He caught a full acount of their visit on a chest-mounted GoPro video camera.
A sergeant of the Little Elm Police Department said there is no way you can carry a weapon openly without alarming someone. He guaranteed Mr. Pizgatti he would arrest him if he did so.
He also said he would arrest him for jaywalking or running a stop sign - anything that is illegal
He said, Little Elm is one of the safest cities with a population of more than 25,000 in the state.
"We didn't do that with everyone walking around showing their guns."
Mr. Pizgatti took his stroll later, unmolested by the Little Elm Police, who did not arrest him.
