I also think that when the jails get released there are many gang members from many gangs, they will get armed fast and that will be a problem not only for the people but for the government trying to control the people. These gangs have guns every were and will love a SHTF.
They say that the gangs are bigger that the amount men in the military and they have arms that many of us do not have. Chicago will be a big problem. The police can’t control them right now so when there is a SHTF they will take over that city.
