What would be the political / media effect of carrying the same rifles in rifle cases?

Why cause such an alarm amongst the public?

Probably less of a "juicy" story for the local press.

But then they equally believe that other citizens should not be alarmed by unknown individuals openly displaying firearms or even carrying rifle in their hands.

Apparently these people are NOT supposed to believe that there are people out there wanting to hurt them and the sight of an unknown person with a firearm is not supposed to disturb them at all.
A very good summary!
