UNITED STATES, [US]--If a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or other unforeseen apocalypse hits the US, doomsday preppers will be ready. They've already been stockpiling food, buying water filters, and hatching escape plans — in some cases for years. Recently, preppers seem to have found another reason for concern: Donald Trump's election. At least a handful of American prepping supply companies have seen spikes in sales since Election Day. My Patriot Supply, an Idaho-based emergency supplies company, doubled its online sales during the week of Inauguration Day compared to the same week in 2016, marketing VP Keith Bansemer tells Business Insider.In the three months leading up to Election

CHARLOTTE, [NC]--A raid that uncovered a bunker full of firearms on a property in Cleveland County is another sign that anti-government rhetoric is on the rise, law enforcement experts said. Former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker said there has been a resurgence of anti-government groups across the nation. Prosecutors have called Reuben DeHaan a "sovereign citizen" and said he didn't believe that he was required to pay taxes. Attorneys filed charges against him for tax evasion. A search of his property April 21 turned up about 80 guns and a fortified underground bunker. Federal prosecutors filed additional charges on April 22 and said some of the guns were illegal.

DALLAS, [TX]--Local artist, Ace Cordell says he considers his “Zombie” truck artwork. “No it’s not scary. It’s more humorous than anything else. It’s Hollywood. It’s completely pretend. If you think this is serious, then you need to re-evaluate what you think about our society,” he says. None of the guns or skulls on the black pickup are real. But the owner of a rental property next door to where Cordell parks it says she doesn’t want it parked in front of her house. She thinks the truck fit for any doomsday prepper may scare off potential tenants. Now messages left between between Cordell and his neighbor are receiving attention on social media. But a no parking zo

TAMPA, [FL]--As owner of AR Tactical gun shop in Plant City, John Russell Richards supported law enforcement, his lawyer says. But Richards, 34, ran into trouble selling guns to a doomsday survivalist group. And on Wednesday, he was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for irregularities in the records he created for seven of the 50 weapons he sold to Martin Winters, a Brandon-area survivalist who last year was sentenced last year to 30 months in federal prison on weapons offenses. Winters was arrested in June after an undercover FBI agent recorded conversations in which Winters said he was ready to injure and even kill federal agents if they came onto his property when the apocalypse cam
