As in my previous definition of what I mean by "SHTF"....there maybe a world without laws or a moral compass!
I've spoken to ex-members of gangs like Bloods & Crips....they are stockpiling stuff too! Some have plans to liberate prisoners from jails & prisons! Mongols & Hell's Angels type gangs will be roaming & pillaging the countryside! Inner city hoodlums unrestrained by limited or missing police will also be looting & worse!
Many states have Militias...with well armed membership...they too maybe roaming the countryside! And least we forget the Government may impound all food supplies & weapons under Martial Law!
All these folks will be out hunting for "your stuff"! Have your retreat or bunker as low profile as possible! Camaflauge or looking abandoned is good! Don't a have a huge splashy home with a dozens of windows & lights...this screams "Rob me!" Don't have yard lights or bon fires, loudspeakers, etc!
Just as SHTF will kill off 50% of good folks it will get an equal amount of "dirtbag scum"!
