    Question New BG Tactic in Our Area

    Ok folks, what would you do in this situation had you been carrying? This is an area not too far from where I live and I frequent much for shopping. The armed holdups in this area have been increasing at an a substantial rate. I tell my wife not to go to this area and won't even think about it unless I'm carrying. And then, it would have to be for a pretty urgent reason.

    Roll up the windows and keep the doors locked. Don't get out to check it. If someone approaches, ram the carriage and get out.

    If it is that bad you should write a letter to the city leaders and the chief of police. And yes, I would avoid the area as much as possible and carry if I have to go there until the city and police address the issues and fix the problem. That type of situations can be detrimental to businesses and property value in the area.

    Good point. What's interesting about this is I watch this channels news in the morning and these things are never mentioned. I have to go scour the website to find them. I don't know about anyone else, but this seems kind of newsworthy to me. I think I'll drop a line to the station.

    Sounds like a bad movie plot to me.

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    If your one step ahead, your really just waiting to be behind. About ten steps ahead is just right IMO.

    If there is a baby carriage on the move by itself there is usually a frantic parent right behind it in overdrive. Anything else is not worth stopping for.

    What I am not doing is exiting my vehicle without police on the scene.
    I have enough chromed steel on the front of my truck that I don't have any worries about my vehicle being damaged by a baby carriage. I also have enough chromed steel on the front of my truck that I know if I hit a baby carriage at any kind of speed, its occupant (if any) is going to either need medical treatment far beyond my abilities, or is beyond medical care.

    I will call 9-1-1 and wait with my head on a swivel and a hand on my weapon until officers and ambulance arrive or the situation changes to the point I need to leave to guarantee my safety.

    This tragedy could have been avoided if we had strictly enforced "reasonable" baby carriage laws on the books. I would start by closing the Baby Carriage show loop hole that allows people with criminal intent to easily purchase carriages without a background check and a reasonable "good cause".

    This is not a bad start. I think we can do better. What if they decide to use an occupied baby carriage next time? There needs to be a law providing for the safety of the occupant. Not only front air bags but side and rear and top and bottom... This is a tradgedy averted folks, this could have ended poorly for the occupant.
    My guess as to why the carriage was empty...well I saw this in a movie once and my guess is one of two things- Either they couldn't find a little person to occupy it or they were unwilling to get in with a tommy gun. Oh, is there a "no tommy gun held by a little person in a baby carriage" law...THAT may be why!

    That's an old tactic used by assassins and terrorist.
    You do not think the 9mm is effective? Then let me shoot at you.

    Now that is a typical liberal democrat response (not accusing you of being one).
