I think these people while exercising their right to open carry just did more harm to their right than good. You also have to show some common sense, they might have gone there just to see if they could push some buttons & get themselves arrested. But in any event there are plenty of places where you cannot carry & in the end they might have added to that list. If you were to get a 100 people or more there with weapons it would be a S.S. nightmare simply because you can`t tell the one trying to make his or her point from the wacko wanting to kill the president or simply open fire & kill as many as they can. I believe in the right to carry but you also have to think.
These people may have the right to open carry but IMHO they all should have been painted with a red laser to let them know they move the wrong way they're dead. Same with Bush. That Iraqi *censored* should have been double tapped before the first shoe left his hand. Like them or not, they are our presidents. They got there by a majority vote, not a coup. I don't want to see another presidential assassination in my lifetime. One was enough.
Not contradictory at all. Do I agree with Obama's policies? No, I haven't agreed with Presidential policies since Reagan. My recourse is to vote against them. If a president loses an election and attempts to grab power then we have a problem that requires an armed citizenry to take back the country.
