Meanwhile the husband calls the cops and gives an embellished account of their PERCEPTION and the cops show up and shoot a man who is completely unaware of wtf is going on?

People ought to know better than to wander around the store carrying one
Why? As long as he's not threatening anyone with it or pointing it at anyone or anything, it's legal in Ohio to open carry.
The people who should know better are the police. Of course, if he was pointing it at people and such then it adds a different spin to the story. But, even if he was pointing it at people, if the rest was true and he was just leaning on it like a cane with his back to the police and they shot him, that's still unacceptable whether he was threatening people with it or not.

Let's begin here: A "POG" is any Marine who is not an infantry Marine and a "GRUNT" is any Marine who holds or held the job of 03xx-infantry.
The Marine that called it in was more then likely a P.O.G and had no idea what a rifle looked like since boot would have been the only time the Marine had seen one.

A little surprised it took three weeks for this to surface on ATS. That's got me scratching my head.

It seems like we should ban the cops carrying guns. Here lately they seem to not care enough about human life.

First let me say that starting this very moment, no cop should be allowed to go out into the field without a bodycam and rubber bullets in his gun. Magazines with real bullets should be carried by all officers, but only used in situations where a suspect is confirmed to be armed with a gun.
