    Dozen Armed With Guns Protest Obama Speech

    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

    Wished I was there..........Ed

    That's a rather simplistic statement. Do you think the Secret Service went out for doughnuts?

    Where was this, I want to see it.

    It was in Phoenix, Arizona, where its legal to carry ... You see people all the time with side arms but seldom with a rifle so I guess that would be an exception to the rule ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    If I haven't screwed it up, the link above will get you to a CNN article on the subject. A Secret Service spokesman was quoted in that article as follows:

    "Asked whether the individuals carrying weapons jeopardized the safety of the president, Donovan said, "Of course not."

    The individuals would never have gotten in close proximity to the president, regardless of any state laws on openly carrying weapons, he said. A venue is considered a federal site when the Secret Service is protecting the president and weapons are not allowed on a federal site, he added.

    ..., the men carrying weapons were outside the venues where Obama was speaking."

    Sure as heck, I screwed it up. Here's the link.

    If that doesn't work, the article can be found on the Drudge Report website.
