    After watching the purge: anarchy this evening on Netflix, I wondered what would you do in this situation? Would you seek safety? Where? Would you become an overnight vigilante (or the equivalent with no laws in place)? Or would you cleanse your soul, and release your "inner raging beast" to all those before you?
    There's nobody I really want to see hurt enough to go out hunting for them so I'd probably just stay in my house and shoot everyone that tries to get in

    that would work nice if we had prior warning but I was assuming a sudden and unexpected scenario haha
    Yeah haha, I guess if we did it properly we'd know in advance because it would become an annual "holiday"

    Seems sensible, whereabouts do you live though? (City, small town etc)

    I live in a city so I'd probably either need a hella load of ammo or to stay in my friends house in the countryside for a night and hope for the best when I got back

    Oh right, yeah that's a tricky one. You'd want to defend your property and possessions but wouldn't want to be too reckless and stay in a high population density area

    All that being said, however, I would think that the basic human survival instinct would win out over any desire to steal or kill. I doubt that anybody in their right mind would try and rob someone who has a gun pointed at them, especially with the knowledge that there is no ambulance service available on the night of the Purge so any wound sustained could easily be fatal
