    Recent youth attacks=tinderbox

    Fox News has a story about a woman who was mobbed by a gang of girls last May in Philadelphia. The attack was completely unprovoked. There are already threads on this site regarding similar attacks in Milwaukee several weeks ago and in Great Britain last week. The Brits can't even legally use the ball bats discussed elsewhere, but incidents in the States may not be so one sided. If this thuggish behavior continues, it's only a matter of time before a pack of predators finds themselves on the receiving end of gunfire. Some of these incidents have unmistakable racial overtones. Could really get ugly.

    It's only a matter of time but yes, sooner than later one of these mobs will be met with overwhelmingly superior firepower by citizens here in America and that may help deter further mob action.

    I look forward to seeing the post where 5 would be assailaints get the A**es handed to them by a CC holder, or anyone for that matter.

    I wanted to get my CC permit when KS first allowed CC'ing. I kepy putting it off and putting it off. Then I realized, its only a matter of time... Well I have my CCP and I like to think I am ready for these type of thugs, though I'm sure I'm not as ready as I think. That being said I really wish these cowards would pick on someone with the means and will to fight back.

    Seriously. It would be hard to fathom a riot in my little hick town, and as I've stated before, it would be alarmingly brief if it did happen. Country folk don't play.

    Recreational mayhem, recreational rioting, and recreational terrorism, which this was, need to be punished as severly as the law allows. London is a preview of coming attractions if it isn't.

    It will be interesting to see the reaction when, as it must happen sooner or later if these recreational violence mobs keep attacking, one of these mobs of kids suffers a failure of the victim selection process and a few of them get hit by gunfire.

    In a mob situation it will be close up point and shoot with the trigger being pulled about as fast as it can be the clip runs dry, reloading will be difficult, the outcome is hard to predict but one or more of the recreational rioters perpetrating mayhem on a victim might be seriously or hurt of killed.

    We all know what the parents of the mobsters will say about their wonderful kids ...

    It is my firm opinion that after the first round or two is fired, the rest will be scattering like roaches.

    Did Fox News mention why they're running that story now?
    Another slow news day?

    I sure hope you are right about that. I tend to think that is what will happen also, but they may be to hyped up to understand what is happening quickly enough to get out of the way. With so many so close the odds of at least one getting hit are higher than normal.

    Yeah well, let's face reality. Most of these youths have no father, no education, no morals, no ethics, no job, no money, no motivation, no goals. The sad part is - they don't know what they're missing by lacking all these things. So, they get frustrated and bored.

    I'm certainly not defending them in any way, shape or manner. But I can totally understand it, and I think things will get MUCH worse before they get better......

    For the most part, I'd agree with that, azchevy.

    There's actually a place where I have to go for work that's in another town, where something like this very well could happen. Azchevy is probably right, but I find myself intentionally switching over to a G19 with a spare mag when I go over there vs. the standard 7 -10 round .45's that I normally carry.

    The story said the victim had not sought public attention. A recent video of the incident was just released, prompting an interview with the victim.
