Yeah I hear that. I had to be careful going to high school in Newark, NJ just a few years after the riots of ‘67. I know what a ‘’look’’ is. I carried a knife. Did that when I worked in New York City and The Bronx in the late ‘70’s and all through the ‘80s’. Bernie Goetz was a hero. I remember seeing grafetti on subway wall. “Bernie Goetz; Archie Bunker with a gun’’.

I hear you. See my post to “No Grey Areas’’. Thank God it didn’t work out different for you that day.

I'm very happy about it too. Two things helped me avoid a worse outcome.

One, the parking lot slowed them down when they came to a small building built right adjacent to the street. lol Two, I popped open my glove compartment and pulled a .357 out and put it on the seat between my passenger and myself. Being a couple of feet above street level I think they could see down into my cab pretty easily. One or both of those things ended their pursuit.

It doesn't take much at all to become the target of thugs.

See, where you live you can own a pistol. Here in The Peoples Republic of New Jersey you can’t. Not without a whole lot of hassle if you want to do it legally. Illegally of course it’s another story. Nowadays for the thugs it’s an instrument to facilitate ‘’social justice’’ and ‘’income redistribution’’.

I don’t think I’d have the nerve to live there under those conditions. I’d have to become an outlaw. Restricting the law abiding from owning guns increases the number of thugs possessing guns and their boldness. The situation worsens exponentially.

You could actually do this before the law changed to favor more the self defense aspect of this issue...

It is called a “disparity of force”...

You do not need to see a weapon, all you need is a concern for your welfare and others in your vacinity, due to the threat imposed upon you by multiple suspects mearly displaying or communicating threatening mannerisms or words...

These suspects are extremely lucky to be alive...The Law Enforcement in that area should be exremely ashamed of themselves for doing what they did...
