I think sudden movements, loud engines, revving engines, yelling or initial out of place noises all would get my attention if I had my back turned to a vehicle being used as a weapon. These are my thoughts. Carrying a weapon concealed on your person when allowed by law is always a good idea in my book.

Thanks.

And Chicago. Don't forget Chicago with its no nonsense gun laws and high standard of safety.

Stay out of big cities. Stay out of public places with large gatherings. Have a conceal carry permit and carry. Have an M1 Carbine next to your bed at night.

Heh, it's why my friends, family and I, have all renewed our subscriptions to Netflix, HBO, HULU, and renewed our memberships to Sams and Costcos, so we can buy in bulk and just have gatherings at eachother's houses, watching movies, sharing recipes, and staying away from all of the BS.

True! A black girl I know got cheated on by her boyfriend. She knows he lives in the thick of the ghetto, so she got back at him by slapping a "I voted for Trump" bumper sticker on the back of his car. Word is, he did get jumped for it. But, I'm not sure if I feel sorry for him. It was kind of clever on her part.

You have a knack for coming up with the best 'worst post of the day.'
Yeah, I saw Burdell's post and I had to laugh. Some of the greatest places I have visited, monuments and whatnot were national state parks overlooking the mountains. No where near the cities. Heck, I would think the greatest musical festival that happened on American soil, happened on a dairy farm!

Just stay out of the Airport bathrooms after midnight and you'll do fine.

The most dangerous places in America are the ones where the terrorists at the NRA control the state legislatures.
Ya, stay away from Arizona. There are regular cowboy shootouts.
