Gun Owners Ignoring This Skill Could Get People Killed

gun owners

Most gun owners love nothing more than firing off a few rounds on a warm afternoon. In fact, most of them are either in training or have trained with the best of them in order to prepare.

This dedication is not only admirable, but it’s also smart. After all, being able to shoot (and shoot well) has a ton of benefits. It allows you to hunt effectively, as well as to defend yourself and your family in a crisis.

But I have just one question. Is shooting really the end-all be-all of the prepping world? I mean, is this the number one skill every prepper needs in order to survive?

Not necessarily.

There’s one prepping skill that even the most experienced gun owners refuse to acknowledge. And this ignorance could easily become deadly to themselves and others in an SHTF situation.

Sure, this survival skill may not be glamorous, but learning about it sure beats bearing the consequences of choosing to ignore it. After all, by not learning this incredibly important skill, you could be letting people die right and left on your watch.

Pay close attention, because what I’m about to tell you can easily save your life.

Gun Owners Ignoring This Skill Could Get People Killed

Learning To Treat A Gunshot Wound

Learning to treat a gunshot wound is by far one of the most important survival skills to learn. However, unfortunately, many people choose to ignore opportunities to learn about this skill.

Don’t get me wrong – guns are important. However, most preppers only think of how to shoot someone else. They often have no idea how to treat a gunshot wound.

Not knowing this valuable information can easily cause you to bleed out, or to let those around you die. The stakes are just too high to not learn this information.

The first thing you need to know is there are approximately four different types of gunshot wounds that can occur. And each of these must be dealt with in a specific way. Therefore it’s crucial you know how to help stop the bleeding in every unique scenario. Otherwise you could cause further damage to the body.

Be sure to pay attention to these details. You’ll need to know how to deal with the specifics of each of these gunshot wounds as they occur!

1 – Shot To The Head

Most preppers think this is an immediate death sentence. However, this is not always the case. Shockingly, the human skull is surprisingly thick. As a result, many people can survive these horrible wounds IF they get proper immediate medical attention.

Follow these instructions from Gun Buzz in order to help save someone (or yourself) from dying:

Attempt to control the bleeding with direct pressure as best you can (no tourniquets around the neck).

Make sure the blood doesn’t choke the person.You can have a conscious person sit up and lean forward, or turn an unconscious person on their side and bend the top knee forward to keep them that way.

If you believe a carotid artery (that large artery on either side of the neck that supplies the brain) is nicked, you can apply soft direct pressure, and include an occlusive dressing.

2 – Shot To The Chest

The chest is the largest and most common place to get hit by a bullet. As a result, you may need to treat a few of these in a survival situation.

According to Gun Buzz:

The chest is the largest target, and likely to be the one to be damaged in either a firefight or an accident.

The biggest concern with a chest wound is the fact it contains many of the body’s organs, and that being true it means the risk of serious injury is very high. Not to mention a bullet entering the chest cavity could easily be introduced into the spinal column, causing paralysis.

It’s for this reason that you’ll want to keep a chest wound victim still, unless you can be certain the bullet is not going to affect the spinal column.

Treating a chest wound is different than the treatment of other wounds. Rather than applying direct pressure, you’ll want to place a small object over the entry point. (such as a credit card) This will prevent air from being sucked in, but will still allow air out of the cavity. Hold the object here until help arrives.

As the Survival Doctor writes:

Open chest wounds are also nicknamed sucking chest wounds because they suck air in and can lead to a collapsed lung. You can help stop the sucking by closing the open wound with an occlusive dressing.

Remember the spine is also included in the back of the chest. Be very careful about movement of these victims. You want to keep them as still as possible and not damage the spinal cord.

If the heart, the lungs, the spine, or a large blood vessel is damaged, there’s not much you can do outside getting immediate expert medical care.

3 – Shot To The Abdomen

Not only is getting shot in the abdomen incredibly painful, but it’s also really dangerous. With so many internal organs, blood vessels, and arteries in the way, it’s incredibly easy to rupture these (either with a bullet or when caring for the wound). The risk of bleeding out from this injury is incredibly high.

Here’s how to take care of it according to Gun Buzz:

If someone is shot in the abdomen you’ll want to apply direct pressure with a sterile bandage as soon as possible.

If the intestines have torn, this person will need immediate attention as the risk of infection is high. If you’re in a situation where medical help will arrive within hours, continue to keep the wound clean as best as possible by using water and clean dressings.

Again, direct pressure will be your best friend here.

If you’re out in the wilderness and have no such materials then packing the wound tight with dirt will be your next best option in order to keep the blood loss at a minimum.

Though unsanitary, this will prevent the person from bleeding to death before they die of infection.

4 – Shot To The Limbs

Many people don’t believe being shot in an arm or leg is that serious. However, this wound can easily become deadly if it is not properly cared for.

Here’s how to care for the wound, according to Gun Buzz:

First you’ll want to elevate the limb above the heart if possible. The reason why is if the injury is below the heart, the heart will continue to pump blood in that direction, incapable of stopping. This will cause catastrophic blood loss.

After that, it’s important to apply direct pressure to the wound. Ideally you’ll use some kind of clean cloth like a towel, or a rag, and wrap it around the wound and apply direct pressure on top of it. This should keep the victim’s blood in their body where it belongs.

On the occasion this doesn’t work then you’re going to want to use a tourniquet. Tourniquets will stop the flow of blood from higher up, keep the amount of blood going to the injury at a small ebb. Do be careful when applying a tourniquet. Many people mistakenly believe they can just tighten a belt around the injured limb and call it good.

Not only does that not work as effectively as something like an Israeli bandage, that kind of tourniquet can cause such intense pressure that it eventually damages the limb, leading to eventual amputation.

Note: Although this information can easily help save someone’s life, it is NO REPLACEMENT FOR PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ATTENTION.

Contact whomever you can to help get the person to safety. However, these tips can easily help keep the victim alive for up to two hours before medical attention arrives. Remember – Prepare Now, Survive Later!

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
