HE HAD A GUN AND NOTHING HAPPENED

From New Hampshire to Arizona, Americans openly carrying firearms have been seen outside presidential appearances. The most remarkable thing about this is that some find this behavior to be remarkable.
…The Second Amendment was added to our Constitution to ensure that the individual right to keep and bear arms not be infringed. Infringement would impair the proper functioning of the militia which had been America’s homeland security system all through colonial times and well into our republican era.
The armed attendees made it clear that they were exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Zero tolerance of firearms has become so extreme that even a picture of a gun can get a student kicked out of school. The presence of armed citizens helps correct the notion that guns are inherently dangerous.
…In addition to the educational value of going about openly armed, the presence of such citizens has another positive impact. Real homeland security is being maintained. The Secret Service is tasked with protecting the president and other select individuals — and nobody else.
For those who object to openly armed citizens being present near presidential events, do they have any concern for the wellbeing of those who do not benefit from Secret Service protection?
Rosie O’Donnell comes to mind here…you know, the idiot who thinks that guns kill people (I’m sure in the same way she thinks her silverware makes her fat). She doesn’t want anyone to have Second Amendment rights (proving she should be kicked out of this country) and yet hires private, armed body guards.
Additionally, I love how the left went ballistic (no pun intended) because a dissenter not only attended one of Obama’s Town Hall meetings, but did so fully armed. Obviously they don’t want anyone exercising their First OR Second Amendment rights in the near vicinity of a President charged with upholding those rights…
Finally, I don’t remember them being outraged when THEY exercised THEIR “freedom of speech” by writing a book on how to assassinate President Bush.
See how ridiculously inconsistent these fools are? Zheesh.
