Y'all must not know Texas, particularly rural Texas, very well. In Texas, you are permitted to openly carry a long arm, loaded or not, anywhere firearms are not prohibited. You do not need permission, or have any particular reason, whatsoever. Why this guy was carrying a rifle is irrelevant - the fact is that it is legal in Texas to carry a rifle. This guy was stopped and arrested, as one of the video clearly shows the police officer confirming, simply for possessing a rifle - because one or other citizens who didn't know or didn't care that it was legal complained.
