Prepared Not Unprepared - The Ready Center

Below is a link to a very short narrative sharing two fictitious conversations that take place immediately after an EMP attack on the United States. One conversation is between a husband and wife who are prepared for disasters. The other is between a husband and wife who are NOT prepared for disaster.

Although it is a very short read (3-5  minutes), it does an excellent job of communicating the possible realities of those who prepare, and those who do not.  Enjoy.

And as always, if we can help you and your family prepare in anyway, we would be honored to do so.

The Ready Center Tactical

I found another old email from a friend and thought I’d share it.  If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If you don’t own a gun, you should get one and learn how to use it.

A: Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

B: Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

C: Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

D: Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.

E: Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (I prefer the sound of a slug being chambered when you cock a shotgun)

F: The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

G: The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.

H: If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

J: In a life and death situation, do something . . . It may be wrong, but do something!

K: If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about? (I call it being prepared)

L: You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language. (more…)

Rights Are Not Gifts - The Ready Center

Your rights are a gift from God.  They are NOT a gift from our government, Supreme Court, or our Constitution.  Stop believing the lie and start acting accordingly.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – The Declaration of Independence

“…hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”  – 1 Timothy 6:17

‘Nuff said.

Revolutionary War 2 - The Ready Center

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

Hello Ready Center Bloggers!  A friend forwarded this to me as an email quite some time ago.  I recently “re-discovered” it while cleaning out my inbox.  It’s short, to the point, and I felt it was worth sharing.  Enjoy!

A Refresher of our Firearm Freedoms

1. “Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.”  ~Thomas Jefferson

2. “Those who trade liberty for security have neither.” ~ John Adams

3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

After dealing with the onslaught of “Memorial Day” photos all over Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and the rest of the internet, it seems necessary that someone remind America what Memorial Day is really about.  And what it’s not about.

Memorial Day is NOT about beer, BBQ’s, the “Memorial Day” Sale at the store around the corner, or spending time with family.  If you’ve spent more time focusing on those today than anything else, you’ve failed.

Memorial Day is NOT about posting pictures of your loved ones who have never served in the United States military.  As much as everyone understands your pain and the difficult healing process involved in losing a love one, today is not about them.  I’m sorry.

Memorial Day is NOT about honoring our current military.  If you’ve taken the time to personally thank a Soldier, Marine, Airman, Sailor, or Coast Guardsman that was a very kind gesture, but it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is NOT about decorating the entire town in red, white, and blue or putting up more American Flags than any one person could count.  If that’s your thing, good for you, but do everyone a favor and just wait for Flag Day.  It’s coming up in June.

The Ready Center M00Memorial Day is a a day of remembering all the men and women in our military who have given the ultimate sacrifice (aka HAVE DIED) while serving we the people of the United States of America.  Let me break this down for you.  There are MANY fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, cousins, grandchildren, wives, husbands, fiances, and best friends who will NEVER come back home to their loved ones because they are dead.  There are countless birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, family nights, vacations, kisses, hugs, and joyful smiles that will never happen again…. Ever… because someone didn’t come home from the battle field.

Some daughters will NEVER know what it’s like to have their father give them away at their wedding.  Some sons will NEVER know what it’s like to play ball with their dad.  Others will NEVER know the touch of their spouse or children ever again.  The world will NEVER be the same for these families and should NEVER be for the rest of us.  Brave men and women have selflessly sacrificed the rest of their lives with their family so you and I can celebrate with ours.  For this we should be eternally grateful.

The Ready Center M11If you truly want to observe Memorial Day, I challenge you to find someone who has been widowed or orphaned by a service member, fall to your knees, look up at them trying not to cry, and heartfully muttering something like,

“My heart is truly broken for your loss.  I am so sorry.  I am not worthy of the freedoms that your loved one died for.  I promise that I will live the rest of my life in a manner that is honoring to their sacrifice, and your loss.”

That’s what Memorial Day is about.

Yet another voice from a concerned African-American citizen who refuses stand idle while the current administration attempts to rape her (and the rest of us) of our right to self defense.

“…your freedom needs to be protected.  And how do you protect freedom?  Well let’s just think about the last group of people in this country who were forbidden from owning guns – that would be black people.  Why?  Because we were slaves.  And what would happen if you gave a slave a gun?  Well, they would no longer be a slave…  It’s what keeps a society free, because when a government knows that it’s citizens can rise up against it – well, they’re a little less inclined to enslave it’s population.  It’s why every dictator in modern history has begun with a gun ban in their country under the auspices of protection and safety.  But what it did was disarm the citizenry.”

Don’t be a slave.  Learn from history.  Stand up for your rights.  Fight for your freedom.

Imagine this scenario: You lose electricity for a couple of weeks starting this evening.  Now look around your house and ask yourself a few questions. How would you cook?  How would you bathe or shower?  How would you keep you and your kids warm.  What would you use to keep your kids (more…)
