    Nope, just let the warning be the pile of bodies. In fact, if you ever wanted to shoot a couple of gangstas this is your chance. Even with all of the video available, have you noticed that nobody is ever caught after these riots? Well then, you should be clear to knock down some crips and bloods and make the world a better place. I know, I know, Black Lives Matter. It's OK, lately there have been a lot of definitions that have been changed to protect the offended, we'll just call these late term abortions. Considering how many are performed in the black community anyway, to paraphrase Hillary Clinton, "At this point, what difference does it make?"

    Which is to say, if you have a tiny penis, are afraid of everyone around you (and potentially your own shadow), and your wife wears the pants in your family, and as a result you've fantasized about shooting someone because that's the only thing in your empty little life that you can imagine will make you a man, this is your chance.

    Far as I'm concerned, so much as twitch in the direction of my wife and kids and you earned yourself a bullet.

    But if you steal my TV and blender or, God forbid, my "inventory", mehhh.... I'll just settle with my insurance carrier and call it a day.

    Aw, did I strike a nerve? It seems you have more respect for urban thugs than you do for business owners. As a business owner I can assure you that insurance companies are not going to swoop in and save the day, making everything like it never happened. But I can tell from your shallow attacks that you prefer feelings to facts, so I'll just leave you to that. There is no point in informing the willfully ignorant.

    No, you said something that's generally indicative of cowardice and low self esteem.

    That's all I was pointing out.

    The law doesn't allow this, unfortunately.
    Machine guns are difficult for the poorly trained to control and you get serious issues with collateral damage. I would say pistols, shotguns, and semi-automatic rifles should do the trick.

    Though it's not implausible that a lot of these guys will be hyped up on something when they come through your front façade, so either a shotgun or a large caliber round would be advised.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    with respect, that would be an awful weapon for defending a store.

    They have all right to use proportionate force to protect their property and well being, went with the first choice.

    I thought that too, unless you were a couple of blocks away and suppressed. I don't think there is A best weapon for that, if you asked me what I would choose I would say friends. I'd rather not face a crowd alone.
