    I would say there's a good reason to be extra vigilant...

    just responding to each of your posts to me--
    telling me I'm talking out my ass when I object to your open-carry rifle-toter disturbing the peace--
    and infringing on the rights of others to not worry about rifle-toter shooting him in the back when he's stocking shelves--

    well if someone has a ski mask on in the summer that's a far better argument he is there to rob than if its 20 below out

    now if its half a pair of pantyhose I say shoot the sumbitch!

    Nope bad analogy. See a car is for driving and a gun is for shooting. Big difference.

    You have no right to change the word rifle to gun--very poor attempt to minimize.
    You have no right to say I have no right.

    As soon as one of you open-carry rifle-toters walks in a store,
    watch the customers flee, while the store-owner must now go for his gun just in case.
    Another extreme gift from those bastardizing the 2A .
    Sure I do - see the 1st amendment.

    BTW, why does the store owner get to have a gun (not a rifle?), but not anyone else in your fantasy world?

    the word is firearm.... a rifle is a firearm, no matter how much you protest that fact.

    you are a threat to my rights... you are not a threat to my person, though.

    I have every right to say what I want about my rights..... in fact, such speech is afforded the strongest protection, as it it political speech.

    you do understand that it's really only very recently that open carry has been illegal ( in some states) right?... it was extremely common for most of our history as a county ( and before)..... so in very real terms, it's not me who is bastardizing the 2a... that would be your side.

    but yes, some people will freak out over open carrying a rifle or any firearm... if the folks whom are carrying are doing so legally and correctly and are not behaving in a threatening manner, the folks who flee are being irrational.... they should be vigilant, not panic stricken
    of course, that's too much to ask for .. emotions are much stronger than intellects in many people... rationally is not something you can expect from
    everyone.

    personally, I don't open carry a rifle... there's no reason for me too... it's impractical.
    I always, however, carry concealed handguns

    you specifically stated that the person carrying the gun does not intend to commit a crime.

    the gun in your scenario is of no more concern than a car in the parking lot.


    maybe you should have been more specific when you set up this exercise?
