Guns are deadly serious things....openly carrying is even more serious...
YOU shouldn't have tried the joke routine in the first place.....he was polite and asked of he was offending anyone when he entered....nuff said....
Some things we just don't joke about....

Really, it takes spine to walk out in the public with a gun strapped on? I think it takes more of a spine to walk alone.
Because I'll be honest, I would trust a happy witty laughing person with a gun faster than I would trust someone completely devoid of humor.
I recall one guy who crowed and crowed about having 600 rounds of ammo in his trunk. After a while, it got old, so I asked him a) what good were they gonna do him in his trunk, b) how did he plan on getting to them if everyone knew that's what he was going after, and c) just how many people did he plan on shooting on any given day? Hell, it might have been a rough neighborhood, but it wasn't a war zone, for God's sakes!
He acted like his feelings were hurt or something.
Those guys are the ones that give all a bad name,
