This does my heart good. (UPDATED) Man at Obama rally with GUN.

He's packin' heat. Legal as the day is long.

Clearly from the point of view of the anchor, it would be mystifying if the man pictured with the AR-15 was anti Obama. I mean, after all, he's "African American."

I don't care one way or the other, there were several men packing there, and it was not the only AR-15 in the crowd. Reportedly, our "African American" friend said he carried the gun, because he could.

UPDATE: The man is clearly not an Obama Supporter. Hat tip to Pat Dollard at Young Americans.

It is funny to watch the news guys stammer and stutter over the concept of an armed citizen. They readily accept and endorse police with weapons but not the general population that al police come from.

Sure, a man has the RIGHT to freedo of the press, but why would he actally try to use it? Is he sending a message about health care?

And of course the blatant racism that it is somehow much worse to have a gun around THIS president. Because he is so much more important than all the others? Or because he is so clean and articulate?
