Categories: Survival


What can you do to survive martial law?

The prospect of martial law might sound bleak, but remember that there is no situation too challenging for a true survivalist. It could very well be that martial law is “the big one” you’ve been preparing for all along. Many of the survival skills you’ve learned for other situations still apply here. Read on to learn what to do to increase your chances of survival in a martial law situation.

1. Come up with an evacuation plan.

Always have an evacuation plan ready in the case of martial law or other SHTF event

Rumors or predictions from experts may alert you to impending martial law. Families living in cities should use the time leading up to the declaration to plan and practice an evacuation to a shelter away from populated areas.  Make sure your vehicle gas tank is always full and store disaster supplies in the trunk of the car. Send survival supplies to the shelter site before evacuation is needed. Read more…

2. Learn to use a weapon, and train your family.

Learn how to handle a firearm and practice often to protect yourself and your family during martial law

Purchase additional firearms and ammunition. Make sure every family member understands how to safely use firearms. Plan to use a silent weapon like a bow and arrow for hunting game so as not attract the attention of anyone nearby. Learn what game lives in your area and how to find it. (Even urban environments have game like squirrels and birds.) Read more…

3. Keep food, weapons, and other supplies hidden.

During a martial law situation, hiding food, weapons and other supplies is essential to survival.

Even if your preps are kept at home they should be hidden well enough to go undetected by the first and even second sweep of your home that the military will conduct. Every home varies in its construction so there are no hard and fast rules but think carefully and act accordingly. Consider caches underground on your property, preferably in areas where disturbed ground is not suspicious. In urban and suburban environments under flower beds would be a viable position. If you have acreage then be careful to keep the ‘lay of the land’ as differences will be noticed. All goods should be stored with avoiding sniffer dogs and metal detectors in mind.Read more…

4. Play it cool.

Though it may be tempting, try not to agitate military officers or do anything suspicious or aggressive

When the military does drop by, hide your contempt. This may go against the grain, but the survival of you and your family is your number one priority. Ask a few questions but not too many. You need to be the grey man, totally unmemorable. Nothing you say or do, nothing about the way you look should make you memorable. Keep a cheap weapon and a few rounds to handover for when you are asked to hand over your weapons. Read more…

5. Trust no one.

During martial law, trust no one but your closest friends and family — and especially don’t trust government officials.

Never take the government’s word at face value-except when they tell you that they’ll kill you. Government-it’s components of career politicians, bureaucratic vermin, and SS ninja wannabes live, have lied. For a lot longer than you’d think. It’s the very job; being part of an empire wrapped in the cloak of American political traditions of Freedom, that corrupts. All that power, attracting the most venal along with the most patriotic to defend America. All that license under ever mutable law written by money whores to lie, steal, embezzle, blackmail, extort, poison, torture, enslave, murder. Read more…

6. Familiarize yourself with your surroundings.

During martial law, it is important to know your surroundings in case you need to hide or escape.

Whether it’s your home, property or encampment you need to have a plan. Take security into account as well as a good escape or evasion plan. Never get pigeonholed or pinned into a corner, have multiple escape routes if need be ultimately leading to your primary remote bug-out location. If more people than yourself are involved, make sure and have a group plan with back up plans. Take pets into consideration and make accommodations at all costs as they are part of your family too.
