They're on threema though

2017-08-07 03:30:58 UTC  

@V I T A L I T Y Sounds good - channel your inner Bob Probert

2017-08-07 03:39:29 UTC  

Concentrated Liquid Gatorade?

2017-08-07 03:42:06 UTC  

Yep, I usually take it backpacking to hide iodine tablet taste when drinking from springs, creeks etc

2017-08-07 03:42:27 UTC  

Comes in a small squirt bottle. Wal-Mart/Grocery stores sell it near me

2017-08-07 03:50:35 UTC  

I dont want concentrated sugar tho

Bring Pedialyte @Hand Banana

2017-08-07 15:07:51 UTC  

Probably better to wear regular sunglasses which would double as spray protection as well as dox protection.

2017-08-07 15:26:37 UTC  

After much research for something suitable and relatively inexpensive, plus slightly "tacticool", behold:

2017-08-07 15:43:03 UTC  

I'm bringing my DeWalt goggles. Lol.

2017-08-07 16:15:49 UTC  

My main concern is potentially infringing the no-mask laws; I would only wear these if shit really hit the fan, otherwise it would be sunglasses

2017-08-07 16:19:30 UTC  

VA will jump your ass over the masks, and ten to one says the nigger vice mayor won't be trying to get charges dropped for us if anything happens.

2017-08-07 16:20:48 UTC  

Would ski goggles work? Lol

2017-08-07 16:21:00 UTC  


2017-08-07 16:21:01 UTC  

Ideally you want something snug fitting and shatter proof.

2017-08-07 16:21:32 UTC  

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.

2017-08-07 16:21:39 UTC  

ESS are just that and can be found at any decent surplus shop

2017-08-07 16:49:22 UTC  

And something with an anti-fog coating, or to which you have applied and anti-fog coating. It's going to be hot.

2017-08-07 19:43:23 UTC  

ESS goggles are fucking huge though, I have a pair

2017-08-07 19:44:01 UTC  

They have trouble staying in place if you just wear them by themselves without a helmet as well

2017-08-07 19:51:10 UTC  

I don't have that problem

2017-08-07 19:51:18 UTC  

Fit me fine

2017-08-07 21:24:12 UTC

2017-08-07 21:24:19 UTC  

So should bring my armor now ...

2017-08-07 21:27:04 UTC  

Hell with it. I'm bringing my shield baton and my flagpole

2017-08-07 21:53:23 UTC  

Don't wearbody armor

2017-08-07 21:53:32 UTC  

IF you wear body armor and commit a crime in VA it's a felony

2017-08-07 21:53:40 UTC  

Unlawful Assembly is a crime

2017-08-07 22:11:59 UTC  

Wouldn't ware it but it is going in the bag for a worst case sinereo where we take fire

2017-08-07 22:14:00 UTC  

@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

2017-08-07 22:14:12 UTC  

Hence I won't be CCing

2017-08-07 22:18:26 UTC  

Yeah no thanks I'm not going unarmed anywhere need AntiFA

2017-08-07 22:21:43 UTC  

Thats your individual perogative

2017-08-07 22:22:39 UTC  

Gun = no brawling.

2017-08-07 22:23:49 UTC  

Having fists you can use might be more useful

2017-08-07 22:24:04 UTC  

I don't plan on fighting i plan on keeping my principal safe

2017-08-07 22:24:19 UTC  

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.
