What the heck is going on? I've read several reports stating that 12 people with assault rifles were wandering about outside the building at which President Obama was holding a Town Hall meeting. There has also been an increase in right-wing militia activity.
Maybe it's just me, but as a person who came of age in the early 1970's, I get nervous when people other than the Secret Service appear at a presidential event toting loaded guns. Heck, when Dubya was president a person could be arrested for simply wearing an anti-Bush t-shirt in the hand-picked audience of one of his events. Can you imagine what would have happened if an anti-war protester had appeared at a Bush event armed?
It's only a matter of time before one of these
What a crazy country!
