Would you shoot rioters if they were neighbors?

This is purely a hypothetical question but would you shoot rioters near your home if they were burning the homes and cars and beating the residents down? Here is another addition..what if the rioters were kids from your own neighborhood? Would you shoot them down without compunction to save yourself and other and your property?

In my opinion I think it would be justified if anarchy breaks out.

In that situation, that ^^^ would be the only basis of my decision making process.

Everything else is just details.

To save lives certainly yes, to protect property not so sure. Depends on what exactly was going on and how old these kids were.

Let's say around 17 and they are burning homes and cars. Beating people with tire irons too. Like a typical riot.

I don't have a number AK style rifles with loaded 100 and 75 round drums for nothing.....

Like I told my boss when he found out I carried my shorty AR and 10, 30 round mags to a housing project the day after the Rodney King riots to do some phone work, he asked "You wouldn't have really hurt anyone would you?"

I said "(John); if the SOBs had come after me, the cops would have been stacking bodies like cord wood"!

Age be damned, if they are old enough to burn, loot and beat people, they're old enough to die!

Now that is how I think.

YES, I will do what it takes to save my family. If they looted the corner store that is not my problem, if they try to harm my family that is.

What are my options again? a) Shoot them, or b) let them burn my home and beat me with tire irons? Is that a trick question?

It was a typical riot situation like 1992 and the Dc riots in Adams Morgan some years back, Be prepared and have your riot/zombie guns always ready.

You have the proper mindset to do what is necessary. Modern America seems to be coming apart so the mindset has to be adjusted accordingly.

Beating people with tire irons? Buckshot, apply as necessary.

The neighborly thing to do would be to mortally wound the neighborhood kids, not kill them.

I guess that would be "neighborly".

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.


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


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.

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
