You see, the problem here is perception
This gentleman knows he has no intention of suddenly killing people with his exercising of his right.
How does he get that same message across to other people who feel threatened by what he is doing? - because the reality is that in less than one second he could kill.
Death is never welcome, nor is his immature actions, which by the way, actually has a negative impact on what he thinks he is promoting and just gives gun-grabbers more of a reason to label him as the "see - this is the mentality of gun-rights advocates"
You see, it's all about perception

I sincerely hope you're not lumping me in with those types. Not that I see them doing anything wrong, I just don't have a small....I don't need to flex my ego by openly carrying a rifle. Back home in Texas, I did enjoy wearing my pistol on my hip. Usually was a good conversation piece.
I get what you're saying with an airport. Still a sensitive subject, I guess. I just don't panic if I see someone carrying a firearm.
