Response to shadowrider (Reply #5)

12. In all fairness

people will react to perceived threats based on what seems normal or typical. People expect to see armed cops, unless you happen to be in the UK or South Korea.
Anyone open carrying in town even in places like Wyoming and Vermont stand out.
When I was in high school, rifle club day was (IIRC) on Thursday. Kids putting .22 rifles in their lockers on that day would not stand out and be normal. If some parent showed up with a pistol at the same time, my NRA life member principal would probably call the cops while some teachers would be asking WTF?
