Skip to comments.Be prepared: Wall Street advisor recommends guns, ammo for protection in collapse
Posted on 12/26/2013 9:38:44 AM PST by upchuck
A top financial advisor, worried that Obamacare, the NSA spying scandal and spiraling national debt is increasing the chances for a fiscal and social disaster, is recommending that Americans prepare a bug-out bag that includes food, a gun and ammo to help them stay alive.
David John Marotta, a Wall Street expert and financial advisor and Forbes contributor, said in a note to investors, Firearms are the last item on the list, but they are on the list. There are some terrible people in this world. And you are safer when your trusted neighbors have firearms.

Sarajevo: A Street Under Siege
I kinda gotta, right now.
I am so screwed.
Have you considered renting it out for a bit more than the mortgage payment?
Laz, hitting it (the road) is your specialty. You’ll thrive.
We live in the country surrounded by neighbors who are armed to the teeth. We are bugging in. Lately I have been lusting after a Stag Arms Model 7 in 6.8 SPC in order to give me more range than 5.56mm.
Don’t let Laz fool you guys! When the SHTF he’s ready and looking forward to a good time in Vegas!
Doesn’t everyone in Kentucky have a .44 mag.?
You're much better off keeping out of sight and shooting bugger-outers snooping around your domicile on-sight.

Go back to the article (and its headline) and practice your reading-for-meaning skillz.
I buy ammo in bulk online all the time. In fact I just purchased a 1200 round case of IMI 5.56mm 55gr.
When the SHTF, selling your house will be the least of your worries. Survival trumps property values, have an escape plan, or better yet, multiple escape plans.
They have no fear and no reverance for the living God.
That’s a nice round. Today at WalMart was the first time in a year that I’ve see that caliber put in the ammo case - two boxes.
How much? I’ve almost pulled the trigger on a case of 308 several times then balked at the price.
20 months ago, I bugged out of NYC for Alabama. Its a long story, and I am still having trouble adjusting to the culture shock, but I tell myself that when the SHTF in NYC, I will fully appreciate where I live now.
P.S. The landlord of my really nice 425 dollar a month apartment sent all the tenants big fruit baskets for Christmas! Quite a change from the bloodsuckers in NYC - I was very humbled and grateful...
They will confiscate everyone’s retirement savings which will prolong it a little while.
Is this the same man who told us the EU and US economies would collapse prior to this past Thanksgiving? I know there are associated authors at World Daily Net and infowars that bring this collapse theory to their front page blogs every few months. Don’t take me as a skeptic on the warnings, the signs are there but pretty soon these guys will be ignored when the wolf actually shows up.
We live 200 miles up a dirt road that's open 5-6 months every summer; along the Yukon River. Locals claim the first step will be to burn the wooden bridges on that road to keep the urban hordes out. Me thinks all that talk is quite humorous. Who'd ever want to come way out here, it's minus 48F this morn as I type?
I didn’t get a harrumph out of that guy.
Anyone who believes that we live in a time that a major modern city with educated advanced western civilization can not be brought to its knees and turned into a dog eat dog world take a look at this:
Pictures of Sarajevo 15 years ago and today show how the city has changed
How many people have thought of primitive tools & gear for their preps?
If our government could jam through (in less than a week) legislation that robs from the pensions of disabled military retirees - then I am positive that seizure of your 401K is entirely plausible.
It’s been available for several months at my WalMart.
Not in my store. Just today after a year.
Calm down, Johnny. You bugged out a long time ago. ;o)
EFFECTIVE AND QUIET.
Check out “sling bow” for even more joy and contentment!
“Bug out to where?”
I think of it as more of a bag, in my car, that will help me get home in the event I’m out when the SHTF.
I’d think that in a national chain like WalMart it would show up everywhere at once, more-or-less.
They'll have to arm-wrestle my ex-wives and their lawyers for my retirement savings.
I started getting ready 3+ years ago. The writing was on the wall with W; now it’s a flashing neon sign.
I found out by looking at tax records that I am charged more taxes than any other townhouse here. I have a copy of the architect's drawing for these places and saw my garden area is larger than all the others. No one can see another person's garden due to the high brick walls dividing the houses in the back. Having a copy of the plans allowed me to see every back garden of the houses. It was because my townhouse is wider than the rest and the physical layout of the land behind me, that I have the larger garden.
Since I started to grow food plants in containers last year, I am glad to have every square foot back there, plus no one can see it.
I lived in another county before I moved here and in that prior county, I was known to everyone due to our prominence of running the Republican Party there. We lived in a “glass house” as everyone knew where we lived and we were watched all the time. There are some seriously bad dudes there that run the other party and I wouldn't feel safe in that county. My car was followed by these people and they knew where I was every day. Due to that experience, I submerged myself in this county and stayed out of the public eye.
I am a nothing here except to a few who run the Republican Party here and even those don't know I am a prepper. I don't want to be anything here, I just want to live incognito. I mean, it's pretty bad when the only Christmas present I got was what I bought for myself (think diamonds). My son did send a beautiful Christmas bouquet since he lives in London. I got him a big new type Leatherman, not knowing an airport took his when he had to leave where he was filming to get to London quickly to accept an award he was given. He forgot his Leatherman was in his pocket and the airport had to take it from him.
The point of what I have written, is, it's best if you appear to others as a regular person who doesn't know jack about what is happening in the country or that the country could collapse in a minute if someone, like our Muslim freaking president, flips a switch and turns off the internet. He can also turn off your TV right now and doesn't have to turn it back on unless he wants to tell you what to do. Don't get me started on that Muslim destroyer.
Oh, the fun that little sentence suggests.....

They won’t have to arm wrestle anyone. There have been negotiations on the process in Congress already. They’ll work directly with the banks. One day they’ll freeze the accounts and convert the 401Ks and IRAs to bonds, no questions asked.
But there will be hell to pay....
Here’s a few more I use:
The way things are going I don’t expect bugging out to be a good option. We’re probably in for a slow decline into anarchy. People in rural areas will be overwhelmed by govt officials looking for hoarders and people looking to steal. There’ll likely still be gas available for a while.
Could be wrong, but somehow I think some of my money and yours went to put in a couple of those windows in that shot-out building.
That is some good stuff.
These Nazis will not make it long in rural America.
Yep, I’ve looked at a number of them. What isn’t out of stock is base grade at premium price.
I’ll keep looking, after a theft a number of years ago, I’m approaching base levels again, not enough that I’m comfortable shooting it up but not ready to panic buy yet.
