An interesting article here about Wyoming state legislator David Miller’s “Doomsday” bill. I’m not sure how helpful any of the actions proposed by the bill would be but perhaps this will serve as a wake up call for those who choose to keep their heads buried in the sand. I mean, if state legislators are preparing for hard times shouldn’t we all be preparing as well?
On the other hand I sincerely hope this bill will not lead people to believe that they can rely on their government to take care of them in the event of catastrophe. Everyone should be prepared to be self sufficient for at least a couple of months in the event of disaster on even a moderate scale. I don’t see anything in this bill that leads me to believe the state of Wyoming would be any better prepared to help their citizens during a time of strife. Perhaps their currency proposal would help in a return to normalcy but that’s about it.
I did not see any link to the full text of the bill, which I’d like to take a look at. This is exactly the type of bill that I would expect to have a “government seizure of privately owned firearms” or some such clause. While I would be shocked if the state of Wyoming would ever let that pass it wouldn’t surprise me at all in California or Massachusetts.
