I voted nervous/scared, but this more accurately represents how I'd feel as well.


Quoting GLWerth:

On a police officer, I'd be fine.

On a rent-a-cop, I'd be a little nervous.

On a random person, I'd be very uncomfortable. Too many people lack impulse control.

 Depends on whether or not he's a kook. 

I'd prefer concealed if people feel they need to carry a weapon.

What about all the people most encounter daily, with a gun that you do NOT see?  If you encounter me anywhere, you have just seen someone with a gun.

I would be nervous.

I understand people have gun rights.

I also know that people are nuts.

 I have to laugh, so many people have concealed carry permits, that i bet most of you stand next to armed people every day. If someone was just shopping, why would you be scared, if they are brandishing it like they are going to use it, that's another story.

How do you know?

You cannot tell if someone is a "kook" just by looking at them.

I know very stable people who, from a first glance, you'd think were crazy and I know very traditional, "normal" looking people who I'd never turn my back on.

The point being, you can't tell from looking at them.
