In brief: Stare Back
It is wonderful that you have no qualms about breast feeding in public.
Those who stare usually have issues with it. Staring back can be useful. Decide what you are comfortable doing, and really no one else's opinion really matters.

Or smile back at them and be extremely upbeat and positive! You are doing one of the best things possible for your baby and you should be happy about it. One breastfeeding story: Mom is nursing her baby son, another person says, "Why don't you do that in bathroom?" Mom replies, " Why? I'm feeding him, not peeing on him!"

Love it! Well said.

You could slap them, but i suppose that might get you in trouble.
How about coldly staring back, and saying "excuse me?".
