Drouin told the station that he hoped people would approach them to talk rather than calling police.
"What they really should do is observe the person to determine if the person is aggressive," Drouin said. "We're not doing anything threatening to anyone."
Drouin isn't just taking his message to the streets of Portland. He also has a YouTube channel under the name "Marked Guardian" where he explains his thoughts about gun rights.
The page includes nearly 100 videos on YouTube that show him walking around in public places strapped with a loaded assault rifle on his back and a pistol on his side, all in plain view, according to KGW-TV.
In his bio page, he explains: "I trying (sic) to normalize firearms in public and in my opinion, I believe that carry (sic) a rifle daily will bring a strong culture in my area."
