You want proof that people seeing guns on people's hips routinely makes it normal?
Arizona. How many people make "Man w/ a gun!" calls there because someone has a holstered gun? It's normal because it is often done.
It the same way out in western portions of Nebraska. If you have a holstered gun, people are not calling the cops.....
