Do you think that a citizen who open carries ( in open carry states) a firearm creates panic ?

Kansas has open carry, have seen 0 cases of panic or even concern caused by open carry. Interesting to check out what others have, although some may be embarrassed if you stare too long... :)

I carry (along with many other folks - men and women). I observe no evidence of panic or concern at all.

Panic may be an exaggeration but I would certainly be uncomfortable around people that displayed guns in schools, churches, restaurants and similar family-oriented places. I don't like living in fear of shootings or other acts of violence, and carrying guns makes it seem like we are anticipating trouble.

I would look at it the same way I look at guys who drive around in sports cars. They probably have a personality defect of some kind and are overcompensating for some feeling of inadequacy.

Well I open carry daily. I am a parent who refuses to be a victim.

We don't normally see people carrying guns around here. It would be completely out of place. I don't know if I would panic, but it would make me nervous enough to keep an eye on the person and surreptitiously move away. There are a lot of crazy people in this world.
