This one is sure to provoke some strong opinions. An Arizona man brought his assault rifle to a protest against President Obama's health care plan yesterday in Phoenix. The President was there giving a speech to a veterans group.
The rifle toting man also had a handgun holstered at his hip and a full clip sticking out of his back pocket. And he wasn't alone. Apparently there were about a dozen armed protesters. While they were protesting the health care plan, they decided to kill two birds with one Uzi and make a statement about the right to bear arms.
Since there's no longer a law against assault rifles and no law against carrying a non-concealed weapon without a permit in Arizona, no charges or arrests were made. I think this can best be described as a slippery slope. The right to bear arms is one of the fundamental rights Americans have. And boy do we love our guns.
