The difficulty with blending anymore is you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting some surveillance camera or another.

Well that's the truth and the kids/punks know it, too. So be like them: Don't look up! Especially if it's cold out, most folks will be in jackets, sweaters etc. But even in summertime, there's ways to dress so as not to ummm stand out.

So where do people like these get the idea that’s it’s okay to beat the Hell out of other people who haven’t attacked or threatened them?

Where did they get the idea? Why they got a ‘bro in the White House. He take care of them.
It’s only going to get worse.

The problem is, you can be arrested and lose your CCW for “brandishing” a gun. The laws are pretty dumb in that you really have to shoot somebody if you show your carry weapon in order to avoid a “brandishing” charge.

Not quite (and it depends on jurisdiction) -- the usual criteria is that you can only display your gun in a threatening manner if you are actually at risk of potentially deadly assault. Generally, being menaced by a hostile mob which has demonstrated willingness to use violence, the criteria are met.

I am not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV -- check your local laws.

Those folks that you thought were nice people will steal you blind and worse if you cant defend yourself.

I watched a documentary yesterday called Into The Arms of Strangers, about the Kindertransport at the beginning of WWII. (The lives of 10,000 Jewish children were saved by an ingenious program of "foster parenting" by families in England.)

One woman described how her little German friends shunned her after Hitler rose to power. Another man told of being beaten and thrown through a plate glass window by a group of boys as he was heading to school. It was an idyllic life for some of them until the Austrian non-Jewish children were brainwashed into giving the Nazi salute. They were encouraged to see their former friends as lesser beings and to mistreat them.

Now we have things going on like groupthink regarding reparations, an attorney general who won't prosecute crimes against white people, a soon-to-be-former Speaker of The House making accusations of racism by those who opposed Obamacare, and more.

Brandishing in a crowd of unruly strangers is irresponsible. The Marine's obligation is to his family. He should have made a hasty exit and called the cops.

Did you even read the article?

Excellent movie! I doubt the audience was anything like the one in the theater who came to see Little Fockers.

The problem is,
you can be arrested and lose your CCW for “brandishing” a gun.

Two key points from Florida's Stand Your Ground Law:

IMHO "brandishing" (the reporter's word, not necessarily the proper description) under the circumstances described is a proper use of force under Florida law.

What people don’t understand is, that if the bottom drops out... Those folks that you thought were nice people will steal you blind and worse if you cant defend yourself.

More like, those folks you thought were nice people will support "people who look like them" over you if there's any conflict between them and you. Most middle-class folk do not have a gut-level understanding of tribal attitudes.

Where to start?

On concealed carry - sometimes it is not self-protection but the ability to protect your wife or children that requires a gun on your person.

The punk who sucker-punched the wife - now there is a courageous young man. I’m sure the Marine would like to return the favor.

I won’t even get into the racial aspect since, whenever the media does not report the perps race it is almost a certainty they are Amish or rogue Swedes.

This is one of the reasons that I carry a G20 with two extra mags when me and the Missus are ‘out on the town’. One mag of 180gr penetrators, the other two are full of carefully hoarded Black Talon. Sure, it’s a big pistol, but there are always ways to manage it.

A number of years ago, a guy’s small child kept putting his sticky hands on my head and hair while I was trying to watch a movie. I tolerated it for awhile (the child was about 3 and was up and down, walking around in the seats behind us). Finally I turned around and asked the parents to please get their child under control. The father got angry and made a comment to the effect that I clearly didn’t know what it was like to raise children. Now... I raised 3 boys and in fact was also a school teacher, so I’m quite familiar with the intricacies of children, both small and large, and I told him so, and in addition told him that it was rude to bring a small child to a movie that was not in fact a children’s movie (this one was rated at least pg13 and was NOT a child’s movie and was an evening showing—clearly they brought the child because they were too cheap to get a baby sitter).
Of course Dad got angry and tried to start a fight with my husband. Ultimately I got the theater manager who asked the family to leave (not because the child was not under control but because the Dad was not under control). Another of my pet peeves, people who bring small children to night time showings of non kid movies instead of getting a sitter. If they must they need to be willing to take them out the moment they start making a fuss or disturbing other people. Sorry that they will lose the price of their ticket but that’s the cost of having kids.

Corporal punishment. It works. Public pain and public shame. Canings. In public. Certain number of stripes per type of offense, more stripes for subsequent offenses. Cheap, no jail time, saves tons and tons of taxpayer money. And would provide entertaining lessons for wannabees.

And a huge bringback of capital punishment - for child molesting, forcible rape, murder. Public hangings. Cheap, effective, environmentally sound (rope is re-usable).

And no years and years of appeals. One appeal if guilt is in doubt; forget appeals because of legalisms when it’s know the perp did it.

Guarantee things will change.

If anyone wants to squeak about “times have changed” or “we’re not barbarians” etc - criminals are barbarians, and treating them like reasonable people who are just suffering from bad childhoods and all they need is a little time out and they’ll become responsible members of society is - PART OF THE PROBLEM!

Those of you who have “been around” for a while may remember the Spring 1964 incident in NY city when Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death in FRont of witnesses who would not “get involved.” She died of massive stab wounds.

I made up my mind then that I would not be a victim, nor would I allow anyone else to be a victim, of such a heinous crime, and armed myself.

So far, it has worked!
