This fella is wasting public resources (LEO time). That is a "no-no" in my book.
Example: During the first couple of weeks of the Highpark Fire here in Colorado, an idiot needed SAR and LEO and Firefighter support for an "almost drowning" at a nearby lake. He did not have rudimentary safety gear, and he is being run up the flag pole because those valuable resources were pulled off of fire duty to save his sorry ass.
They should have let the moron drown.

"A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon the world" Albert Camus
A person who opts for certain clothing and demeanor on his own porch is free to do so. Just as those around him are free to pay attention to the totality of factors/circumstances surrounding those nearby. As with simple carrying, going about one's business doesn't corroborate any mere fear of having seen the gun. Likewise, merely having a certain clothing selection or chain-smoking on one's porch doesn't itself suggest much. But combine it all with a glowering look and giving passersby the "stink eye," well then it's not surprising that folks around him are raising eyebrows and keeping an eye open.
