Is it legal to run over protesters? In a word, no. It is illegal to intentionally kill anyone or attempt to do so, except in self-defense.

However... it is also illegal to block traffic.

I believe I would respond in the following way, which is sort of what I already did once when driving through a very dangerous area one evening after making a wrong turn:
  • Call the police and alert them to the situation.
  • Wait several moments for the police to arrive.
  • If the police do not arrive, pull the hogleg out from beneath the seat and lay it on the dash within easy reach and in plain view.
  • Slowly proceed forward, motioning as necessary for people to get out of my way.
  • At the first show of violence (baton hitting my vehicle), floor it and push my way as far as I can. At that point I am in self-defense mode.
  • If the vehicle stalls, grab the gun and start mowing indiscriminately.
  • Get clear of the situation as quickly as possible.
  • Assess damages.
  • Contact an attorney and sue the crap out of anyone protesting for damages... and include the city as a defendant for not controlling the protest.
Now, that may seem cruel to some here, but I really, really don't care. Cruel is in the eyes of the observer. I have the right to continue on with my life, and if that means someone in open violation of the law has to die, well, I wasn't the one who instigated the situation. Some might want to remember that should they ever be tempted to try this little trick. Playing in the road is not a wise life choice.

As for someone coming to my house and demanding reparations? As long as they have not caused any damage, they get one warning to leave. If they do not heed said warning, or if they cause any damage to my property, I will drop their happy little rear ends where they stand and call the police to clean up their mess. They do not have to enter my home for this to happen; they only have to be on my property. If they are not on my property I will ignore them as much as possible, but if they do any damage to my property using thrown objects, I will drop them there as well.

That is how it works here. Don't start no crap, won't be no crap. Start crap, and you're liable to get buried in the ensuing explosive diarrhea.

Them blocking you in and not allowing you to leave an area in most states is kidnapping. A felony. My Glock 19 wouldnt let that happen.

No unless you feel you life is in danger!
So the first thing you say to the cops is
"I fell't my life was in danger, I would like a lawyer"
and Dont say any more.

Tell them you feared for your life then shoot them.



Works for the police...


Works for me too, started caring in my car when all this started, I hope I don't have but I refuse to become a statistic of being killed by the Socialist nut bags of crap!


I can't believe ats moderators are now fine with a thread like this.


It is allowed because these are extraordinary times.

Democrats have caused: National Emergency Declaration, State Declarations, Damaged the U.S. Economy, Incited Riots, Increased Suicides and Drug deaths, Fear porno Spewed by 90% of U.S. Media 24/7... etc.

ISIS and Al-Qaeda used to DREAM about accomplishing what Democrats have done to America in just 6 months.

During this Un-precedented moment in U.S. history, it's important that we consult with each other on important subjects that have never needed to be addressed before.

It's good of AboveTopSecret to facilitate our interactions, no matter how unpleasant the subject may be for some.

I hope that answers your concern about ATS.

From what I've seen in recent videos, nearly every driver made an honest attempt to drive slowly through the crowd without hurting anyone. It wasn't until the mob started breaking windows or beating on the car that the drivers said 'F' these ppl, I'm out of here.

As much as I would prefer all gunplay to be conducted with blanks, for obvious reasons, there is a serious danger there. First and foremost, if someone in the crowd realizes that you are firing blanks, the fear factor will dissipate and anger will set in. At that point, you'll have a very angry mob swarming you.

Most guns will use blanks, although it is possible you might have to replace the recoil spring in semi-autos to compensate for the lesser amount of energy being spent. Blanks use extra fine powder and smaller loads; whatever you do, do not use blank powder with live ammo if you value your gun. The end of the casing must be crimped, accomplished by using special crimping dies during reloading. These are not easily found, nor are they cheap.

As you have probably guessed by now, blanks have to be custom loaded... at least, I have never seen any blank ammo for sale.

Blanks are also not 100% safe like the movies would have you believe. When the powder explodes, there is a chance that a small piece of casing can become a projectile; movie sets always use new casings and inspect them using x-rays to ensure no metal weaknesses. At very close range, the burning powder can also cause some pretty painful burns as some of it will escape the barrel as well.

So you're looking at an expensive, time consuming procedure that still has a chance of expelling projectiles, in order to take a real chance at escalating a situation. Not worth it, IMO. I'll stick with the threat of violence as the deterrent rather than faux violence any day.

Many people, get out of work and have to do things like get to the bus stop right away to pick up their child.
Are you going to let some person prevent you from getting your child, leaving your kid standing at a bus stop in tears wondering where mom or dad is.... panicking because no one is there to pick him up? Thinking you forgot about him.

Block my way.......... I will run you over. Prevent me from getting to my kid.... I will come back and run you over a 2nd time

A motor vehicle can very well be construed as a deadly weapon if used as such.

Yet the perp driver...if involved in such a dastardly deed, may very well have to suffer the consequences; like "Snake" did in the movie - Escape From New York.

The very fact that you would even suggest this, shows what a screwed up mentality you have from the get go. Any thinking person who saw this thread would immediately dismiss anything you ever have to say about anything. The nuerons are simply not connecting properly with you.

If they are standing in the road and you just drive through them then I believe you'd be in trouble.

Now if they attacked and damaged your vehicle, giving you reason to fear for your safety, then I think you would be okay in the court system.

Several states have already passed legislation that you are not liable for injury of a protester who is illegally blocking a road.

In my state, restricting someone's ability to exit a certain place is called false arrest, it's a crime.

So, they cease being "protesters" and become kidnappers. I think it's up to the victim how to secure a safe escape. You can, of course, protect yourself with deadly force.

I just read about this very thing on a defense attorney blog. Keep in mind this applies to Florida but describes many difference scenarios.

A violent crowd of people blocking people in illegally are not protestors. They are a violent mob of criminals.

Use the correct terminology. This is why everyone hates you and your ilk. You lie, gaslight, and spout bull#.

Well you know, you are welcome to see yourself out of the conversation if it disturbs you so. Although I do enjoy your entertaining jungle gymnastics to justify the behavior of violent criminals and their terrroristic ways.




Oh that's strange, aren't you defending the right for lunatics to drive cars into protestors.

This also bring up what I should've said a lot earlier. It would be a very good idea to have a dash cam in your car. Anything happens just go to the tape.

But, the people in charlottesville didnt have things to do or places to go? They should have just all stayed in.
Obviously, anyone out in the street were crazed protesters!

Anyone intentionally blocking traffic by playing in the street is not a protestor. They are either young children with parents who need to be watching them, mentally deficient enough to be in a mental health facility, or Darwin Award contestants.

Charlottesville?? "Who's streets, our streets" .. the nazis were marching in the streets too!

And.. have you ever been driving down a road and had to slow down for a bunch of teenagers too stupid to get out of the road? Would you consider them fair game for a hit and run?
And, well, maybe if we taught those teenagers a little better, they would know enough now not to be out in the road playing in traffic!
