Okay so I am a Momon and we are often taught to keep a supply of preps and have open meetings that help prepare as well as the church has a very large cannery that offers times that members as well as non-members can come and can and store their own food at cost. We are not worried about being a target any more than anyone else. The church itself has vast amounts of food and survival/disaster gear available and they respond to every disaster around the world. They will be able to give vast amounts of aid to their members as well as everyone else.
We dont have any reason to hide or pack weapons any different than anyone else. We use common sense just like all of you to be prepared and keep our preps and families safe.
Unless you are privy to very specific information from a credible source, this is, in my opinion, irresponsible and how rumors spread and people become complacent. If you have such a source, I would like to know the person's name and capacity in the church. As far as I know a representative with any standing in the welfare services or a member of the 70 or above has never said anything about this. On the contrary, the doctrine for nearly 100 years has very clearly been to be self reliant. Implicit is to not rely on the church or anyone else. Sure there are canneries and bishop's storehouses, but these are constantly being replenished and do not feed the entire church--and certainly not "everyone else." The statement you make is also overly broad. The church does not respond to every disaster around the world and I am not aware of the church having vast amounts of survival gear. I assisted in the weeks after Katrina, and we provided everything for ourselves. I never saw survival gear and we camped at ground zero of the cleanup operations.
The closest thing I have to anyone discussing this is a person in charge of the welfare region that encompassed all of Idaho and perhaps some other areas. This was not some low level volunteer; he had responsibility and was very knowledgeable. It was 1998-99 time frame in a Sunday night fireside in a stake center in Idaho where he was the only speaker. I was in attendance and this representative addressed food storage and said very directly that the church's stores were never meant to replace the members' obligation to prepare a year's supply. He also mathematically went through how much grain the church had in that region (which as I recall was one of the highest producing areas--it makes sense being in Idaho--look at what you get from the cannery) and then divided that by the number of members and even active members. I cannot recall specific figures, but it was a very short period of time. I think it was a very few weeks at the most for even just active members (think about your year's supply divided by the number of people on your street). But it certainly wasn't for a year or even months. He counseled very plainly to have our own food storage because there would not be enough to go around.
I also asked a person in charge of our local cannery in the area. He would not provide specifics and didn't really want to discuss, but he said there was grain in the silos out back. However, he confirmed that it would not last very long when divided among members. Look at the counsel by church leaders. Some of that is contained in the free LDS Preparedness Manual. Many other quotes can be found by searching the talks.
I don't mean to be curt about this, but the comment is based on fallacy and cannot be allowed to grow. Opinion needs to be clearly stated as such and should have some basis stated. I also think it would be prudent to consider your potential target status and think about possible precautions to take. The story of Hezekiah comes to mind in Isaiah. I actively encourage others to prepare in small or significant ways based on my comfort with them. But to not consider yourself a potential target is short sighted in my view. It's easy to say you won't be a target when the lights are, the police patrol the street, and the stores are open. If you need a year's supply, there has probably been a fundamental shift unless it is just a family disaster.
To everyone else: no, the church does not have enough to feed everyone. No the members don't have enough to feed everyone. In fact, most members do not have a year's supply. I know this from personal experience and from a study our stake president shared with us. However, I cannot recall the specific percent (it was low), so I will not share the figure I seem to recall. A Pew Research study said 82% of Mormon respondents said they keep food storage, but they did not specify how much. 58% had at least a three-month supply. I can tell you that is much higher than where I live and much higher than the year's supply figure. I can't tell you how many times people have said: "I know where I'm going when there is a problem."
I'm with HeavyG on this one. Someone else made a good comment about government officials confiscating. I could definitely see that. Think of the lines used already: the burden of global citizenship, hoarding, more than your fair share, equitable redistribution, etc.
