There is a great book out on 'what to do' that just came out. It involves west Tn (specifically Memphis and suburbs, as well as northern MS). However, the story could happen anywhere in the state or the country. Its a fictional account of the economic system failing and the ensuing mayhem when martial law is declared and the govt comes to confiscate the food and guns of folks who saw it coming and were prepared. While its a fictional account, it is really a manual on what you need to do to prepare for the worst not only from the government, but also from roving gangs of thugs looking to steal your supplies when theirs run out. Also has lots of good techniques for stalling authorities looking to take your guns when they show up at your house.
Its a really good book and its only $13-14 on Amazon.
The title of the book is: The Right To Keep And Bear Arms After The Riots Begin by Mike Foster, MD.

I've been preparing for years for when the aliens come down and try to take over. I have a bunker in my backyard filled with all the food and water I'll need for about a year or longer. I figure I can use the bunker for this too....

I've got power to it and a generator and solar panels for when they cut my power. Plenty of weapons loaded and even a couple of gas masks as well.

I've been sitting in it on two other occasions...Y2K and most recently 12/21/12.......maybe one day I'll be right and the rest of my friends will be wrong.

Good luck to you all during the upcoming apocalypse.

We have allowed the government to overstep their boundaries. People will snap if martial law truely is going into effect. I've been stockpiling on ammo and such and basic food items. I feel confident that I could survive if need be.

The problem with stock piling is your house will not hold up against an assault from roving gangs, (mentioned before) and you will not be able to fend them off no matter how many guns you have loaded or how much ammo you have and they will be a reality.

Sure you can kill a bunch, but in the end you and your family still end up dead, which is failure. you will have to be able to move and with a family that will be hard. it will be even harder if you are trying to carry 10,000 rounds of ammo and 2 tons of food and water, plus medicine.

In addition, if this happens, hospitals and doctors will close, so kids like my 1 yr old son will be in major jeopardy of dying of sickness. unless you have the medicine they need when they get sick.

Sorry folks, don't mean to offend anyone, but if this happens holing up in your house or bunker is probably a bad idea. Sure it can work, but it could turn out bad as well, which is most likely going to be the outcome no matter what you do, but being mobile will give you more options.

The two choices will really be.

1. submit to martial law and give in to govt control.
2. fight a civil war, but that will have to be organized or you will have complete mayhem afterwards.

If you want some real life experiences google "frugal squirrel" and read what happens when the grid goes down in modern times (it actually happened), and neighborhoods had to organize to protect themselves from criminals, and what people did to keep their kids safe, and how thugs used "express kidnappings" to their benefit... Well, its too much to list here, but it all happened in real life and is interesting to see how things actually work when it hits the fan.
Between that true life account and the book listed in my earlier post you should be pretty well educated on day-to-day living, as well as how to deal with authorities and bad guys...and how to deal with folks that just need help (like the formerly middle-class single mom w/kids that shows up on your doorstep begging for food not for her, but for her baby)...
Theres a lot of info there for those inclined to be prepared but not paranoid.

First off Fed gov can try to enact martial law. Many believe the Fed Gov has more power then the States, that can only be the case if the Constitution Is stricken down. They are not ready to go that route yet. Why well you know why. Plus the Federal Gov gets their powers from the States and that is us, WE THE PEOPLE. this has been widely dismissed and twisted so most Americans be the the Fed gov has the power.

Let my also put that these so called laws NDAA, Patriot Act, they are unconstitutional. If they wanted the weapons Ban, they would have succeeded in 1963 after the assasination of Kennedy. They tried the UN tried they failed.

Also deploy of military troops would be a violation as well, That would then be the Govoner's job of every state to call up the Militia ( US let me say that again US) (2nd admendment) to fight if needed against the Federal military and the Tyranical Government. The Govenors are commander and chief of the National Guard and Militia. Not the President. I wont debate this its pure Fact.

State of TN Constitution over rides The Feds( sorry for you non believers) read below and this is also derived from the United States Constitution.


Section 25. That no citizen of this state, except such as are employed in the
army of the United States, or militia in actual service, shall be subjected to
punishment under the martial or military law. That martial law, in the senseof the unrestricted power of military officers, or others, to dispose of the persons,
liberties or property of the citizen, is inconsistent with the principles of
free government, and is not confided to any department of the government of
this state.

All you are doing here is making fun of YOURSELF.

Martial law is REAL, it's in the law books of the federal govt and every single state in the country.

All though American history martial law HAS been decleared several times. Aside from the American Civil War, which saw the whole country come under martial law for almost 4 years, there are 12 times the Federal govt decleared martial law. Several states inculing TENNESSEE decleared martial law in parts of the state like when King was killed in Memphis. In each of thiose times martial law was used AMERICANS DIED either before and/or after the law was decleared.

So what you tried to do here was to make fun of something you knew nothing about.

Nothing ever happens, and nothing can happen...until it does.

Once martial law is declared the rules change, or more accurately, are suspended. There is more to it than that, but too much to get into here. If you are a student of the law AND know how things work in the real world, it makes a facinating study.

