    Teen Mobs

    This happened in the town I grew up in (and my parents still reside):

    Teen mobs harass motorists - Peoria, IL - pjstar.com

    Aside from the obvious issue of no concealed carry in Illinois, how would you handle this?
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Law requires a driver to yield to pedestrians, go a different way.

    Once the brandishing occurred (how is that even possible in Illinois?), my vehicle is my self defense weapon. Back up, reverse bootlegger turn around, gone.

    Outside of Illinois... really not much different... the brandishing might make a difference, but I'm in a vehicle... a 3000# bullet... slow but effective.

    Put the car in drive and step on the gas. They'll move, one way or the other.

    Once that window broke I would put the hammer down because of fearing for my life and the safety of my passenger.

    Not a pretty situation and one not easily handled.

    Someday someone getting harassed by a mob will start shooting and maybe that will make them think twice. I'm not advocating shooting them but it will happen sooner or later.

    From the article "When police responded, the group scattered in different directions." When I was a poor college kid, I had an appartment that was infested with cockroaches. If you turned the light on at night, they did the same thing - interesting.

    Pounding on the car, probably slowly back out unless they are also behind the car, then slowly go forward.

    Break the glass or see a gun, dump gas into the V8 and get the heck out of dodge.

    I recall some guy adding a propane bottle and nozzles around the bottom of his car. One flick of a switch and all close pedestrians on any side would get a serious hot foot.

    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Well.. I guess I'm glad I don't live in Illinois. Because this type of incident would have caused me to, at minimum, brandish my firearm... if they didn't scatter like the roaches they are at that point, I would have started shooting. And I don't say this from a perspective of "Oh look at me, I'm a big shot with my gun" rather from a perspective that I have no idea what these guys plan to do next and my life is in danger. There is definitely a disparity of force and they are already assaulting my vehicle and making verbal threats.

    I'm going to Chicago this weekend with the girlfriend. Never been to Illinois before, and can't carry there, so it already is something I'm not exactly looking forward to.

    Really sad. A friend of mine just moved back to Peoria and got married. That is where he grew up and he returned after he retired. There is no way I would move to the "peoples republic of Illinois" until they pass a concealed carry law like the rest of the civilized states in the US! And I don't see that happening anytime soon as long as the crooked politicians in Chicago continue to run the state, and they been doing that since before Big Al Capone, so I'm not going to hold my breath waiting.

    :@rs102486: Agree completely. I've found rolling through that area with a 4X4 up on 35's blaring Marilyn Manson is found to be quite intimidating by the natives.:

    I can picture it in my head, the locals whispering to each other "psst, watch out for the crazy white guy"

    It wouldn't bother me one bit to roll over a group of people doing that type of stuff.

    If you're too stupid to get out of the way of a vehicle or purposely hindering traffic you are really too stupid to be walking around. A Cooper STT print across your person would probably be an improvement.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Surround my vehicle, verbally assault me with racial slurs and threats. I will fear for my safety. Sounds like a good time to turn the thugs into speed bumps.
