People are talking about lethal preps – guns and ammo, mostly.
I was on Mike Hendrix’s Substack – https://mikehendrix.substack.com/p/guantanamo-daze – and found this. Funniest end to a riot that I had read ever. And, it occurred to me, there may be a place in the Prepper’s Stash for rubber bullets. Something to deter those who are not fully committed to violence/looting, but who need to be ‘brushed back’, as they say in baseball.
How about beanbag rounds for shotguns? Same idea.
They will just be back if you don’t offer a “permanent” solution.
I disagree that the non-lethal rounds will have any significant effect. The targets will note the intention not to be lethal, and some will take it as kindness while others take it as weakness… Until someone has an eye gouged out, or a critical injury to the throat.
Others will only hear gunshots and conclude that the “worm” has turned.
Communists don’t understand being brushed back. Failure to employ lethal force when lawful to do so will result in your own death. If you fire a rifle at a mob they aren’t going to sit around and determine that you were shooting rubber bullets, they are going to respond with everything they’ve got.
Quit believing that they don’t want you dead.
