Taking a loaded gun to a protest

I’m sure by now you have all seen the picture of the guy with a loaded gun strapped on his leg at the protest in New Hampshire, near where the President was speaking. The guy was on Hardball last night and said his gun was loaded. According to New Hampshire laws it was legal as an eagle for him to bring his loaded gun as long as he was on private property, in this case it was on church grounds.

Let’s be honest, no matter the local laws do any us of think if a man had brought a loaded gun to a protest where bush was speaking that he would have been harassed if not taken away? As I recall people wearing anti bush t-shirts to places where bush was speaking were told to leave. Things surely have changed.

Passive-Aggressive intimidation of a black man who they believe is going to take away his weapons.
I'm sure there were multiple Secret Service agents that had him in the cross-hairs of their scopes.

You notice how anti-Obama people are not relegated to "protest" areas that are cordoned off and positions many blocks away? Yeah, bush was afraid of the people. Obama... not so much.

C'mon, the Black Panthers are always harassing The Man. Can't blame the Super Patriot.

I think it was a terrible mistake not to disarm the guy. A threat is a threat, on church grounds it's especially heinous.
