There is going to be bloodshed.

Homeowners are not going to stand by and do nothing if they go into the neighborhoods.

I am upstate, my cousin said BLM is starting at Trader Joe’s in Merrick at 6pm and heading to Massapequa “what’s theirs is ours”.

Maybe we should go to where they live and re-loot what they looted!

Got that forwarded to me a couple hours ago. I haven’t heard anything since, but we probably won’t know until later evening if/when the rioting/looting starts.

Close to Massapequa and am being “extra” cautious in immediate preparedness.

You know they better be careful with that "Whats theirs is ours" crap. They could mean our bullets are theirs very soon.

Scary thought that most of these folks that have never fired or even held a weapon, think they will be proficient enough to use that weapon in a home defense situation. 

Not likely.

To all the keyboard commandos who went out and bought their first firearm:    If you end up with a thug breaking into your home, and you can not shoot to kill you made a mistake with that purchase in the first place.   That thug is going to take that firearm away from you and ram it up where the sun doesn't shine and that is if the thug has a kind heart.   When the china virus panic started I had gotten two emails from friends with non-gunowner husbands regarding a firearms purchase.   I told them the same thing; that if they can not shoot to kill they had no right endangering the rest of their family by having a gun in the house.   Show me a libtard who made his first gun purchase this year that is going to vote pro 2A, let alone join the NRA.   Please, show me.

It is 12am Jun 3rd. Haven't heard anything here. I am a few blocks north of Southern State in Massapequa.

 

Edit. OK. They didn't even make 3 blocks.

They sent scouts out to cruise around San Remo in Kings Park the cops were in front of a certain house that they targeted. Many locals lined the streets all men from the ages of 19 to 60 not brandishing but all holding in their vehicles nothing happened and the cops left way before the locals. It's time we show these people Force if they show up at Stop & Shop in Smithtown Sunday night I know of over forty five guys that are going to be there Sunday night . And I believe 100% of them are hoping it gets out of control come join us. Not in my hometown they have poked the bear a little too hard this time

I wonder if they were returning their Corona virus guns or buying their riot panic guns !

Are there any accurate stats showing these folks are all 1st time guy buyers?  I couldn't imagine thinking I need to go out and buy my first gun and waiting on that long line  never having owned or handled a firearm before.  But then again, I've been shooting since I was 12 so my perspective is probably skewed.  I even made sure my daughter is competent with a handgun as well as rifle.

 

What are these folks buying?  Maybe I'm wrong, but my rifles aren't the first thing I'm grabbing if I need to fend off looters.  I just don't see how you can safely and effectively use a rifle in close quarters.
