Dave your article is excellent as usual, I hope George gets he deserves.
You ask; "what would you do?"... hard to say in a situation like that. Part of me says if they threatened me, call their bluff, till they approach to make good on their threat then, eliminate the threat. Sad that our world has come to cater to the criminals and hinder law abiding citizens from protecting themselfs. I only hope we dont see in the news that they have been gunned down by the group threatening them.
