I just quickly added sat two statistics side
If you look at the top 5, all but one state is
liberal with strict gun laws.
Now from what I showed, you would think that laws
are bad for deaths, but if you only look at the map
from the bradycampaign.org, it looks quite the

The difference is a matter of statistical opinion.
In the map, they choose DEATHS, without counting
the scenario, how many hospitals are close to
residents, or even who dies (the victim or assailant).

•CDC Firearm Mortality Statistics
•Pew Research Center (for opinions)
•Henry J Kaiser Family Foundation
•Statista has some easy to read charts as well.
All Opinions are Biased and You Cannot Trust
Be wary of a fear-monger that spouts 10% truth
with 90% opinion.

Top Three Ways to Protect Yourself
from Radiation Exposure
Feedback from Patrick, where I made a
mistake on an episode and accidentally said
fluoride helps with radiation exposure.
You don’t use fluoride tablets instead of
iodide tablets for radiation absorption!
My Answer, where I cover my error.
I accidentally said fluoride tablets. I meant
iodide. So instead, I will expand on this and
give you more awesome value.
What are the Three Ways to Protect Yourself
from Radiation Exposure
You Live Closer Than You Think to a Nuclear
If you live in a rural area, especially in the
mid-eastern United States, I Promise that you
are closer than you think to a Nuclear
These babies produce clean and consistent
power… until something goes wrong. So
I recommend you check the map to see
where you live in reference to a reactor.
You need to have an idea of prevailing winds
and what will drift your way. Radioactive
plumes don’t just sit still. They are moved by
the prevailing winds.
Even Better still, many of the reactors were
intelligently built on fault lines. You probably
shouldn’t live in the “death circle,” but if you
do, you need to know how to reduce your
exposure if an accident occurs.
1. Get Out Of Dodge, Bug Out, Leave
If the leak is small enough and you have enough
warning, you can just leave.
Have a Bug Out Location (BOL) that you can go to in
every direction from home. Also, have 3 routes to
get to every BOL.
Have 3 rest points (rally points) on every route in
which you can meet up with your caravan if you get
2. Purchase Potassium Iodine Tablets Now
Radioactive Iodine (Radioiodine, or Iodine 131) is a
product of radioactive decay.
Your Thyroid gland has no idea if iodine is radioactive
or not, and it LOVES IT. It will absorb a bunch of
it. This is why it is so susceptible to radiation
exposure. It is one of the MOST sensitive to radiation
for this reason.
Potassium Iodide is a stable version of Iodine that you
Your Thyroid will fill up on the good stuff. Then, it
can’t absorb the bad stuff because it is full.
This could be the difference between life and death in
Shop Vacs can be used to force HEPA cleaned
air into the house, creating a positive air
pressure in your home, so the nasties have a
hard time entering the home though any cracks
You need to seal off as many openings as
possible to make this much more effective.
This is a good way to create a “clean room” as
Understand ONE THING! The HEPA filters in
your shop vac will now be contaminated, along
with the dust in it, and the shop vac itself. It
will be difficult for you to safely change out
these filters. Shop vacs will also become a
radiation “hot spot” that you want to stay away
You are better off just replacing the entire
vacuum quickly… or fabricate an external HEPA
filter holder you can trash and rebuild.
Obviously, getting a good gas mask will help you by filtering out
radioactive particulates that are full of nasty alpha particles (not bad
out of the body, but especially nasty inside). For this reason, I am not
going to spend much time on it.
HEPA filters have low micron pores. These are typically good enough
to clean the air of radioactive isotopes and Viruses/Bacteria.
Don’t Get Caught in the Fallout
Radiation and Contamination isn’t a joke. Don’t stick around to deal
with the deadly consequences.
You first need to leave. If you can’t leave the area, then you can take
iodine and attempt to purify your air to keep that stuff out of your