When you walk down the streets of Memphis Tn in 1968 while the National Guard was also walking around those same streets carrying their M-14's you don't have much choice.

Wait a minute. This was back in 1968 and it was the Governor of Tennessee that used the Tennessee National Guard, at the time it was well within his right do do so. Back then the National Guard was still a State mater. So at the time they were within the law.

I beg to differ read this from the TN Constitution.

State of TN Constitution

Section 25. That no citizen of this state, except such as are employed in the
army of the United States, or militia in actual service, shall be subjected to
punishment under the martial or military law. That martial law, in the senseof the unrestricted power of military officers, or others, to dispose of the persons,
liberties or property of the citizen, is inconsistent with the principles of
free government, and is not confided to any department of the government of
this state.

Nope, they are all dead now but nothing was ever done to them. In fact the people of Memphis at the time welcomed them because it kept the riots down.

Like it or not but it's a real possibly that it can be decleared on anything. Look at New Orleans in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. You can debate it wither it's legal or not the fact is it HAS been decleared across the country several times after the Civil War.

True Wildcat I know all about 2005, I was in SC with Hugo.

Now because they did it, doesnt mean nothing can be done. Its up to the people not to lay down and take this and you know it. In these times and the answer are hard one has to determine what they stand for, Sacrifices will be made.

Talk is great on here and many other places. I defended this Country and the People Proudly. I can tell you this Wildcat I will not stand idlely by rest assured, I still Honor the Oath I took in the Marine Corps. I am starting to see and hear some changes going on. As I heard one say, "They Boys got their Dandruff up I could not stop the fight sir'. I believe that is coming.

I think what is being missed here, is in some cases martial law was enacted and welcomed by the people, but in this case it will not be welcomed. At least i hope it will not.

I have a plan of where I will go and am currently working on another. My entire family has an area we can protect for quite some time and plan to all pool together as a small community if needed. We could hold off gangs for quite some time if need be. Each has different ways to contribute. The cities will be the worst places to be if anything come to fruition.

Good deal, but be careful to what you say. They will slam you on here because a lot of these members think nothing will happen. But I am betting on the silent ones that are not talking will have our backs.

It never hurts to plan. The subject first came up when the grid went out up North years back. We talked about what to do if something bigger happened because there are those that won't take care of themselves but would rather take what you have instead. Panic makes people do strange things.

Bowdacious I have a secluded area where I would take my family. An army bag full of essentials such as food and ammo. The hardest obstacle would be Carleigh. Young kids complicate things and I'm still working on that plan. I don't believe in stockpiling to much at home though.

I've posted this before but durning the flood we had 2 years ago they limited the people crossing the bridge from Paducah to only the people that lived here and the bridge in Smithland was closed because Smithland flooded. That left only two highways into this area that are easy closed off in several bottlenecks. Knock those two bridges out and close the other two highways and it would kkeep 90% of the people out.

There were a lot of us that saw just how good a place we have here and a couple dozen of us have gotten together to talk it over. Each one of us are doing our own thing but we are helping each other so I think we have got it good is it comes down to it.

hypothetically if this happened what will we do?


There is a great book out on 'what to do' that just came out. It involves west Tn (specifically Memphis and suburbs, as well as northern MS). However, the story could happen anywhere in the state or the country. Its a fictional account of the economic system failing and the ensuing mayhem when martial law is declared and the govt comes to confiscate the food and guns of folks who saw it coming and were prepared. While its a fictional account, it is really a manual on what you need to do to prepare for the worst not only from the government, but also from roving gangs of thugs looking to steal your supplies when theirs run out. Also has lots of good techniques for stalling authorities looking to take your guns when they show up at your house.
Its a really good book and its only $13-14 on Amazon.
The title of the book is: The Right To Keep And Bear Arms After The Riots Begin by Mike Foster, MD.


I just started reading that on my Kindle before I shot my buck Tuesday morning. I haven't had the chance to pick it up again, but I've heard alot of good things about it.


Just finshed this book last night. I recommended it to several people already. It's a good read, at times the author gets a bit long winded and gets repetitive, but the message stands strong and true. It's also very scary how he shows the end game of the direction we're heading.

One thing that worries me is that my wife and I are the only people in our neighborhood that have a garden and can our food for storage. All of our neighbors are aware of this and I am sure they would come to my home looking for food once the SHTF. Could turn into a hairy situation. \:\(

The author of this book makes a great point in the story. A lone prepared individual doesn't stand a chance. Eventually sheer mass of the unprepared will get you. Best bet is to team up with like minded individuals for labor and security. If you have the property find some others and let them know they are welcome, with that price.

Interesting thread. Being that I work in Downtown Memphis, I am trying to come up with some options. I suspect if something goes down, things might go bad quickly. No discredit to any local LEOs on here, as I'm sure they've gone over what could happen. When the SHTF happens, anything can happen, and they will certainly have their hands full. My respect to them all.
