Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

I have several AR15's,never once have I thought it would be a good idea to open carry one into an environment that some psycho with a rifle had opened fire on innocent People in the past,and even tho I might believe in the 2nd amendment,I would err on the side of caution and call in this idiot

With all due respect you need to look a little harder for a hero.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

That doofus is not doing anything constructive for anyone........or anybody's agenda (except maybe the Brady Bunch's)

If his intentions were honest, the public is nowhere close to being ready for that kind of visual.

It's not the destination, it's the journey.
I think the key element here is the 911 calls. People had a reason to be alarmed.
" Gee, I wonder why that guys is carrying a rifle inside this mall, Oh well, maybe he is just trying to buy some shoes that match".
People tend to question strange behavior, after all everyone has the right to be safe.
Unfortunately, incidents like what happened in Tucson will summons all the nut-balls across the country. They all want attention and they don’t care how they get it.

I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
Also I guess you think that by me who doesn't have a CPL/CHL/CCH I shouldn't carry for self defense? I know my rights/laws, and am very good with all firearms. But by age I can't CC, so OC is the next best thing for me. When I have my CPL yes I will CC and I will OC. Just depends on what I'm doing/wearing that day. Plus the laws are better when I OC with a CPL in my state.
Am I looking for "attention" by OCing? heck no. I'm with in my rights as a Law Abiding Citizen, and want to come home to my family at the end of the day safe. Oh and you are more than welcome to flame me for this but I think OC has more of an advantage when it comes to speed. I can say that I will out draw you 100% of the time.
I did this test. My father a CPL holder and I at the command of a third were to draw our guns and shoot at our targets. While reviewing the video, I not only out drew him But had a good shot off, before he was even up in the shooting position. So our opinion are just that, take them as you will
As for the AR-15 he has his rights, is it a good idea? probably not, it should have been loaded. Because it was not, I know he was looking for attention. If I could know if i was going to be in a bad situation, I would want my shotgun, and a handgun as back up. It is like the quote
"I see you have your handgun, are you boys expecting trouble?"
"No Mrs., if I was I would have brought my shotgun."
