    No.

    no need to imagine.. i can just ..recall.

    when we were kids in the late 50's and 60's, we had to carry our rifles out to the desert to shoot... hell, we even stopped for drinks and treats along the way.
    it was no big deal.

    I agree that, without reason, one is unlikely to walk about carrying an assault rifle, or any firearm, in the course of normal affairs but you do acknowledge that some may possess a valid reason to expect an (armed?) attack - should they not be permitted to be ready to respond to that situation?
    If I expect to be murdered soon, there's no way in hell I'm going out in public unarmed. If I could prove that my life was in danger, I would most likely put myself into police custody, assuming staying home and fortifying my position as best I could isn't an option. And last time I checked, I wasn't arguing against this law - just voicing concern over whether or not one should just walk around with an assault rifle for no reason.

    I haven't read the entire thread, but I don't have to in order to give my answer: No, it's not justifiable; it's murder.

    That is presuming that the weapon is either shouldered (if a long gun) or holstered (if a hand gun). Now if someone comes in holding a handgun, or holding a rifle at the ready, then they are putting forth a threatening demeanor, and if the establishment's owner then draws a weapon, demands the customer put the weapon away and he doesn't, then that very well could be seen as a case of self-defense.
