Slingshot = "firearm" ? Oh yeah, about like horse = motor vehicle, good grief.
I'm not kidding,anything that can fire a dangerous projectile they consider a firearm,and also sitting on a bicycle with an open carried firearm is considered "concealed"because you are on a "vehicle",i'm not making this stuff up-I don't have that good of an imagination.

A slungshot is not the same as a slingshot. A slungshot is also called a monkey's fist. It is a weight tied inside a heavy knot on the end of a long cord that is used as a weapon. They were used as weapons in the 19th century.

I'm not a psychiatrist, but it just doesn't seem to me that OCD, and your particular social anxiety disorder should lead you to be dangerous. I'm sure I could be wrong but it just doesn't make sense to me.
