I can't say I'd disagree...

I don't know that I'd be given the opportunity to do if it happened here. Lot's of folks here carry guns for self defense. If I was off duty I'd definitely want to keep my family safe. But I'm pretty sure this guy would immediately see the business end of my Glock as I announced who I was and what he needed to do to avoid a trip to the morgue.
I can't say for certain but around here I just can't see an armed citizen being charged if he ventilated such a fool.
An interview with the DA would probably sound something like this:
"Sir, what did you see?"
"I saw a man in body armor carrying a rifle and lots of magazines."
"Did he say anything?"
"Was the rifle in his hands or was he wearing it on a sling?"
"It wasn't in his hands, it was on a sling."
"So, what happened?"
"I saw him look at me."
"What happened then?"
"I shot him in the face."
"Why did you do that?"
"Because he was wearing body armor, carrying a rifle and lots of magazines."
"Did you think he was going to shoot you or anyone else?"
"Was I supposed to wait until he did?"
"Uh... We have no more questions."
Really, a sane person doesn't go shopping dressed like that. People that are up to no good do that kind of thing. And if you aren't up to no good people are going to look at you like you are up to no good. Don't be that guy. I carry a concealed Glock everywhere I go. Nobody needs to know it's there until it's time to use it.
