Most of the time I’ll let ignorant people remain ignorant, not because I want to appear as a LEO, but rather because sometimes I don’t want to get into a 2A debate with a Safeway clerk on a Saturday night after moving furniture all day.
I have heard someone say "he must be a cop" once in the 5+ months I have been OCing, and since it was just a lazy grocery shopping trip I stopped and chatted him up for a bit.
If you have time/care, talk to them. If you are in an indifferent mood or on a schedule, ignore it.
