    Hate to say it - the Korean shopkeepers during the LA riots knew how to defend better - from rooftops with rifles.

    *sigh*

    Withdraw consent!

    It took them a day or two to get organized and prepared. They also didn't have a community filled with snitches who would run to law enforcement saying, "We saw Chang shoot a looter! Where's our reward?"

    We're on what now ... day 5 of this? I expect if the government continues to sit on its hands, there will be organized resistance against the mobs and it will get very bloody.

    I have enough ammo here to defend against a small group. I lack the ammo or fortifications to defend against a larger, organized and armed group. It would be necessary to retreat. But where to? If it gets to me, then it's already everywhere else.

    Brother I pray for you.

    Remember, it costs no more to kill a General than it does a Private, when you have limited supplies, make the most of it and take out any identifiable leaders first. Disorganized mobs tend to lack the discipline to fight effectively without leaders.

    Best chance you have if it comes to it.

    Thanks for the prayers.

    Yeah, this place isn't defensible in the long run. I'm not surrounded by enough like-minded folk and the racial mix here is hot ALL the time, not just now. Hawaii will calve off the dying corpse of the United States like Alaska and Puerto Rico. Likely what rises here would not be pro-freedom. It'd either be something akin to the old Hawaiian kingdom or a People's Republic of California.

    In this type of situation the only thing that will make the mob move on or redefine their objective is overwhelming force or defense.................Earl is absolutely right in his statement...............as individuals never take a knife to a gun fight
