“In LA, if this guy were walking down the street like that, they send out a tactical swat team, seal off a 10 block perimeter...”

In LA they have reason to respond this way. I don’t like the fact that some cops do not like citizens carrying protection, but they are dealing with an armed unknown when they approach you. The gentleman in the video had a calm demeanor and explained what he was doing. The idiot in the striped shirt could have gotten someone shot.

If you want to educate cops about your rights, visit the local police station. Don’t beg for a confrontation on the streets. The same refrain the officers show to you could land them dead tomorrow.

Armed people should always be respectful and not let their friends dare the other armed person show restraint.

Not hardly. He didn't do anything to provoke a shooting for any reason. Being stupid isn't illegal. Even in LA they would have just broke his knee caps n' choked him off for good measure, then arrested him for running an over sized mouth without a muffler.
