Miguel has a video of a guy who held off a flash mob with a World War II era Mosin-Nagant rifle. The news briefly shows a picture of the guy’s house, which pretty clearly advertises that this is the kind of guy who is going to shoot you if you mess with him. I guess flash mobs aren’t all that collectively smart. Personally, if I was going to hold off a violent mob with a Mosin-Nagant rifle, I’d at least fix bayonets. Close combat is never desirable, but the bayonet is long enough on that rifle I’m not sure it’d be all that close. I’m not sure you’d even need to leave your porch to clear the lawn.
UPDATE: Just noticed he seems to be wearing what looks like a welding apron, while wearing some sort of kilt. I would definitely not have messed with this guy.
