2nd Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

"I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians."
- George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

Yet more weapons show up at an Obama rally...

...and this time they brought an AR!

Not to turn this into a black/white issue, but you can obviously tell that the bearer of this AR (nicely equipped with a EOTech halo site) is an African-American gentleman. I remember during the Kostric incident last week how much the news media made about the extra security needed for our 44th President because he was the first black elected to the nations highest office. I have said before how the 2nd Amendment applies to ALL of us regardless of race, gender, political affiliation and what have you.

According to the report there were several weapons in the crowd, including other AR rifles. I love it how the media made a big deal about how Arizona has an "open carry law", big deal so does Ohio. If somebody carries here openly they are within the legal right to do so also, whoopie!

Anyway, I am sure this "bringing out the big guns" story will be heard for quite a bit.
