Walk home after a game (WITH VIDEO)
Hey guys, this is my first post to the site. This type of scenario has been on my mind for a long time, and was hoping I could get everyone to sound off on how they feel about it.
Me and my girlfriend are walking home from a game/venue/event in the city. The game let out late and we Were minding our own business walking back to the car when these thugs from this youtube video pop out and start harassing my girl.
Warning: Graphic Video

I want no trouble (and NEVER want or plan to pull out my weapon) so I keep walking at a fast pace with my girl. Then I picture all the thugs swarming me like they did the guy in the youtube video. I then access the situation, warn, brandish, and pull out my weapon. Two charge me and I drop the first two, as the others scream threats and vulgarity and take off. I immediately call the police and head to the station.
During press release/pre-trial and trial, my name and/or picture gets out and these guys search and find where me or my family lives....
What to do? You know if they are gang members they will probably be out for revenge. I couldnt imagine living my life paranoid and watching my back for the rest of my life. I have a successful and seated life in which I'm involved in my community. Do you just move?
probably paranoid, but this very thought has kept me reserved about concealed carry. I know its better to worry about this issue then to not be able to defend yourself, but its still in the back of my mind.
