had a lady call in a road rage because an old man pointed a rifle at her from his car window while driving. we found the old man and all he had in his car was an old steering wheel lock "the club." she swore up and down it was a gun because she knows what a rifle looks like. people call in kids walking around with guns all the time in our county. they are usually gone before we get there and turn out to be kids walking from one friends house to the other to play airsoft. people don't know that you can shoot gun in our county as long as it is in a safe manor. missouri has always been an open carry state but since no one does it, when someone does carry out in the open, people freak out.

This.

If a kid wants a katana umbrella, lightsaber umbrella, or what have you it's all-****ing-right as long as it doesn't look like a high powered rifle. They should also not be pissed because the idiot didn't call about a sword but about a high powered rifle.

Air Power Vector, for the man that has climbed to the peak and wants to look down on the beaten and defeated opponents left in his wake.

The kid wasn't supposed to have it in the dorms to begin with and my roommate missed an important quiz that he was not allowed to retake since classes weren't canceled. I missed a lab myself and had to make that up on Friday, which I normally didn't have classes on.

If you see something, say something.

Just speak your report into the nearest telescreen.

A Paintball Gun incident with Rcmp Police in British Columbia. Somebody called the police when they saw a male with a gun enter his truck, and you can see the outcome of casual handling of your gear in public.

I believe that to prevent such misunderstandings, folks should not have their guns, exposed, in the passenger cabin of a vehicle. Failing that, folks shouldn't be handling their guns in the car. Personally, I keep mine in a bag and in the trunk.

You Canucks are a little crazy about your guns laws, no offense.

It's good they had their guns drawn though since they weren't sure at the beginning if it was real or not. Overall it was handled well, but they still blew it way out of proportion when it didn't need to be.

My brother is a state trooper so I'll have to show him this and see what he thinks.
I don't know- I think it highly depends on the when and where such an incident might take place. For example, in an area that recently had a shooting or, an area where the majority are fearful of guns. Often, it's the fear of a potential incident that drives folks to call the police.

Lots of time and money wasted for nothing.
Really? Look up 'open carry' on YouTube: 198,000 video results, the vast majority of which are the result of someone openly carrying a gun (i.e. a slung rifle, or a openly holstered pistol) in places where they have the right to, someone getting scared and calling the cops, cops often improperly handling the situation (compromising the rights of the individual in order to allay the fears of the caller).

Oh the squirrelly woman with the red rolling suitcase, who was most likely the woman who called it in?

Nope didn't see her.

As for the kid at the college. That's just your professors being dicks. Whether he was supposed to have it or not, its not his fault your teachers should've had better judgement.

Reading the title I was expecting to read something about some perv diddling himself in public.
