    Too much technology, programmed by people who think they know what's best for you.

    no turning around if you are on the freeway... a few years ago, some "protestors" had their hands concreted in drums across the freeway lanes. that is just plain asinine!

    Watch me.

    I'll even go up the side to get out of there. First minivan you ever saw do that, guaranteed.

    Had a situation here in town last night were a mob stopped and surrounded an approaching car on the street. The car lurched forward, knocked several out of the way, and kept going. Now the police are asking for the public's assistance in locating the driver.

    From the comments I've seen on a local news website, don't think the police are going to get much cooperation from the public in finding the driver. A lot of sympathy for the driver, none for the mob.

    I will stay away from where this stuff happens. For those that can't some states allow a loaded AR pistol with a CC. It's not a rifle after all. 30 rounds of rifle ammo per mag could be useful. I think it's OK in my state. But I will just stay away from those areas.

    My vehicles too. Just have to make sure my hubs are locked in if I am expecting trouble.

    Perfect opportunity for a roadside whiz.

    Both KY and TN - the two states I'm likely to be in the most - allow for the ise of deadly force to prevent being forcibly removed from your vehicle by anyone other than law enforcement.

    My plan - back up and leave, if possible. If not, I'm not letting a crowd get near my vehicle and risk being pulled out. If they don't let me move, I will move them. As soon as I am able, I'll call local LE and advise them of what happened, so as to avoid any issues with leaving the scene of an accident. I'll also have a lawyer ready to roll and my conversation with the police will be short and sweet: "Officer, I was afraid the crowd would attempt to pull me or my family out of the vehicle. That wasn't going to happen".
