    This is an old friend who has thought long and hard on 2nd Amendment issues. We should listen carefully to what he has to say.

      Stranded Wind,

      I had a similar background to your upbringing.
      Non-urban, transitioning to suburban, where the "persons of color" in my community were there 100+ years before my ancestors came to town.  
      They weren't the object of abject white fear, of the '68 Riots coming to town.
      They were the kids I went to school with, the kids I hunted and fished with.  

      Years later, they dated white girls, as it's illegal to date your sister or cousin.
      We saw them as peers.  
      White trash from out-of-town saw them as "Filthy Niggers".
      They pulled knives.  We drew licensed guns, and/or guns and badges.  Win

      Years later, I worked in NYC for a while, in an all-black area of the Bronx and Brooklyn.  I learned one thing:

      There are times, when going through procedures, and addressing things by complaint to the authorities, never produces a tangible positive result.

      "They" know the system, and how far they can go, prior to meaningful law enforcement action.  Even then, a message from jail, and a henchman wreaks vengeance.

      As to your situation?  
      If "Nancy and the kids" were mine?  
      I'd screw my SIG into that som'na'bitches mouth, while my knife rested in his crotch.

      "Pick one - brains or balls - one of them is leaving with me."

      See, I believe in equal rights... and reaping what you have been sowing.  I sow tolerance and respect regardless of race, economics, religion or lack thereof.

      If I reap a bitter harvest, I put away my seed, and pick up my scythe.  Cut it off at the root, noxious weeds are of no benefit to the community.

      I'm old, and a retirement home or a prison is much the same.  As long as my kids can visit... if you get my drift.
