If this happens all across the US, I imagine a lot of self-defense shootings will be taking place, because they just legit legalized the purge. I do not think the insurance company can handle this. Something needs to happen, this is some scary ****
Anarchy is the absence of government. Speaking for myself, I will be completely unconcerned about legal defense, and would be concentrating solely on self defense.
Others may have a different opinion though.
I forgot the quotation marks, but the list of “non-violent” includes car jacking, vandalism, burglary, theft, car theft. It’s quite insane! If it was just simply the stoners, prostitutes, traffic tickets and the like, that would be one thing. They do not share the same definition of “non-violent” as I do.
I can easily make a case that all of those events can be committed non violently. The underlying issue here is not to panic or over react that would cause you to believe it is a reason to pull your weapon unless your life or the life of your loved one is in jeapordy of losing your life.
Didn’t say car jacking. Said theft of auto. I can steal your car without being violent. I can steal from a person without being violent and all the other issues above. Just be calm and don’t do something you will regret for the rest of your life.
Fair point and I agree…so again to my original post…I didn’t see anything originally listed that would compel me to need to defend myself.
However, I would need to defend myself in a carjacking, I would need to defend myself in a theft from persons if they’re attempting to take it real time vs when I’m not around, so IF those categories are being included, I would argue that that’s “crazy.”
It says “theft from auto”. I assume they mean breaking into a car,taking but what it implies in this high tension climate is carjacking. Simple things like wording, really matter right now, especially when they’re selling out of bullets in Philly.
No, carjacking is taking a car while someone driving it (inherently violent), whereas theft from auto can mean some kid breaking into your car for the stereo. Theft from auto, not theft of auto. Same for ‘stolen car’–as in your car is in your driveway and someone comes at 2 am to steal it. Non violent.
To Fizbin’s point–most insurance companies carry stop loss insurance to cover the upper limit of risk. IDK if USCCA has that (I’ll bet they have a similar type set up). They would have to if they wanted a viable business model. @Dawn–any insights?
This is all stuff defense. Don’t get me wrong I don’t want my stuff taken. However I’m also not willing to take a life over any of these crimes.
The emotions are completely understandable, however I feel as a responsible gun owner I am held to a higher standard and need to remain level headed. Just as it’s my responsibility to know what’s beyond a target it’s my responsibility to think long term consequences.
