Less so guns than food and water here. Not much to shoot after the first few squirrels, and research has showed that in a disaster people are usually pretty well behaved. A gun might be nice, but I'm thinking a revolver would work as well as an AR in a lot of places.
In a flood you go higher, tornadoes destroy a small area so help can be fairly quick coming. Major earthquakes or major blizzards though, you may be on your own for a while.
Apparently that research didn't include NO after Katrina & NYC after sandy. Rapes, assaults & theft by violence were rampant. Heck in NO they even had a couple of cops kill some folks for $#!+$ & giggles. And a shotgun is generally the best choice unless you spend ALOT of time training.
