What if you don't know it's a cop? What if you don't hear them? If someone behind you starts yelling, you can immediately know it's a cop?

Anyone points any kind of gun and me, and it's open fire at their face from my end.

I don't have to worry about that. I will never be carrying a firearm out in the open.

Also there is too may what if's in life to worry about that kind of stuff.

I mean, the cops could be thinking, what if that's a real gun. what if they caught someone who was about to go berserk. what if they just got done killing someone with that gun, what if I get shot with that gun. what if it penetrates my bulletproof vest. what if I don't get to see my family ever again...I can give you a ton of what if's, that go in the other direction.

We just have to take faith and have trust in our law enforcement and hope they are trained correctly on making the right decision.

There are plenty of people I know that used to go shooting as kids and they would carry real firearms. They never got shot. My friends and I used to walk to the park carrying our airsoft guns and never got shot. Cops showed up a couple times to check them out but we never got shot or shot at.

touché. then how about this, what if the kid didn't modify his gun to look real? what if he wasn't carrying it in the open, in a state that doesn't allow open carry of AK's? What if the kid did hear the cop? what if he did turn and raise the gun?
