A great many concerned citizens have bought emergency equipment, firearms and ammunition. Some others have even made contingency plans would the principle of law give way to the principle of force in times of crisis. Others have acquired firearms for self defense, and when mandatory also have a concealed weapon permit. In most cases concerned people have acquired what they could possibly need and believe they are ready comes hell or high water. Many could be mistaken; to have the right stuff is not enough. In fact in the world of security, to be is more important than to have. One must be absolutely proficient with his firearms and equipment. One must be trained, one must be prepared, one must be alert without being nervous or paranoid.
