Would ski goggles work? Lol
Ideally you want something snug fitting and shatter proof.
Keep in mind nothing you will have is likely to completely stop the pepper spray, just slow it down. It does work its way around seals and get in.
ESS are just that and can be found at any decent surplus shop
And something with an anti-fog coating, or to which you have applied and anti-fog coating. It's going to be hot.
ESS goggles are fucking huge though, I have a pair
They have trouble staying in place if you just wear them by themselves without a helmet as well
I don't have that problem
Fit me fine
So should bring my armor now ...
Hell with it. I'm bringing my shield baton and my flagpole
Don't wearbody armor
IF you wear body armor and commit a crime in VA it's a felony
Unlawful Assembly is a crime
Wouldn't ware it but it is going in the bag for a worst case sinereo where we take fire
@Hand Banana Also just carrying a fire arm while committing a crime is a felony so any of us CCWing are going to be already fucked if arrested
Hence I won't be CCing
Yeah no thanks I'm not going unarmed anywhere need AntiFA
Thats your individual perogative
Gun = no brawling.
Having fists you can use might be more useful
I don't plan on fighting i plan on keeping my principal safe
The problem is that in some situations they can hold the entire group accountable for the one as part of "the problem." So if one is arrested and carrying, it can effect everybody. I won't tell you not to carry, just be mindful of the major consequences potentially involved.
If shit gets bad I have some one I need to get the hell out of dodge
Do what you think is best for you, knowing your own personal ability to handle these situations.
For the average Joe Blow, I'd say leave the firearm at home.
Don't let yourself be "that cuck" without a torch for Friday night's vigil!
Shields at the ready...
I've seen people talking about how a hat and sunglasses together is covering too much, but I don't know if that's based on law or a guess
Find a white cop with rank insignia to ask
anyone using a shield, what are you using in your other hand? i see batons are discouraged but would a 3 foot dowel be deemed unlawful?
or 2 feet, whatever length
I think flag poles are what most would be carrying
What is the dress code for Friday night's tiki torch gathering - white polos?
Hawaiian shirts and shorts
Tiki torches are the last stand of implicit whiteness
is there a standard issue gear list for attendees?
>tfw you look like a school shooter
