A Baseball Bat Carried By Antifa Mobs Is A Lethal Weapon

BY Herschel Smith
6 months, 1 week ago

A baseball bat is a lethal weapon.  One blow to the head can kill, or perhaps even worse for the victim, it could maim due to TBI.

First of all, don’t be found among such people.  Second, the first time this occurred, the victim should have pulled a .45 ACP pistol and made it clear that one more advance would have sent a 230 grain ball his way.

This is the only way to handle people like this.  The victim is assuming that the next blow won’t be to the back of the skull.

Oh and make sure to note that since the Portland DA is self-identified Antifa, no charges will be filed.

    Your thoughts on how this whole thing will change, when blowback occurs?

    Any change, worse, or better/lessening violence?

    “Oh and make sure to note that since the Portland DA is self-identified Antifa, no charges will be filed.” Okay… Then this “case”, or one similar to it, will then be _removed_ to Courts of _different_ jurisdiction. One is the Heavenly Court. Certain. Just. The other may intervene, however, to adjudicate the Law of the Jungle.

    Seems like Portland and Seattle could benefit greatly from some enterprising guy with a 6.5 PRC. Wouldn’t that be funny.

    Yeah, I don’t know how those guys found themselves in that situation, but our people need to really up their game on avoiding just that. And don’t be unarmed. As hard as it is on the pride, taking off at a run was the right move there. They’re lucky they didn’t get swarmed before that.

    There are going to be a lot of innocent martyrs for the cause (we already have some), as awful and painful as that is going to be. It’s a shame, but it’s inevitable, as naive and ignorant people fall into their traps and don’t realize just how much danger they’re in from these feral cowardly animals.

    I went over to Andy’s twitter feed, and, the lights were evidently strobes, designed to blind, which would make it difficult to see well enough to shoot.

    So, 10 yard dash, stop, turn, drop to a knee, fire, repeatedly.

    Hard to keep your wits about one when in this situation.

    Gather information like this, think about it, then figure out how to deal with this kind of scenario, should it present itself.

    @Duke Norfolk,

    I cannot overestimate the effect of being outnumbered. If you’re outnumbered, the only remedies for that are (a) not being there to begin with, or (b) carrying firearms. Multiple. One primary, at least one backup. With replacement mags.

    With tactical light, green light laser, sturdy folder, med kit.

    It isn’t right but it is true that there are more and more places in America that you shouldn’t go under almost any circumstances. These people are going to be trapped in these hellholes when it blows up.

    230-grain ball, my happy ass–hollow point is what it would earn from me!
    Remember the advice of a wise man, Ol’ Remus, now gone to a better place to rejoin his beloved wife: Avoid crowds.

    @Budd,

    It’s still a ball, just in slightly different form.

    Don’t pull and show. Pull and shoot. Empty mag. Reload and scan area. Reacquire targets and fire again. Look for shits with phones or cameras. Target them. Be sure to finish off wounded. If they want a war, let them have a war.

    At some point, a group like this will discover they’ve been baited, and are now surrounded by a superior mob. The video of that should be interesting.

    I believe a well placed 9 MM Critical Defense round would serve the same deterrent purpose. And if one fails, there are 14 more waiting in line.
    Someone needs to shoot one of these assholes to demonstrate the dangers of attacking people.

    Always be carrying. Always have a wingman.

    @armst,

    Inadvisable if you want to stay out of prison. While the DA won’t go after Antifa (because he is one of them), he WILL go after you.

    Herschel, email inbound (TCJ).

    Any device capable of disabling is a deadly weapon. Include those with lasers & slingshots in the target list. Head shots for those with bats, knives or similar implements who are trying to use them. Center mass for lasers & slingshots as those will be more distant. If one in center mass doesn’t affect them, assume actual body armor and go for head or pelvis.
    9mm mags carry more rounds than .45 which is desirable in a mob. 1 or 2 rounds per target and carry plenty of spare mags.

    “the victim should have pulled a .45 ACP pistol and made it clear that one more advance would have sent a 230 grain ball his way.”

    Disagree, the victim should pull his/her weapon and place two rounds center mass, then check for effectiveness and fire again as needed, you do not talk, you do not give them the chance to disarm you, if you pull a weapon use immediately.

    @Oldcrow1,

    I understand the emotion behind your decision. However, if you unholster your weapon and the attacker begins to turn, the others begin to back away, and it’s all caught on video, you stand the chance of shooting someone in the side or back, in which case you spend the rest of your life in prison.

    If you’re new to these pages, here is the BLUF. The state is as much your enemy as Antifa. They will not protect you, but they will indeed prosecute you if they see any chance of success, all managed by “woke” DAs.

    Time To Muzzle On Target solves a lot of legal issues.

    Well I live in a ‘Stand Your round State’, no DA in this state would prosecute if your are defending yourself. Our law states that if you or any member of your family feel threatened, in your home, in your vehicle, walking down the street, any place you are legal to go, FIRE AWAY and live.

    Come down my road and try to start crap in my yard or my neighborhood and I will end up calling the coroner to pick up your dead carcass.

    Oregon, and especially Porkland, will put you in a deep, dark cell for pulling a weapon to push back a murderous crowd. It’s already happened (https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/2016/07/man_accused_of_pulling_gun_on.html). They (pantifa) own the town, and the Vassar-educated pussy DA will back them before you. We live 30 miles away and have not heard a peep, as they know some neighborhoods will just go ahead and shoot back, and have shovels and lots of acreage.
