    Mutual Assistance Group in your hood.

    Mainly for those in the suburbs, have any of you thought of starting a MAG ( Mutual Assistance Group) in your neighborhood?
    Basically a group of like minded people to take a stand against any attempt at Antifa type violence on your streets.
    Blocking off key streets, armed deterrence, and sharing of resources if it comes your way. Status quo until it’s time to enact the plan. But there has to be a plan first.

    i’m considering starting one but it would have to involve asking everyone to get onboard and I’m leery of asking the wrong people and showing my hand.
    Discuss.

    nope.

    planning is essential, sticking to a plan is suicide

    I talk to my neighbors in a neighborly fashion. that is plenty neighborhood violence from not agents of the state in a co-ordinated manner beyond 'gang activity' ?

      nope, just 4 people on my street, all like minded, fly our flags high.
      all are shooters that look out for each other.

        This would be a last resort type effort should the police abandon their duty and leave our self defense in our hands. The neighborhood as I know consists of probably 6-8 houses in either direction. We know each other but don’t exactly talk about this type of thing.

        My feeling is that it’s going to take many more in the surrounding area to be an effective force.

        As as far as the gang label, if the SHTF I’m guessing it’s not going to be a significant issue.

          That’s awesome and exactly what I’m trying to get but with 50+ neighbors.

            Maybe my place is unusual.. but I don’t really talk to my neighbors. I rarely even see them outside, and that’s three different houses.

            I wouldn’t trust my neighbors truthfully. Now up on the 4dee that a totally different story.

              I live behind a gate with manned shack, only one way in.

              if they want in my neighborhood, they better be driving trucks with lawnmowers and weed whackers in the back.

              on a more serious note, alignment with like minded neighbors is a good thing, and will probably be a good idea moving forward.
              this current crap will blow over soon enough but it’s only a matter of time before the next “thing” rears it’s ugly head.

              if it were me, I would call for a neighborhood meeting of some sorts, keep “my” cards very close to my chest, and just ask what people’s concerns are.
              You will be able to tell fairly easy who you want to invite to a 2nd meeting.

              Best o Luck
              keep is posted.

                I'm the same way. I'll wave and be friendly but that's about it. I talk to one of my neighbors, who's actually a cop in a different really shitty ghetto suburb, and that's about it. It's like the zombie apocalypse in my neighborhood, really quiet and people are rarely out. We have just about every race represented and evreyone seems pretty cool blue collar middle to lower middle class, I'm not worried. Also after all this shit went down I have planned out about 4 different offroad exits out of here if the SHTF.

                Decent amount of Latinos in my neighborhood so im sure if a pack of or white kid looters came in to start some crap they would be the first ones out cracking skulls.

                  Good advice and precisely what I had planned, just not sure the best way to go about it initially.
                  Flyers on doors for a multi block party perhaps? Flyers giving an email addy for contact if interested?
                  I just don’t want to be the only one out there defending my shit while they gain traction in the neighborhood. Numbers are key.

                  All of this could very well be a waste of effort but if someone in the neighborhood reached out to me in the same way, I’d be interested. I’m just trying to be the proactive one since nobody has yet.

                      "if nobody is in charge, you are in charge"

                      it is pretty amazing how quickly a bunch of people with a common general interest will get involved with the slightest bit of motivation. probably worthwhile to have the conversation with the 2 or so houses you know the best, if shit hits the fan, yall get to it and everybody else will stay inside without having to feel bad about it or join in.

                        Our hood is really quiet as well. Lots of families and elderly, and everyone keeps to themselves for the most part but always friendly when you see them.
                        These idiots have threatened to come into suburbia and wreak havoc so I think the neighborhood should have a plan is all. Might not ever happen but I didn’t think 2020 would happen like it has either.

                            In a similar situation. I kept my house in the city when we bought our place in BFE, but I still stay there occasionally when we need to go into town for shopping etc. I lived there for about 25 years and rarely talked to my neighbors as they moved in and out of the area so quickly. Based on the bumper stickers and yard signs, I wouldn't trust any of them in that type of situation or let them know about any plans I might have.

                            At my place out here in BFE I know my neighbors and most are like minded and mostly able to take care of our area. Out here my few neighbors even share our house keys so we can keep an eye on each others homes if they are out of town.

                              I may or may not have a few of the same friends, but others with like friends would be a better advantage.

                              I cant move away for better ground for a few years so I’m stuck here trying to make the best of it.
