Are open carry laws making the U.S. safer or scarier?

Open carry advocates are flocking to restaurants, stores and walking our streets with assault rifles and sidearms. These people claim to be exercising the 2nd Amendment right to flaunt their fire power. However, children have shot and killed other children and even their parents. Raging individuals are killing innocent neighbors who play their music too loud or shooting drivers during road rage incidents. Is it socially acceptable to have assault rifles in public places. If yes, please explain your argument.

    A 5 year average shows annually 17,499 children and teens die due to guns. We now have 44 states with open carry laws and yet, on average, 32,514 people are killed by guns. I don't see where all these guns are acting as much of a deterrent.
