Yes, it is.
Time for what?
Time to examine the possibility of buying/owning a useful weapon for personal, and home, defense.
I'm speaking about purchasing a LEGAL firearm, learning how to use it SAFELY, and practising its use at a local range.
It seems a lot of folks are armed to the teeth these days. Ammo is still in short supply, and very expensive. Someone, in addition to the military, is buying it up as soon as it hits the market.
If things do happen to explode (and I hope they do not), it will be important to be able to defend yourself and your loved ones.
This is especially important for minorities who might well be scapegoated (IE: LGBT folks, Mexicans, etc.)
This is not about offensive action. Nor do I suggest reckless or illegal use of any weapon -- this is purely about last ditch self defense, giving yourself a chance to live, and perhaps fight another day.
Hopefully the true spirit of America will prevail -- but, there's an awful lot of loose talk making the rounds these days. It's time to take precautions.
