There is nothing that will enrage a mama bear (any mother that is), to protect her children and family. After seeing the deadly chaos that unraveled in Charlottesville, and TV screens around the US showing neo-Nazis with assault rifles and guns, wearing camouflage -- these mamas (myself included), started googling furiously.

This will be our first post (of many) on showcasing the best items to help protect your family during uncertain times.

Why Buy A Gas Mask?

Gas masks are probably the easiest item to buy that, in the event of a foreign agent in the air, will make or break your survival expectancy. A NBC (Nuclear, biological, and chemical mask) are the only masks to buy because they cover the top three threats that a soldier would face, which is why military personnel have them while at war in targeted areas. Alternatively, a NBC gas mask will protect against Nuclear, Biological and Chemical attacks, but if you want to go one step higher, and it is available, get a CBRN gas mask if you can afford one. They are the most expensive and designed for first responders in a terror attack.
