Both the powder AND the can are useful tools.

Some of these replies really have left me wondering.. If I had a mob of people in my front yard on my property, I'd call the cops. I would do that also or anyone protesting at the home of my older neighbor. I wouldn't engage them verbally because that's playing into their hands and I personally believe they are mostly beyond fixing, even if it is The Truth. I wouldn't engage them physically unless they were a threat to my family or my property. Texas has some pretty solid laws surrounding home and property defense, but the ultimate solution is for the cops to show up and make them leave. By that time I will have photos of most if not all of their faces, license plates, make/model of cars, (mostly Prius's). And would use that to gather my own intel on them. In my mind grabbing a gun and walking around with it or whatever the case is, will only escalate and I would prefer they do that.
I intend to get a 12 gauge riot gun, and about 100 rounds of 00 Buck, and a video camera of some sort. Because 2 dozen people showing up at my house will require hard measures.

Crowds were used in the Russian and Chinese Communist revolutions, to terrify and kill any opposition. The Antifa clowns must think that conservatives do not read and learn from history. Because they sure don't, and it is always foolhardy to join a crowd who is bent on mayhem. You might get killed.

I am reading The 9/11 Commission Report, and I am about 1/4 of the way through it. It is very well written and it is worth reading. [Sep 23 2019]
I found the perfect solution, pepper spray grenades.
Made my contingency plan when this was uttered. You should have as well.
"There is a destiny that shapes our ends, Rough, hew them as we will."
Have that covered.

The road is marked private, no trespassing allowed.
Now if there were no police available, the first hostile act such as moving off the road towards the house,
intending to throw a Molotov cocktail at the house or anything else would bring severe negative reaction to the perpetrators.
I have much more effective weapons to use than a shotgun for crowds of rioters. I had been in the 1965 Watts riots.
Have 12 Ga. riot guns also if needed.
I really don't have to worry much, I am rural and in the woods.
I'm not in the suburbs but the "Dark Heart Part of Me" almost wishes that thugs and punks like this come try and "burn that shit down" at Slippy Lodge!

My contingency plan was started when I left Compton in 1965 and headed back to home in the Northeast.

The key is, FIREPOWER!
Such class of people were the motivation of me moving rural, no stores here to rob or loot around here, no jiving the people either.
One idiot from that class of people robbed the only liquor store in the area on the main highway,could go only East or West on it.
Was stopped crossing the town line at a road block set up, did 10 years for armed robbery after recovery from gunshot wounds.
