Prepper News Watch for April 3, 2013

Prepper News Watch

FREEDOM: The onslaught against the 2nd Amendment continues with the UN’s approval of the Global Arms Treaty. Look to the anti-gun movement pointing to this as an “authoritative source” for the justification of limiting more of our freedoms.

ECONOMY: It should be fairly clear now what to expect from the economy in the future. It doesn’t matter which country you live in, you’re going to be affected. Make sure you understand what can be expected in in a collapse – it’s more than just mild inflation. Recent collapses in other countries have suffered through repeated riots, looting and other violence. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that it can’t happen near you.

NUCLEAR/EMP: It’s difficult to know whether there’s an imminent threat fron North Korea or not. On one hand, you have reports that say that NK isn’t making any military moves that would suggest they are gearing for this, but on the other hand, we see the US continuing to send military assets into the region. Though this could simply be due to the treaty we have with South Korea. Regardless, though, EMP is such an asymmetrical attack that it should not be taken lightly. Learn how to protect your gear from EMP by listening to the EMP podcasts and getting the Surviving EMP miniguide.
