    In a warning from Rand Paul on the senate floor, where he speaks out against provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, we learned today that the government considers having guns or storing more than 7 days of food a possible terrorist activity.

    In the speech Rand Paul warns Americans that “Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weather proofed, someone who has 7 days of food in their house” can be considered a potential terrorist by the federal government.

    He warns that under a new provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act the federal government could lock you up indefinitely if you are suspected of activities that they consider terrorism related. That’s right the military will now have the power to lock up anyone, even American citizens without due process and without being convicted of a crime.

    ...and yet FEMA and American Red Cross put out and Emergency Preparedness Checklist, listing non-perishable food and water as part of your storage kit for emergencies.

    Melbo, do you feel that this might be the proverbial "beginning of the end"? Seems like it to me.

    IIRC FEMA and ARC only recommend 3 days food and water. The thing is 7 days food & water, brightly colored stains on your clothing (hippies in tie die are sooo screwed), missing fingers (safety first, class), have different hair color than you should, buy with cash, purchase MREs, and a whole slew of other odd "signs" that the Federales decided was an indicator you are potentially a home grown threat.

    Well if they really want to start it their off to a good start. Preppers are the wrong people to start messing with. If the prepper roundup starts, I hope they are dumb enough to try and ban guns at the same time...then it's on for everyone..at least the 3%.

    Of course listen to FEMA and only have 3 days food and water. After a disaster, when they arrive after 10-14 days, you're gonna be really happy to see them. And too weak to resist.

    A conspiracy? Naah, couldn't be.

    Heck, 99% of the bush alaska folks, are terrorists, under such BS... If we don't have 100% of our food in -house by October, we may be starving by spring... let alone the number of firearms and ammunition stored up, for subsistance hunting.... I would say, that someone should SUE the A** off the FEDS over such a Policy, and make them defend it in front of SCOTUS.... That should put a crimp in such BS, in a HURRY....

    That would be true, as it was for the Founders when we declared Independence from King George and his minions. Make no mistake, if it becomes necessary to overthrow dot gov, those that do so will be criminals until the overthrow has been completed. Just because we retain the right to take all necessary actions to do away with tyranny, we also take the responsibility if we fail to overcome the oppressors. TANSTAAFL. In this, your mileage will NOT vary.

    Well, I suppose they will go after the Mormons first...they have just a little bit more than 7 days of food put away.

    That does not relieve those who rise up from criminal charges if success is not in the stars. At the moment arms are taken up against zero's minions, we'll have to go all in or we shall all certainly hang separately.

    My mileage is the same.
