The assailants were teens.

The assault happened at 2:45 a.m. which is about when the strip joints close.

It happened in the dregs of the south side of town.

That is NOT a place you should go unarmed.

Not a place one should go at all, after dark.

And being armed against that many, wouldn't help.

With my CZ 97B and 2 mags I would have had a good time picking off each of the little teen miscreants.

Ya' jus' need ta' be able ta' shoot, move, and communicate.

The victim was probably walking back to his car or else he walked to the strip joints from his home.

They did not say which on the local news.

Sooty, but San Francisco is a gun free zone, and you will be arrested for defending yourself with a firearm.

If you are foolish enough to hang around then you would be arrested for defending yourself period.

Does not matter how.

It is always amazing how the first media report is usually exaggerated.

Well it was on the news last night and they said it was a bunch of teens mobbing a single guy.

They left out any description of the races of the perps and victim in the politically correct city by the bay.

Oh sure. You are going to shoot someone on the street and run for it? Have you ever heard of "consciousness of guilt". You would have little or no defense in court.

I would feel really guilty if I missed.

Marines and former Marines only cry over wasted ammo.

Wouldn't you prefer they wait and give the correct information?

With the media you have to wait to get the actual story. I really doubt it was 30 people beating up one guy. Just not that gullible anymore.

Well the kids did not hang around to be counted.

And the victim is recovering in the hospital still.

... Why is this interesting news? Do you live in "The City"? Knowing you, you don't. So I'm not sure what the draw is here.

He was coming home from a bar, I hear.

I think a smart play is to fire a round into the concrete sidewalk, spalling them with fragments and destroying the bullet at the same time. Then call in a shooting at a phony location

Bars close around 1:30 a.m.

It was way too late to be coming home from a bar.

That's a lie you tell your wife or girlfriend.

He lives in Oregon -- land of timber and paper.

Oregon is a shall issue state with a fairly low crime rate.

Turns out it was 6

San Francisco police said 6 Asian teenage boys and girl between 15 and 18 years old attacked a 29-year-old Asian man from Hayward.

So there you go again. When in the hell are people going to learn that not everything out of the media or a politician's mouth is the gospel. It is no freaking wonder we have Trump and Clinton in the election.
People are going to swallow whatever hook, line and sinker tossed to them.

Even after this posting by Crovax that it was only 6 and not 30 the very next posting after him refers to 30 attackers. Maybe we do deserve a Trump or Clinton presidency.
