    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.

I have been seeing a neighbor that OCs in sweat pants and sports shorts (no shirt or shoes) with a clip on holster that hangs down pulling his pants and shorts. This guy stands in front of his house all day smoking cigarettes and pacing back and forth. He's always looking around making eye contact with vehicles and walkers by. I want to tell him how ridiculous he looks and if he's going to OC, he should put some clothes on that support his firearm. However I never confront OCers or anyone carrying even in jest. Maybe an anonymous letter. Last week a friend that lives on that told me there was some sort of commotion regarding a man with a gun that had Bellevue police investigating. I have open carried in front of Bellevue Police with no problem; they support it in fact. I hope this goof come to his senses and stops embarrassing himself and other OCers.
    Yeah, the guy sounds like an huge idiot and IMO should be avoid if at all possible. Kinda sounds like he'll be the solution to his own problem soon enough. Stay safe.

    Not the most rational of behavior but then it takes all kinds.
    Everyone's entitled to do what they do, so long as it doesn't jeopardize or harm others. (And this guy on the porch hasn't gone that far.)

    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.
