I have a friend who has a hunting cabin in an area where "Y'all ain't from around here, are 'ya?" is the spoken language. I'll throw everything in the back of the 4X4 and head that way. Nice place. Folks still take care of one another up there.

After years of collecting guns, and tens of thousands of dollars worth of "accessories," if I'm not prepared by now, I'll never be.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I'm not worried so much about those who might decide to riot because of some perceived wrong of the judicial system. I do not believe that their are that many people who would riot over that. What I am worried about are the people who are looking for an excuse to riot. Perfect example would be those who riot after their favorite sports team wins a title. Or decide to take to the streets when the power goes off city wide.
Its these folks that just wait for an excuse or opportunity that worry me. They are rioting for fun.

If a riot broke out in our neighborhood I know she'd bring her cronies to my place. Good news is that my entire family now has a weapon each and knows how to shoot them!

Unfortunately, from some of the remarks I've seen in response, I really don't understand why you have a firearm. I don't know, what I own is mine and some ******* is not going to burn it...at least the first dozen or so aren't. The same people that will bow down to the regime when they come for the firearms. Let's not upset anyone, they might get angry. You know, some people are a lot like the Korean shopkeepers, they are not going to watch their stuff be destroyed by a bunch of malcontents. It may never happen where I am, probably won't. But if it does, I'm not going to tuck my tail and run. I'm not looking for trouble but I'm not running either.

If there are riots in northern NH then this country is in BIG trouble.
I had a friend in the guard back in the day. They were called up to Chicago during the riots and were not given ammo. There were people shooting at them the first day. He and a few friends drove over 150 miles that night to get home where they armed themselves with personal pistols and ammo and went back. He said that by the 3rd day no one was shooting at him anymore.
