    Yes.

    And the reason behind that "yes" answer is simply because I don't know if that person is carrying legally; I don't know whether they are in the store to fire that gun at one or more people, or not.

    That would depend on where I am, if I actually SEE a badge, etc. etc.

    You can play the "what if" game with all kinds of scenarios, but when it comes right down to it, I will do as my initial post stated.

    You are giving me the impression that you believe I am against people legally carrying concealed weapons. Well, I am not. If people feel the need to carry for personal protection, safety, whatever reason - if they are carrying legally, that is their right. And in this day and age, with the increase in gun violence, I also have the right to do what I feel I must do to keep safe and that means to say something when I see something. My suggestion would be that if someone is carrying a legally concealed weapon and doesn't want to be reported, they should make sure it stays concealed.

    Police investigate calls of "armed individual" quite frequently around here.

    What increase?

    The rate seems to be way *down* over time. It's about 1/3 what it was in the 1980s.

    Okay, point made and I'll take your word for it, because I am not going to go looking for statistics.

    So I will re-phrase - "with the increase *I* am seeing in gun violence..."

    Thank you for pointing it out.

    So locally a guy was in Walmart open carrying both a gun and a vest full of ammunition. Someone called the police and it turns out that he didn’t have a permit and was a felon. No clue what his intent was but it’s another case where it pays to say something and not just assume that he has a permit and is a good guy.

    I think that's a good thing. We all have to be situationally aware, I think.
