I agree with Scorpion and others. While it may annoy those who are up to no good, it shouldn't bother an honest person. On the plus side, it does draw attention, interferres with night vision, may disorient & confuse, obscures your moves, lets you get a better look at who you're dealing with, and may be intimidating.
IMO, there's a very minor downside with a lot of upsides. FWIW.
The Second Amendment IS homeland defense!
