Sounds like a good way to go to prison or get yourself shot by police officers or other armed citizens who see you.In GA you can defend yourself and third parties from threats of harm or death with lethal force, with no limit on distance. I wonder if the same holds true for NC. A few rifles on an overpass 500 yards or so from the "protest" should straighten out the malicious ones pretty quick.
There were "minor injuries." You would have a hard time selling justification to a jury, that it was "necessary" to take 500 yard shots into a crowd, in that instance.
