So I guess under this hypothetical situation.... I just let the looters have their way?Jim wrote: ↑Thu Jan 07, 2021 10:35 amHave you trained to quickly shoot to kill people? If not, you may end up like the pastor a few days ago who drew a gun on a robber. The robber lunged, took the gun, and killed the pastor.
No matter what the gun culture proclaims, having a loaded gun, unlocked in the house, is more likely to end up with a resident of the house being shot than an intruder.
So they've already slashed my tires and rendered my vehicles inoperative.
I am to flee.
But under this hypothetical situation, where am I, the most despised man in town to flee [on foot] to? What about my wife and daughter who are not in shape to even keep up?
We've seen now law enforcement generally doesn't intervene when looters are white, so don't expect them to assist...
I realize most on this site lean anti-gun... but what are the alternatives in this situation? This is not a simple robbery matter, this is a total breakdown of law and order and a crumbling of society.
Sounds like we die either way. Frankly being shot with my own weapon sounds better than being tortured in my own home.
I reiterate... I am not saying I'm going to be picking off Trumpies on a normal clear day. I'm not saying I'm going to blast people who simply knock on the door to deliver (or even steal) a package.
But I just don't trust the people of my community anymore.
I guess we'll just let the mob rape and pillage... sounds like fun. I can hardly wait. Maybe the worst they'll do is burn a cross in the yard and be on their way... (and yes that's already happened in a town about an hour from here last year)
