Preparedness Notes for Saturday — November 9, 2019

November 9th (1938) was “Kristallnacht”. Be forewarned, folks: Once a group in any society has been singled out for ridicule and persecution, then they can be systematically attacked, physically. Someday it may be “Constitutionalists” who are targeted.

I just got word that Palmetto State Armory (one of our affiliate advertisers) is having a Veteran’s Day Weekend sale on their M4-style Complete AR Lowers with MagPul MOE Edition black furniture with six-position buffer tubes, for just $149.  If you can afford to, then I recommend that you buy several. This is a great deal. Just type “7065” in their search box, to find this item.  Note that this sale ends at 12 Noon on Monday, 11/11/2019.

Oh, and I see that they also have MagPul 30-round PMAGs on sale at $7.99, with free shipping if you buy 10 or more. Just type “MAG571-BLK” in their search box, to find those.

One Comment

  1. Look no further than the Antifa movement’s assault and battery on MAGA har wearers. Essentially Republican voters beware for voting the “wrong” way in a free election.

    Look no further than the IRS under Louse Lerner targeting conservatives. The FBI using lethal force on conservatives (Bundys, Weavers, Branch Davidians). Liberals taking over public education and Marxist professors not tolerating free speech among conservative students and having “cry-ins” for conservative wins in politics.

    It’s already here.

    The hate by the LEFT is unprecedented.
