Agreed. There is a huge difference on what "causes" and what "warrants" alarm. A person might be alarmed by seeing a pocketknife clipped on the pants pocket of an average citizen, but that knife does not necessarily WARRANT alarm, when viewed by a "reasonable person." This is the technicality that us OCers rely on, being that a holstered firearm viewed by a reasonable person is not a situation that WARRANTS alarm for the safety of others, although in certain situations it very well may CAUSE specific people to be alarmed. You bring up a good point for those who may be new to the forum, and even for those of us who have been around a while, to be reminded. Thanks.
