Bury All Your Guns
"Listen my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.
TO ARMS! TO ARMS! To spades and hoes?!?
Bury ALL your guns, before the king knows!
Imagine the redcoats, filled with delight
Not one armed colonist stood ready to fight.
Lexington and Concord were burned to the ground
Crackling flames the only heard sound.
More taxes were levied, more rights denied;
For lack of arms, patriots died.
So listen my children, and you SHALL hear
No country was born, only suffering and fear.
So... if tyranny you want, then bury, and pray
For the speedy arrival of that brighter day.
But if liberty you love and you yearn to be free,
Then live by this motto... DON'T TREAD ON ME."
And thus we are told to hide weapons and ammunition, food supplies and clothing for the up-coming day the Jack Booted Thugs (AKA: JBTs) come knocking on our door and demand our weapons- all contrary the Constitution.
And what will the majority do? Dare I be so bold as to remark, "Hand them over." Of course, there will be whining and complaints about unConstitutional actions of search and seizure by the dotgov, but that's all it will be.
So common talk is to 'bury them'.
To which I ask: To what effect?
In this neck of the woods, anything buried in summer is going to remain there till the next summer, unless one uses a backhoe or Caterpillar to excavate said item(s). So burying supplies is a pretty silly thing for a lot of people. Unless, of course, one left a portion of the burial cask above ground- somehow concealed from sight of passers-by. Even in the wilds of the North Countree, this is a risky tactic. Slightly less risk of discovery would be to sink said packs in a lake or stream, though the same caveat appears for winter use. Not to mention, they'd better be better than water tight.
So what's a person to do? My boldness asserts itself again.
Keep the items in your home, your BOV and BOB. Don't have anything you aren't willing to lose because when the time comes, the Dark Lord and his JBTs won't give a shit what they take from whom. They want it all and will take all. Keep enough on hand loaded so you can run with it to the Hide, and that is broken into First and Second line gear. First Line is what you absolutely need, carried on your person, in pockets, on your pants belt. Second Line is that in your BOB/fanny pack. Third Line is anything you can live without if you have to leave it.
Just make certain when you leave, anything edible is no longer in that state; weapons are no longer usable, ditto with tools or anything else left. Destroy it. Do not let the enemy have use of it.
Drastic times call for drastic measures.
Bless God, God bless.
