Open carry

My husband and I were recently at the Meridian Winco. As we were shopping, there was a young man walking with his wife and child. He was carrying a gun in full view on his hip. It almost took my breath away. I realize there are a lot of Idahoans that are worried someone will take their weapons away and that guns don’t kill. It is people that kill. People that don’t follow that thought have rights also, and how do we know this person will not go crazy and start firing? So, my question is what makes it OK for someone to carry a weapon in a store full of people? Is it just because you can? Seriously, clue up. Are you so afraid that you need to be packing a weapon everywhere? This was really frightening to me. I guess that was your goal.
