I'm new to this forum and pardon me if I beat a dead topic. (I don't know if I am cause I haven't read through everything.) I as well as my brother and other "perceptive people" close to me have been watching the social/political/financial situation with concern for years now. When I talk about the good idea of keeping firearms and plenty of ammo, along with standard survival gear and MRE's, people laugh or tell me I'm crazy. I think a large portion of the population has become complacent in their own safety. Do people think that just because things have been "ok" for so long that they will continue to be so? I don't feel the end is near, but I do believe that we are headed for uncertain and possibly dangerous times. I assume this would be a place to find people of a similar mind set as well as good ideas I haven't thought of yet. So.... am I crazy?
