Well-Armed Neighbors Make Good Neighbors | USCCA

Before all the quarantines, lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, my husband and I had a very exciting day at the shooting range. No, we didn’t get perfect zero-down targets for an entire IDPA match. No, we didn’t get to buy and try a brand-new firearm. And no, we didn’t meet the President, win the lottery or train with Benghazi warrior Kris Paronto (yet?!?!). Those would all be pretty awesome happenings, but we did experience something rather unusual — and pretty surreal.

I second that Dawn. So many people don’t know the people who live around them, it sure isn’t what it used to be. I’m genuinely happy for you and your family and your neighbors. :+1:

That’ is a fortuitous article! My own fence is falling down on all sides the last 2 years, and my adjacent neighbors thus far are fine with it. We’ve been postponing cost sharing its replacement, but a windstorm last week has made it … really bad. I will bring it up again, and shoot for a well-armed neighbor two-fer!

It appears the risks to suburbia is increasing. For example: https://www.rawstory.com/2020/06/armed-st-louis-couple-ar-15-at-black-lives-matter-protesters/

What do we do with this? What is the threshold for fear for one’s safety from a mob of tens, or hundreds, at the edge of, or even on, one’s property?
