Why do people think I'm wierd for having a "Bug Out Bag"?

I'm 21 in college and all my friends think I'm weird or a creep for having one. I'm really discrete about it but when they ask me to see it I show it to them and they look at me like I'm a nutjob. In it I have:

-Emergency shelter (tube tent)

-water purification system(filter and iodine tablets)

-emergency food bars (2500 calories each)


- 5 Bic lighters and windproof/waterproof matches


-first aid kit for minor wound care

-Trauma Kit for immediate life threatening wounds


-two survival knives and a hatchet for firewood

- two .45 ACP handguns with about 50 rounds

I keep all this in a backpack and don't ever intend to use it; I just like to be prepared but for some reason people treat me like a nutjob for having this............howcome?

    Well I mean where are you taking it? Do you never take the backpack off? Do you just keep it in your car... Like what are we talking here?

    And they'll keep making fun of you until a disaster happens and then you'll suddenly be the go to guy. Personally I would never tell people that I even had it until it was needed and you may end up in trouble with the college for the guns and get expelled.
