    As moronic as open carry is, just how is it threatening? Do you realize that you're in favor of MURDER of people harmlessly slinging a rifle over their shoulder?
    Brandishing any deadly weapon is threatening.

    why would anyone be scared of a rifle draped over a shoulder?


    this is the puzzling part.... some folks see a firearm and automatically **** their pants... regardless of the actions or behavior of the carryer.
    of course, they see cops and rent a cops every day carrying, and they're perfectly fine with it.

    i'm not sure why liberals/progressives feel society is so very untrustworthy... it's weird.

    A holstered or shoulder slung weapon is not Brandishing, I suggest you read up on the law. Not pointing a weapon nor holding a weapon "in such a manner as to reasonably induce fear in the mind of another of being shot or injured" is NOT brandishing.

    assault rifle noun
    : a gun that can shoot many bullets quickly and that is designed for use by the military
    Full Definition of ASSAULT RIFLE

    : any of various automatic or semiautomatic rifles with large capacity magazines designed for military use
    Feigning obtuseness does nothing whatsoever for your argument.

    those aren't similar expressions, sorry.

    I don't open carry either... i have, but it kinda defeats my purposes for carrying.
    I don't mind that others do, though.... them exercising their rights has no bearing on me.

    i don't even mind cops open carrying... or even rent a cops...

    It's the context. Deer camp or a gun show I expect it. There are a lot of places I expect it. However, if you are behind the counter at an inner city convenience store, you don't expect a legitimate customer to walk in with a rife draped over their shoulder and you might just shoot first and ask questions later.
