    Election day violence potential and self-defense. What are your thoughts??

    Some people I know are expressing concerns with being hassled or threatened when they go to vote next week. I hadn't really thought about it before they mentioned it. What do you guys think?? When me and the Mrs. go to vote: I'd like to be packing, and yes I have the permit to do so legally, the problem from a legal standpoint is that here in my home state, (like many states) it is NOT legal for anyone but Law Enforcement to carry heat inside of a government or state building which includes school buildings like the one we have to vote in.

    And what if the voting poll where we go to cast our vote anticipates problems, and has metal detectors set-up inside the school gymnasium where we vote? It might turn out to be a real bad day for me if I got caught by Law Enforcement bringing a firearm inside the school building with me. So I'm inclined to arm myself and the Mrs. with pepper spray instead. Not nearly as effective as a handgun, but legal as far as I know. It would be a different story if our votes were being cast outside of the building.

    On the other hand, how would anyone looking for trouble even know who you intend to vote for, unless you have bumper stickers plastered all over your vehicle, or you're wearing a Biden or a MAGA hat???? I guess there might be some potential this time around for someone outside demanding to know who you'll be voting for, but I dunno. You think that's a stretch of the imagination? I'm not really sure what to think this time around. But for discussion as well as food for thought, what is your viewpoint about packing heat while walking into a school building, vs. having pepper spray instead? Or the need for either one for that matter? Feel free to share your viewpoints please.

    if it’s a felony to carry I would not carry. Mofos only mess with pansies who won’t look em straight in the eyes ... also carry a brass knuckle in your back pocket

    I wouldn’t worry about it.

    trump voters won’t start shit and pansy antifatards vote by mail. It’s like a black bear.... typically they are more afraid of you.

    I’m not worried. I go to vote at a volunteer fire company, next to a cornfield, and I park my pickup truck next to all the other pickup trucks. There’s no violence. Just rational conservatives waiting in line to exercise our constitutional right. It’s beautiful.

    I live in NH, pretty peaceful around me. Antifa-tards & libs only pick on the weak anyways, would welcome some kuntt to get in my face honestly at this point.

    I would err on the side of caution. No gun but be alert. Most bullies are like balloons , you pop them they go away

    In the great state of Michigan we can even open carry to go vote. If I had one of those chest rigs where the gun is across your chest I'd open carry the .357 in that.

    Already voted, wife dropped off the ballots the day we had a snow storm. place was empty.

    There is going to be violence on election day and the days afterwards though so I would be at high situational awareness. Multiple groups have told their people to vote and start protesting.

    I am in NH so yes I already voted and no issues here. The only ones with violence on their minds are the hoodlums who take pride in harassing people.

    As I will be traveling to Las Vegas in 10 days the biggest worry will be the protests still occurring.

    You wouldn’t have to worry about the hoodlums anyway...

    No more concerned about voting violence than I am anything else. Pretty sure it will be ok.

    heard a lot about all this voter intimidation and i'm wondering the same thing u are. How the hell are they gonna know who ur voting for? it's illegal to wear any MAGA hats or Biden t-shits, or anything like that. I guess u always gonna have some asshole causing trouble and prob. trying to get it out of you. But I know where I live and I think most anywhere u can't carry, even if u have a permit something like W/I 200 ft. of a voting spot. But as we all know, not everyone obeys the law(imagine that) so I guess there's always a chance of violence. BUT- in today's world, i'm on guard going to the fuckin grocery store so...... now afterwards is another story-that's what i'm worried about-especially if Biden wins!
