What to Do During a Break In

Do a Google search for “what to do during a break in” and you’ll find lots of confusing and contradictory advice. In this article we’ll discuss what to do (and not to do) during a break-in if you (or you and a spouse) are the only ones at home during a break in.

In addition to all the articles about “what to do on Spring Break” and “what to do during a break up” you’ll find articles and advice from a variety of sources. Lots of that advice is contradictory because it comes from different viewpoints and agendas. Some may suggest you stand your ground while others recommend you run for the hills. One even says you “might” want to stay if you have children in your home. Several seem to think you can reason with the invaders or that you will only make things worse by provoking them, as you will see below.

Because the strategies for dealing with a home invasion are different based on your family situation and living arrangements, one article was simply not enough. Here, then, is part one of two on what to do during a break in.

Nearly eighteen years ago, Mike and Susan Gonzalez had a life changing experience.

“August will be 18 years and I still live with it everyday,” said Susan.

Her home now has burglar bars and there are no trespassing signs posted on her North Jacksonville property.

It was around 12:40 a.m. when she heard a rustling sound at the front door. Gonzalez said she left the couch to unlock the front door for her son when someone kicked the door in.

He was a young gunman bent on shooting as many worshippers as possible, but Matthew J. Murray never got as far as Dylann Roof, the suspect in Wednesday’s South Carolina church massacre.

Murray had already shot and killed two people in the parking lot when he burst into the New Life Church in Colorado Springs. Before he could pull the trigger again, however, the 24-year-old shooter was gunned down by Jeanne Assam, a volunteer security guard with a concealed-carry permit.

That was eight years ago, but even though Ms. Assam was credited for saving as many as 100 lives that day, a dozen states continue to restrict the carrying of concealed firearms in churches — including South Carolina.

The Emanuel AME Church shooting that left nine dead Wednesday prompted not just a surge in calls from the left for tighter gun-control laws, but also pleas from the right for churches to protect themselves by allowing their parishioners to pack heat.

Saving Yourself in a Crowd (Surviving the Urban Mob)

Mobs are dangerous. Highly emotional and impulsive, they often erupt violently. Crowds can turn into mobs if members become indifferent to laws, choose to disregard authority, or take advantage of the perceived anonymity that a large group can provide, and follow instigators into violent acts.

These riots are frightening, fascinating, and shockingly widespread. Headline material for the evening news, mob violence can stem from almost anything from political conventions to concerts, sporting events, jury verdicts, traffic accidents, or defamatory cartoons. If pressed, most of us can think of at least a few riots off the top of our heads, things like Kent State, Tiananmen Square, Seattle Mardi Gras, WTO, Watts, or the aftermath of the Rodney King incident.

DHS Is Gaming Civil War…Are You?

Published on: June 5, 2015

Awhile back, a highly respected security expert was recently approached by a DHS informant who told him that DHS is preparing for Civil War due to a collapse of the dollar, hyperinflation, and the resulting chaos that they expect to happen as a result.

The thing that surprised me is, frankly, why anyone was surprised about it.

One one hand, the economic collapse in one form or another has been in process for several decades and it’s been the subject of novels and fiction for at least 2 decades. Over the last few years, economic collapse has changed from being a fringe concept to being mainstream and generally accepted that some sort of crash is going to happen. The main question is how bad it will be, how long it will last, and how it will play out.

On the other hand, since millions of preppers, including current and former military, law enforcement, and government employees are preparing their families for financial turmoil and breakdowns in civil order, why wouldn’t we EXPECT federal agencies to do the same?

Chances are, you’ve probably seen a TV or movie where a Jack Bauer-type character, on the run from big bad evil, uses cheap throw away phones to communicate unnoticed.

Commonly known as a burner phone, a backup, essentially disposable phone isn’t only useful for secret agents and criminals. There are a long list of reasons why having a spare phone with a different phone number might come in handy — lose/break your primary cell phone, selling something via Craig’s List, traveling and don’t want to risk your $900 smart phone, and so on.

Commo is your lifeline, so you want to do what you can to protect it.

So–how to set up a burner phone? It’s actually very easy and 100% legitimate and legal.

Build Your Own Faraday Cage. Here’s How

Categories: Be Prepared, Education, Skills
Tags: No Tags
Comments: No Comments
Published on: June 4, 2015

A Faraday cage works by three mechanisms: (1) the conductive layer reflects incoming fields, (2) the conductor absorbs incoming energy, and (3) the cage acts to create opposing fields. All of these work to safeguard the contents from excessive field levels. A Faraday cage is particularly useful for protecting against an electromagnetic pulse that may be the result of a high-altitude nuclear detonation in the atmosphere (a.k.a. EMP attacks).

Despite rumors to the contrary, a Faraday cage is not necessary to protect against solar coronal mass ejections because the frequency content of such disturbances is at much lower frequencies—they don’t couple energy efficiently into small-scale electronics, except through conducted paths (e.g., wires coming into the system). A better precaution against solar events is to unplug electronics and use quality surge suppressors.

How much ammunition do you REALLY need? A “rule of thumb” to stockpiling ammo.

Ever since I’ve gotten serious about being ready to defend my home, I’ve heard people tell me that I needed 1,000 rounds of each caliber ammunition that I use or 10,000 total rounds of ammunition.

I’ve always been a bit uncomfortable with those numbers. Not that I see anything wrong with having a lot of ammo on hand, just that I’ve always thought they were rather arbitrary.

Arbitrary numbers bother me, because they clearly have not been though through.

When it comes to the equipment and supplies I have on hand for survival, I believe it is important to make sure that I have what I need, not just some arbitrary number. That means thinking the situation through and making some hard decisions.

So let’s start by defining some things FIRST when it comes to stockpiling ammunition …

This ammo is designed specifically for the new breed of compact 9mm handguns.

Do you suffer from a short barrel? Unfortunately, this problem afflicts millions of gun totin’ Americans.

With the explosive growth of pocket .380 ACP pistols like the Kel-Tec, Ruger LCP, Smith & Wesson Bodyguard and Glock 42, just to name a few, gun makers just had to up the power level as their next move. .380’s are still everywhere, but now we have a new crop of compact 9mm guns. Whether you carry a Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, Beretta Nano, Sig P938 or one of the many other pocket nine’s, you’re probably dealing with a short barrel. And by short barrel, I mean right in the vicinity of three inches.
