When I took my CERT class, they broke us into four groups on the first night and we had to list what we would need to survive a disaster. 

I'm not bashful, so I talked to the group and told them we needed four things: rifle, shotgun, and a pistol with plenty of ammo for each.

They thought I was nuts, but that was our list. We got called on first and of course I volunteered to present our list. I read our items and the room was dead quite. I followed up with simple statement that we are going to take everything that are on your list.

The instructor then asked the other groups if any of them had considered any type of defensive items? Not a single group did. He pointed out that it was outside of the scope of the CERT training, but we had just made a very vivid point that with our list, we know controlled every list. He talked some about safety, but the CERT class being a government class left self protection out for the most part.
