    I agree with glockman10mm in post #18 this thread:

    I thank OP and members for the awareness heightening thread.

    EDIT: this situation is kind of a "damned if you do and damned if you don't" predicament. . . I'll take the appropriate action to defend myself and face the consequences____ I'm not going to just let it happen to me or mine.

    Escape and evade if possible. If I absolutely can't get myself and my family out of danger, then I fight my way out with whatever is available (gun, knife, club, 2x4, fist, foot, chain saw, whatever).

    I will say that if my little boy is with me and they try to harm him, it will not end well for them.

    I was considering a Glock for my next firearm purchase but reading stuff like this makes me think I should get a good "truck gun" (shotgun) instead.

    If God forbid, my Situational Awareness failed me to the point I led my family into something like this or if we were attacked by random mobs/gangs of roving Clint said in Outlaw Josey have to get Mad Dog Mean! I would absolutley try to destroy them all before they laid a hand on my family!
    Not tough guy talk, just realistic about the lengths I'm willing to go to to protect my wife and kids.

    Problem is, the jurisdictions where these types of crimes are happening are also the jurisdictions where the DA would be happier to prosecute you for defending yourself, then to prosecute the young thugs.

    Some have been. Police in some areas are monitoring social network sites and moving to the grouping area to forestall the events.

    This will not happen to me without a fight. I was just thinking about this last week. I'm rarely out after 2130 but I guess it could happen anytime.
