Community defense as police resources dwindle

Here's a link to a shtfplan.com post which discusses how neighbors are banding together in East Oakland, CA to patrol their own neighborhood to deter crime.  Police resources in their city have been dwindling and police response to the citizens's problems has been underwhelming.  The neighbors have been watching as crime gets worse and worse.  The residents believe they have to choose between doing nothing (and watching crime get worse and worse) or going out together to walk their neighborhood's streets to deter crime.

"Best" combat rifle recommendations

Prior to the closure of the buying opportunity for combat rifles, I wanted to ask this group for their specific recommendations for a high capacity, semi-automatic, not-too-heavy, reliable combat rifle and scope.  Please avoid "jargon" (phrases and abbreviations known to people in the gun scene that are unintelligible to those of us who are not).  Price for rifle needs to be < $2,000 with $1,200 or less much more palatable. A model with good availability of ammo, magazines, case, sling.

Burglary lessons learned

Here's a TV news account of how a mother and daughter handled discovering a burglar in their house in the process of making off with their stuff.  Remember why this is a burglary, not a home invasion: the perp intended to get in and out without being discovered or confronted.  However, the mother came home before he could make his escape (the daughter was asleep upstairs and undisturbed by the burglar).


Toronto Resiliency Group

This group is for people in Toronto or the surrounding area to discuss the hard pressed times we are experiencing today.  The objective is to face reality head on and get some good ideas to build resilience and a community in the Toronto area.  The idea is to talk about the specific issues people are having in Toronto and to build a plan around those issues.

It would be ideal to have enough interest to meet occasionally at a physical location with the purpose of taking action on the topics discussed with the intent on making a change.
