Watch the movie Death Sentence.
This is a discussion on Met and threatened while walking out of house within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Watch the movie Death Sentence....
Why? It is, in your experience, an accurate representation of gang-related activity? Or is it - what can happen with "wrong place @ wrong time" in the worst scenerio? I watched it. The lead goodguys happened upon a criminal trainwreck & got tangled in the mess. The related occurance above is, as I understand, an uninvolved Campus Security Officer (CSO) being informed by a neighborhood gang that they; had done extensive recon specifically on him, knew he & his family's vital personal details, and threatened to illicitly use that knowledge against him IF this uninvolved CSO didn't "leave the gangs alone". It's not, as far as I can read, like the CSO had ever previously crossed their path. That's the confusing part for me.Watch the movie Death Sentence.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those that describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
As far as I know he is into nothing that would warrant the attention, however I am not going to make the claim that I know everything about the situation as I was not present. Yes the police have the ability to handle this if things continue to escalate. I would agree that normally a campus security officer would not be involved in things of this magnitude, however our security gets along very well with the local PD and have been called to back them up on a few occasions. For the last few years gang violence has increased around the school, to the point that our security cars all have car mounted 12 Ga. Thanks for the ideas, and comment. I agree with mitchellct about that thing that I have to do if the above scenarios play out.
Now, how exactly would they know he doesn't have a concealed carry permit, and doesn't own a gun?
In recent years various states have moved to keep the names of license holders secret? No one would know whether or not there was a shotgun in the house under any circumstances, unless the "friend" had given that information out, perhaps unknowingly or as part of some job application with the college.
Yup, the security guard needs to help him mom out right now.
I don't think you understand.
If the guy being harassed by gang members suddenly calls you asking for you to "help him out with something...and, you know...bring your gun..." or "invites you over to stay a while...and bring a rifle or shotgun..." then you should have something important to do instead.
I'll go way out of my way to help others, but not when I think I'm getting a line. That would be the end of the road of friendship.
School grounds, no guns. Also, licensed security cannot carry CHL.
He has touched a nerve somewhere.
Yoda, I am, yes.
as for you...keep your distance from this guy

I did not bother reading the rest of the posts after #20.
Does this guy also go by the name of Gecko45?
Hit my limit for speculation, the sky is falling, and gun owners fighting amongst themselves.
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!
which guy? Technically since the housing is not on the school grounds it is not illegal to posses firearms. I do not think that most people around here realize this.
So 5 bangers put together FBI-NSA level surveillance on this measly campus security guard? Like everyone else said, either this guard is much more involved then known to us, or part to all of the story is just that, a story.
