I'm glad folks like you don't make the laws.
What I am saying is you can't tell the good guy from the bad guy with street clothes. I said in the beginning concealed carry is my choice. And I used the term freak not a criminal.

Ya, unfortunately my state is one of the blues, however it is getting more red every year. If it weren't for welfare clogged cesspools of Milwaukee and Madison we would be completely red. Not that I believe it to be a red vs blue issue as much as a conservative vs libtard issue.

There are indicators, and markers that identify a persons intentions...

Person shopping with a gun on their back... Okay, I'd keep an eye on him, but he's obviously not doing harm.

Firing into a crowd, wearing a ski mask, screaming "Alluah Ahkbah"..probably bad.... That's a bad open carry. Bad.

Well in the context in which you used it I believe the term Freak to be synonymous with criminal, you are insinuating that a plain clothes individual is a risk to the people around him simply because he is legally carrying a gun. If he is a risk that means there is a chance he will rob or shoot someone in cold blood simply because he is carrying. Freak, criminal, same thing.

The funny part of this is if someone called because they weren't used to seeing people with guns and the cops showed up and shot you.... the report would say he had a gun and the police shot him. The End-

Especially is the activists are polite, well spoken, and willing to courteously address questions from the public.

Tack
I don't think I am beating this guy up, but I do question his judgement in doing what he did where he did it just a few weeks after the Newtown shooting when there is legislation pending. I just think it shows bad form.

I think the difference might be the location. If you are walking down the street with your AR where it is legal it may be perceived differently than if you are in a shopping mall. Do you think those two would not have been perceived as a potential threat had they been walking a mall instead of a neighborhood? Maybe maybe not.

Maybe help bring back some common sense in the "guns don't kill people, people kill people" mentality.
This is true, but again, just a few weeks after the recent shooting ans with pending legislation I think it is poor judgement. His actions are now in the national (probably global) public eye now and it will affect the discussion in Congress and I don't think it will be in a positive way for us.

I am disappointed, not bitter. I also would like others to learn from what has happened here.

While loaded open carry was ended in the early '70's under Reagan, unloaded open carry did not end until just a year ago for handguns and then long guns were included 4 months ago. California lost its mind probably somewhere in between.

I was at the gun range, and had to put everyone down... they were all wearing street clothes. I couldn't tell, man.... it was...awful.

Dude, California lost it's mind when Hollywood set up shop, and every frufru weirdo "artist" started flocking there in droves...Been that way since the 1920's.
Then the 60's hit, and the commies started flocking there, and spreading up the coast like a virus...infecting Seattle, and Portland. Now that they've ruined the state, they're metastasizing in Boulder and Denver, ruining Colorado. Asheville, North Carolina, and Atlanta Georgia are becoming new breeding grounds as well...

If a cop responded to a call about someone legally carrying a rifle slung on their shoulder and shot them dead that cop would be in a serious world of $hit. If you would support a cop killing someone in such a situation you have serious issues.
