    I don't see what the obsession is with guns. If I had my way I would just get rid of them. They're good for nothing but killing.

    I question how close these guys were to the Obama event at all. One would think that if they were within a mile of the place, Secret Service would have beat them down and dragged them off.

    No gun-related crimes were committed.

    This is a non-story.

    As I peer outside my window right now, I see a truck driving down the street with a gun rack and a few rifles.

    I'm not going to begrudge these people exercising their constitutional rights.

    They got so many people here in Jersey fearful of guns, the only way i can see a truck with a gun rack is in the southern section where the law enforcement is almost non exsistent in some areas.

    You mean like Switzerland, where it's legal to own fully automatic rifles and the crime rate is a fraction of ours?

    I'm pretty blah about gun rights/control etc, but I really don't see the purpose of bringing them to such events.

    Doesn't matter how close they were to Obama or any other congressional member, what purpose does it serve? If it's just to say you can, then I think that's a dumb reason.

    Ranks right up there with the lady bringing a Rosa Parks poster to the town hall meeting.

    You're exactly right. It's just as asinine and useless.

    Waving around AR-15s outside of a presidential speech is a non-story?

    ITs legal correct? Are all legal things illegal now? Is it wrong to do if its legal?

    I await your response when you twist it all around to suit your needs. :D

    It's non-story in that it's perfectly legal.

    However, WG's point supersedes mine; carrying guns to a political rally is asinine.

    Exactly. The legality doesn't wash it of its stupidity.

    Yeah I'm sure Geneva has crazy scary ghettos. France and Germany would be better comparisons. Anyhow here is the murder and aggravated assault rates dropped precipitously after the Brady bill was passed.
