What would you think. This was in a JC penny in a mall. Holy crap I think I would call security, that would freak me out!

That would really depend on his expression. If he seemed relaxed/organized I would think off-duty soldier. If he seemed nervous/upset I'd be ducking for cover.

Is it a prop? Is he trying to make a statment?  That would be my first thoughts these days.  But I would also be cautious and be on alert.

 I'm a little confused why security hadn't told him to leave.....they have the right to tell anyone to leave.

I wouldn't even give it a second thought. Your avy pic, however, is the creepiest thing I've seen in a while. I'm sorry if it's, like, you or something.

While as relaxed as he looks I probably would not be afraid. I would think he is a jerk because people have heightened fear right now after all that has happened and he doesn't care about his fellow man's fears or concerns. I read the article, he is doing it to get a reaction, which means he is a jerk in my opinion. Since he admits he is only doing it for the reaction, he is just doing it to be  a jerk.

I would probably leave. I don't care what the reason is that would make me uncomfortable

meh, its not to me. and considering YES the law is no open carry id assume he had special permission to do so, was licensed to have it visible, was not a threat, etc. all those things would factor in for me. id do a mental rundown and assessment and go about my happy way. and where im from in tx, the high schoolers have gun racks in thier trucks and usually have deer rifles or shotguns in them. when i was in high school i wore a pair of cargo bermuda shorts one day that i had worn the previous weekend when i was out shooting and forgot to take out my shells, went to school and reached in my pocket for something and pulled out two 4-10 shotgun shells, teacher laughed and said "well i geuss we all know what heather shoots now". we are a small town and that just wouldnt personally phase me. it might others but to me its no big deal.


Quoting Anonymous:

an assault rifle is not a big deal? i live in tx too and have never seen an assault rifle not to mention that the law is CONCEALED not out in the open!
