    I for one hope they do not make flash mobs illegal. I love seeing the "improv everywhere" type stuff. I would hate to see a group of people singing a hearty song in a park get dispersed by flash bang grenades because it's a "flash mob."

    Don't lump every flash mob into the category of destructive, malicious, terrorist activity, whatever else. Some people really do use them to cheer up other people's daily humdrum lives.

    But more on topic, what happened in the OP is terrible and I wish that no one get caught up in something like that. I would call something like that a riot.

    A group of thug wannabes will do something like this at some point with violence directed towards individuals and a bunch of them will end up getting shot by citizens defending themselves. That will put this sort of thing into perspective for police, establishment managers, general public, and hopefully the perpetrators of such stuff. Until consequences are encountered, I don't expect it to do anything but get worse. All this does is give ideas to the really violent element on a new and apparently successful approach.

    Or, do we need to spend time, effort and money on education. Spray for bugs on our apple trees and gather our eggs more than once a day. The education of our Countrys people is dearly needed. We can not compete with the rest of the world without it. The lack of it will destroy us. An abundance of it will make us great again. This I promise you.

    That Sir, was very well put. May I suggest the following in addition?

    Thoes who can not afford a belt and hygine products but have upgraded thier iPhone each time a new one arises, be fined steeply for disturbing the peace.

    While we are at we should address people on welfare and foodstamps who keep having kids but somehow can afford the latests trends. You cant learn respect from parents who dont care. FYI Im not talking about parents that legitimatley can not support thier family.

    I have been pretty disrespectful to some in my time and there is no fine line between right and wrong in that matter. I grew up quickly though because I had great teachers. If we choose not to discipline and educate however, how will our youth know when and how to grow up?

    I agree, and I carry a 14-shot .40. I'd grab my wife and run, gun loaded and racked just in case.

    They were last seen ducking out the back of the store with a cartful of pork rinds and orange soda.

    That was the point of posing the question. Against a crowd of this size, your choice of handgun isn't going to change the outcome.
    With the glock and a couple of spare mags you could put hits on better than 10 percent of the mob. With the snub Your at around 2-3 percent. I agree with you, that the best course of action is to leave, but sometimes it doesnt work that way. You might have to fight thru the crowd. Ill take the 10% any day of the week.

    There is one word that would put a stop to 90% of this behavior. Parenting. But that seems to be an almost lost art.

    Would I use a gun, maybe not. But I would use this on a flash mob of that size;

    Fox Labs OC Lock-On Grenade

    10 secs of pure hell for those folks. Should buy anyone enough time to run out the back door for escape.
