As a trainer, I'm interested. What does one do when one is violently set upon by 30 or more playful, yet oppressed, yutes?


There wasn't one of us. We each carry around 30 rounds. We train. Some of us even have real life experience in uniform. You do the math.

Probably what would happen is that one or two rounds would be discharged and one assailant may be ventilated before the rest of them ran away with all new fudge factories in their fruit of looms. If the mob rushed you true zombie apocalypse style instead of running, you're no better off than being assaulted by one of them.

Yes, I have and you're welcome. I sincerely believe these types of attacks may occur as a result of the upcoming election. It concerns me very much.

There is no evidence that these current "unarmed" violent mobs do not have access to firearms. On the contrary .....

It gotta happen sooner or later. Flash mobs are entirely without consequences now.



Aye, that is the only way to discourage them because they are cowards picking on the sheeple, until someone bites back. That meek guy they warn to attack might just be carrying a .45 or a .357 snubby.

BobK is absolutely correct. It is going to happen sooner or later and the world will change when it does. For the better or for the worse depends how society in general treats the incident when it does happen. If it is viewed as a racial crime and the victim persecuted then it will only serve to further divide society between civilization and the animal kingdom. In the unlikely event that it is viewed by mainstream society as the end of tolerance of barbarian behavior then perhaps there is hope.

In any case I am sure we can expect the rhyming reverends to make things worse.

If 8 black youths attack me or mine I'll shoot, if 8 white youths attack me or mine I'll shoot no matter if they be female or male. I am an equal opportunity survivor.

Anyone who so responds will be beaten like a meat piñata by the Democrat Cheer Leading Media, by the Marching Reverends, and by pols who seek relevance.

It's better to have reporters at my door asking me "Why, oh why did you shoot that poor poor unemployed 20 something who was just turning his life around" than reporters at my door trying to interview my wife how she feels to be a widow.

Perhaps so but I will not use the Zimmerman template for my pre and post shooting behavior. That gives me a leg up on him.

Actually I think, "The gang were effectively beating the life out if me and I had to use my firearm to overcome their disparity of force!" wording effectively fits what I would use as my benchmark for actually having to shoot.
