Man Breaks No Law. Film At 11!

Man carries assault rifle to Obama protest -- and it's legal - CNN.com

People exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights to be sure that they continue to be recognized by government. (Some folks think 2nd Amendment Rights are at risk.) That drives some folks crazy. (More on this in a minute.)

I think the real reason that people are legally carrying guns - openly - in places like Arizona, is because of the bat-shit-crazy reaction that the Eastern press gyrates through when they do. The fact that the reporter and the anchor have to continually mention that "This is legal" says something about America I don't think is very good. People are amazed, and incensed when others exercise their rights. I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend your right to say it. (That is called Free Speech, folks, and if you don't like it, move to China or Cuba or anywhere people disappear for expressing their dislike of government.)

"It was jarring to see an AR-15 in the open" The reporter had never seen one before. (Funny, but I bet he reported on the Assault Weapons Ban, without knowing the first thing about so-called semi-automatic assault weapons.) Not that we really expect solid news reporting from the 24-hr cable news organizations. See the CNN video at this link.

Anyway, the interview with the guy in the video, can be found at YouTube!
