I just saw the posted clip this morning. Evidentially a store owner thought he was going to be damaged. He took up a sword to try to defend his business and the clip shows the outcome.

Take it for what it is worth but this is crazy and mob mentality.

Change is not coming, it’s here. This will not go away easily or without very strong action,
(read that “deadly force”), when citizens are attacked.
It is not sufficient to go about lightly armed with a small pocket pistol any longer. To survive encounters like this one calls for serious firepower, so carry enough gun with an amount of ammunition sufficient to convince them to run away or stay there and wait for their ride in the coroner’s van.
I am not advocating unjustified violence but saying,
It is far better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

If I were stupid enough to somehow find myself in the middle of that crap, I'd probably only have my 9mm w/69 pills (4 mags + 1 in the pipe). Should do to get me out I think.

It’s starting to spread even the country music capital got a taste of this crap last night. So is marshall law invoked now? That’s brings us back to shelter in place almost. Isn’t that what the socialist want anyway??
The people out there rioting have no idea what they might be getting into. Marshall law would be a baby step. You recall the urban combat training the military has been conducting over the last few years in cities around the country? They weren't doing that just for fun.

Yes seems that their plans will be coming to fruit.

I tend to agree. Enough ammo or strong enough to drop them like flys. I have come to the dilemma of either 9mm with extra mags or 44 mag with 2-3 speed loaders.

I’m slightly concerned about Gulfport rioting, a college buddy of mine called me yesterday to let me know his sister was leaving Walmart on 49 and she saw a large group of people that she assumed were gonna start rioting, I never heard anything else about it though.
I slept lightly last night though, AR with 3 mags beside the night stand and a Glock 40, Walther PPS, Ruger LCP, and M&P 40 on the night stand, if it goes south it’ll go south quick and while I have a slight trust of our 3 immediate neighbors (all vets, one is in corrections) there are a few parts of our neighborhood that may be breeding grounds for riot activity.

A few of the things I have taken from this incident:

1. Pistols are great for concealment, but when you're facing this much unrest, you need a long rifle, and the bigger the magazine the better long as it's reliable. Machetes or bows don't count.

2. Don't break your perimeter, be it house, business building, car, or whatever! Jumping into the mess is a great way to get badly hurt and killed. Standoff distance becomes more and more important, as does disparity of force.

3. I suspect most of the rioting will remain in the "Main St" areas with businesses, particularly big box places. The suburbs are not only not the best place to get a big screen TV (or anything else in a one-stop five-finger discount), they are also more heavily defended. The big corporations can absorb it better and won't lift their fingers to stop it. Small business owners whose lives and livelihoods are tied fully into that business, well we all remember the lesson of the Korean business owners during the King riots.

4. Don't depend on government to protect you or your business. Also: Stand Your Ground laws are important! If you have a business in the affected area without it, you can be arrested and removed. Then your business gets burned to the ground. And insurance won't pay for damages due to riots, insurrections, acts of war, etc so they lose it all.

5. Much of this could be stopped by sufficient application of high-velocity lead, with legal immunity for doing so.

6. Avoid the areas at all costs. if you find yourself stuck, surrounded--get out of there and run someone over if needed to do so--your life is terribly at risk!

I see a distinct pattern: "D" . Definitely a RED - BLUE divide.

What's the pat phrase usually invoked here? "Elections have consequences …"

Captain Obvious, Out.

ETA: Several miles from Memphis with no need to travel there, but ...

Doing firearms functions checks, PM and ammo inventorying today. Just in case.

Trump announced today that the US Govt will declare ANTIFA a terrorist organization. This means they will be subject to US Code, Title 18, Chpt 113B. This is includes such things as NSA surveillance, and capture/kill. Anyone who provides them support in any manner is also subject to the same law.

Does the president do it by E.O., or does the State Department have a say/action to take? Congress?

Either way, with Pres. Trump and Secretary Pompeo, this is probably a done deal.

Good. Finally.

Thinking out loud and looking for ideas here in light of recent troubles in many of America's big cities.


We live in a racially-mixed suburban neighborhood, somewhat close to Memphis.

I don't know for sure, but I would guess 50/50 black/white, maybe 60/40. Mostly older families.

We're older, retired and have lived in our subdivision for 11 years. Abt. 165 or so homes here.

No family ties for me for 1,000+ miles. None for my wife.

We don't know our neighbors, and generally, we like it that way. We don't attend church.

We know who our neighbors are, their vehicles, friendly waves, etc., generally 2-3 houses nearby: left, right, across the street, etc. Not much more than that.

We're not involved with Community Watch etc. Not sure if there even is one here. No neighborhood defense plan that I'm aware of, LOL!

Don't know if we could or should rely on any of our neighbors should it come to that.

We're generally private and self-reliant people (i.e., well-prepared and well-armed), but we're only two people, both over 60.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Ideas?

Please, though, no "Meet-The-Neighbors" open house or pot-luck suggestions.

Apologies, if too much info.

You might be able to score bonus points with the 44 mag
like 2 flys for 1 Shot or even 3 flys for 1 Shot :lol3:

Title 18 is the Federal Criminal (Penal) Code, and therefore is under the control of the Executive Branch. Congress has no say in it since it's already been thru the Legislative Branch for many years. Although they may try to exert some authority by introducing one or more bills to limit the Presidents authority under this and related Titles. And some activist judges may try to pull the same crap they did with immigration. They will fail, but it could delay implementation.

People charged under this chapter are not subject to any courts other than the Federal District Courts, which have exclusive jurisdiction. And since USSC only hears Constitutional cases there would be no appeal to them. This Chapter also permits the assistance of the US Military if requested by the AG. Such assistance would necessarily be in accord with various parts of Title 10 - one of those being the Insurrection Act which has already been discussed.

Bottom line here is that ANTIFA is about to have the entire weight of the Govt. fall on them.

If that "weight" is the FBI under its current leadership, they probably don't have much to worry about.

Under DOJ, that's a different matter.

Just some thoughts...
- What is around you that would attract a mob? Pharmacy, Govt Bldg, Big box corp store...
- If you can't recruit/rely on next door neighbors then your left on your own. I would expect police response times to be longer than usual...
- Harden the home.
- Always have an exit plan. Can your vehicle push thru a crowd?
- Thinking non-lethal means (tear gas, mace, high-speed paint balls...) would be ok to use to try an deter a mob at the entrance to a neighborhood but not defending your front yard.

The FBI would certainly be involved although I don't know to what extent. DHS would be also, among others. We'll have to wait and see what the EO specifics are.

Thanks.

Again, I don't know my neighbors but I STRONGLY suspect that we'd be on our own.

Home is hardened, less security cameras -- and they will be going in within 90 days. ETA: suburban home on .50 acre.

Unfortunately, there is a local Target Store too close for comfort to us. And the other assorted nearby strip mall stores … TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Academy Sports, etc. One nearby liquor store.

No government buildings or pharmacy close by, except inside the Target Store.

We have a very modern SUV that could push thru a crowd if we had to, but we're pretty much in a "defend-in-place" scenario, I think.

I could do a drive-thru/over with my SUV if "I was in fear for my life." Saw a couple of them on Twitter over the past 2-3 days.

And I'm prepared for and OK with that if it comes to that.

Being caught out of our home somewhere else is different. I'll have to re-evaluate our SUV basic load. ETA: Just upped it some.

Maybe buy a Shockwave, etc. for it for some extra punch, if needed.
