Armed Protesters Carry Guns Near Obama Appearance, Police Say

• Bloomberg
Armed protesters asserting their right to bear arms, including a man with a rifle slung over his shoulder, gathered yesterday near a Phoenix convention hall where President Barack Obama spoke, a police spokesman said.

The protesters were taking advantage of an Arizona law that allows people to carry unconcealed guns, Phoenix Police Department spokesman Andy Hill said. Police made no arrests.

Oh brother. Heavens help me if I should come to town, minding my own business and inadvertantly come withing 1000 yards of a politician.

By lands, perhaps it's becoming dangerous to be around these people. You just can't tell what they'll do.
