    Must have been one of those evil black assault umbrellas.

    Looks more like a samurai sword to me.

    Well, the best part is that there should be nothing they can charge the umbrella toter with and the morons cost themselves many thousands in lost business because they did not take the time to discern what they were up against. If people are so afraid that they cannot discern a weapon from an umbrella then I guess they deserve what they get.

    This is the unintended consequence of the paranoid "if you see smething say something" campaign. I wonder, should the people who called in the fake "gun scare" be charged with making a false report to police? Last, as for the cost to the mall merchants, my guess is that it cost the taxpayers far more than the merchants lost in revenue.

    I think there really is a covert umbrella gun that is chambered for .410 slugs.

    Rifle? They are stupid. It is CLEARLY a sword.

    It was black...the evil color dreaded and feared by many Yankees.

    Had it been green, or blue, or white or even pink, no one would have given it a second glance.
