Three people were shot in Kenosha, Wisconsin Tuesday night, two fatally in what most mainstream media are still calling “mostly peaceful protests” (these criminal apologists would call the Battle of Stalingrad a “mostly peaceful border dispute”).

At the start, the man with the rifle is down on the ground. Multiple people run at him and attack. At least one tries to brutally kick him, and he opens fire. Based on that clip, at least, it appears to be self defense.
For some-odd reason, that doesn’t happen around here where I live. One guy tried a few years ago, in the post-Ferguson wave of Burn Loot & Murder “protests,” But after a quiet meeting with the police chief, he chose wisely, opting for a silent march on a carefully selected route.
The real reason it doesn’t happen here in the Peach State — yet…the insurgents are getting bolder — isn’t really so strange. If they try, the police probably couldn’t figure how many ballistic trajectories there were, much less where the rounds came from.
§ 16-3-21 – Use of force in defense of self or others; evidence of belief that force was necessary in murder or manslaughter prosecution
(a) A person is justified in threatening or using force against another when and to the extent that he or she reasonably believes that such threat or force is necessary to defend himself or herself or a third person against such other’s imminent use of unlawful force; however, except as provided in Code Section 16-3-23, a person is justified in using force which is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm only if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent death or great bodily injury to himself or herself or a third person or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.
Here in Georgia we can shoot them. Let’s be clear on that “forcible felony” part.
(e) As used in this Code section, the term “forcible felony” means any felony which involves the use or threat of physical force or violence against any person and further includes, without limitation, murder; murder in the second degree; burglary in any degree; robbery; armed robbery; home invasion in any degree; kidnapping; hijacking of an aircraft or hijacking a motor vehicle in the first degree; aggravated stalking; rape; aggravated child molestation; aggravated sexual battery; the manufacturing, transporting, distribution, or possession of explosives with intent to kill, injure, or intimidate individuals or destroy a public building; terroristic threats; or acts of treason or insurrection.
Assaults, arson, bombings, insurrection… What else do you call chants of “death to America” and “kill the police” as they assault people, burn buildings, throw incendiary bombs, and engage in deliberate uncivil disorder intended to overthrow the “system”?
Who might those insurrectionists be facing here? Around 700,000 people with Weapons Carry Licenses. One in eleven adults over 21. The rest just don’t bother with licenses. Roughly three quarters of a million military veterans with weapons training. Oh, and there’s a Navy base here, too. If the rioters were surprised by the reaction of an Army sergeant in Austin, imagine what Marines might do.
Guns in homes are noticeable here only in their conspicuous absence. There are two gun stores within walking distance of my home, one a Class 3 NFA dealer. There are three more within a ten minute drive (again, one of those is also Class 3). There’s a reason this town can support that many gun stores.
Should the police or coroner not want to do the post-riot cleanup, we have swamps, gators, and loads of wild pigs. Heck, I’ve seen our squirrels fight over a ham bone they stole from a dog.
City Democrats may have laughed at the stupid redneck when they saw this meme:
We aren’t entirely joking.
