The rioting in Charlotte appears to be over. During the two nights of chaos, “protesters” assaulted innocent bystanders/residents. In the video above, a North Carolinian motorist brandishes a handgun out of his window to forestall attack. Not the smoothest move; his car is plenty capable of the [potentially lethal] force necessary to his escape. And brandishing in this situation was bound to inflame passions. Which it did. Meanwhile . . .
“The explosion of racial violence in Charlotte, N.C. has led to a gun buying spree by locals worried about their safety,” washingtonexaminer.com reports. So a little advice for those concerned citizens would probably be appreciated. If you found yourself in the middle of a rioting mob hell-bent on destruction, what gun would you want to be carrying? If you were defending property from a looting mob, what firearm(s) would you choose to deploy?
