UllerellU: If there is any country in the world where I would not think of doing something like that, it's in the USA ... The level of paranoia is such that I would not even dare to shoot with a large telephoto lens, it's not like the police going to shoot you (which is very likely) is that you may be shootat for a "real patriot" guy, thinking that stops a terrorist threat, delirious ....
By the way, if a mobile phone can be mistaken with a weapon, the next tele-objective and near an airport with what?!?!

Karroly, leave it to the leftists to argue against a "point" NO ONE MADE. Why do you "need" a computer? Why isn't a quill pen and parchment paper good enough for you to spout your drivel?

BeaverTerror, your proclamation that I am "wrong" is in itself, wrong. You're essentially saying that guns (which are INANIMATE objects) cause crime. They no more cause crime than the sugary drinks you spoke about cause obesity. Approximation does not equal causation. The MISUSE of guns "contributes" to crime and the MISUSE of high sugar drinks contribute to obesity. Your claim that American gun rights will evaporate is patently false because it is that very right that will ensure that doesn't happen. The British learned that lesson the hard way and we "fat" Americans are happy to teach it again. And we don't care what you think we "need" regarding "high magazine capacity semi automatic rifles on the civilian market." If only your government has such weapons what, exactly, do you think keeps them from turning them on you?

@TomHudsonVisual, you're funny. The FIRST thing ILLEGAL immigrants did was VIOLATE US LAW yet you have the gall to claim they are "less likely to engage in crime." Who can take you serious?

Astro Landscapes: It would really stink to be killed by some citizen hero or rent-a-cop over what amounts to less than 5 minutes of Photoshop cloning. Seriously, put a blaze orange plug on that thing, idiots.

@PLShutterbug, what a load of crap! Police only protect "white people?" Well, by all means, if you're not white don't ever call them in your moment of need. Maybe call Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson instead. I'm sure they'll "protect" you.

dlb41: With a decline in morality comes an increase in government repression.

@TomHudsonVisual, nah, you can still repress them by calling them "Uncle Tom" if they stray off the Democrat plantation or aborting them before they're born, or perpetually make them dependent on government, or beat them up while you were a black mask in the name of "anti-fascism" without worrying about being held accountable.

teiki arii: You already have to be mad to wear a gun, then to publicly show your weapon... even a fake one...

dccdp, the "purpose" of a gun is to fire a projectile when YOU pull the trigger. I'm no more likely to shoot you than I am to run you down with a car.

Denton Taylor: In case our non-USA readers are confused, it is fine to carry an actual functioning loaded gun, openly, in large parts of the USA. However, carrying a fake gun is a problem. Get it?

James Stirling, "the rest of the developed world?" Pretending evil doesn't exist in your "developed world" doesn't make it disappear. This "brave citizen" simply recognizes reality.

G Master: In today’s trigger happy society I can’t blame them folks with little ones calling the cops. The photographer should have known better and place a big sign stating this isn’t a real gun and it’s only a photo shoot prop.

Karroly, good for you. But for those of us who do carry, we aren't paranoid, we're simply prepared. I don't plan on having a car accident but I wear a seatbelt. I don't plan on having a house fire but I have a fire extinguisher. I don't plan on needing to defend myself with a firearm but I recognize there is evil in this world and likewise I'll be prepared...it's better to have and need not than to need and have not.

racin06: Only in CA can you be arrested for not painting your replica rifle bright colors. Seriously, it's so absurd that it's very laughable.

hmayle, Cops gunning down a 10 year old? That's your scenario? I don't know where you live but the cops where I am are pretty smart. Maybe the problem where you live is idiot neighbors who are afraid of their own shadow and would call the cops in a panic claiming "there's an active shooter with an ASSAULT RIFLE!" if they saw a 10 year old with a BB gun. I suspect you're that type...

Karroly, if you wear a seatbelt when driving does that mean you're paranoid?

BeaverTerror, the fact that the murder rate was EVER higher in London v. NYC flies in the face of the argument that guns are the problem. We're talking cities with populations in the millions. The "idiots", as you like to say, are the ones who claim guns are the problem. In a country with several hundred million guns in circulation, if guns were the problem you'd know it. Kind of like Bloomberg blaming sodas for obesity and diabetes...THAT kind of idiot.

Right, the police should wait until they're gunned down to verify the gun is real.

(unknown member): From Europe. .. there are just too many weapons in thr US and people tend to see weapons in the hands of anyone (and photographers as well!).

Whereas in Europe, almost no one has a gun... and so cops are not afraid about tripods..
So no one want to get a gun to protect himself. .. because others do not have guns either...

Regards

Karroly, you have my humble apologies for being snippy. I have dealt with one insufferable know-it-all after another on here and you didn't earn that type of response. Having said that, I reject your characterization of ours as a "cowboy" culture. We are independent, liberty-minded individuals exemplified by your country gifting the Statue of Liberty to us. In a country of 320 million people and at least as many guns I would submit that if guns were truly THE problem we'd see much more evidence of that. I recognize that evil exists whether it has access to guns, knives or blunt objects. You don't make law-abiding people safer by denying them the means to defend themselves. Anyway, I again apologize for taking a harsh stand but I value my liberty and wish more people would do the same. Best wishes...

Karroly, you are completely and utterly ignorant on "war weapons" and their caliber. 1. I did not equate America's industrial might to individuals loaning weapons to our allies. Two separate facts, both true. 2. AR-15 (civilian version of the military M-16 and M-4 are the same caliber, 5.56mm NATO round). 3. M1A (civilian version of the military M-14 are the same caliber, 7.62mm NATO round). 4. Please educate yourself before opining.
