I'm finding more and more pieces in the media, such as this one on Town Hall, that pronounce we are in the midst of the Second American Civil War. Are we? It doesn't feel like it to me, but it probably didn't feel like it to my ancestors until people started shooting, and in reality, the first civil war started long before that.
It could just be fashion, a band wagon to jump on. It could be clickbait. But I'm getting this sinking feeling that there is more than a bit of truth in these articles and blog posts. I sincerely believe that this summer will make the truth or lie of it obvious.
Just in case, I'm being more cautious in my daily activities. Shopping trips are now pretty much restricted to daytime hours. Evening trips are being eliminated if possible. I carry a larger handgun and more ammo. Trips to larger cities are only taken when necessary, and then with more precautions than I took a few months ago.
I'd like to suggest that all of you evaluate the situation in your area and the situation in the nation and take what precautions you deem necessary. I'm not saying run out and "stock up on canned food and shotguns", but look at your situation and consider what you'd need if you had to stay home for a week or two. Are you ready for that?
