Okay then boil it down to a bit of logic. In a logical view, the majority of people would do maintenance inside, there really is no logical reason
(sorry but "i like the outside" doesn't exactly count) to be outside doing this. I don't sharpen my knives outside for all to see even though I love
nature and the outdoors, there is really no point, all my equipment is stored in the house to do so and I can go outside once im done.
A person who happens to glance from their house and sees a man with a weapon (of any kind for that matter) has the right to be concerned with the
safety of themselves and their loved ones, and logic (in my view) would not make me go over and investigate further what exactly he was doing with
that weapon (and personally knowing nothing about crossbows, would probably be a bit alarmed in what he was doing). Really not too hard to understand
from my point of view. The police did not arrest him, they gave back his weapon after they were shown wrong in taking it and the day resumed.
