Men With Guns Outside Obama Event. Who Cares?

Huffington Post story headline: "Man Carrying Semi-Automatic Assault Rifle And Pistol Outside Obama Event." According to the report, "About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with an AR-15 assault rifle, milled among protestors outside an event where President Obama was giving a speech Monday in Phoenix."

My question: Who cares? According to the police, the protestors didn't need permits since Arizona is an open carry state (like many Western states). No crimes were committed and no one was arrested. The guys did it knowing it would cheese off the liberal press and get them some publicity. Mission accomplished.

How many there were carrying concealed? :)

I really liked reading that story. Too bad it was not done when he was in Belgrade...
