Well people in the ghetto sometimes just stand outside

If its you car I would say no (unless you're in texas).
If you are being assaulted and feel your life is threatened then yes you have the right to defend yourself.
The truth is one gunshot up in the air would have scattered that entire crowd of cowards and that would have stopped it. People that do that are scared just like anyone else, they just are immature and careless.
