Don't get me wrong, I love this series, but lately when I rewatch an episode I'm often struck by the arrogance (and seeming carelessness) of the SG teams just marching in on a village, or town, or even small city, and just assuming that either no one will care that they're heavily armed... or that everyone will be too scared to do anything about it.
My question is--did the SG Teams ever get called on this? Did the local guardsmen or police or security forces ever stand their ground and simply demand that these strangers either leave or surrender their weapons, and have it stick?
Because I know Jack O'Neill outright refused such orders more than once, and the people would back down, but I can't recall a situation where this very rational and normal concern was enforced.
I guess I feel like a team sent to scout out a strange culture should be a little more discreet about such things, rather than do the equivalent of rolling into a medium-sized Ohio town while waving shotguns and juggling hand grenades.
As a sidebar that I suppose would affect my feelings on this--Were guns treated so casually in, say, 17th century England or Europe? Would a town have been unconcerned if a group of heavily-armed strangers just rolled in and dared anyone to object to their weapons?
