Several protestors bring weapons to a convention center in Arizona where the president was giving a speech.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – Several anti-Obama protestors brought guns to an Arizona convention center where he was giving a speech early this week. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the individuals stated they were enforcing their rights to bear arms in accordance with the state’s laws that permit those who are legally allowed to possess a fireman to carry it in open view in public.
Despite the individuals not being in violation of state laws, many view their actions as potentially disastrous. Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, is quoted by the AP as stating, “To me, this is craziness… When you bring a loaded gun, particularly a loaded assault rifle, to any political event, but particularly to one where the president is appearing, you’re just making the situation dangerous for everyone.”
