It is amazing the hate that is transpiring across America today.
Just the other day I saw an article reporting that over 50% of America believe that we are going to see a civil war.
50% folks, that is a rather high number.
We are at a boiling point and things are getting ready to explode. The left has been stirring the pot and I mean a lot.
The left’s hate is growing more and more daily. Their fruit bare them out. They claim “WE” the conservatives and Christians are the haters, yet look at what they promote. They claim we are destroying America, but when they “march for peace” they destroy property, attack people and cause bloodshed.
Here is a great map of BLM and Antifa Terrorist Riots that have taken place across the US.
Let me pose a question – if you saw this map knowing that rioting went on in most of these areas, would you think “are we being invaded by some foreign power in an freaky, unbalanced war?
How is this any different than Afghanistan or Iraq? Doesn’t it seem that we are moving from cold civil war to a hot one?
More and more those who feel like they are empowered are taking to the streets and violently attacking people.
AND… get this, the powers that be on the left are condoning it by doing nothing or vocally going along with it cheering them on.
I have been warning for some time that this sort of violence would eventually come about.
I mean heck, just wait till the elections this November. I think things are going to get ugly no matter which side wins.
The violence is overwhelming and we blood shed is taking place. AND… you know what? I believe it is going to get a lot worse as well.
With inflation, food shortages, rising prices of gas, food, and just about everything else, I believe that perilous times are not coming, perilous times are here.
What Can We Do?
Like it or not, we are going to have to accept that the violence is here and that it is growing. If we can accept that, we can then come to a place mentally where we can then do something about it.
I am one who does not advocate violence, but I am one who will not stand by and let something happen either. If there is the chance that violence will come to me and mine, then I am going to do all that I can so that they are not harmed.
So, what do we do?
How do we protect ourselves?
We harden our security both personal, at home and at the workplace.
So how do we protect ourselves? Protect Yourself with Covert Body Armor
We need to start taking precautions. As much as I hate to say this and it is painting with a broad brush but if you have some of these radical left groups in your area, then there might be a risk.
Something that you may consider is start wearing a covert form of body armor. With today’s technology there is level 2 and level 3 Kevlar motorcycle clothing that will help protect against a lot of the dangers that motorcycle riders have to avoid.
“After a 35mph crash into rocks, I can attest to the strength of the Kevlar. The foot peg caught on inner thigh, tore thru the denim and just left a deep bruise on my inner thigh. With after market pegs using replaceable studs I can assure you without Kevlar it may have been a life threatening result.”
In other words, the Kevlar stopped the foot peg from going through the pants and into his leg all while doing 35 MPH. Note that he did not have any rock or debris penetrating the skin either.
Many Police wear the same clothing to help protect them as well against knife attacks, being cut and other dangers that they face on the street.
I am showing this sort of example because if you are in the area of an IED, this sort of clothing might protect you from any shrapnel or flying debris from the explosion.
Is this perfect and is this what this clothing was made for?
NO… not at all, BUT I would be willing to wear cloths like this and if I am in some sort of situation, odds are that the Kevlar panels that are part of this type of clothing “might” stop shrapnel and debris.
I want to state again that this sort of clothing is also cut resistant, and many police wear this sort of clothing to stop knife attacks.
Just look at Salman Rushdie being violently stabbed while giving a talk on stage. The attacker was brazen and it is that sort of brazen attitude that we are seeing more and more in society today. Think if he was wearing some sort of Kevlar clothing; would he have sustained the critical knife wounds that the attacker inflicted?
Just so you know, at the writing of this article he is still in critical condition.
I have a pair of Kevlar sleeves that I wear when I am conducting special security tasks. I have personally tested them out to see if they are in fact they cut and puncture resistant and I was impressed, they do what they say they do.
The great thing about Kevlar is that it is also heat / fire resistant. Maybe you have seen waitresses wearing these sort of Kevlar sleeves in dinners. Particularly where they stack 4-5 plates of food on one arm. Those sleeves they are wearing are the same type that many police ear to help guard against knife attacks.
These also will help protect against fragments and debris if you are in the vicinity of an IED.
One final item I want to talk about is a bullet proof backpack not only for you, but also for your child. I have heard a lot about the ProShield backpack and had read some favorable write-ups about it.
