SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “HJL”. More articles on “Gun Control” today.
Gun Confiscation Center in Seattle
Seattle has opened a “weapons retrieval” center specifically for the purpose of confiscating firearms. They can claim that they won’t come for your firearms all they want, but it is readily apparent what the goal is. Anyone can request that guns be taken away from a person that a judge deems to be a threat to others and now there is a unit that is specifically designed to do just that. Remember that all it takes for you to lose your right to bear arms is for some corrupt or left-leaning progressive/liberal judge to issue an order that you are dangerous and they will come for you. You are considered guilty until proven innocent under the “Extreme Risk Protection Order”. Thanks to D.S. for the link.
Mexican Gun Control
The left loves to blame Mexican gun violence on American Guns, but the reality is that Mexican law makes it very difficult for the average person to own a firearm. We’ve seen how creating “gun-free” zones here simply make them into “victim rich” zones and all of Mexico is basically a gun free zone. They don’t have a “Second Amendment” that stymies efforts to disarm the populace. Guess who has all the guns there. The Mexican army and the drug cartels/gangs. The average person is caught in a crossfire with no way to protect themselves without becoming a criminal. Last year alone, there were over 25,000 homicides placing the homicide rate at 20.5 per 100,000 inhabitants. Note that most believe this is a low-ball number. The Mexican government counts multiple murders in one location as one incident. The number is based on the number of investigations, not the number of those murdered. This is what the left wants for you. Thanks to H.L. for the link.
California Bill Protecting School Shooters
Get your kids out of those
indoctrination centers public schools while you still can. Reader J.B. sent this article from late last year that shows Governor Brown signed legislation that prevents an armed teacher from shooting back at the assailant if they are attacked. The bill, AB 424, was designed to counter the law that passed last year giving superintendents the power to decide if employees could bring concealed weapons onto campuses. The left seems to want your children to become victims so they can use it as an example of why guns should be completely taken away. Note that there have been no recorded incidents of armed teachers using their firearms for protection or otherwise in California.
South African White Displacement Camps
Lauren Southern continues her series on the situation in South Africa. In this video she details how the racist polices of the South African government places ethnic priorities on black workers over white workers regardless of qualifications. As a result the white poverty is exploding in the country as families can’t find employment. Lauren heard about an orphanage that was cut off from their financial support because it was considered too white. She took it upon herself to visit the site and find out what kind of life these displaced people live. This was basically a shanty town that had no power or lights and was occupied mostly by women and children. These are people that have been failed by the government, police and even charities. Thanks to T.J. for the link.
Another Reason to Have Meat in Your Food Stores
Wondering why you should include meats in your food storage preps? This article, sent in by H.L. interviews some Venezuelan oil workers who are collapsing on the job from hunger. One in particular said that he hadn’t eaten meat in over two months. The average Venezuelan continues to loose weight because they have no food to eat due to food shortages. Think of this country every time you hear one of those left-leaning progressives tout the benefits of Bernie Sanders. This is where that road leads to.
China Scrapping Term Limits for President
Reader G.P. sent in this article on how China is scrapping the term limits for president in a bid to keep Xi as the country’s leader. Xi is scheduled to step down in 2022, but many believe that he wants to stay in power longer. The communist part proposed the change to the constitution this year, probably because his leadership lineup does not include a clear heir. In some ways Xi has been good for the country because he has clamped down on corruption, but as one expert puts it: “A party that allows a leader through cult and power of personality to re-write the rules of succession is not a political party confident in itself.”
