johnelmore - May I ask what state you're in?
You seem to want to escalate the legal and common open carrying that my state does with some kind of "confronting people with a gun". Your last post takes it even to the extreme and compares LEOs vs non LEOs shooting people.
I think you're kind of molehilling here sir. Nobody in the thread suggested shooting or even confronting anyone with a gun. You seem focused on the "Oh I see a gun" issue. That may be an issue in your area, or maybe it's just specific to your personal way of viewing things. It's not in my state, nor in my personal way of viewing things.
