We Don’t Need Castle Doctrine or High Cap Magazines

The city politicians who believe this title need to explains the bands of feral teenagers wandering their city and beating people to the point of hospitalization. Given that we know the city will prosecute you for defending yourself against people intent on just giving you a thorough beating, it’s yet another reason not to go into the city.

According to the police report of the incident, Guendelsberger was “jumped” by 30 to 40 men who punched and kicked her numerous times. Police said they checked the area for surveillance but had no luck.

Shortly before Guendelsberger’s assault, police said, they responded to another assault, about five blocks away at Broad Street and Fairmount Avenue, of a 20-year-old man who said that he was attacked by a large group of men and women.

Police said that he was treated for a bruise and abrasion under his right eye.

Twitter users said that the mob ranged from 50 to 100 people and that participants not only assaulted people but also threw trash cans and lit fireworks.

I’ll be honest with you, it’s getting to the point I don’t know if you can carry enough gun in that city. The politicians who run the city should be ashamed. Green St. and Broad isn’t exactly the ghetto.

    Do flash-bangs work outdoors?

    Fifty to one hundred people? What are they reenacting a zombie hoard? What a bunch of animals.

    I told you we should openly carry long guns … :-)

    @ The Packetman you planning in bringing a SAW ?

    @Voolfie, The flash will be significantly attenuated and the bang somewhat so. There are, however, outdoor alternatives.

    @Pyrotek85, [shrug] A couple of USPSA Grandmasters with fully loaded belts could have a hoard like that taken care of in under 10 seconds. There probably wouldn’t be a second hoard for a generation or two.

    This stuff is happening in Peoria, IL, too.

    And also quite a bit in Chicago.

    I don’t think this is a problem that will be solved with apologetics and concessions.

    I’m with Joe: Even 2-3 guys with pistol-caliber lever rifles (major, not minor) could resolve the issue in under 15 seconds. Shoot, shovel, shut up.

    Done once, I doubt the event would need to be repeated for quite some time.

    I strongly suspect something similar will be the only means of rectifying this particular issue, probably nationwide, at some point, and the sooner the offenders learn that the fewer will suffer.

    AR15 pistol + Beta Mag + Concealed Carry Permit = Problem Solved.

    Yeah, they’re just “teenagers”. Why not call them what they truly are – ghetto thugs. We should not be afraid of the racial implications of describing them accurately. There are plenty of white, asian, and hispanic ghetto thugs out there as well. They SHOULD be marginalized and ridiculed for their ghetto baboonery, which is the best term I can imagine for their behavior. All civilized people should agree on this.

    It soon will be.

    Sounds like a job for the street sweeper.

  14. @ 6 –

    Ed, you say that like it’s a bad thing …

  15. mike says:

    Seems like assault clips should be required accessories for any trip to the city.

    Sounds like a job for…. Charles Bronson!

    Mariner, I live five blocks away from where this happened and I’m here to tell you that this neighborhood is not going to be allowed to hit the skids. If a few ‘non-citizens’ have to be dispatched before that lesson is learned, then so be it.

  18. mobo says:

    Broad and Green is within walking distance of the ghetto. It might be relatively nice in the immediate area, but it is still only a hop, skip, and jump from ground zero of a zombie outbreak.
