Protests in Fayetteville turn violent.

Looks like it was peaceful, till is wasn't.

Fayetteville protestors take urban unrest to a whole new level.

Some drive out to the Mall to loot JC Penny. JC Penny???????

Although the complete Sears building is gone there is still Belk and Macy's. Plus all the little glass front stores outside along the "L" formed by Macy's and Belk.

JC Penny???????

Reading the time line in the FayOb it appears the Mayor must have told the police to let the mob have the Market House area.

Here in Los Angeles:

News chopper showing a group of thugs trashing and looting a small business.

At the same time:

A reporter on the ground is interviewing a BLM member complaining the police are very threatening, treating them like criminals.

Luckily, face masks are required in LA at all times, even when looting. Its about saving lives.

If you and a friend want to loot a big screen TV, make sure to get one big enough so you can maintain 6 feet of social distancing while you carry it.

Did I read that the family was going to bring Mr Floyd to Fayetteville for a family viewing? Has that happened?

One of my bucket list items is to get my 1962 Browning Belgian FN A5, that I received for my 12BD, Cut. My father, bless his soul, was old school and swore that a shotgun needs 30inch barrels to be effective. I would like to get mine cut to 20inch and have it threaded for choke tubes. Why still on the list, a friend gave me an old Ithica M-37 Police, 18inch open bore, that slam fires nicely,

Thank you very much

Not sure I would chop a significantly personal and valuable weapon like an Auto 5. You will ruin its value and utility.

Until the Wuhan virus, you could have bought a nice new Mossberg riot gun for $400 or so.

Lesson learned: Don't wait till a crisis hits to make your preparations.

Ok, we're not supposed to post Y*****e videos anymore but there's a funny one on there of the arsonists torching the Fayetteville Market House. Looks like one of them accidently spilled a flammable substance on himself.

Sometimes karma can be instant.
