A hypothetical question for someone that packs a gun (concealed carry) [View all]

You are in a large shopping mall and see someone enter carrying an AR-15 or similar weapon. What do you do? Do you ignore it and consider it normal behavior? Do you approach the person and try to discern their intentions? Do you run for the hills? Do you open fire? Do you notify authorities? Do you attempt to confine the person? Would you consider the person a threat? Just curious because of that nut that entered JC Pennys with an AR-15 just to intimidate people.....Just because he could, was his reason I think....When do you decide it is time to defend your life and others around you. Before he opens up on people or after he does so?
