Gun Freedom and Bearing Weapons Outside Obama Protests

Hosted by

At President Obama's town hall in New Hampshire last week, a man was arrested for carrying an unlicensed, loaded gun, while another man with a handgun strapped to his leg was within the law, as was a man who carried a semi-automatic assault rifle outside the President's rally yesterday in Phoenix. He told reporters he was armed, "Because I can do it. In Arizona, I still have some freedoms." While Associated Press reports that a dozen protesters also were armed, Phoenix police say no crimes were committed and no arrests were made.
