdream, inspired by watching Red Dawn too much. Although I give the OP props that he didn't specify that becoming a raider and stealing, killing, and raping away was your only real option...
