Would you shoot rioters if they were neighbors?

    According to many here, you should just be a good witness and let the cops handle it. You're not qualified to clear your own home, much less a riot of this nature. :faint:


    My answer, as was said above, if they're old enough to hurt other people, they're old enough to get hurt right back :wow:.


    Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

    I ALREADY know which kids in the neighborhood I'm going to shoot first in case of TSHTF. Although there are 2 less recently since momma did not pay the mortgage and they got evicted.:supergrin:

    Why would you let a neighbor do something that you would shoot a stranger for? Seems like it would take away the justification for shooting anyone at all in the circumstances:dunno:

    After watching a show on the 20th anniversary of the Rodney King riots, where the media interviewed people involved at the time. Rioters, LAPD, Korean merchants, citizens. The thoughts of the rioters today was truly scary. Yes if that time comes and you cannot evacuate to safe ground lots of ammo and shoot to wound I don't want dead bodies stinking up the neighborhood, and I do want fellow rioters to feel the need to carry their buddies to help.

    Of course I would. Who are you thinking you might have to shoot, if not your neighbors? How often do you see a riot where people meet across town to get it started? If you are in the middle of a riot, at your home, your neighbors are the rioters.

    If it meant the survival of myself and my loved ones, I wouldn't hesitate. The neighbors on one side are an older couple, I'd make sure they were safe or have them hunker down with us. The other neighbor, well I've never actually met him. He's got a bit larger property, surrounded by fence and trees, motion sensor lights everywhere, and cameras. I just have a feeling anyone trying to enter his property would leave in pieces. We live down a little dirt road off a main state road. It used to be I could sit out back and just listen to the frogs and crickets, but now more often, I hear the sound of someone's rap rumbling everything in a 1/2 mile radius, and the riff raff seems to be slowly encroaching. Hope I never have to worry about it, but I'm prepared if it were to happen. One poster on a similar thread said something that made perfect sense and kinda brought an evil grin to my face. Something to the effect of the first shot goes to the leader, right to the gut or groin. The screaming cries of pain are demoralizing to the rest of the mob. Next shot goes to anyone who runs to aid him.

    As said...better know the law. Sometimes when the smoke clears the good guys become bad guys under the " law " . When and if my situation becomes the protecting of safety and even life ...all bets are off. The ID of the offender matters not.

    We live at the dead end of a dirt road, very hard to surprise me and even harder to over run me.

    My encouragement to every one is to get out of towns ASAP.

    Someone brought up a good point..."neighbor" does NOT necessarily equal "friend".

    After having lived for some years in a so-called "neighborhood" in a city before moving to our current digs out in the desert...I couldn't count a single "neighbor" a "friend". True...some were folks we'd wave to, or wave to us. Some looked upon my wife and I as "the cops down the street" and thus...either hated us for our jobs, or avoided us for whatever other reason. My next-door neighbors were in their 60's and were as close to friends as we got there.

    The dynamic has changed I suppose in the Home Owner's Association developments many find themselves in. When I was a wee lad...we still had "friends and neighbors" you could count on.

    It is just one of the many things that suck nowadays.

    Yes, that is self preservation if not self defense.

    Detroit. July 23, 1967. 43 dead. 1,189 injured.

    My next door neighbor handed out his gun collection to selected neighbors he trusted, making sure they were armed.

    I clearly remember my father getting a side-by-side 410 shotgun and a handful of shells.

    Some things have changed in 45 years. Some have not.

    when my life or my families is threatened, I will use deadly force to protect myself and my family.

    Why is "who is threatening my life" a consideration?

    I was on a jury where two jurors worried that convicting a pedophile would "hurt his reputation". Who doesn't matter, lives do.

    You guys live in the wrong neighborhoods.

    I would never live in a neighborhood where I thought my neighbors would riot, no matter what the provocation.

    I have great respect for my neighbors, and they have great respect for me. They are honorable and non-violent people. We take care of each other.
