Honestly, I'm a fairly big gun supporter, and I firmly believe that not only should Americans have guns, but they should have more guns.
However, doesn't anyone else believe that it's inappropriate to bring your guns solely as a political statement into close proximity with the president? Honestly, I see this as no different than trying to bring a loaded weapon into court, or into schools, for no other reason than to attract attention or intimidate.
My gun protects my life, and my liberty. It's not a fashion symbol, it's not a political statement, and it's not an item of pride. Anyone that caries a fucking assault rifle to a debate has no intention on using it, let alone using it for what it is intended, and, quite frankly, brings shame on us all.
There's a difference between your rights, and what's right.
