    What would your EDC kit look like during a Civil War? Most importantly how would law-abiding citizens, identify themselves going about daily routines, versus socialist activists and criminals? (dress code/IR patches etc.) Please don't discuss personal details but just a recommended EDC for safety and in the event of an attack by the alt-left.

    Poll: I tried to include every major political party to choose from: also included none of above for you mysterious types. I'm a Republican, but I would entertain the Working Families Party if the GOP self-destructed: it's qausi-Marxist with bi-partisan support that weighs heavily on creating policy to build a strong middle class. But only if the career politicians from the DNC stayed out of it, otherwise I would probably digress from supporting any political party. We can analyze the party affiliation to determine agenda and EDC to some extent. Socailist/Commies like AK's and comblock loadouts as we have sene with ANTIFA and other socialists. Conservatives tend to lean towards modern weapons and classic military arms. Green Party would use non-lead frangible low emission weapons like bow and arrow.. Democrats would refuse to use firearms because they are anti-gun.. Independents are free to choose.. ;) (sarcasm incorporated)

    My EDC would be:
    Existing concealed 9mm with spare mags. Or 45 Auto with spares. IWB. Loose clothing to facilitate rapid movement. Hydration pack with nut bars, trauma kit with tourniquets, capable flash-light, pocket knife, emergency meds, a communication device (cell/mini emergency radio to warn of violent events to avoid).

    An add-on would be a carbine with spare mags locked in my vehicle in a hardened steel cage out of sight in the boot. (not something that can be smashed and grabbed) I have a security system in my vehicle and by the time they might be able to cut the cage open it would amass a pretty big group of police or security. I can provide my own security when in rural areas.

    Thoughts:
    It seems as though there is an increasing probability of civil unrest due to extremist activists in America (BLM, ANTIFA, DNC etc.): I ran into a free speech rally last year and the liberals responded in mass and used verbal and physical threats. They also threatened the police and in some cases pushed them around. If it were not for the police presence the 1st Amendment folks would have been eaten alive. One free speech activist was trying to explain to the media that he was not a neo-Nazi or a White Supremacist but it was futile. (the response was sponsored by DNC backers)
    It's clear these new liberal activists are super-charged and willing to get violent especially en mob: the media tries to marginalize it but we have seen ANTIFA had plans to use weapons and coordinated attacks. I realize it's best to avoid these mobs but it's not always practical. And what if you have a child or a loved one who is caught up in such an event nearby and you need to get them out? We also have opportunists that will predate on the chaos and use it as an opportunity to strike like state-sponsored terrorist organizations with sleeper cells in the US. (this is all well documented).
    There is also the possibility of general civil upheaval, once the liberals catch on to the fact that the DNC is using them to leverage political support and influence knee-jerk legislature. Prior to the mess, President Obama got us in with BLM/ANTIFA there were and are still a number of Socialist and Communist groups in the US with a great deal of coordination and capability. Many of their leaders have been calling for folks to take to the streets (armed) to overthrow the government in general. A less violent Marxist group has called for a non-violent or less-violent civil war since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). Marxist scholars are pointing the finger at Globalists particularly (Bank of Germany) for sparking the GFC. They argue that the Globalists destroy the American economy every 40 years or so usually by manipulating the housing market (real estate) in an attempt to amass more power. Somehow the less educated seem to associate this concept with the DNC, which could not be further from the truth: as the DNC is the Globalist Party. If it comes to Civil War, would you support the destruction of both political left and right in hopes to gain a reset? Or would you cling to the left and right political powers in hopes that it would equalize and the storm would pass? This leans toward libertarian and Anarchist ideology to rebuild a system with smaller government across the board and strengthen existing constitutional protections while supporting independence. (POLL)

    First of all,

    if there is a true CIVIL WAR, you should not be openly posting about your choice of weapons and tactics using a publicly traceable IP address on a public forum.

    Smarten up. That's just bad tactics.

    Secondly, your EDC shoudn't change any from your daily routine. It's for personal defense, as long as you're a civilian going about your every day routine.

    If you're a soldier, you need to be equipped like a soldier would.

    Not discussing tactics, just EDC in light of the probability of civil unrest. Very good advice to secure OPSEC. I'm not delving into covert ops, just EDC. I should have made that more clear.

    And added to the above...much depends upon whether Martial Law is declared...in that event your EDC could very likely get you shot on sight
