It is more beneficial to demand that the police follow the law than to establish precedent that they can avoid litigation by handing over wrongfully seized property with a pat on the back and a 'sorry for the trouble'.
open carry in most cases is not a deterrent.
as to how effective that person could bring the weapon into a fight- have you ever tried doing a fast mag change with a BB AR? one where the weapon was slung and not in your hands and ready to go?
the standards for shooting someone is if they are a threat within 25ft. Do you think you could beat someone rushing you at that distance?
I get the 2A angle, but I think there was an big lack of good judgement in this particular incident. It doesnt help expand gun rights by doing that. Sheeple are terrified of Airsoft guns already....
