Tonight and the next couple of days have the potential to become very contentious. There are a handful of people in this country that want to see racial rioting gain a stronghold in this country. These people are not generally the ones doing the rioting either, but rather the ones behind the scenes that stand to profit from the unrest they are provoking at the expense of those of lesser means.

First - I would ask everyone here to make sure they and their loved ones are safe. Stay away from potential hot spots. The people that are organizing this will be doing so in every major city in America, trying hard to fan the flames of hatred.

Second - Please use your head when posting about these things on this forum. It's very easy to get emotionally involved in these things and to post things we might not say otherwise. If you do that here you wont be here for long as we will enforce the guidelines very strictly in regards to Ferguson and racial unrest. The members here are your brothers and sisters who share a common interest with you. Please respect them as you post.

Finally - If you are carrying during this time, and why wouldn't you be, please make sure to review the rules for carry and use of deadly force in your state, and communities before you go out tonight or during the next few days. Situational awareness is the name of the game here. Avoid trouble at all costs. I really don't want to lose any more friends.

Carry On

Roger that. A great post.. and maybe.. we can all remember that it is the holiday season as well.. and that we should be closer to one another, rather than against one another.

I would love it if this was much ado about nothing. Either way, keep cool and THINK first, but protect your own. God bless.

Skiff, good rules, but you forgot to say that even a "good shoot" can destroy your life.

No matter which way it goes, I'm glad I don't live there. I'll leave it at that.

He's FREE!

Nah, he will never be free. Even though he was cleared by the judicial process, the court of public opinion has found him guilty before any evidence or credible testimony was ever heard.

The only way he will be free is if he moves out of state.
