    Wtf?

    What I would do in this situation, set aside, I have to ask; what the hell were they thinking when they saw a group of 50 (insert classification here) youth walking down the street? Does anyone here think that a group of youth that large 'snuck up on them'?

    You see a group that large headed your way, get you ass inside.

    Situational awareness is the single most important tool you have to save your own ass. Unfortuately these vicitims either didn't have it or ignored it.

    Just because you're in front of your friends house doesn't mean it's time to drop your awareness.

    "It came after a family night of celebrating America and freedom with a fireworks show at Firestone Stadium. Marshall, his family and two friends were gathered outside a friend's home in South Akron.

    Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ''This is our world'' and ''This is a black world'' as they confronted Marshall and his family."

    Again, I ask: how does a group of 'dozens of teenage boys' come out of nowhere?

    Like others posted here, I think there is more to this story. But IMHO it was definately racial.

    One or two black teens roughing me up, with my family there, with several dozen other black teens backing them up, the only prayer they may have of seeing the sun come up again is that I'm not able to get to my car, the pistols I carry would only get a few, thats if each shot counted, and they were not armed, I realize I may spend the rest of my life in jail, but the coruner would be very busy for a few days, and to show that I am not racist, it would no never mind if they were black, white, or whatever

    Most groups good or bad only have only a small nucleus of leaders, if I were in this situation would protect myself and family, drop the leaders and hope the rest would flee, if not continue firing on the nearest threat till out of ammo. No duty to retreat in Texas, if at my home additional defense would be broght to bear, they may win in the end, but will take serious losses. Hang the press, police and Al Sharpton.

    Good example of what 32 rd mags are good for.
    .
    "Pulling out the pistol and threatening to shoot the first ones coming closer may be your only way to avoid the situation."
    Disagree here. If it's time to draw, it's way past time for threats. ("If you have to shoot, shoot don't talk."_Tuco) They aren't North Korean Marines or a Chicom human wave attack. When you start shooting and their buddies start falling down they are likely to rethink the situation. Then Jesse Jackson and Al Charleton can crawl out from under their wet rocks to traduce you with calumnies as a vicious racist who opened fire on these innocent yoots who were just requesting funds for UNICEF or the United Negro College Fund. (Not lumping all Black Folks into the category of criminals here. The article said the assailants were African Americans. When set upon by a swarm of predators their ethnicity is irrelevant.)
    Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat. There ARE things to be feared more than death. The fyrd is a Constitutional imperative.

    Uhmn, yeah, I would like to see the judge who'd say being attacked by a mob of 50 does not justify shooting. I would certainly be scared out of my pants enough to do it. And while it is correct that you probably don't have enough ammo to shoot all of them this was not a Zombie attack. They won't just keep coming. Those dumb kids only felt strong in numbers and would have pissed their pants once shots were fired. It's actually pretty sad that there had to be 50 of them to get enough courage together in the first place.

    Thank you MadnMo: One of the main reasons I ever purchased a firearm is the fact that "I WILL NOT BE A SHEEP". That goes for the federal government that is out of control lurching toward fascism ala Germany 1930 and it goes for everyday crap like this thread's initial comments.

    That is the moment I would draw and fire. No warning, no order to "Stop" or "Get back". One guy swinging with 49 of his friends watching, that is instant fear for my life or my friends life. He gets the first bullet, and the next one to come closer gets the next bullet.

    The possibility of losing my gun or retaliation isn't a factor at that moment. If I have to choose between not pulling/shooting and getting the life beaten out of me, or pulling/shooting and possibly getting shot with my own gun, I'll take the odds of pulling and shooting. As for retaliation, I just might end up having to leave town, or even the state. Again, I'll accept that if it means saving my or my friends life.
    You are sooo right. I would have drawn and started to shoot at the same point.

    Unfortunately since, from a practical point of view, hate crimes only occur between black "victims" of white "perpetrators" and not with white victims of black perpetrators, no "hate crime enhancement" will be charged, if any prosecution occurs.
    War to the Knife, Knife to the hilt.
    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.

    A situation like that makes me want to learn a martial art in the worst way. If Im ever attacked by a mob, Im going to want to know how to fight multiple attackers at once and also hope I have a knife on me. You can only shoot so many times before you run out of bullets.
