Are People Actually Going To Area 51? Why It’s A Bad Idea, And Why Going Armed Could Get You (Even More) Killed


If you’ve been on the internet or watched the news in the past week, there is no doubt that you’ve heard of the hypothetical ‘raid’ on Area 51 in Nevada. Over 1 Million people have RSVP’d as going, but 99.9% of them won’t show up.

Even if 99.9% of them don’t show, that still leaves 1,100 people who will show up. Or, as I like to call them, the .01% pain-wishers.

While the event itself was started as a joke, there is no doubt that some will show up. Will they actually try to get on the highly-secured base?

The event description tells us;

We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.

While it’s an obvious joke, what happens if people truly show up?

Well for starters, they’ll need to not step foot on the property, because the US Air Force has said that they’ll take measures to protect it’s base.

“[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” USAF spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told the Washington Post. “The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

Since we’re a concealed carry website, let’s discuss it a little further. What if people show up, enter the property, and they’re armed?

If it’s a firearm that’s found during a search (eg. concealed), they’re going to be arrested on the spot. If it’s a visible firearm, they’d better hope that they have a guardian angel.

Everyone’s best bet? Don’t go. Even if they do have knowledge of aliens and UFO’s, it’s not like they’ll just hand over the information or have it easily accessible.

But if that .01% do decide to go, it could honestly get messy. Over 1,000 people storming a US military base is no joke.
