Got your bug-out bag packed?
Because water is so heavy and you require so much of it, however, its impractical to carry your full water requirement with you. Rather, your kit should have a means to carry water that you can replenish periodically from found supplies (a canteen, for example) and a means of purifying water (chemical tablets, a metal cup in which to boil water, or a filter bottle). Remember, it isnt enough to be able to transport water. You have to be able to make that water safe to drink. Light is critical if you are to continue doing anything at night or in low-light conditions. Most often, the light in your kit will come in the form of a flashlight.

Then again, if the society goes to hell in a big enough hand-basket, I’m not sure there will be THAT many people who CARE whether or not they’re legally carrying those guns.
