    Actually, despite what people may think is a troll question, this is a good question. I, too, have seen people wear ski masks during the extreme cold, however, I've never seen someone OC while wearing one. I would suggest that if the environment called for it (such as the extreme cold, like you said) then it wouldn't warrant alarm. However, you should take it off upon entering businesses.

    I can't answer as to what the police, prosecutor, judge or jury would say though, just how I would personally feel.

    Again, I can't say I wouldn't feel a bit alarmed if I were out jogging at night, and I encountered a sole man, whom is armed, and sporting a ski mask, especially in the areas I go jogging at.

    I don't know really. Good question.

    Serious like a heart attack?

    Or like the fact you've done nothing but post troll posts here?

    Hmm. Don't know.But I am smart enough to know I'm not going to volunteer to be the test case...

    Also: Why would you want to? If it's cold enough outside to be wearing a ski mask, isn't it cold enough to be wearing a winter over-coat (which would cover the weapon, anyway)???

    Why not just conceal it if you're going to put something over your face?

    Instead of a ski mask would you consider a Hello Kitty scarf?

    U8Dust is a long time troll, most all of his posts are absurd and asinine. I personally think he should be banned, as his intention appears to be making us look bad.

    Just my 2-cents.

    I'm voting for the ban too. These far out senerios and no real contribution isn't enough?

    If it is banned it will just make a new account. Might as well leave it that account so we know its a joke to begin with.

    I can't remember where I read it, but there was a guy wearing a hoodie who went to the bank. I don't think he had a handgun, but I thinkthe judge sent him to jail.

    He may be a troll but at least he's funny and thinks outside the box with questions that really make ya think. I dont think if I saw someone outside with a "holstered gun" anda ski mask "when it's cold", I would think twice about it. As we all know, or dont know of is criminals that walk around open carry in a holster. Gun or not anyone with a ski mask should or any mask should have to reveal their face for security camera upon entering business's. I would be leary if someone was inside a store and still had the mask on.

    That would work fine...for people who are not bank robbers and actually obey laws.

    For people with criminal intent they will just ignore the rule against wearing a mask, just like they are ignoring the law against robbing banks and carrying a gun while committing felonies.

    As for trolls,

    Exactly, so you would pretty well know to be ready to draw if someone didnt remove their mask.

    He may be a troll, but he asks some pretty good eye opening questions, even if he's not serious.

    We always get suckered into the 'warrants alarm'

    (1) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry, exhibit, display, or draw any firearm, dagger, sword, knife or other cutting or stabbing instrument, club, or any other weapon apparently capable of producing bodily harm, in a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that warrants alarm for the safety of other persons.

    In the summer with a ski mask on is not the correct time and place. (This goes back to Sesame Street, it doesn't belong)

    In the winter, it would be under a circumstance that would be in context.

    HOWEVER, neither warrant alarm for the SAFETY of other persons!

    However, depending on the circumstance and time and place AND INTENT it may intimidate another.

    When we continue to take 'warrants alarm' out of context it is similar to my favorite quote of all time taken out of context:

    "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." (regular quote)

    Actual quote:

    "I did not have sexual relations with that woman.............on Wednesday's before 2pm, when there is a full moon." <sarcasm>
