      is MINOR?

      With a gun involved?

        "I saw a man with a gun!!!!"

        Like so what.

        People flip out over firearms.

          we non-gun owners are so fearful and irrational.  Because everyone with a firearm has my best interest at heart and I should just trust in them and not call the cops when I see them in the street with a firearm.  

          i embrace the school of thought that if you see something, say something .  You firearms owners are carrying lethal weapons for your own purposes, which may or may not be legal.  As a citizen, how am I supposed to decide?  Let the armed police decide your legality to carry your firearm.

            people are innocent of a crime until they have been proven guilty in a court of law. If it is legal to openly carry a firearm in your state, and you see someone openly carrying a firearm, shouldn't your default position be one of innocence? That what they are doing is legal and therefore of no concern to you or anyone else?

            I will guess that is the case unless they are engaging in an activity that you don't approve of, then the authorities must be called because someone isn't breaking the law!
