Rise of the Prepper – Could the Recent Popularity Cause Problems for Preppers?
Off Grid Survival
As Americans grow concerned about our future; Guns, Gold and Emergency Food are all selling at record levels. From T.V. Shows about preppers, to a number of states preparing so called Doomsday Bills, it seems that the prepper lifestyle is going mainstream.
So what does that Mean for Preppers?
In my opinion, if you haven’t stocked up on what you need – NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT!
With Guns, Gold and Emergency Food sales at a record high, there’s a growing concern that shortages are about to hit the marketplace. As people begin to stock up on preparedness related items, we will likely see nationwide shortages similar to what happened during the elections in 2008.
According to the FBI, Americans are buying a record number of guns. It started right around last Christmas, when over 1.5 million background checks were requested by gun dealers in December of 2011. That’s the highest number of background checks ever requested in a single month, and according to the latest numbers it looks like sales are expected to rise.
