Just as occurred in New Hampshire, an Obama event in Phoenix had protestors with loaded guns.  About a dozen gun-toting citizens, one with a military-style rifle, were outside the convention center where Obama was addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

 

A man, who decided not to give his name, was walking around the pro-health care reform rally at Third and Washington streets, with a pistol on his hip and an AR-15 (a semi-automatic assault weapon) on a strap over his shoulder.

 

“Because I can do it,” he said when asked why he was armed. “In Arizona, I still have some freedoms.”

 



If you notice, the banner in this video says, “ACORN activist poses as right wing gun nut anti Obama prostester in Phoenix.”  As BET points out, there is no evicence to support this, but it does show how some right wingers are embarrassed enough about what their own do so they blame their actions on the left.


But there was no evidence to support that claim, and in a separate YouTube video, the man espoused clearly conservative views, not only about health care, but about Second Amendment rights.
