Reply to "The Bro Gun"

Sub-$300 C&R bolt action rifle (Mauser, Arisaka, etc..) handed off to be carried in "amber status" (loaded w/empty chamber, safety on) at all times would be my preferred way handle "Bro Gun" hand outs.  Plenty of decent DA/SA surplus handguns  are also in the Sub-$300 range (some of which are also C&R eligible).  Handguns would also be handed out in "amber status" with instructions that it stays that way unless a need to fire/return fire arises.  If anyone makes an attempt to chamber a round outside of a justifiable event, they'll be considered hostile and treated as a enemy who's threatened lethal force against me.

This provides a small measure of protection from infiltration of a hostile person, as well as providing some protection from ND's.  I do not like the idea of untrained or poorly trained people carrying hot firearms around me, even more so in a potentially dangerous environment.  If I know a person fairly well and trust that their level of training is beyond that of an average LEO/MIL schmuck, then I'd be willing to let them carry in "red condition" or perhaps loan them something better.

That's my outlook on equipping people during a natural or manmade disaster event, YMMV
