I have been dating this girl for a few months now.

She seems quite intrested my ideas on self reliance and ammo hording.

I'd like to give her a visual to help drive home the idea?

What are the best flicks?

Thanks

I think iRobot with Will Smith is one of the better ones. Just point out that the robots are a metaphor for government. Started out a creation of the people, to help them, but evolved to the point where it's everywhere, self-sustaining, taking over.

Watch the movie, wipe your eyes, and clean your guns(or go shooting). If you don't need to do either of those after watching it, you aint human.

How about the 6 o'clock news?

We were talking about the Sunni/Shite thing in Iraq the other night and about how far removed and impossible it seems from our everyday life. That got us on the subject of how little it would take to put us there however. For instance, what would happen if the KKK decided to blow up the next Ms. Black USA pagent claiming they were tired of the hypocrasy of 'seperate but equal'. What would the ramification to this county be? It really WOULDN'T take much.

Hell, the next Super Bowl, NBA Championship, o rmajor 'racial' court case could be enough.

'Heat'



Just watch in horror as the cops over-react after Evil Black Rifles brainwash the so-called bad guys into a life of crime....it's all just soooooo sad. Al Pacino's character has that gun...you know the one...I just can't think what it's called...anyway


Oh and 'Falling Down'


Another good movie about a man corrupted by the influence of evil firearms. Could have had a happy ending if it were not for the NRA and the stupid American gun culture.

Yep, forget the movies and, instead, show her video clips of hurricanes like katrina, rita, ivan, dennis and andrew (just to name a few). Throw in a dash of new york city during 9/11 and the august 2003 blackout plus some video footage and photographs of the L.A./Rodney King riots and the aftermath of the big 1989 earthquake that took place in california (which occurred near san fransisco, if I recall correctly). Lastly, for kicks and giggles, show her some of the footage of all of the riots that have occurred in france (and the rest of europe, for that matter) over the last few months.


Again, forget the movies because the real-life news networks show plenty of examples on tv everyday.

A better movie to watch or maybe after [or before Schindler's List] is the Ghetto Uprising. What those people did to preserve their liberty is unbelievable.

After watching that moivie, I loaded up some more ammo, and started taking other newbies out to the range. That movie showed how sick some people are and how others rose to the occasion to help others out. By showing others to focus on the front sight I feel I'm helping them out.

I think the movie Trigger Effect would be the best SHTF movie to show your girlfriend, because it's more like a real life story of what could happen.

>they show people trying to buy supplies in stores and since the power is out, they only take cash
[no credit cards]

>they go to a gun store to buy a gun for protection and the dealer jacks up the prices on all guns and ammo

>people panic and try to leave the city because of widespread violence and looting, car jackings

>gas shortages

You're going to us a Hollywood movie to justify a case for having guns and ammo? If you use Hollywood for a rationale, you can make the same case for gun control, getting fingerprints off of wet rocks, cowboys should be married and space invaders are coming.

Why not show her news footage of Katrina aftermath, the LA riots after the Rodney King verdict, the current riots in France, etc.

I see they've already been mentioned, but have her read "Lucifer's Hammer."

Movies: The Day After

The Trigger Effect: Probably most relevant/easily identifiable with

The Trigger Effect (1996)
How tenuous is man's hold on civilization when survival becomes an issue? When the lights go out and stay out for several days, suburbanites Matthew and Annie learn the hard way that man is "by nature" a predatory creature. Matthew's long-time friend, Joe, happens by on the second day and a rivalry between the two friends simmers as Annie cares for her sick baby. When rumors of looting spread through the neighborhood, the two men buy a rifle for protection but Annie throws it in the pool. Later, that same night, Joe hears a prowler downstairs and awakens Matthew. They chase the stranger from the house and out into the street where a neighbor shoots him to death. No longer safe in their own home, they decide to drive to Annie's parents some 500 miles away. Before they reach their destination, more trouble comes their way when they stop to siphon gas from an abandoned car and discover the driver in the back seat... Is this what is meant by "man's inhumanity to man?"
