I'll do my best to not make this sound like a gun hater vs. a gun lover. If it does come across as condescending, you should know my stance on guns in America is that the controls are laughable. But I don't think we need another thread. I just would like to be open.
My question is simple. Why do regular citizens need the types of weapons seen in the above images. Is there a valid reason apart from range shooting. If it's hunting, what do they hunt with them? Nazis?

LOL!!!! I would not have been worried at all. Were the rifles hung over their shoulder? If so then I wouldn't have given a single ****. If they were low and ready I would have cared.
I open carry my pistol daily from spring to fall. I only had an issue once some guy from New Jersey called the police while I was waiting at a place for my food to be made. The police officer came out said hello to me and told me to have a good day. It's illegal for the police to ask you directly why you are openly carrying. Atleast into state. And they then proceeded to school the guy on being in the wrong for calling 911.

The point is that the public don't KNOW those people that are walking around with massive guns and don't trust them. It's intimidating, especially for people who aren't using to seeing them.
Also, while they're busy wandering around showboating what's to stop somebody like Adam Lanza from running up and taking their weapon?

Last warning. Stick to the topic.