It looks just like a normal computer backpack, it even has multimedia ports for your MP3 player and also pockets on the straps to hold your cellphone or other items.
If you do not want to get this backpack, look into Level III Kevlar pads that you can possibly slip into your own back pack. They do not weight a lot and this is something that could give you a fighting if some radicalized individual decided to come shoot up some place or swinging a knife stabbing people.
So many people think that it can’t happen. But what we are seeing is that it is becoming more and more common place in today’s society and because of that, it is something that one should take into serious consideration.

Put Together a Gun Shot Kit For Yourself and Your Child’s Back Pack and
Ok, if your child is rather young, then this may not be a good idea. But if your child is older, understands first aid and such, then putting together a gunshot / blow out kit for their back pack could save their lives.
Building Your Gun Shot Kit / First Aid Kit
This is very simple to build.
Pick up the “Trauma Pak Kit with QuikClot” it has everything in one package you need to stop the bleeding, including a simple instruction card that your child can follow.
Other items that I recommend is an Israeli Compression bandage, Tourniquet, and more packets Quick Clot blood clotter. More people die of bleeding out than being shot.
IF you can stop the bleeding, you are giving you or your child a much higher chance of survival.
Something else that a number of people have told me about is having a small tampon in your gun shot kit. A small tampon can be pushed into the bullet hole and then deployed into the wound. The small size tampon is about the size of a 9 mm to .45 caliber bullet. These are made to stop the bleeding and that is what you have to do. Having a few sanitary pads also are also good for knife wounds, bad cuts and scrapes. Again, these are made to hold blood and can help stop the bleeding. You can use some Gorilla Duct Tape to keep these things in place.
One final item to have in your blow out kit is super glue. You would be amazed at the first aid uses super glue has. It is great at closing up a cut quickly. This is why I always keep it on hand.

Train Your Children To Use These Items
OK, so let’s say you have purchased a bullet proof backpack and blow out kit for not only yourself, but also for you child.
Your kids need to know how to use these. That means that you need to train them in their use.
As I mentioned before a moving target is very hard to hit. So the odds are in your child’s favor if he or she has to run away.
Teach your kids to never be without their backpacks and if there is a situation, then make sure that they always take their backpack with them.
If your child is of an age where they can think on their own, again train them to get out of the area as fast as they can. The bullet proof backpack can help protect them with their escape.
As much as I hate to say it, if the teacher tells them to get under their desks and just wait, then there is a chance that your child will be shot. They need to act and act quickly.
This is why it is vital that you put “What If” plans in place, draw up maps of their school, and then you and your kids talk seriously about different situations.
By giving your child a plan, they can then act in a time of emergency. This is all part of the “Fight, Flight or Freeze” instinct we all have.
The human brain will look to run some sort of plan, if it has no plan in place, then it will make one up, which often is freezing or chaotic running, often times right into the path of the shooter.
By giving your child a clear plan and talk to them about it frequently, you are training your child to live instead of being some bump on the log waiting to be shot.
Having some crazy whacked out nut job go into a office, a school, a baseball park and shoot it up has become a real world reality. If you and your kids are Christians, then the odds high in becoming a target.
We need to get real with ourselves in the day and age that we live in. We need to equip ourselves and our family as best as we can so that they have fighting chance if something like an active shooter coming in and blasting up some public area.
By sitting down and talking realistically with your family, setting up plans, escape routes and meet up points as well as what to do if they encounter the shooter or if they have to apply first aid on themselves or a friend. You are preparing your family for a real-world situation.
It is better to have these things in place and not need them, than to need them and not have them in place.
Not having these precautions in place may cost one or all of your family members their life as well as your own.
Think about it, we are talking about what, $200 maybe $225 per person to give you, your family that fighting edge to survive.
Are you or your family worth that investment?
If I had young kids today, yeah, I would be doing all I could to make sure my kids are safe and best prepared as possible.
Look into putting together a backpack, briefcase, computer bag that you can put a bullet proof shield in and put together a blow-out kit. Your family is worth the cost.
Stay safe… it is getting pretty crazy out there these days and be ready to take on the crazies.
