Do You Live Anywhere Near These Nine Buildings?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When a disaster is headed your way, you quickly see who in your town is prepared and who isn’t.

What naturally happens is that those who think we survivalists are crazy all end up in the same locations, scrambling for help.

Gas stations… grocery stores… hardware stores… hospitals…

These are the very LAST places you want to go to in order to survive a collapse scenario.

Tempers flare… arguments start… fistfights break out… even riots have been known to happen.

But there are FIVE more “looting hot spots” to avoid when the SHTF.

No Law, No Order

OK, here’s what you must understand about the looter mindset…

When the wolves of our society feel there’s no consequence for their actions, they begin to check off their mental shopping list of freebies.

They think about what they’ve been needing for some time but weren’t able to get because of the expense.

This makes certain locations a hot spot for looting and violence, and you must be on HIGH ALERT if you live anywhere near these five businesses…

1. Check Cashing and Quickie Loan Offices

Check Cashing Business

Those who are used to cashing their paychecks at offices that often don’t require identification — or are just convenient for those without a bank account — know that these places have cash on hand but don’t have the security of a real bank.

2. Auto Parts Stores

Auto Parts Store

During the LA riots of 1992, the auto parts stores were stripped clean within a matter of minutes.

Everything that people needed for tune-ups and repairs, from motor oil to brake pads to carburetors, was stolen.

3. Shoe Stores

Shoe Stores

True story: When conflict broke out in Panama in 1989, the very next day after our initial attack it seemed like every kid in the country had a brand-new pair of shiny white tennis shoes.

Specialty shoe stores that harbor those $200 Air Jordans become one of the first shopping points for young, angry men who couldn’t afford them before the chaos hit.

4. Convenience Stores

Convenience Store

First of all, they’re a prime “target of opportunity” because they’re everywhere.

And they have two things looters prize almost more than shoes: drugs and diapers.

’Nuff said.

5. Sporting Goods Stores

Sporting Goods Store

Another hot spot during the LA riots were sporting goods stores.


Guns. Guns. Guns.

It’s like the ultimate Christmas for criminals who can’t legally buy a firearm and can suddenly get all they can carry for free — without registering.

Are YOU Prepared?

Do an analysis (today) of your home’s location in relation to any of the businesses I’ve mentioned to see if you’re in the potential path of the looting sprees that typically follow any sort of collapse or crisis that may engulf your area.

Then consider your current status on being prepared if your town were to break out in unrest.

  • How much gas is in your car’s tank right now? (Hint: It should be at least half full at all times)
  • How much dry-good food supply do you have stocked away? (Your fridge food will spoil if the power goes out)
  • Do you have supplies to fortify your home against weather (and looters)?
  • Do you have first-aid supplies available? (911 will NOT respond in a collapse)

Procrastination is the biggest enemy of the true survivalist. If you don’t have your bases covered, plan NOW and take little steps each day.

Tiny steps lead to great destinations, and you never know what one single item could mean the difference between life and death.
