i normally dont go to the gun first in many situations but i believe anyone against these kind of odds who is armed would be a fool not to...regardless of your self defense skills you are putting yourself in a less than hopeful situation against multipleattackers...you are potentially exposing yourself to a beating and loss of your firearm once it is discovered...that i itself is a responsibility that must be considered...hmmmm...do i take a shot at fighting these guys and possibly losing my gun...my life and the life of my family due to a miscalculation on my part?...or do i respond with known deadly force and hope it backs enough of them off without too much bloodshed and my family is safe?...
sorry...i think this one is a no brainer...
BETTER TO BE TRIED BY 12 THAN CARRIED BY 6
Hesitation kills faster than a bullet.
If your head is up your *$$ you are unaware of danger. You are in the perfect position to kiss it goodbye.

No warning draw and either empty the clip or wheel.
Thats my plan every time .
They will all be sporting a third eye if I have anything to do with it
There won't be much of a discourse before hand.
"If you are unwilling to defend even your own lives, then you are like mice trying to 'negotiate' with owls. You regard their ways as 'wrong.' They regard you as dinner."-- John Farnam

Armed or unarmed, your moral duty trumps all.

Kill em, you may pull some time but you will still be a man and can look them in the eye. You leave them to that and you may as well just keep walking.
Louisiana allows the use of deadly force to stop a forcible felony, I don't necessarily have to prove that I was in fear of death or grave bodily harm. Either way, legality goes out the window in that situation. Do what you have to do to protect your family. If you go to jail for it, at least they are unharmed.
Reguardless of any law, no matter what state, no matter how much time I could get, im drawing, and loud mouth is taking a lethal dose of lead. Im in fear of there lives the moment the loud mouth finishes his sentence. If the others decided they want to be "hard thugs", or there armed and draw, im clearing a lane for my loved ones to escape through, and THEN im trying to stay alive. Im a very nice guy, and will do anything for anybody. The moment my family is in harms way, im a totally different animal.

"They tell you that they are going to satisfy themselves with your wife and daughter and if I sit back and don't try and be a hero we can all walk away alive."
Oh....so they are violent gang rapists but, NOT liars?
They rape women and innocent children but, they always tell the truth.
What would make you think that they would allow any of you to walk away alive?
As far as I'm concerned in that scenario there is only one way to guarantee that your family walks away alive.
And that would be if you win and they lose.
Shoot the ugliest one first.

I would be within the law to use my pistol in NC. Also, given the number of assailants, I would be pleased that I decided to get a Glock 26 instead of a snubbie.

Would anyone seriously sit there and do nothing?
I'd say a good 99.9999% of any of us would at least go down swinging.
Me, I give no warnings, no threats, just gunfire. A lot of gunfire.
I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
