Man carries assault rifle to Obama protest — and it’s legal

PHOENIX, Arizona (CNN) — A man toting an assault rifle was among a dozen protesters carrying weapons while demonstrating outside President Obama’s speech to veterans on Monday, but no laws were broken. It was the second instance in recent days in which weapons have been seen near presidential events.
A man is shown legally carrying a rifle at a protest against President Obama on Monday in Phoenix, Arizona.

Video from the protest in Phoenix, Arizona, shows the man standing with other protesters, with the rifle slung over his right shoulder.

Phoenix police said authorities monitored about a dozen people carrying weapons while peacefully demonstrating.

“It was a group interested in exercising the right to bear arms,” police spokesman Sgt. Andy Hill said.

    Given how the MSM went nuts over that guy in the NE packing a pistol, I’d have to say…..yes, very different.

    I favor open carry, but the right to bear arms includes the duty to bear them responsibly.

    Taking an M4 clone to a peaceful political rally is a touch overkill, although the guy did make his point very clearly.
