The news media, movie companies and the government do not like us to be prepared. They like to be able to control us with food and water when the SHTF. Food is the easiest way to control the people. So they know that preppers have food and water stored and they also know that 99% of preppers have weapons too. It all goes against there rules of control.
Just keep prepping and try your best to get others to prepare too. The more preppers and gun owners the country has the harder it will be for the government to take control of the people.
