Yesterday I gave my boss 15 rounds of OO, some BB magnum shells, and some #4 shot shells in exchange for a very nice bottle of wine.
I'd be willing to trade a box or 2 of ammo here or there to those I know and trust. Loan out guns? Not without a MASSIVE breakdown in civil society, and I mean Katrina level. And even then, it would be a case by case basis.
As for my neighbors? I don't interact with most of them. The ones on either side of me I am pretty sure have guns of their own- one is a blue collar guy, and the other is a young hothead kid living with his Momma, who I know has at least hunting guns. I have a 25 year old nurse across the street who is as clueless as they come, and who would probably run off to her Momma and Daddy's house at the first sign of trouble. There's a gal who was a Marine down the block. There's some Mexicans on the corner that blast pistols into the air on New Year's eve, which is totally irresponsible, and burns me up, but... There's also a Puerto Rican family from Texas, and they have shooting range stickers all over their work truck, so that tells me all I need to know about them.
I live in an ethnically diverse, mixed blue & white collar middle class subdivision in a pretty liberal big city, but this is still the South. Even my neighbor who is big into local Democratic politics has let it slip in conversation he has a Colt SAA .45

Some post-election rioting? Even Katrina level civil breakdown? I don't worry about that much here. One, if things DO get that bad, I'd think that most of us would be banding together pretty quickly to take care of essentials and look out for one another. And if you think that the Mexican and Nepali and Burman immigrants are interested in some idjidts messing up their American dream, well, the idjidts are going to find out real quickly that people who earned what they got are willing to fight to keep it. And i wouldn't want to tangle with anyone who spent their formative years during the Burman civil wars.

I have to pass by 3 houses going out and coming in where Biden signs have appeared in the last few days

Well, Halloween is coming, maybe that’s the scariest thing they could think of.

To answer the question, though, No. Most folks who don’t own guns are the snowflakes who have been telling us guns are evil and should be confiscated. Let them live with the consequences of their liberal views.

Tough call. I'd worry more about a couple of them shooting themselves (or me, inadvertantly). I have thought about sacrificing my rust-o-matic truck as a barrier on our street's T-intersection to deter drive-bys or at least get a chance to stop an active one.

Obviously this is not the situation we're talking about but the guns were purchased by him to quote a congresswoman some people did something stupid an he goes to jail for 20 years.

Here in Virginia, due to an election of a Democratic Governor and Legislators, It is no longer legal to transfer a firearm without a Background check. SO no, especially to Liberals. That is if I had any.

No, for the same reasons I wouldn't hand some random AH my keys or debit card.

If I don't know you now, I probably won't know you then. . . . unless you are a Vet, First Responder/Doctor or Pornstar!

Nope. I will protect myself, my family and my property. As for the neighbors, they can live or die by their choices.

Yes, I would absolutely help my neighbors. They are my neighbors, they are vested in the safety of the neighborhood, just like me.

I'd gladly loan a gun to a vet, first responder, or doctor. The pornstar is going to have to earn her gun.

My neighbors are all well armed as I am. Its rural out here with only one road in. I'm sure we would set up some sort of guard post watching the road.

I have a few friends that I would arm up because they live in different areas that I do. I'd say 90% of the people in my county are well armed so not an issue

I assume that my area is armed.
I really only have one near neighbor.
I don't know them that well.
So...no.

No, not the neighbors I have. They're nice enough people. The ones I care most about are already armed. Maybe not the most tactically minded people, but they're armed. One of our most vocal local critics of law enforcement is another neighbor, who happens to have inherited a house on my street. Not arming her or her wife. The spiritualists at one end of the street and the old folks at the other end are not likely to be able to mount any kind of a meaningless defense; it would be a waste of resources to arm them. The doubt that the educators who make up much of the remainder on the street are wiling to employ deadly force, even if it were warranted situations of self defense.
