    I understand that one guy (hopefully anyone with a gun) had a gun that was...gasp, gasp...loaded.

    PHOENIX (AP) - About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday—the latest incidents in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president.
    The man with the rifle declined to be identified but told The Arizona Republic that he was carrying the assault weapon because he could. "In Arizona, I still have some freedoms," he said.
    Interesting how it suddenly changes from a military-style rifle to an evil assault weapon in just four paragraphs.

    Good for him. I am glad the secret service kept their hands off. Plus the guy being black, people could not say his motives was racist.

    My only hope is that all this is part of a "true awakening" in America.

    Apathy has had a stranglehold on this country for more than a generation and this country is at a precipice! A lot of people don't think that is true, but it is.

    This health care initiative has nothing to do with health care and everything to do with a final push for the government to circumvent the Constitution in order to gain control over virtually every aspect of our lives.

    Tea Parties, Town Hall meetings, opposition to the government run health care, bailouts against the will of the populous, Czars taking control of payroll for private business. We really are facing the brink of a total change of our way of life and loss of liberty.

    As long as this wave of public outcry does not fade... we may be able to turn back the tide.

    I pray that we can do it!

    In the words of that "Great Orator, Obama, The Chosen One..." I say...

    Yes We Can, Yes We Can!

    Assault Rifle carried at Obama protest in AZ

    azcentral.com blogs - : Man with assault rifle at Obama rally sparks concerns

    Panic! Man with a gun!

    "Because I can do it," Chris said when asked why he brought guns to the rally at 3rd and Washington streets. "In Arizona, I still have some freedoms left."

    Amazing someone carried a loaded gun and it didn't kill anyone.....weird.
    The Second Amendment ...... Because crime SHOULD be a hazardous occupation.

    If you want to piss off a conservative, lie to him.
    If you want to piss off a liberal, tell him the truth.

    I think that they indicated that this man was a Pro Obama supporter as he was in the group supporting Obama.

    You know that the Secret Service had snipers on him and other armed members.

    Good on you, Chris. He never said a lot but standing there exercising his 2nd Amendment rights spoke profoundly. dude, whoever you are, that took some brass ones.

    I was surprised though that the so called assault weapon didn't kill or harm anyone. the left is incredulous that what Chris did is a sacred, protected right in our country.

    He did nothing Illegal,I'm surprised they didn't point out all the cars with drivers that could potentially ram the presidential limo.I guarantee you the SS was in civvys close enough to Ma Bell (Reach Out And Touch)him if necessary.What they will never know is how many people were CCing at the rally

    I bet Rahm and holder are foaming at the mouth. "Thinking how dare they"

    The guy is probably on a no fly list now.

    Worse than that, one local news-babe described it on the air as a "machine gun."
