When my wife was in having our son at the hospital, it was taking a long time, so they gave us a private room. Probably stupid of me, but I was bored, it was the 80's, no cell phones to occupy my unused time, so I broke down my 44 and cleaned it. It was totally innocent and something I did often, because I went shooting twice a week. It was in pieces all over the end of the bed. Doesn't a nurse walk in, freaks out and runs back out, ready to bring down the powers that be on me. Fortunately, she met my wife's doctor at the nurses station who told her to calm down, that I was military and probably bored.
Some situations that may appear to be a crisis in people's little minds are sometimes just natural stuff you do when you're bored. People really have to calm down and give their head a shake.
Cheers - Dave

Mr. Spock, Firstly, LLAP, secondly, when I read that I was mesmerized up until the "wearing an orange "military like" vest..." Military garb usually works better if'n the 'foe-de-jours' has troubles trying to spot You, hence the invent of 'camouflage' ..
Town Crier: "THE RED COATS ARE COMING! YE ALL TAKE HEED, THE RED COATS ARE COMING..."
Town Skeptic: "How does Thee know the enemy nears?"
Town Crier: "What are You kidding Me? What part of Red Coats don't You get..? One can see these guys a mile afar, if I get out of this revolution, I'm going to manufacture clothing to make it easier to blend into the surroundings, I'll call it "camouflage"
Town Skeptic: "Yeah right, I'm going to start a newspaper and take everything folks say and determine if it is indeed a "fact". In a few hundred years, folks will be able to sit in their homes and whilst not cleaning their firearms, they'll be able to communicate to folks from all over this Earth, We will finally be able to determine where this Earth ends, the corners of it, see? The first 2 articles sell themselves, all We have to do it is print it..."
Deer Hunter? Duck Hunter? This will probably end up being a "City Worker" and He is wearing a "Safety Vest" The person reporting this took the Pole saw or some other tool and wanted to alert the masses.
Just for snips and giggles, check out 'images' on any Ebola story and see if You can find the "color" that is POPPING OUT in a majority of the pics. I have a theory but will not divulge that until I see if the SF Giants win this years World Series..
