I guess nice thing about shooting into crowds to defend yourself with your handy ccw permit in your pocket ... is that it’s difficult to miss a crowd. (Yes, with /s, but you know darned well it is GOING to happen!)

This would be one of those “flash mobs” we’ve been reading about recently I believe. A relatively new, but not form of entertainment for local street gangs?

These have to be busted just as quickly as they occur to be effective in putting them down me thinks.

Race be damned. Probably why they think they can get away with this sort of offense.

Our great “community organizer” is directly responsible for these out of control youth gangs. If you recall, he wanted to start his Hitler like “Youth Corp” early in the start of his reign. It’s starting and I fear what nothing good will come from it but another civil war with blacks against whites/hispanics. Shooting some of them will not stop them as they, more than likely also have guns and will retaliate.

As I said, “It’s starting nothing good will come from this”

I have watched this stuff develop, in Philadelphia at a Center City food court. The kids started coming in there in big groups after school. At first they would be talking very loud, then doing stuff like break dancing in the aisles. The security guards would ask them to leave.

Then I read they showed up as a flash mob and were pushing and accosting the patrons. Now the guards turn kids away at the entrances. Attacking people apparently is now just something these kids do.

When I listen to discussion by blacks of what it’s like to be a black kid in the city it breaks my heart. What more is there to say once you hear they are discouraged against reading books or learning because that is “acting white”? Until Obama goes on an absolute crusade against this I say he gives not a damn about black people.

Well, it will certainly stop them when they are dead.
Anyone wanting to carry arms into such crimes will have a very short shelf life very soon thereafter- I’m not worried about civil wars but I certainly see your point

Absolutely correct. I would be angry too if all I knew was what the race hustlers teach from the cradle.

According to the police report of the incident, Guendelsberger [a 27 yr old woman] was "jumped" by 30 to 40 men who punched and kicked her numerous times.

They're like Muslims. One young woman is nothing a group of 30 or 40 men isn't up to dealing with! What studly guys!

Right you are. Crap such as this is why I stay close to home unless I have to go somewherre on business.If/When they tried to use me for entertainment, I would not be a good sport about it. I would hurt or possibly kill one of more of them. then I would be in trouble.

I should probably have put “(rhetorical)” at the end of that sentence as one would put a “/s” to indicate sarcasm in some posts. Sorry ‘bout that.

May I make a slight correction to your post? I bet they’d let you be if you pulled out a 9mm, or larger caliber, in response to their intimidation.

Thank you.

Krystallnacht
Krystallnacht. The similarities are undeniable. Just as in 1938, the current community organizer is doing nothing to discourage it. This time around they won't need a yellow star of David sewn on your clothes to identify you.

I think we're already in one. MSM coverage about it is dismal because it doesn't fit their "Rainbows and unicorns" story line.

Moving up to a larger caliber seems about right to me as I moved up from a bersa 380 to a bersa 40sw ultra compact recently.

The only things more effective on a mob then hi cap magazines is a 12 ga pump with 4 buck unless one has access to a machine gun. Where are those street sweapers when you need one.

Wait....am I being insensitive? I mean, according to the right reverend Al Sharpton (cough, cough), all of these anti-whitey behaviors can be chalked up to being ripped from the motherland and forced into a life of slavery (generations later). For some reason, the retaliatory behavior is time released after generations of entitlement payments.

My bad.

“they are discouraged against reading books or learning because that is “acting white”? “

My 40+ years experience in education suggests it isn’t so much black kids are “discouraged” from reading is that more than half of them just can not read, period.

Their ancestors never developed a written language so it is somewhat presumptuous to believe the people of a geographical area, with relatively pure genetic lines, where written language was never developed, can hit the ground running and pick up all the requisite anatomical necessities in a few generations.

Reading is difficult in all the aboriginal societies in Africa, Australia, the USA and Canada. The same societies which never developed the wheel either. It is much like acting surprised your Beagle does not retrieve ducks well or your Chihuahua is not a pointer. It may not be politically correct but genetics counts.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The last time I had reason to be in the area ( about 10 years ago) Spring Garden was a gentrified neighborhood on the absolute edge of one of the worst black ghettos in the world. ( Yeah! I mean that seriously.)

At the intersection of Broad St. and Spring Garden is the Hahnemann Hospital medical school and university ( lots of white middle class students and workers). A Catholic high school sat on the NE corner. I read that the Mormon Church opened a new temple at this intersection. There are several large museums, the Philadelphia library, and the magnificent Philadelphia Art Museum just a short walk away down Spring Garden.

It’s looking more and more like these events are being coordinated or simply encouraged by anti-american terrorists, like soros, or the current administration.
